Here’s what happened. I called Air BnB (very helpful). They said they’d call the guests at 7am the following morning, with a view to re-housing them. I was asked if I’d already conveyed my concerns to the guests, which of course I had (calmly, I might add, I don’t do shouting or nastiness). By the time I was off the phone it was around 1:30am and I went to tell the guests what was going to happen in the morning. While I was in my room with the door shut they had packed up and left. No note, bedroom light left on and door unlocked (it needs a key to lock and of course they left the key indoors when they departed).
I spoke to Air BnB again to say they don’t need to call and re-house the guests because they chose to leave. So now I have to wait for up to 14 days to be sure the guests don’t leave me a bad review. That seems odd, however I think they left out of embarassment and I’m hopeful that will be the end of it.
This morning I found discarded cheese on toast in the bin. So it seems also that they stole some of my cheese (which would explain the horror on the face of the male guest when I got up and he was putting something into the microwave).
I’ve had loads of lovely experiences and won’t be letting the antics of one couple put me off what is a very enjoyable way to avoid having permanent flatmates.
