I booked a rental in Jan 2018 and I see that the same one is available for the dates I booked on Airbnb. My husband went through the workflow on Airbnb just to double check and it allowed him to book and pay using credit card.
Also, a recent post showed issues with the rental (mould and water damage). I wrote to the owner about it. Did not hear back. I am unable to ask the question on TripAdvisor contact form (the submit button just keeps spinning). Quite stumped on how to resolve this. I have already paid the deposit on TripAdvisor and will soon be auto charged. I do not want to cancel the booking, just want to know if the apartment issues are resolved and what is the deal with Airbnb showing the same place available!
