“My experience as host”

Written on: 26/07/2014

Windu is a competent company, despite being of, should focus to Europe's market to be more efficient. I wish their calendar could be export. If a make a reserve at any other booking company. I have to go there to alter calendar. It may bring misundertandings… Read Full Review

“Overall, I am satisfied”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by sujas9 (1 review written)

All in all I am very pleased with Wimdu, but I think there should be a slightly tighter policy on the calendar, so it is updated to when the homes are available. And there should be an inpact, when the landlords dont answer a potential customer. When that is said, I am very satisfied with Wimdu, which I think provides a good service… Read Full Review

Everybody around me was very helpfull. Kind regards Anni… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2014 by Bruno404 (1 review written)

The website was very easy to acces. What I did not like was that you had to pay in advance before you knew if your reservation was accepted!I have not yet went on holiday so I can not make a review about the appartment… Read Full Review

“Posting Total Price to Potential Clients”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by FernandaFarrell (1 review written)

Wimdu was great in helping me after the fact, so at least I know now for the future. I had someone who was obviously not an experienced user of Wimdu or similar sites trying to rent my apartment for seven nights. But they were confused when the price I was charging, my weekly rate of 450 euro, did not match up with what they were told they would have to pay when they tried to make a reservation. They were unaware that there was a fee, and eventually stopped dealing with me because of this… Read Full Review

“listing not up--calender blocked but not by me”

Written on: 08/07/2014 by chris4u (1 review written)

when i spoke/email with your staff member on 30 june. it would have been nice to review my account and let me know the problem--i had no idea that someone had blocked my calender (not i)- or check into my site and why i had not received any bookings for 3 years, when i did originally when i joined. i am disappointed to say the least. you might want to check your competitor airbnb--they are right on top of things and charge a minimal fee. maybe my listing is not needed, which would make me… Read Full Review

“message box”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by Clarkegd25 (1 review written)

I have sent my review about that to wimdu before but nothing changed. Message box must be improved. It must contain these details on top of it: dates, number of people, flat name, guest name total price that host will get. Otherwise host wasting a lot of time to ask all these questions. and loosing consantration to settle reservation which is the most important issue… Read Full Review

“good and frindly but needs improvment ”

Written on: 21/06/2014 by Jon309 (1 review written)

Windu, is one of the many companies using the Airbnb idea, and though I have had some very nice guests coming from their site, (I'm a host) I personally find that their business model doesn't have the best interest of the host in mind, only the guests the company. They strongly advise us, the hosts, to provide cheaper price, respond quickly to every message and accept as many reservation as you are asked, you're not allowed to refuse any reservation, or you are but you get penalised for it and… Read Full Review

“good”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by Kentvh1973 (1 review written)

We like to see more transparent communication. e.g wimdu said there is a guest complaint. We've asked what was that, but didn't get any response. If we do not know our mistake/s how to improve? We haven't heard any complaint by any guests directly. Still waiting to hear what was the complaint… Read Full Review

“nice appartment but bad service”

Written on: 17/06/2014 by 126Hahn (1 review written)

Please look carefully, this review may be of an another appartment(compare the nummers), than you want to rent! Also the photographs are sometimes from another appartment! We liked our apparment, but a lot was not functioning. Wifi was not there, but brought the next day; none off the 4 televisions were working; the koffiemaker was broken and not replaced although we asked for it several times. We duly regret that the service of the host was not good. We had to call Wimdu, to help us to get… Read Full Review

“In the begining I was disappointed from WIMDU, becasue...”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by ViktorValkov (1 review written)

In the begining I was disappointed from WIMDU, becasue when I booked an apartment my money went instantly into WIMDU account, but few hours later the owner denied my booking. After several days, when I finaly found another apartment (with a support of another agency) I couldn't pay the amount, because the limit of my credit card was not enough, thanks to this. My money was still blocked in the bank. I suggest you to chage the manner of taking instantly money from the guests, if there is not… Read Full Review

“Payment enquire, and address correction”

Written on: 10/06/2014 by Camila472 (1 review written)

I was expecting, to receive a confirmation payment email, from you guys, at least 24hrs after, the guests checking in. But the guests, have already checked out this morning, and so far I haven't heard anything from you. Also the guest, had a printed sheet with my address details, and they were completely wrong. There was saying Calçada Menino Deus 0, and the post code was completely different. I wonder, if the guest has to contact me, when he/she receives the confirmation, in terms of me… Read Full Review

“A reliable site for renting !”

Written on: 08/06/2014 by LeandroNunez376 (1 review written)

All my apartments have been anounced with the Wimdu without any problem and in three languages. The only big issue happened with another apartment, I've tried to include in the Wimdu site, but after almost a month was cancelled and not approved, without any explanation. In this matter they should improve more a relantionship with the hosts informing what happened and what the hosts should do. Even so, I'm very satisfied with Wimdu that now had improved with a complete calendar price : just few… Read Full Review

“annoyance in Paris”

First the host change the date of arriving,in spite of his agenda. When we arrived on the right address their was nobody there and the telephone number was not correct and no contact was possible. Thanks toour daughter who lives in Paris we could have contact with wimdu, who arranged a new apartment for us. It is a little strange only to have contact via mail. When you are traveling you don't have access to the internet al the time, especially when you have no laptop with you. Maybe is better… Read Full Review
