Response from Valerie:

I assumed Alexis would write a horrible review with some embellishments because this couple living with me was one of the hardest bookings Ive had. She and her girlfriend did move in w their dog and it was pretty good at first, although after I made sure they had extra spaces to store their kitchen things before their big move to california I started having issues with them being courteous to others in the space including myself. First they took things off my personal hooks in the bathroom and moved them so they could have both of their washcloths on hooks. At first i just moved it back but they kept moving it so I spoke to them and let them know they could get $1 hooks and put them up in the shower area and they were mine not really thinking anything but its very indicative of what lack of respect or courteousness I went through with them. There was one airbnb guest living w me who was in early 20s who did come home and smoke weed in his room and open a window and there is a stoop at the taaffe lofts right under the bedroom alexis and siara rented where people sit and smoke and the trail and smoke does come into the windows slightly in my apartment if you leave the window open. with this being said it was dealt with with that guest and he was extremely respectful even when he took an ice cream bar one time out of the freezer to replace it the next day (it had been in there for 2 mos and he thought someone left it) We even told the couple he wasn't sure if it was theres and he would replace it which he did. They kept insisting I was smoking in the apartment against the non-smoking policy which is just not true. I am buddhist and do burn peruvian wood stick and sage quit frequently while i meditate daily and don't mind not burning it if it bothers people. There are vents in the apartment they are baseboards that go along the bottom of the windows and they travel to both apartments on both sides of me. But this is not a situation where there is tons of smoke in the apartment. Like I said they are over embellishing and seems very vindictive after I did let them as a couple stay in my apartment w a dog! the guest with a dog was not dangerous. There was another airbnb guest here at the time who is very petite and she was not afraid of the dog. Because of Alexis and Siara complaints to airbnb the guest w the dog moved out and i lost a lot of $ for the booking. No Im not concerned with money over peoples safety but they did have a dog themselves and it seemed extremely out of hand and like i said vindictive when I provided them beautiful room. I actually came in the last week and half and slept in my living room because of their outlandish complaints that the dog was dangerous (not that I wanted to do this!!) to make sure i was there to see how to combat any issues. Her girlfriend Siara was always in the apartment (something they never said she would be doing) which is where most of the tension came from because Alexis was never there to see or witness most of what was going on. Her girlfriend worked a few hours for a couple of days may 2 -3 most of the summer because she is a music artist. Yes I do have a hotel lock on the door for when I wanted privacy but that only happened once that I fell asleep by accident and it wasn't because i was smoking weed. HA my neighbor has footage of her girlfriend trying to break into my house where they were trying to bust the door down because of the lock after banging for 3 mins they did this which would of damaged my front door to the apartment as if someone broke in even if they were renting there this was very uncalled for. They refused to contribute to any cleaning in the apartment even though they lived there for 3 mos and didnt even broom or mop their own room while in there as i cleaned it myself when it clearly stated its a share and people have to contribute to cleaning supplies or common area when they live here for longer than a week or for long stays. They actually would fill the tub up w water and ajax on 2 occasions so that other airbnb guest who woke up for work could not use it unless they cleaned out the tub and it caused problems that they would leave nasty notes around for the other guests instead of just speaking to them in an amicable way. now I can see if this apartment was dirty but it wasn't. I found they moved into a share and didnt really want to share with (website hidden) the other airbnb guest who was asked to leave that is not their concern and they were not involved in what we agreed. They wanted to stay longer than their stay ended and could not uphold their end of the agreement so I did not allow them to because I answer to a management co procedure in this apartment not just to myself. As I said even bringing that up when they don't have knowledge of it is vindictive to write it here as a review. It is my home and I do much work in the world to help and this just puts a strain on my airbnb relationship. No one is perfect and people have different lifestyles and habits and it takes communication and understanding sometimes. I would say that the majority of the problems with this guest was her girlfriend not always owning up to her very picky lifestyle and inability to get along with the other guest or even communicate with them and I always had to mediate.
