Response from David:

Thank you for your comments. We are always pleased to accommodate our guests with an earlier check in if at all possible and were able to do so in this case allowing check in 3 hours earlier than normal. To address the other points one by one:

1. Price. The price was clearly stated at enquiry stage and worked out at just 26 EURO per person per night including New Year's Eve night - less than the price of the most basic hostel !!!! The guest had the choice of either accepting or declining yet, despite this, she disputed the price upon arrival and continued to do so via an onslaught of text messages that day and following day (New Year's Eve) which were all answered by return. She even suggested doing a "cash deal" outside of Airbnb so she could pay less!

2. Electricity. It is clearly stated in the listing that electricity is paid via a card meter which is fair to everyone because the guest only pays for what is used. Upon arrival it was in credit and it was clearly explained about topping up the card - the nearest top up point being 15 metres across the road but can also be done online or via a phone call. It was also pointed out that the shop opposite would close early on New Year's Eve at 6pm (normally 9pm) and would reopen later than usual at 10am on New Year's Day. Additionally the shop had huge signs everywhere stating the opening times for New Year's Eve/Day. I fail to understand how, if true, 20 EURO could have been used up in two days - we have many one week bookings who do not use that much!!!!!

3. Communication. After check in we were in touch via text messages back and forth during their entire stay, my last reply being at 4pm on New Year's Eve. ALL were regarding the price they had paid! Every text they sent was answered in full so not sure where the "lack of communication" mentioned came from! Our last contact from them was a missed call at 9.50am on New Year's Day (their departure day) asking when the shop would open because they wanted to top up the electricity (check out is at 10am - the time the shop opened - which they would have known anyway!!!)

4. Coffee shops - there are 4 coffee shops in Callan, none of which would be open on New Year's Day!

5. Towels - again it is clearly stated that these are not provided (to keep the price competitive for our guests). However, if specifically requested prior to arrival, we will (and have in the past) provide them if it is not possible for guests to bring their (website hidden) - TV works! And nothing was mentioned to us during their stay.
