Michaela's apartment was great - it's in an awesome spot, really easy to get downtown, with lots of great coffee shops and restaurants nearby. We had problems with the shower and some of the plumbing, and Michaela had us fix it ourselves though it wasn't our fault - beware, if an…
Response from Michaela:
Hey Zac, I am glad you enjoyed the apartment and very thankful you managed to fix the shower issue. Let me add an explanation for future guests what had happened here. The "problem with the shower and some of the plumbing" means the shower outlet which has two layers (one on the surface and the other 5cm lower) got filled with hair so water couldn't flow away. I should have checked it before their check-in which I regularly do. The reason I forgot was Zac and his friend arrived about 3 hours prior to a regular check-in time and I was more concentrated about handling the key/suitcases situation. Zac demanded coming earlier, while guests who were leaving that morning, asked for staying until a regular check-out time. As a host, you don't want to kick out your guests earlier than guaranteed. On the other hand you understand new guests want to enjoy the city at it's maximum. Since I was trying to make everybody happy I was "fixing this problem" rather than checking out the shower drain. You are right, my bad. Zac, you texted me on Saturday 3pm when I was out of town and complained about water not flowing away. I answered your message immediately to navigate how to pull out the top shower grid. I expected you don't feel like waiting for a solution for 3 hours especially when wishing to shower, now :) If experienced, the fixing takes about 10 seconds. If not experienced, it takes 1 minute + 10 seconds getting a tool to pull up the grid. I was considering two possible solutions: explaining in 5 words to 2 adult men how to do it OR cancel my weekend trip and come back Prague to clean the drain. I am sorry for the choice I made, I didn't realize it would be such an issue for you. Saying "Michaela isn't very helpful when anything goes wrong" is unfair and little bit too much in this case. Besides, in 5 yrs of hosting ppl I never let anything just let go. I always take care of serious issues immediately (read my reviews:). If you are expecting a full service at any moment of your stay, you should rather stay in a hotel next time. This is someone's home, with his/her personal things to do. No reception desk to complain or a plumber in a corner waiting for a new task.. I would understand a worse rating for cleanliness but turning this moment into a real issue? That's rather funny and sad at the same time. Airbnb is about hospitality, kind approach, open-mind, local insights, personal recommendations and friendly relationship. If you feel like being taken special care of 24/7, this way of accommodation may not be the best for you. PS: in your review, I am kind of missing the information about your special Saturday morning request. You asked me for checking you in 3 hours earlier on Saturday and despite the fact that there were still other guests in the room and I had to get there really early to let you in, I did it and tried to make your stay easy and more comfy. If leaving a review like this is the way you say "thanks, we appreciate it", then I can only let other hosts to be aware.
I am a traveler. When I am not here, I am somewhere on the trip :) I love to listen to you so we can share our experience and learn and prevent doing the same wrong steps as the other had done :)
