Andy is not the host, he is a booking agent. He was extremely deceitful and rude. There were multiple problems with this apartment. There was no hot water and a major ant infestation. I contacted Andy regarding these issues and he said that was 'just normal'. The apartment …

Response from Andy:
The Princess from Hell. I have been hosting on airbnb for over 2 years and this particular guest was the guest from hell. I have over 140 very good or excellent reviews. So people will read the above as total lies. The property concerned, until this guest arrived, also had nothing but 5 star ratings so again that says something. So lets start with the beginning journey of the princess from hell. Before she arrived for her 2 night stay she arranged for a supermarket to arrange shopping to be sent to the flat the day before her arrival. Even though the princess was advised that this was not necessary as the same supermarket has a branch opposite and is open daily from 8am til 10pm, so the same products could have been purchased within 600 yards of the apartment. The night before her arrival I had 7 different drivers on the phone 7 times asking for directions as none of them spoke any English. Finally I arranged for the driver to speak with Jude the house owner in Singhala. The food finally arrived after 6 hours of communication for both myself and the house owner. The food was put into the fridge into the apartment and instead of a thank you from the princess I received a message stating that I was a terrible host and she wanted to cancel the accommodation. She was informed that terms and conditions did not allow this. Her comment was that I was not the host but instead an agent. The property description and my host description clearly states this. I arranged the princess an airport transfer for the standard fee of 1500 rupees and the price was agreed. Upon arrival she complained that there was no hot water, I advised her to speak to the house owner downstairs and her response was “How do I do this?” to which I replied you “walk downstairs”. Jude and his delightful friendly warm family are the hosts and have received nothing but praise from all other guests. Jude advised her that she needed to wait a few moments for the water to heat up. That evening I was then informed of the ant problem and that they were crawling over her head and body. To which I said again inform the house owner downstairs. Jude looked at the ants and there was 2 or 3 that had come inside due to the rain. There was no infestation whatsoever. The 5 star rated apartment is not a building site, the family downstairs were having a new floor laid thats all, this was completed in 2 days and there was no noise whatsoever. The princess then complained that the apartment was too hot and she wanted air conditioning. I advised her that as per the property description that AC was available but for a small fee of 500 rupees a day payable to the house owner. The princess agreed this with the house owner but then afterwards admitted she had no money whatsoever as none of the ATM's worked in Sri Lanka. Even though it took her 2 hours to go through the Arrival Hall of the airport, with my driver waiting patently outside, and here she was advised to change money., but she didnt. Hence why she gave Indian rupees to Jude to cover the AC price. He did NOT steal from her, this is another lie. Jude's son is 14 years old and is not a masseur so why a fully grown woman would allow a 14 year old boy into her room for a massage and then make false rude allogations against him is beyond me. This apartment is indeed suitable for single ladies and in fact last year this apartment was rented to a 61 year old single lady for 2 months who loved the whole experience. I do not get 50% commission from airport transfers as 1500 rupees (9 Euro) is the going rate for an airport pick up, from a trusted driver who knows the property. You probably could find cheaper at the airport as there are a lot of dodgy men that hang around there looking for single ladies to pray upon so for this reason I will always defend my honest and trustworthy driver and not because I make any commission from him. That means you can get an airport transfer, ask him to wait 2 hours outside for just 7500 rupee (4 Euro) Good luck with that!!!! The princess had no money to pay him in any case. The next day the princess informed me that her Indian Visa had not arrived and she wanted to stay longer at the apartment but because she had already been a nightmare I reminded her of the 10am check out and asked her to leave. Plus she had no money!!! She left the apartment 4 hours later for no extra fee. I was totally relieved as this had been the guest from hell so I totally expected these lies as feedback. I have over 140 excellent or very good reviews on airbnb and this property has received nothing but 5 star reviews from ALL OTHER guests. I believe she is a professional con-artist and other hosts should be aware of her activities. She has since tried to recover all her money from airbnb on the prextext of sending false photos (the photos of the downstairs family changing their floor boards) which have nothing to do with the apartment she was actually staying in. The case continues....

This place is clean and very convenient. We only stayed for a few days but it would be easy to live here longterm. The local hosts are great people and made our experience that much more enjoyable. They brought us tea on arrival, kept our room clean and did our laundry for a very…

We spent a week relaxing at this lovely apartment. Great location near the sea with shops and restaurants nearby. Andy was great in his communications and arranged a tuktuk to pick us up from the airport as well as an early checkin.
