It’s been a rough winter so far. Out of the last 6 guests, 5 had issues, attitude or both.
Guest who stayed on my birthday in December puked in the bathroom. They told me about it, but I nearly puked myself cleaning it up.
Guest right before Christmas cancelled a week long stay. Not their fault and I got a 50% payout, but had to take a last minute guest to make up the difference.
Our Christmas guest booked for her boyfriend and didn’t tell me or give any instructions for the guy staying. When I asked if his girlfriend would be staying, he said no. The next night she came and stayed the night, when I asked them to add a second guest they said sure, then never did. They wrecked an entire sheet set.
The next couple got some sort of red makeup over the entire shower that took 2 hours to clean out of the grout, along with 2 weeks worth of garbage.
The guest after that checked out late without any notice, when I texted and asked him about it, I got no response and he left 15 minutes later, Then later that day, I got all kinds of threats that he was going to leave a bad review because the drain was slow. When I told him our house rules stated that any clogs or other damage had to be reported, he changed his tune and was worried I’d charge him for checking out late. I didn’t charge him, but it ended up being days of text drama.
The guy who is staying here now texted me a super long text telling me how annoyed he is that I am wasting electricity because of poor insulation (we mention poor insulation on our listing) and how he is terrified bugs will get in because of a 1" gap in the window insulation foam. I asked him if he was warm enough and if he experienced bugs and he didn’t answer back. He’s still got 3 more nights left. Should be a great time.
I know these kinds of streaks are rare, but man am I feeling burnt out.
