Horrible experience I reached out to the owner Steve from a friend who stayed within one if his properties for s few days.
Steve was initially very accommodating providing me with a studio in a fantastic location.
We discussed that I would need at least one week perhaps longer for my stay and He stated that he would keep unit open for possible extension. 2 days prior to my check out I requested an extension as we had discussed during initial booking.
However steve told me he booked the unit for someone else and I’d have to vacate.
Scrambling I found someplace else but while moving to a different property I temporarily left some items in stairwell to accommodate his cleaning for next guest and so I could retrieve them later that day.
Needless to say the phone calls and texts I received from Steve were beyond harassing because I suppose he found my possessions.
I told him I would be back there shortly and only placed in stairwell for a few minutes for purposes of vacationing and that I was returning immediately to obtain them.
He was demanding to know contents and threatened to call police to have them open suitcase which contained linens and cleaning products as I travel with my own.
Steve also stated that if I attempted to retrieve my belongings or returned to building I would be arrested and that he would give them to me.
Not wanting problems I agreed. However he returned some of my belongings but kept those he felt valuable including a vintage Cartier watch.
