I had recent guests who stayed for 7 days
Woman mid50’s / Man mid60’s who left the place messier than I had expected.
They didn’t seem know how to load the dishwasher.
Despite my COVID19 request that no dishes be hand washed (but to load them in the DW) there was a pile of almost all the dishes on the kitchen counter possibly that they had been hand washed and were left out to dry, but not indicative if they actually were.
Picante sauce stains on exterior furniture and drips on living room sofa. It looked like instead of using a napkin, someone just wiped their hands on the outdoor furniture (white) cushion.
Pistachio nut shells on the floor throughout the place.
Luggage marks on the walls
Things just not put back in places where they came from
It wasn’t terrible, but more so than a little extra cleaning, it left the impression of being disrespectful of someone else’s home.
They were friendly, VERY chatty, somewhat demanding (not obtrusive, just more than most), followed house rules, good communication, and left a very nice review.
I left them a review of 4 stars. And when questioned by Airbnb review system - I said I would not want to host them again.
This couple has already told me that they’d Iike to come back in January. Does that comment I gave privately to AirBNB do anything or will I just have to reject their 2021 inquiry.
