Hi all, don’t want to be repetitive, as there are many posts related to writing honest reviews (including the negative points)! But I haven’t found much relating to negative experiences with local guests.
My question is, when the guest is local (and you also live in the home), do you still leave a completely honest review. It feels like we, as the hosts, are quite vulnerable in this case since the guest is local, knows exactly where we live, and we know nothing about them.
Regarding the review: The guest was communicative, and followed *some of the house rules. But not all of them, which left us dealing with major cleaning and trying to remove stains and spills before the next guest checked in. We had to delay check-in for the following guest, and though they were understanding we gave them a partial refund for the inconvenience.
Now I’m trying to figure out how to be super diplomatic in the review, but also honest as I would like to warn other hosts.
Thanks for any advice.
