I don’t include kitchen privileges with the room I rent in my home. Guests have a fridge, hot pot, coffee & tea in their room, and several great food spots a5 min walk around the corner.
I was still figuring it all out when my 4th-ever booking showed up - guests from Thailand (he was a very large, very unpleasant American), who arrived with an enormous box of food “prepared in her village” that they were bringing to a family reunion in San Francisco. His greeting was a grunt, followed by, “where’s the freezer”?
Yes, I did- nubie that I was, I fetched a cooler, and emptied MY things so they could store THEIRS:astonished:
They then napped and hung around the common areas all day for 3 out of their 4-day stay. They needed the heat set high because they dressed in bits of underwear & shorts in our winter. Up at night, Face-timing friends back home, they are the ONLY guests I’ve had to speak to about noise…over & over.
Their last night, I came home to a foul fish odor ( it lingered for days!) and to them sitting at the kitchen table in front of a lavish spread of reunion leftovers. They barely greeted me.
I taught school in Thailand, and was so looking forward to their visit…
I’ve since had 2 bookings from Thailand who more than made up for this pair!
Good luck with the visit -let us know how it goes!
I reviewed them honestly, they didn’t bother.
