The smell of massage oil was too intense on the bed and in the room. It was not very easy to sleep there.

I would rate this as a very poor experience. Terrible actually. I was uncomfortable from the moment I walked in. From Vanessa showing me the room where she runs her tantric massage business, to the pile of condoms in the drawers in the room, the dirty bed linen and the towels that smelt like massage oil, it really was horrible. Vanessa made no attempt at making me feel comfortable and even made sure that I wouldn't be there during the day because her tantric massage clients would be there. I felt very unsafe and uncomfortable there, to the point where I cancelled my stay and found another place which was fantastic. I would not recommend this stay to anybody.

Response from Vanessa:
I would like to make abundantly clear that I do not run my tantra massage within the AirBnB room - it's done separately in a separate room. The condoms are in the drawer because as a conscious/sacred sexuality practitioner I do not have any shame or judgement around people having sexual lives (tho' I'm a big advocate of safe sex - hence condoms). I'm very clear in my listing that I am a private person and that this listing is best for those who also require privacy themselves. (It's also made clear in the reviews.) I'm also very clear in my profile (click on my 'face' to read it) since March this year that I do tantra massage from my home thus next time I would advise that you read the profile of the host to ensure you're comfortable. All this is more of a reflection on your own insecurities, fears, and shame than myself - this is a trigger for you - the treasure is in the exploration (something I've learned and I guide my clients - men or women - to explore). Thank you for your feedback Amanda, I'm glad you were able to find somewhere more suitable.

Detail written description. Location is great to all theme parks and city area. Approx 10-15mins drive to most of the popular spot. The host is quiet and prefer to communicate via SMS or Airbnb chat. Toilet looks clean but when you open the drawer, it's full of dirt. Linen is not very clean. I can easily spot hairs and human dander on the bed. P.S there is no hair dryer provided.

Pet Parent to #GarryGaz (dog) and Marnie (cat)

For work, I have two businesses: "Vanessa (Pet Guardian)" and "Lady Vee : Priestess of The Bewitchful Body". My "Lady Vee" covers coaching around body, love and sexuality which sometimes involves tantra massage which I do in my home (only one session per day / max 3 per week) during the daytime only.

I believe a house is not a home without a pet :) hence I have two!! :D

I'm a 38yo (never-smoker) female who is a lifelong Gold Coast local with quite the interesting life !

Whilst I am more reserved, my pooch Garry will make up for it in his friendly, welcoming nature. Basically consider him your host :) with Marnie as his side-kick (even tho' she's Queen of my home).

My goal on AirBnB is to meet a lot of like-minded (pet loving) people in their travels.
