Response from Neva:

I am so grateful that 99.99% of our guests are gracious, courteous, and considerate and lovely people in general. Nathan, as you fell into the .01% we are very sad to have had such a poor experience with you. I believe if you had just taken a moment to read the information we sent you and that AirBnB sent you, your experience would be a 5 star experience. We acknowledge and help you in the housebook that parking can be tight after 6 PM in the main lot but direct you in these cases to the overflow private parking lot at Bubba Gumps which had over 50 spots available and you chose not to park there, which is your choice but I don't know why you did not?
In the information sent to you we explain it is a HELCO and AOAO rule to turn off AC when the condo is vacant. We also told you it only takes 15 minutes to cool the unit down once you turn on the AC and
Fans. Considering the island has 3 hurricanes right now and heat and humidity are at an all time high, yes, you need both to help cool the condo down to 68-72 degrees and you chose not to do that. Also, you are not soeaking the truth, when I called you , you told me the room had cooled down, that was 30 minutes after you checked in.
Also clearly written in my write up, we describe the shower and especially emphasize that it is not dirty, that it is worn out fiberglass. So it is not mold as you describe but rather worn out fiberglass. Ellen my property manager is emphatic with the bleach, trust me! We have 91 out of 103 5 stars for cleanliness.
Finally there are 3 messages posted in lovely Hawaiian frames 1) reminding you to take the trash out daily to avoid cuckarachas 2) to not cut on the countertops as we spent $$$ replacing them and a guest proceeded to cut on them and ruin them immediately after we remodeled and 3) a welcome to our home, enjoy your stay in our home and be considerate of its contents. I do not believe they are demanding or offensive and they have helped keep my home in order so guests get to appreciate Hawaii for under $100 a night....a rarity these days.
From 3 months ago at booking I also explained I was out of town on a personal matter and asked that if you needed anything that you contact my property manager and I gave you her direct mobile number. But instead you called me at 3:30 AM my time and woke up the entire home just to tell me you had landed...again, I kindly had given you all instructions on not to do that. Calling me at my time of 3:30 AM was not necessary nor considerate and very rude and caused some very personal matters to transpire. You later called me a 4 letter nasty word at 5 AM in a text message after you checked in instead of calling my property manager about how go use the AC. I could never have imagined I needed to tell someone how to turn on an AC and fan? I kindly and graciously helped you when most hosts would have kicked you out on the street and canceled you as a guest after your insulting kanguage. AirBnB is about relationships and working together not calling a host a bad name, you should have better manners and be a kinder gentler person. Your words and actions were childish and inconsiderate and honestky I do not believe you make a good AirBnB person and I understand why you have had trouble before.

We wish you safe travels through the storms and feel a bit of aloha spirit may do your soul some good. Best to you on your search for both happiness and a more loving spirit. Aloha.

Response from Neva:

Heather, as you won the award for my first ever rude guest out if 4 years of AirBnB, I will be conservative with my response. My team who is onsite did everything to make your stay comfortable from check in to check out despite your rudeness and Ellen answered your calls immediately, even the one telling her you missed your flight from LA. You must not have been raised well as your language was rude and inappropriate after everyone treated you with respect on your late arrival. Ellen, the Islander Staff, and myself treat people with respect as both host and a guest and did so with you despite your intolerable behavior and language. AirBnB gave you the opportunity to move immediately if you were uncomfortable or unhappy as we want happy kind guests but you refused and emphatically wanted to stay. I did not write a review for you as it is best to sometimes say nothing at all.
