Response from Robert "Bob":

Arthur's group were fine guests.
DRYER: The dryer exhaust pipe is cleaned annually but after 5 years it took 2 days to buy/install a new pipe. The controls on the dryer are complicated...I ask guests to ask me any questions they may have rather than complain later - that wasn't Arthur's choice.
SAFETY: The neighborhood is quite safe anytime day or night. NYC is amazing safe.
HOUSEKEEPING: My place is professionally cleaned between each group of guests, however my town-home is in the middle of a row of 7 connected town-homes & average 3 apartments each, all quite nice, but if 1 of the 21 have bugs then we all have them, so I also treat for bugs between guests.
Most of my guests are neat & clean but occasionally I get a less-clean group and then I battle bugs for a time. Generally only about once a month does anyone see one.

Response from Robert "Bob":

The dryer was down for two days while we were changing the exhaust vent, which was plugged-up. This needs to be done about every two years. All is fine now.

Response from Robert "Bob":

I rarely get negative reviews since I am very concerned about satisfying my guests.... so I am shocked by this one. I'm proud that 99% of my reviews are (email hidden)is one shows that you can't satisfy all of the people all of the time.
My place is professionally cleaned between each set of guests and there are no moth balls. I spend extra money buying only healthful food & drinks. The only foods not replaced between guests are condiments (mustard, ketchup, etc.).
The neighborhood is very safe and the neighbors are friendy. A beautiful, expensive and the most energy-efficient apartment building in Manhattan is being built at the end of the block and the street & sidewalk are partially blocked-off, so perhaps this is why it felt unsafe.
Most hosts charge a cancellation fee but I charge nothing since I want my guests to be totally satisfied, so cancelling their stay cost me money, but there are things more important than money!!
My listing has some 46 pictures and extensive description of the apartments' details, so I canot imagine that this guest didn't know there was no bathtub.
She claims it was small, however, at 1100 sq ft. plus a 500 sq. ft. roof deck, it is unusually large for a NYC apartment. It is an expensively restored historic townhouse and most most people enjoy its charm... narrow staircase and all.
I will continue hosting awesome guests, knowing that one bad fruit in the basket is not uncommon.
