Last day to review - did post it yesterday because I thought I would not be next to my pc today, but so far no review from the guests so I could still edit it.
What’s your input … the profile of the guest is basic with no reviews etc.
Unfortunately I cannot recommend xxx and yyy to any future hosts.
Being two young backpackers and a city wide Arts Festival going on, the
location of the Treehouse was just a bit too far from downtown and they
decided to leave early.
What followed might just be the classic example of guest’s remorse when a
listing has a strict cancellation policy.
In their first communication after check-in they wrote:
"… we’ve arrived at the treehouse ! It’s absolutely gorgeous …
… there’s been a family emergency, … would you be willing to work
with us on refund for at least 3 days?"
They left late the same day without any further information, explanation
or good-bye to their hosts.
On the next day I received this message from xxx:
“I’m extremely allergic to bees … the second we walked in I had killed
two bees and 3 wolf spiders. The condition of the home wasn’t up to our
standards … and see what we need to do from here in order to get some
sort of compensation back.”
And somewhat later another message from xxx: “my father is a host
himself. I would not lie about the bees, spiders, spider webs, dust and
dead bugs that were found in the tree house itself. It looked like it
hadn’t been cleaned in months, also there was spiders crawling out of
More drama was yet to come with the next message, but do we really need
more? Best, just decline.
Unbeknownst to the guest I am double-listing this very same Treehouse with www.airbnb.com/rooms/2315701 … the last 31 reviews gave 5 Stars on Overall and Cleanliness …
