Response from Jai:

you told me the benches were dusty. that's all you said? if there were any problems, you had been texting me over the weekend.

there is a caretaker available. he is not a cleaner, but he is on hand to help with issues.
hell, if needed he can even meet you and lead you up if you think you'll get lost.
the house agreement is that you clean up after yourself.
if there was an issue with bugs, you needed to tell me immediately.
how could you not even mention it in a text?

Response from Jai:

this is a blatant over exaggeration.
one week before every rental the caretaker is on the property, he checks the last tenants have cleaned. if not he straightens up.

the side area of the house is clearly marked as private storage. you are not to be rummaging through those things.

there are no broken appliances. none have previously been reported.
if anything is broken, you have not advised me about it. I would assume based on that it was you that had broken them.

the "grime' you saw on everything IS soot, from using the kerosene heater.
it accumulates very quickly on all the surfaces. other tenants make an effort to wipe this off after they use the property, and this is checked by the caretaker.
while the "cleaning fee" is listed as such, it technically does not cover cleaning as you are supposed to manage that yourself.
a feat you thought was beneath yourself, leaving tasks to the caretaker.
the fee is for the caretaker to drive up to the property. a round trip of 45 km.
it covers less than half of his usual time onsite straightening up and preparing for the next rental.
i am aware of the condensation. It a result of being at 1600mtr elevation and the cold air.
the closer it is to snow season the more pronounced this can be. clearly you were unprepared for this kind of cold environment, a simple towel can fix this in seconds.

Again, you had a chance to chat with me at any point and resolve these issues, or even let me know you had them.
since you were so eager to contact me for assistance, i would have assumed any issues you had with anything would have been raised then. or even after then when we tried to make sure everything with your "medical emergency" was resolved.. instead you said nothing to me about any of this, and slyly crafted your review.
