Response from Bailey:
Hello, Good morning or good afternoon depending on where you are in this AIRBNB community. This is a very INTERESTING review from Mr. Chengke Xiao:
I LOVE IT and if it is OK with you ALSO if you have the time to do so with me:
Let’s Read it together
Mr Xiao’s review:” Don’t go there; it's a rubbish place with an extremely high price. I have to use the word cheating. I don't want other people to be cheated.绝不要去住,垃圾地方,房东就是骗钱的,床很破,地方脏,乱收费。非常影响心情。”
I Bailey’s review TO Mr. Chengke Xiao: “It is great experience to have Chengke and his friends actually they are from my home town Chengdu,Sichuan. So it felt so family member visiting me. I was very happy with them.”
Obviously there are two extremely different life attitudes here: I am happy and accept people who you are and whatever coming to my way. While Mr. Xiao’s? Only you can or he can tell. I don’t want to waste my time on this after this public response.
Again if you are still felt interested and have the time to do so:
Let’s analyze together: This holiday place has been and will be visited and my services has been and will be received and reviewed by many guests in the past and in the future. None of my guests will be use exaggerated words such as “a rubbish place with an extremely high price” He then went on in Chinese” 绝不要去住,垃圾地方,房东就是骗钱的,床很破,地方脏,乱收费。非常影响心情。” None of my guests will be out of their way behind my back stating these untrue facts. Same as any other previous and future guests, Mr. Xiao has been given equal opportunity before booking with photos online and past reviews as guidance and also have the opportunity upon arrival to discuss his dissatisfaction with me. IN CONTRAST, Mr. Xiao and his friends and I talked over our cooking of spicy noodles together and he kindly shared some of his meals with me as it is my long time Sichuan food they were cooking. .Their arrival made me homesick momentarily. I have left my hometown for nearly 20 years. He even asked how much my house worth. I said around A$1 million. Then he said” that price is not even can buy a toilet in Beijing, China.”
The place is worth this much as it is a great home away home holiday investment:
1.Good location: experienced and reviewed by many reviews with AIRBNB guests as wells as (URL HIDDEN) guests: just 50 meters to both Cannonvale beach and Whitsunday shopping Center.
2.Good layout with multiple bedrooms and open plan: suitable for small and big group: open plan with upstairs 5 bedrooms (3 air-conditioned, 2 fanned) and downstairs 5 bedrooms (one ensuit and 4 fanned). Between them, there is a lockable (of course open-able too). So it is suitable for small and big group. To save you your booking service fee with AIRBNB, I have reconfigured them into different combination listing to suit your needs without be charged fee twice or more. For example if you need 5 bedrooms for 10 people you can just choose to book the one said 5 bedroom apartment once. BY THE WAY, I do have free standing 3 bedroom ocean and valley view holiday home nearby in holiday letting too, if you want your own space and luxury not be shared, then that is the option.

5.Competitive priced: each room be priced very competitively in AIRLIE BEACH. I couldn’t price my property as per market in China, or in England or in America. As I, the property and the service is based at AIRLIE Beach, so does the price reflected. I have guests give me feedback privately the price is very competitive. Ask the backpacker and caravan price, you would know the fact.
6.New establishment: this means the linen is new and high quality, the establishment is painted inside out one year ago, so it look as new.
7.Owner operator: so I take good care of my property and my business, enjoy and pride of what I do. I welcome you to witness the fact or rely on ANY(INCLUDING THIS ONE) review BUT have the boldness to try it out A DAY WITH YOUR ACCOMMODATION WITH MY HOLIDAY ACCOMMODATION SERVICES. You will know the truth.
Obviously, I couldn’t keep Mr. Xian Chengke happy, even I tried however I have been treated this way. So what would you do if you were me? Let’s Shrug and shake our shoulders and smiles together. Life is too short, let’s toast and enjoy together ,still embracing AIRBNB principles, continue share our spaces, our life journey, bring the world together.
May your day as mine filled with joys and challenges
From your Airlie Beach hostess Bailey
