Reviews for Faye

Steven

July 2016 | Makeup Hair And Photo Studio

Used her space for a boudoir photoshoot and the location far exceeded my expectations. Her space was beautifully decorated and awash in lovely indirect natural lighting which was perfect for photography. Free street parking right in front of the building was a pleasant surprise. Faye was available and helpful throughout the entire process.

Faye's Response:

Thanks so much for coming in!

Faye is absolutely amazing. She's quick, responsive, and SO accommodating. The space is gorgeous in real life and every bit of decor has been carefully curated. It's incredibly accessible from the front entrance and there is parking right out front. Would definitely book again.

Faye never specified that I had to message her the day before to get the access code for the studio. I messaged Faye an hour and a half prior to arriving there with no response. I called several times but all I got was voicemail. Luckily we had a hairstylist there that knew the number to Faye's assistant and we finally were let in 15-20mins after the booking time. If we didn't have the hairstylist there, I'm sure we wouldn't have been able to get in. Overall, the studio was very nice and beautifully decorated.

Faye's Response:

Thanks for sharing this publicly Mae. A mistake did happen and as you can see from our impeccable reviews, it was a one off. Most renters do get in touch with us to check on the access details so I am sure we can both be to blame for having forgotten this crucial communication. Glad you like the studio.

***This warning is intended for all of those who are potentially considering renting this studio space.*** As an avid Airbnb user, I understand the general protocol that both owners and renters ought to abide by when conducting an agreement. Unfortunately, my first time utilizing thisopenspace was a horrific experience, primarily due to Faye's extremely unethical and manipulative behavior as a supposed "professional business woman." Upon initial contact with Faye, we were able to quickly establish an agreement that entailed me having the studio from 3pm-2am on Saturday, May 6th, 2017. As the day approached, and 3pm rolled around, Faye contacted me asking whether or not it was possible to come at 4pm, without any mention of reimbursement for the lost, and already paid for, hour. Her reasoning stemmed from the fact that she had overbooked her previous clients and was in a rut. As a strong believer in good business relations, especially from the get-go, I decided to "take the punch" and told Faye that we would wait until the previous group had finished, before moving in. To our unpleasant surprise, the place resembled a pig-sty. The floors and counter tops had residual debris that the previous group had left behind, the multiple garbage bins were all full and needed to be taken out, and there were dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. At this point, not only did we lose an hour of our time that, once again, we paid for, but we now had to clean up the mess that the previous users had left behind. Essentially, we were now 2-3 hours behind schedule, solely because of Faye's overbooking and inability to provide her new clients with a clean studio. Once again, we took the punch. As the night went on, Faye checked in a multitude of times (via text) to make sure that we cleaned up after our event was over, since she had new clients coming in at 6am for a photoshoot. The sheer amount of messages that she composed were overwhelming and harassing in nature (to say the least), however, I clued in that she had, again, overbooked and was short on time to inspect the studio herself. I assured Faye that her studio would be left in pristine condition. The next day, around 2pm, Faye texted me saying that she was horrified with the condition that the studio was left in and that she had to call a plumber and a cleaning maid. Her further text messages were emotionally enraged and resembled an extremely unstable individual, a trait that impedes all successful businesses. I assured her that we had tidied up and that the studio was in immaculate condition when we left, but that I was willing to come by to inspect the supposed "mess" with her. Unfortunately, Faye never replied. Instead, I was contacted by thisopenspace at which point I was told that $175 of my damage deposit was going to be deducted. Quite unsatisfied with the verdict, I asked to see the plumbing and cleaning service invoices, as I am entitled, both morally and legally, to know what I am potentially paying for. Thisopenspace agreed, and contacted Faye, requesting the invoices. A few days later they sent me a picture of a cheque, with no ID number, no issuing persons name or signature, and told me that that's what Faye sent as proof of payment for the cleaning services. Furthermore, the plumbing was now apparently done by her, so there was no invoice for that, nor were there receipts for justifying a $75 self-plumbing service. However, there were pictures that Faye sent to thisopenspace as "proof" of the mess. The pictures portrayed a poorly staged, and clearly set-up environment, one that could have only been created by an incompetent and raging individual. It was evident that Faye was attempting to steal more money. In the the end, Faye's overbooking tendencies and desperate attempts at stealing the damage deposit only led me to conclude that she is in financial turmoil of sorts, either debt or personal issues. The damage deposit has unfortunately been taken, however, legal actions are underway. Thus, if you do not enjoy being manipulated, lied to, overwhelmed, and overall have a sense for justice, I would not recommend renting Faye's studio. Her attitude towards doing business is disgusting and, well, so is the back alley view from the balcony that she hides so very well in all of her photos. - Your fellow neighbour

