I am an “in home” host. I rent one private room/bath that is at the opposite end of the hall from my personal bedroom. Guest slept with his door open/ajar. Would you mention this in your review of him?
Maybe not a big deal, but it was very frustrating as he would turn in way earlier than me, so there is noise and light coming in his room as I’m moving around. I felt like like a guest in my own home, having to creep around in the dark. The wood floors and steps creak (which I mention during “the tour”, and recommend the “white noise machine”, which he didn’t use.) I felt like my freedom was restricted, and also it was just weird that I had to avert my eyes, lest I see into his room as he sleeps.
I’m very quiet once guest(s) turn in for the night, but this was impossible to pull off with an open door and I’m pretty sure I woke him at least once.
I’m fearing a bad review b/c he left abruptly in the morning, last day of his stay, didn’t leave a note, didn’t make coffee, or take the free “Kind” bars that I left for him. Everyone takes those.
Otherwise he was an all-around great guest and I enjoyed talking with him, he was pretty social…Soooo what would you all do?
***I will say the noise was a bit more than usual on his last night b/c I had a client (other job) that was traveling internationally and kept texting with changes to his project. I was having to keep getting up, and going downstairs to my office as he had a tight deadline.
