I recently had a nightmare guest which I allowed as a last minute booking. When I read her reviews, they were all very good.
Upon arrival, she had a whole list of demands for my family and I.
Refrain from using any perfumes or deodorizing sprays while I’m here. I’m sensitive to scents.
I’m not a cat person so make sure the cat doesn’t go near me.
There are other guests here? Oh I didn’t know, that presents a whole list of other issues. (The listing states there are two airbnb rooms in the house).
I need space in the fridge as I bring my own food and have to prepare it here.
I need to know everyone’s shower schedules and when do the other guests come and go. (The other guests have their own bathroom but she still wanted to know).
Lastly…What got her kicked out the very night she arrived is that she told my son that he needed to get off the xbox early because she might hear the t.v from her room. Her room is upstairs and very far from the living room.
I don’t know what she did to my cat but my cat was so terrified she was clinging on to the couch with her hair standing up and would not more.
There is no way these other hosts had a great experience. I have only had 2 4 star reviews ever…Almost a perfect star rating (got two 4 stars on location) and absolutely no negative reviews. I have a child at home so it really helps when I see honest reviews. We as hosts do this because we enjoy hosting and we have to have a certain type of thick skin but it is not right to leave ravishing reviews on people who don’t deserve them.
