Hmm. Interesting that the 4 interactions I had with your guests in my home that no one spoke of "horrible living conditions", which is of course, ridiculous. And you never even met me as you were not on property either. As far as the heat...the temperature was 75 degrees outside, we do not turn on heat when the temperatures are that warm in October in Georgia. The heat is automatic and goes on at 67, which is quite comfortable. If the temperature in the house was not lower than that, it doesn't kick on. I spoke with several of your guests and asked if they were comfortable, even brought more blankets from my own residence and was told everything was fine and not to worry...they were from Chicago, this was not cold. Did you call me? I was on property all weekend. I called you several times as well as emailed...you never responded. The reason I met your guests was because unfortunately one of them started a fire in the fireplace with the vents closed and set off the fire alarms and I had to enter my house to find it filled with smoke and I saw that there were many MANY more people than the 8 you reserved for. You reserved for 8, your daughter said 13 day before check in and you said 10. There were 15 or more in the living room watching me put out the fire. I explained no open flames of any kind are allowed. The guests had not read the rule sheet posted in the house nor on our Airbnb listing, which makes sense, they were not the registered guests. As written in house (Website hidden by Airbnb) fireworks, no fires, no bonfires, no candles etc. I was very courteous with your guests, again, you were not even at the property? And if you were and so disappointed why didn't you contact me? I was just upstairs. I turned off the fire alarm, open the vents, put out the fire and was thankful I was home to catch this disaster before anything was destroyed, which is every host's nightmare. I'm sorry if you feel I was "rude" for not allowing your daughter to have an event on property after check out for 40 people which I explained to her before your check in. I was happy to extend your reservation on Sunday to accommodate the "brunch" but she declined. She asked for a "late check out" and when I inquired why...she told me of her brunch plans and when she said it would be 40 people, I had to tell her that we need to book her for another day for an event that size. We spoke about this on the phone when you called me the day before check in as well. You said you were glad that brunch was canceled and I assumed that was a done deal. But apparently you had the brunch anyway, just the day before. We are not able to allow large groups to host events and parties without a reservation on property due to insurance regulations. I never met your daughter, nor you as you didn't stay on property and third party reservations are not allowed per Airbnb, and you didn't respond to my emails or calls over the weekend. I'm not sure what is stereotypical about me as a host, but if that means we have rules and abide by them to protect our home and business, then I guess I'm stereotypical. Again, having never met me I am at a loss. It hardly seems fair that you leave my 5star property a terrible review because you broke the rules of the reservation and left my property in very unfavorable condition. I have since learned that I should have contacted Airbnb on the phone the MINUTE I saw more people and unregistered guests and had you removed. Now I know. And other hosts should be warned as well.
