I am so stunned by your bizarre account of your stay here I really, I still can’t believe it. First, you messaged me quite to the contrary, saying: (Hi Roberta, I checked out this morning at 5am, thank you everything was great :) --Mohammed
Now, out of the blue, without a word or honest comment to me, you insult and degrade me in print as though you’d been forced to stay in a concentration camp. Well, lets go.
Your booking was very last-minute and the free parking was already spoken for. You did not inquire about nor confirm availability of parking when you booked. Most of my guests use Uber/Lyft and when someone is arriving with a vehicle, they always inquire and confirm availability of parking. Since you did not, I alerted you to the need for a $3/day overnight parking pass immediately upon your arrival. As a task I often perform for guests upon request, I know it takes less than 7 minutes, round trip, to drive to the kiosk, purchase a permit and return…. since the kiosk to purchase said pass is right down the block, not miles away. And I ran back to hide in the house? Uh, I went inside instead of standing on the curb awaiting your return. Not sure how that is hiding, but to describe *me as shady is more than insulting, especially from a man who wouldn't take off his sunglasses through our entire, first conversation.
Re: The Heat
I said to you, repeatedly, upon your arrival to please let me know if you had any problems, questions or anything with which I might assist. Call, text or just holler, I said, as I say to all my guests. I also mentioned I try to 'ride the heater' since one of my guests gets too hot, very easily, and we were having record cold temperatures, overnight. Perhaps you didn't hear that, since you don't seem to listen much.
If you were too cold you should have said so. My heater can make my home feel like the surface of the sun, it gets so hot, so I enlist my guests to help me gauge their comfort level. Your suggestion that I lied about having a heater and / or refused to turn it on is just slander.
My listing says “Pet Friendly,” with pets on the premises. There are pictures of my cats and some of my pet guests. You brought birds. If you have a problem with the presence of animals, you clearly booked the wrong place. However, your suggestion that my home is covered with animal hair is a flat-out lie. My single rabbit never leaves my room, let alone goes hopping through the house and my cats are old ladies who stay all day and night on my bed.
Your comforter, blankets, sheets and pillowcases, extra blankets and ELECTRIC BLANKET, PROVIDED IN CASE YOU WERE COLD, were all freshly laundered, as they are for every guest. And I keep my house neat as a pin. Swept and dusted every day. Never a dish in the sink or towel in the laundry. So your “covered in animal fur” description is fiction. And if a spider finds its way into your room during your days, here, well, they live in the world, too. Take it up with nature.
My Wifi works just fine. Perhaps your equipment of your phone plan sucks. And your complaint that the ATT password is too long? Well, that is just sad.
Re: Poor you.
I am not Kreskin. I don’t read minds. I offer my assistance, repeatedly, to guests for anything they need, any question, problem or issue they may have. If you don’t have the guts to speak up, that is on you. Perhaps if you had communicated to me in any way about all your apparent issues, I could have resolved them for you. Instead, you chose to say nothing, then to say nice things to my face and then to rag on me in print. How very bizarre.
Re: All the positive reviews from my 107 friends
I am happy to consider so many of my Airbnb guests to now be friends. Especially since I had never met any of them before.
