This was an extremely disappointing booking for us. Carmen was not up front about her intent of her booking, in the Airbnb message thread. It is clearly stated in capital letters that we do NOT allow parties and she booked with the intent of a bachelorette/ bridal party weekend. Her exact words in the thread were "we plan to maybe do some wine tasting tours, shopping, but most importantly relaxing." They did relax. We did not relax! We have a working ranchette with dogs, cats, chickens, horses and lots of wildlife! Our pets are part of our life. Funny, over 250 other reviews understand this but not yours. This is all clearly stated in our listing as well, that the guest joins us, is clearly stated. We live in the country, not city, surrounded by over 7000 acres of nature, not concrete! Yes, we will have yellow jackets ( that area was marked off and clearly explained to them), they won't eat you, by the way, Carmen! We have mountain lions, bears, bobcats, coyotes, eagles, hawks, owls, snakes, honey bees, egrets, the list goes (Website hidden by Airbnb) ONE has ever been hurt or in danger of being hurt by anyone of these creatures, read the over 250 reviews! By the way, I did ask the girls upon returning near 10pm, to "please keep a bit more quiet." Actually, I was finally, able to ask them that after calling out to them 4-5 times, (without response from them), that's how loud they were not to be able to hear me. Finally, yes, to get their attention, I clapped my hands, like a school teacher to loud students, while calling out "girls..." Finally one responded and argued that quiet time was not until 11pm. That does not mean that, as an adult, you get to be obnoxiously loud until then. This is our home after all and, not a college dormitory! If you don't know anything about country living or don't want to experience that, please, do yourself a favor and stay in the city! The girls as well, were not the cleanest guests we've had either. Garbage was overflowing all the trash cans and we did have to do some repairs to some items. Fortunately, we were able to do that ourselves so we didn't need to charge their security deposit. The only reason we allowed Carmen and her friends to stay was for the sake of the bride but, it was a "grin and bare" experience and not at all enjoyable! Thank-you!