Faye's Response:

I have been very careful not to be rude toward you Luka. Your claims in this horrific review are nothing but lies. It shocks me that you would even want to write such a mean, attack on a person who has done nothing to harm you. You wrote to me to tell me what wonderful time you guys had had and of course, myself and the other people that live/work in this building know that. We have a building Facebook group and there are pictures of men sleeping outside on the lawn with a bottle of Crown Royal laying next to them (which I had to pick up the next day). There were two noise complaints. My studio was turned upside down Luka... I asked you to do me a favour and come at 3.30pm instead of 3pm...not 4pm. We have a text feed that says this. You said you were running late anyway so it was no issue. It wasn't because we were over booked but it was because one of our clients was running late and I figured, why not ask Luka if it is okay to come 30 minutes later. And it was. You said you were running late anyway. If you wanted 1/2 hour rental ($17.50) reimbursed, I would be more than happy to give it to you. You didn't ask so I didn't know that that had upset you so much. I am sorry. I can certainly ask thisopenspace to send you back $17.50. I am more than happy to agree to that. I wish you had mentioned it before. Please don't lie and say you arrived to our studio being a pig sty...that is so hurtful. We run a pristine location and always present it this way. The only time it has ever been a pig sty was after you were here. I know you guys had been drinking a lot and perhaps thought you had left the place pristine but you really didn't. And no, I did not stage the images. That is extremely insulting. I took those images while I was shaking and almost crying, looking at what somebody had done to my business after I had clarified our agreement time and time again. I told you I couldn't rent it to you if you didn't leave it exactly how you found it but you promised me you would...I don't know what went wrong here. I can confess that a bin or two may have been half full and I should have taken the time to empty them completely for you, I do apologize for that. But the rest of your claims are absolute lies and I don't know why you feel the need to publicly lie and insult me when I have done nothing to deserve it. I had cleaned the studio 30 minutes before you arrived and after I had left,there was one model and one photographer in there for 30 minutes. Two people I know very very well and I know they would not have left the studio untidy in any way. Claiming it took you 2-3hours to clean up in absolutely absurd. Considering I have never made a claim on thisopenspace before and have fantastic reviews, I am sure you can see that I have been very genuine. I charged you the $100 cleaning fee that you should have been charged in the first place. You were not charged any clean fee under the agreement that you would do it yourself and you didn't. So that was completely justified. I am sorry that the cleaner I hired was self employed and not from a big business with a business number. Most cleaners don't... I then asked for another $75 for my time. My time spent dealing with a toilet full of vomit, blood and all of the other sorts of sewage that was clogging it. My time spent talking to the two people who issued noise complaints. Luka, you left a big huge mess and I did not ask for anything but cost reimbursement. Your claims I was harassing you with texts are really unfortunate. Again, look through our text feed. I texted you about three times nearer the end of the night to ask you to turn off the music as I was getting noise complaints from people who live in the building. I think this is completely understandable.

This place was perfect for my sister's bridal shower! Communicating with Faye was easy via messaging or text and I was able to see the venue beforehand. Very nicely decorated :) so not much needed to be done to add decor for my white/gold themed shower. The kitchen was nicely stocked with several serving bowls and utensils that I was able to borrow. If you have more than 15 people, I suggest bringing/renting your own stools for more seating. Would definitely rent again :)

This was an amazing experience. The price point was excellent. Faye was easily accessible for questions and inquiries. I was so so so happy with the whole ordeal. ALSO!! I was doing a photoshoot there and Faye had arranged for my hair and makeup to be done by one of the most darling ladies who worked for her, that is what these lovlies do! It was perfect! The pictures were amazing! couldn't have been happier. Amy
