Response from Acacia:

Sometimes, no matter how hard I try to facilitate a pleasant stay for me guests, they can't be pleased. Christine epitomised this. She was complicated, unhappy, and downright disrespectful from the start. In hindsight, I should have trusted my instinct and cancelled this booking. In Christine's first message she demanded a further discount on the price, then requested to check in 6 hours early - which I obliged to as I pride myself on being accommodating by nature. In the 3 weeks leading up to her arrival, I received countless messages from her more-or-less expecting me to plan her itinerary for her Byron stay and she would become agitated and rude when I did not reply within a few minutes. On the morning she was to arrive, she changed her flight and told me she would check-in at 3pm, rather than 9am. At 8pm I still hadn't heard from her, so naturally I tried to contact her. By 11pm she finally arrived with not so much as a smile, apology or gratitude that I had stayed up to welcome her. She did not adhere to basic house rules - she did not remove shoes inside the house, did not lock the front door when she went out for basic security of my possessions, continued to bring the neighbours cat inside and into her room, and inconsiderately woke the household by regularly staying up in the living area rowdy and unrestrained until well after midnight, even after I finally had to ask her if she would "please keep it down" to respect the household and basic house rules, she ignored my requests. She had no respect for me or my home, and with a sense of entitlement helped herself to my things while I was out. Worryingly, she has denied taking (stealing?) a beach towel. As with all guests, Christine was due to check-out at 10am. She did not bother to advise me or communicate with me to request a late check out and by 3pm she was still at my place with her bad attitude raging. I honestly breathed a sign of relief when she finally departed. Although I felt this would be a complicated booking, I accepted it, willing to give her a chance. And given that I tried to make conversation with her when we were altogether in the living room, she remained unwilling to engage and almost emotion-less (very odd and eerie woman). I do not recommend the Airbnb community accept bookings from this individual.
