Response from Lily:

Hi Amy, I am so surprised that you gave out such a bad

and unjustice review even you didn't stay at my house and didnot experience the life here.

1, First, I want to clasify that, the old house price is

as same as my new apartment you paid on line, you could

check by airbnb.The two houses I both listed on airbnb,

guests enjoyed staying here and also had some good


2. Mosquitos are very normal in summer, it can be killed

by mosquito lit. During the day, lit some medicine, and at night, will be free of mosquitos.

3.Becasue of busy job during those days, I didn't see it

cleary about your booking address, and thought it was my

old house instead of the new apartment as the two are

both listed on line. That was my mistake. However I also

sent you the detail route to my house before arrival

date, you didn't point the address and picture mistake, even though you are Chinese lady, can speak a very fluent

Chinese. So that I found my mistake until the day you


As soon as found out, you booked another place after arrival, I

wanted to take you to my another apartment, But I can

feel that you are very picky lady, so I introduced the

detail condition of my apartment before departure, and

told you that "if you want to stay at my apartment, I

will go with you together there, if you don't want to stay there, I will help you to find a hotel for your stay and will give you a full refund". At last you decided to stay at a hotel. Then I helped you to find a cheap hotel. The weather was so hot, I spent around 30 minutes to find a satisfied hotel for you. All what I did for nothing, only helped you kindly.

However how did you treat me after I found you a hotel?

You demanded me to stay at the hotel with you, and

allowed me not to leave away for going to my office. You

are so hard to communicate and your distrust is crazy. I

promised you I would go back to find you after going off

work. The money is still kept by airbnb, I don't know

what you were afraid of. Then I had to give you my

cellphone as a deposit, of course much more expensive

than what you paid on airbnb. I trusted you. Finally you let me leave away.

After going off work, I went to your hotel to bring you

whole refund money and took back my cellphone.I waited you at least 2 hours after several calls, finally you came back. At the same time, I brought you another hotel name card and told you could change into a better hotel nearby if you feel that cheap hotel is not good for sleep after one night stay. All these job I did is free and kind for you, You didn't say thanks. You travelled with a kid, it was hard travelling. I did my best to help you even though I didn't owe a penny. Everything done by heart.

You mentioned that the house is old and will collapse by

earthquake. You could check out in Suzhou city, more than

2500 years history. How many times are there earthquakes?

How damages it took? Suzhou city is free of heavey earthquake, drought, flood etc. If really someday the earthquake does happen, our house structure is old wooden struction, you won't die.

At last, I also give you some suggestions. I think your personality, had better not to stay at people's home, the hotel is better choice for you. Easygoing and trust is very important instead of your boss attitude. Airbnb was not a tool for earning money or buying service. It is platform for making friends and get mutural understanding of different culture and customs around the world.

Lily from Suzhou, China.
