The photographs of Martin's place appear to have been snapped a long time ago when his place was spick-and-span. The place is actually dirty and is poorly maintained. Various fittings are worn out & vulnerable. The proximity of Westfield mall & Shepherd's Bush from Martin's place…

Response from Martin:
Dear Tushar, Thank you for yur public and private review and assessment of the apartment and my managing it. I have responded privately to you and I will not raise your issues here. Except to say that you were allowed a flexible checkout - the alternative to packing your luggage, letting you take a set of keys to return later nearer your time schedule would have been to insist that you checkout completely as per the house rules; whether I had any guests checking in is not really any of your business; the photographs were all taken by an Airbnb approved photographer and the only major change is the digital tv which replaced the one shown in one of the pictures; you had plenty of time during your stay to raise any issues, some of which may well have been able to be resolved - I might even have been able to move you to an alternative property of mine and, finally, the proximity to Westfield and Shepherds Bush is a geographical fact, the time taken to get there will depend on the mode of transport used, whether motorised or pedestrian. I hope that you have better luck with your next Airbnb stay and can research it more thoroughly before checking in and being disappointed.

Martin was very welcoming and left the unit full of yummy treats to snack on in the kitchen. The area was wonderful as it was safe and close to shops and transport. It was great to come home to this cosy, warm unit where you could get washing done and prepare meals if required. W…

There is a full length mirror on a door of one of the fitted wardrobes but maybe you didn't open that particular door! UK law does not allow a power point in a bathroom but if you meant one for a shaver, the point is noted and it will be considered for the future. Apologies if it made the stay less than 100% comfortable. Martin

The flat is lovely and very well-equipped. Martin was very efficient at communicating beforehand, and gave excellent information and tips. While the flat is a reasonable distance from the city centre, the bus and tube connections are excellent. The 49 or C1 bus takes you right to…
