I'm aorry that Michelle was not pleased the sleeping accommodations did not include 4 actual beds, as opposed to two beds and sleeper sofas. At the time of her booking, the property was advertised exactly as "Gorgeous and spacious vintage New Orleans uptown building, with 2 fully furnished bedrooms, formal living and dining rooms, screened in back porch, a den with a two sleeper sofas, and 1.5 bathrooms."

As to the concerns about the general condition of the property, the property was rented as a vintage building at a substantial discount to comparable newly renovated spaces. The property is actually being taken offline from future reservations for an $800K makeover that will include elevation of the structure and a complete rehab of the location out from the studs. The renovations are anticipated to take almost 2 years and portions of the property may be available for future short term rentals upon completion of these major renovations.

Response from Jarrod:

I'm very sorry the property did not meet Kay's expectations. The property is a vintage house built over 100 years ago. It is described as such with unaltered and accurate photos as to its current condition, most of which were taken and posted by an official AirBNB photographer. All of the windows close. The property is scheduled for renovations and upgrades during 2014 to address the minor paint and plaster cracking issues throughout, but these do not impact the habitability or functionality of the space, which at around $250/night for over 2,400sq' of space that accommodates up to 8 people comfortably, in a spectacular location, remains one of the best values on AirBNB for the area. The property is advertised as a 1.5 bath, so the tub described as unusable was not included in the description or in Kay's reservation, and language to that effect was provided to Kay and her party at check-in. There was no bath mat at the tub/shower which was included and that has been remedied. The floors throughout were treated prior to Kay's arrival by a professional crew with years of hospitality cleaning expertise using a new power steam scrubber and were in excellent and clean condition. All of the fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen were clean. The laundry location was described in documentation provided and when Kay texted at 9:30pm about not understanding the location, I called her at 10:30 the following morning to clarify, but received no answer. I then texted her to call me for clarification and never received a call back.

During her stay, a few communications went back and forth regarding minor questions that were immediately answered. And despite documentation requesting that any concerns over the property be brought to my attention, I received no feedback whatsoever from Kay or anyone in her party regarding the condition of the property until Kay's flight was delayed and she messaged me that she would need to stay an extra night beyond her booking date. Upon receipt of her message, I immediately shuffled my personal schedule around, rescheduled the clean-up crew, rescheduled a meeting planned at the property the following morning, and contacted AirBNB to extend her reservation; all in an effort to accommodate her request. AirBNB processed the reservation changes and sent her communications to approve any charges to remain there the extra night and that is when things turned very sour with her. She not only insisted that she should not pay for an unscheduled additional night, but threatened that she would write a negative review for the property. In private feedback to me which accompanied her review above, she wrote; "It seems to me that you could have paid those fees and earned some good will from us."

I remain sorry that any guest's expectations were not met, but the property is described honestly, with accurate pictures, and any guest is welcome to contact me immediately with any issues they have regarding anything at the property. All guest concerns are addressed immediately. Much of Kay's review is sour grapes over not being given a free unscheduled night "off the AirBNB books". As I explained to her, as the owner of the property, I am unwilling to assume that liability or risk with any AirBNB guest.

Thanks for the review Rocky! I enjoyed having you all as guests. Sorry about the floors not being perfect. The size of the property makes one day turn-arounds challenging and I was a bit short-staffed. I'm glad you and your guests enjoyed the property and all had a great time in New Orleans!

    Just across the street, there is a cab stand where taxis frequent during the day. You can usually catch a cab by simply walking over. You can also call a cab to pick you up at the property.
