Response from Samantha:

Unfortunately, I can't please everyone. As I had explained to Vinny, I was having extreme medical issues - they were not "supposed," (as if I had lied?) but I was actually in the doctor all day (which landed me in the hospital a week later) and this meant I couldn't clean the place beforehand. I told this to Vinny and his children and I also offered alternatives. For example, if he wanted to wait, I would go clean it and he could then check in. But he said it was fine and that it was no problem. He then texted me hours later and said he wouldn't be staying. Please keep in mind that because I couldn't get there between guests, I gave him my personal set of keys that I was going to pick up later on that evening. So after he texted me that he wouldn't be staying, I felt terrible because I assumed the place was a disaster, so I told him I would refund him. Well, he chucked the personal set of keys I gave him on my floor so I had to call my landlord to let me in (an entirely separate issue). When I arrived the place was not messy at all! It needed a little cleaning here and there from my previous tenants but nothing out of the ordinary. Not sure what "cot" he is talking about - I have a rather expensive futon that I rent out for other guests on a separate listing. While I was in the hospital, I only later found out that he sent me a barrage of text messages demanding his refund. I did not give him a refund in full because he never actually cancelled the reservation which meant my place could not be re-booked for the time he stayed there. So in reality, I never actually had to refund him since HE cancelled - but since it was MY fault that the place was not up to the cleanliness standards I always like to keep it at, I figured it was my duty to refund him. Then once I asked him if he could kindly take down the review, he was nowhere to be found and has still not answered my phone calls or text messages. It's unfortunate because I did my part and gave him his refund and ONCE AGAIN, the guest did not do his part to take down the negative review which you, my potential guest, are currently reading.
