BE CAREFUL – THIS IS A SCAM RENTAL.
We saw this beautiful apartment and leapt at the opportunity to stay there. The owner – Rebecca Gomez – conned my wife into giving her a $15,000 “hold fee”, falsely stating that there were others who wanted the apartment and this was the only way to secure it. The next day, after learning that this unlawful conduct occurred, we informed Rebecca that we did not wish to hold the apartment. She had already cashed the check (despite writing that she was waiting for it). Her position was (and remains) “too bad. You sent the check. It’s mine now.”
We tried to reason with her, and even offered to stay in the apartment for three weeks, (and even ultimately proposed that we stay a mere two weeks, and that she keep the $15,000) and still she refused (even though this would have been paying 133% of her proposed rate). She made no efforts to rent the place (it remained unlisted for two weeks, likely so that we would not be able to warn others of this practice).
Do not send this woman one penny unless you are sure that you are not being scammed
