I didn’t feel welcome by the host as the host instantly increase the price per night when I expressed my interest on her house. Initial price was $232 and she charged me $250 per night. Since I liked the house from the pictures I didn’t mind paying the extra and nor raised any co…
I regret that Yousuf did not feel welcome in my home. The reason there was a nominal price change was due to the fact that the weekend price is set a tad higher. I do prefer my guests to take out insurance against damage this way they are covered if there are any mishaps. I definitely did not request additional money for cleaning. I did however, point out the mess on the ground floor and indicated I would do my best to clean everything (primarily carpet stains) and let them know if there were any problems. I politely asked if anyone in the group smoked. Yousuf's group placed a fruit basket on top of a high furniture cabinet - when we climbed up to take it down we found a pack of cigarettes - we were just (Website hidden by Airbnb) to how it got there.....and this is not usually an area we climb up to view. Yousuf did use disposable cups and in fact they were left all over the house at departure - some still with liquid therein. The house is huge - a total of almost 4,000 square feet of living space and set on almost two acres. And, if one looks at the other reviews for the property seems all our other guests agreed. Shall speak to the neighbors and see if they had guests on motor bikes - most of our reviews state the house is quiet and serene - but, again.....Yousuf may just have visited when our neighbors were noisy. Not sure how Yousuf got the idea they were not happy with us having visitors - seems odd - especially if they were the ones being noisy...... As far as wifi and cell phone service are concerned - this would be an issue with Yousuf's carrier. The house does have wifi but I always explain that the wifi can be spotty due to the country location. I tell all guests, as I did Yousuf that if wifi is important during their stay it is a good idea to take a hotspot. When I mentioned this to Yousuf he said he would not be using wifi during his stay. As far as being on his own in an emergency - there is a house phone and in the instructions I let guests know they may freely use the house phone for local and national calls for that matter - just not international calls. As far as being unreachable - that is totally inaccurate - I am available at all times during a guest's stay - via phone, text or email. Yousuf made no attempts to contact me. In my instructions, I asked that he let me know when he arrived and would let me know if everything was okay and to his satisfaction. I didn't hear from him and sent a text to which I received no response. As he was trying for a quiet weekend away I did not continue to bother him. I left the house in pristine condition - and most of our guests comment on how clean everything is. This is a luxury house and it is very, very comfortable. The kitchen was spotless. As far as bugs are concerned - if you leave the door open the bugs will get in - and during Yousuf's stay my security alarm constantly signaled doors left open for up to ten minutes at a time. This is a security feature in case someone has left the door open inadvertently. Talking about the alarm system - all guests are asked to lock doors when vacating the property and set security alarm. Yousuf left a door open when he vacated and he did not set the alarm. Fortunately, I did my house check within a short time after his departure. And, in total dismay as to the condition of the ground floor I felt it only fair to let Yousuf know right away by telephone. At no time did I ask him for extra money for cleaning. It wasn't until all the damage had been surveyed (and I was able to resolve many of the issues myself) did I put a claim on the deposit for the damaged and missing items from his stay and which Yousuf declined to pay. It did not seem as if Yousuf tried using the paddle boat but of course it would need to be put in the water - and don't believe that happened. There are paddles for the canoe. If he couldn't find them he should have called me to ask where they were located. There are two phones on the ground floor for a guest to use - one in the kitchen and one in the living room. In addition, should the wifi be spotty there is an ethernet cable in the kitchen to hook up a laptop. As far as difficulty entering the house - I am not sure why that would be. Have had many phone calls and email exchanges with Yousuf since his stay and not once did he mention any difficulty entering the house nor did he mention those issues left on his property review.
The house was lovely, sweet, beautiful and very comfortable. I will most definitely be reaching out to Caroline again for another stay! It was a wooded oasis for our weekend upstate.
