Response from Blaine:

I hired a professional cleaning service to come and clean the entire house before Marilyn's stay, as I always do. She did not let me know that there was an issue with the cleanliness until after they had supposedly "cleaned for an hour"...leaving no evidence of any issue. I have a hard time believing it was as bad as she described but I did give her the benefit of the doubt.

To make it up to her, I offered to provide a full brunch service for her group, complete with fresh fruit, cheeses, preserves, bread, yogurt, coffee, mimosas, breakfast tacos, salsa, queso, etc. Marilyn took me up on this offer, then bailed as I was heading over to deliver it. To be clear, she asked me to get up early, buy all the supplies and then left as I was on my way over to the house, leaving me with almost $100 of breakfast items.

In regards to the fridge space, I asked Marilyn prior to check-in if she would need any special (email hidden)e did not mention needing extra fridge space.

Needless to say, I would not welcome this group back.

Response from Blaine:

I am entirely comfortable renting out my home for SXSW and have done so many times. Never has there been an issue. All other guests have been respectful of house rules and I've never had to make a claim on a security deposit.

Moreover, the price paid for the rental is irrelevant. As most people know, lodging is expensive in Austin during SXSW. Paying that going rate does not grant guests the ability to break house rules. If damages occur...such as a strong smell of smoke throughout the house...the costs to remedy those damages will rightly come out of the security deposit. Such was the case here...the claim was justified as confirmed by the Airbnb claims investigator team.
