Well, we’ve had 70 good to great guests, and now we have a creepy guy who knows no boundaries. He keeps trying to use doors other than the one we’ve told him to use. We have a keypad on the garage door, and all of our guests use that instead of a house key. He keeps knocking on other doors instead of doing what we said. He hasn’t figured out how to use our shared bathroom as we’ve described multiple times. It’s easy. The bathroom opens to the living room on one side and to his room on the other. When not using it, keep the living room door open and turn off the light. He shouts at our cats. He gets too close to us physically (no understanding of a proximity barrier) and he talks to himself loudly, all the time. Not to mention various body function noises constantly coming from him.
All this to say, he creeps us out while not strongly violating our rules. We have had him here 2 nights, and he has 9 to go. He’s appeared in our dreams in creepy ways. I don’t have grounds to kick him out, but I’ve kept all communication on the Airbnb system, even though he doesn’t read what I’ve written to him. I’ve said it all repeatedly in person, too.
Now that we’ve experienced what a creepy guest is like, we’re thinking about cameras. Obviously, not in guest rooms. But should we think of them in the living room and great room (kitchen/dining)? Any suggestions?
