I had my first houseguest today or should I say had. She indicated she was expecting 4-5 adults and one-year-old twins from out of town. Well, she came and through a conversation, indicated she was having 20 give or take people over for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner tom. Now, she has two Airbnbs so she is well aware of the “rules.” I was caught off guard and reluctantly said ok and went home to discuss it with my husband. I wasn’t totally on board because I felt she was disingenuous and misrepresented her intention. My husband was totally against it. I told her several hours later we would not allow it so she said she would leave and asked if we would give her a full refund.
I was going to refund it minus the cleaning fee but am feeling some kind of way. She tried to say 6 people we’re spending the night. I told her when she said she was having the dinner with her family, I assumed it would be just her family! What do I do? I’m out of a weekend and am not feeling giving her back any money.
She’s not stupid and didn’t put up a fight when I told her she couldn’t host a party/get together at my place.
