Too good to be true?

After hours of searching for an apartment to rent for 1 month (most offer only minimum 6 months), came across a decent one today. It is listed online for £26 per night. I made contact with owner and arranged a viewing. After seeing apartment, asked the rental amount for 1 month. SHe says 10 Million vietnam dong. Then I ask if electric and bills are included. She says yes.

I've asked her again, and it's been confirmed that Electric, water, management fee, internet is all included. Actually, everything included except parking.

What do think?..is it too good to be true or a genuine article?

I read the three reviews for the property. Two are excellent. However there is one review commenting on how good the view is, and also about landlord being attentive. Then it says 'everything okay for a 1-3 day short trip' (this is translated from Vietnamese by the way).

What could this possibly mean?...Does it mean, she has stayed 1-3 days and is commenting that 'everything was okay' but wouldn't stay longer or does it mean she has stayed longer but is offering a hint that it is only suitable for 1-3 days?

Yes

I monitor the adds on several sites everyday and noticed long term rental rates have gone down recently. There seems to be an oversupply. Places that went for $500 per month a year ago are being advertised at $350-$400.
