Most days I enjoy hosting…today I’m tired & grouchy and working hard to not tell the guest, if she isn’t happy just GET OUT!!!
Entire condo listing for 3 Bedroom 2.5 bath condo. Beds listed as queen, double/full, twin. Pictures include Master BR, 2nd Bedroom, 3rd BR loft/office with twin daybed & double aerobed available. Unit Description includes details 2X that the 3rd bedroom is a office/loft with a desk, closet & daybed. 3 pictures have caption “Office/loft/twin daybed”. In our local real estate listings it is considered a 3 bedroom unit because of the closet.
Guest sends me a message that the openness of the sleeping arrangements is awkward because this was a business trip. My listing did not disclose it was a loft. Plus the full bed is too small so they are using the aerobed. Two guests do not have sleeping privacy.
I message her back “I am sorry to hear the loft sleeping arrangement is awkward…” I explain it was disclosed in the unit description 2x and in the picture captions. Plus that the bed sizes were correctly listed on Airbnb.
She keeps messaging me. I’ve stopped responding. She pestered me before the rental to give her details about what I considered a fully equipped kitchen (she read that!!).
I almost didn’t accept the rental; now I wish I had listened to that quiet voice that said, “she’s trouble”.
PLUS TODAY I get my 3rd request to cancel existing rentals for a huge 3 month rental that will pay me 2X my usual rate. However they need the unit’s exact address & my mailing address before they can write me a check. They are seeking housing for a family that lost everything in a fire. SCAM SCAM SCAM. We are fairly small town/city southeastern USA. A family losing everything would be in the local news. It is not. These people are wasting my time.
Venting. I hope Y’all having a better day.
By the way I removed the SOS in the title because it means “Same old S…” I realized it could be interpreted as a cry for help.
