The owner double booked and my family ended up without a place to stay for New Year’s Eve night! I find it very peculiar that the owner has 2 properties on homeaway website however only one house to rent. Beware of booking with this owner Nicolas Brehm. Very irresponsible and unprofessional. Never answered his phone or messages the night we had arrived to check in and found our rented villa already occupied. We finally got in touch with the owners son, (who supposedly was covering for the owner that night), thanks to the security guard at the property. And when he realized the mistake, he never called back and never again answered his phone. The owner finally responded to us the following day and lied to us saying the other family was approved without his consent to stay another 2 days, however the owner had not known we spoke to the family that night and they too had just checked in that day. The family was surprised and said it could of been them had they only arrived later than us. Imagine how horrified our family was to find out our vacation in DR, that we had booked for months in advance, was ruined. Traveling with children and elderly. Unfortunately we will never forget this.
