Great house and location, but beware, owner unprofessional and rude.
Marcel had a large house perfectly suitable for our NYE reunion. Our group was excited to arrive, and he provided helpful directions to get to his house (however these were the only instructions he communicated in a comprehensible manner…)
When we arrived there were towels kindly left on each bed.
For three days we enjoyed many of the house’s fun amenities, but were quickly offended by Marcel’s uncouth and incredibly rude messages shortly after our departure.
We have been using AirBNB for three years now, and have always been supplied (whether in email or a binder upon arrival) with direct house rules/suggestions/directions/instructions of which we courteously follow. Marcel did not effectively provide instructions and then harassed us with texts.
For example, he told us (and apologized) that there would be no fire wood and asked we bring our own. We then brought plenty of firewood with the understanding that there would be none. We burned through ours within two days and used some of a large pile we unexpectedly found in the house and some twigs. After our departure, we received a strings of insulting texts, repetitively saying that we had rudely used his firewood. He offered no productive mention of a financial resolution, just ranted.
Another example: We were offered no instructions regarding what to do with trash. We had 20 people stay, and bagged all of our trash, swept, vacuumed, and mopped the floors before departure, then brought all the bags into one location before leaving.
What he texted after departure: “Some idiot in your group moved the garbage bin from the back of the garage to the front lawn..." followed by repetitive and harassing texts regarding the amount of trash. Again, the point of these texts was not to reach out for compensation for the 'excessive' trash, but to just rant.
Ultimately, Marcel did not offer appropriate direction for our stay. His subsequent problems/issues following our departure should have been addressed in a more professional manner, rather than harassment. We had no problem covering the costs (i.e. of extra trash pickup and purchase of firewood), but it is completely inappropriate to harass us via texts and call us names.
I specifically said to you by text, I just had an operation and am having a follow up one in 2 weeks, I can not chop any more firewood. I said if you plan on using the fireplace to buy wood at the super market. your party used every single piece of firewood I had cut for the winter prior to my operation.
your party also left 18 bags of garbage and recyclables on our front lawn as well as moving our garbage bin there. I didn't think I had to tell you to not move the garbage bins from outside the garage to the front lawn. nor would I think anyone would ever leave garbage whether one bag or 20 on our lawn. I expect people to put in the garbage bin, next to the garage, where the garbage truck can easily pick it up. I was amazed someone would move the giant bin and decide the place to stack 18 bags of garbage is the front lawn. in renting my house out over 100 times in 14 years I have never ever had anyone do this
Yes I was upset at you lack of thinking and use of the firewood I asked you not to use. so I texted you my feelings, I wouldn't call this harassment. but luckily you enjoyed the house.
Incredible and accommodating hosts. And the house is incredible--even better in person.
Very accommodating hosts. Amazing house. Great treatment. Ideal in almost every way.
