We dispute what Martha says, we rented and contracted with Bogota Casa for years.

1.

When we rented our unit via Bogota Casa ALWAYS WE WERE PAID AND ALWAYS WE HAVE VERY GOOD CLIENTS. The unit was cleaned afterwards and many tiume we have re bookings from the same clients. Does this sound like a bad operator?? We actually have looked into these bad reviews and find that most are a malicious attempt to give them a bad name online.

Out of 75 travelers to Bogota we contacted less than 2% gave a bad review to Bogota Casa at those at best were due to what we think are just miserable people. We always enjoyed dealing with Bogota Casa and found Trevor to be extremely professional and honest.

2. We actuallyy rented Marthas apartment one time for our large family when we needed more space. WHAT A BLOODY MESS!!!!!

It was dirty smelly and just all around a rip off for the price she wants.

We booked via Bogota Casa but it was all the representation of the vendor not Bogota Casa as to the shortfalls of the unit. DISREGARD THE BAD POSTING HERE ON BOGOTA CASA AND THINK FOR YOURSELF MANY OTHER REVIEWS DONT JIVE Even the other operators in Bogota say they are good

Martha is no honest

Signed an honest soul

I am Martha, for who Bogota-house discussion was generated. I do not know much English, so please forgive my mistakes.

Trevor went to our apartment, took photos and offered us personally publishing and rent our apartment through Bogota.casa.

He always charged more expensive because the clientes should get your gain, at first he paid cash right, but then, he asked to make the payment in your paypal account, he did not pay what was due us, gave us just what he wanted, I wrote and complained, he never paid us, and blocked me so I could not reach, and not satisfied spoke bad of my brother Alberto and me. Trevor is not the honest man who many people think.

We were told to rent from Martha and that her units were good quality. BAD IDEA!!!

Smell, dirty, overpriced and found hair in my sheets and condoms under the bed!!!! WOULD YOU WANT TO STAY THERE??

Look elsewhere

Guys we have been renting apartments for 6 years in Bogota (aptscolombia.com)from what I have heard bogotacasa is pretty reliable and they have been operating for as long as us here in Bogota. What I would suggest is always check that the company you are renting off has offices in Bogota and a local number you can call to make sure that they are not scammers. Speak to someone in the office before booking and don't trust companies with less than 20 listings.

I have used their services on two occasions and have foung Alberto to be very reliable.

The apartment was as advertised and he bent over backwards to please. I plan to use them again on my next trip to Bogota.

I have stayed in this apartment. I see also that most of these comments are coming from the same place in Edmonton, Alberta. I guess Martha's competition are not afraid to stoop to this level. A very sad state of affairs.

That is a luxury apartment they rent. And when I rented there it was very clean. No sense in getting into a shouting match here.

The negative reviews are not written by anyone who has stayed in this wonderful apartment.

Gracy

I don't get it. Why does Bogotacasa.com still have a listing for that apartment if it is so bad?

This sounds like he is trying to scam them or something. Weird.

Daved Jacobs never has been with welovebogota. Adminstration registrer doesn't have his name and his passport name. believe that you see. That person doesn't know about God, he can to say anything, but the Lord knows the true, and why he is doing that, the real reason why he is doing that.

Sincerelly,

Martha

#487109

Dave Jacobs you are are not telling the truth. I think you are in competition with Martha and this is what you do to get her clients.

I have stayed at Martha's and non of the things said here art true. Shame on you for doing this!

#485224

@DaveJacobs

"charged us for towels, toilet paper as well.... can you imagine when we checked in there was nothing well when we asked for toilet paper Martha wanted us to pay her 2 dollars!!! My god what a cheapo."

I missed this and need to say something. This is a false statement and made-up to slam Martha. It is terrible when people resort to such lies.

Everything is included. I know because I rent from Martha all the time.

So sad.

BOGOTA APARTMENTS Bogota Casa Scammers

I tried renting BOGOTA APARTMENTS through this websites, but they tried scamming me! I reserved a place with a man named Trevor who is the owner of www.bogotacasa.com. When I arrived in Bogota he did not have the place to rent to me he promised. Instead, he offered me a more expensive place. The old bait and switch scam. I turned my back on this scammer Trevor at BOGOTACASA.COM! There are lots of complaints about this guy all over the Internet. I later contacted the people who had their a website LISTED on his website and they told me he did not have permission to do this and refuses to take their listing of his site. This guy is a broker and does not own any property of his own. He is a middle man who charges outrageous prices for any of his listings regarding BOGOTA APARTMENTS!

Bogota Casa has been our rental agency for many years now, every trip to Bogota is like home away from home. We have dealt direct with Trevor many times. This review seems like slander.

Give them a try all our experiences have been excellent.

We stay with Bogota Casa when we travel to see our family in Bogota every year. Trevor has made our reservation every year for us. Service excellent + a very professional owner/operator as well. We always reserve in Zona Rosa and our unit has never failed us yet!!

We will keep staying here. We hope this review is helpful to others.

Bogota Casa rents 5 of our units in Bogota and Lima, 6 years we have contracted with them. They are very professional, our apartments are maintained in excellent condition and top rental rate is maintained as well. We love them!! Every time we travel to Rio we rent one of his apartments there. Give them a try............... we dont buy this kind of slander review. Its too bad such garbage is posted on line. We see many good comments here from others as well, it seems Bogota Casa has a strong worldwide following.

Keep up the good work Bogota Casa

We have read some of these reviews....... we have dealt with Trev from Bogota Casa for years. This bait and switch complaint must be from a unrealistic consumer, or possibly just a person with a beef with Trev. We rent on a regular basis from him in Bogota, Lima, Sao Paulo and Rio. Always delivers on the goods and quite often the little extras too like beer in the fridge when we arrive, milk bread and some eggs too!!! His driver has always been there for us whatever the hour!!! Listen we are part of a multinational company many others we know use Bogota Casa as well.

Top quality Good service

Very professional

#678786

service is excellent apartments very clean and well located

#674661

We travel twice a year to Bogota, always stay in Bogota Casa Apartments. We have tried others but find Bogota Casa to be the best. Always have our apartment ready when we arrive, very well located clean units as well. Price very modest for the area of the city. We have actually met Trevor a few times, no problems thought he was quite a nice fellow for a gringo.

Good Service We Always Stay Here

Alberto.

#671718

We have 3 apartments in Bogota, Trevor from Bogota Casa has rented our units for years. Always good clients with payment every time.

We have never had any issues with Bogota Casa, the service is exceptional. Our apartments are well looked after and kept very clean.

He actually has maintained an occupancy rate of 90+% year after year. This guy is great, we just wish he would open up in Germany to rent our apartments here as well!!
