We were supposed to rent the entire place but There were actually hidden tenants living in the garage which the owners kept secret - never said a word about them - the tenants were making noises banging the walls drilling hammering at night 1am - they were around the property dur…

Jessica instant booked our 4 bedroom home which accommodates over 16 people for just herself and her boyfriend on the afternoon of check-in without any contact (it was already past regular check-in time). When we reached out to her, given these red flags, she said it would be her boyfriend checking in first at 5pm. Given the latest slew of fraudulent bookings on Airbnb, we explained to her that the person booking and paying must be the person checking-in and we would need to verify her identity. She said she would be coming at 6:30 and would happily meet with us then (this is all verified by Airbnb messenger conversation). She had the option to cancel if she didn't feel comfortable at that time as we disclosed to her that we do require identification and payment method verification, but in fact, she said she completely understood the reason behind it and had no problem. We met with Jessica at her requested time of 6:30. We are both real estate professionals, one of us is actually a broker in multiple states, so no one looked her up and down as she claims. We had a very pleasant conversation and simply asked her about her boyfriend since she wanted him to check in earlier but for some reason he wasn't with her only an hour and a half later. She checked in and we did not hear from her for the rest of her stay. She had absolutely no questions or concerns. We do have a separate full time rented studio on our property that has no access to the main house whatsoever. However, this information is also fully disclosed on the listing itself for the last 2 years, and while it is the guest's responsibility to read the listing in entirety before booking, we are guessing that Jessica, in her hurry to book, failed to do so A Very very quiet lady has been living there for years. Jessica's statement about banging at 1am was definitely a lie along with her other embellishments and exaggerations. Our home is also professionally cleaned after every guest, we don't clean it ourselves. Maybe Jessica's lies are a result of her own failure to read the listing or a clever attempt to defraud airbnb. In any event, our conversations are saved in airbnb messenger and Jessica, you will hardly get too far in life with this approach.
I don't like to give bad reviews, so I'll be short and prompt with this. The house did not meet our expectations, house was not clean and kept like it showed in the pictures. The worst part was that it wasn't safe; the back door would not lock. The only positive thing I can say i…

These girls were difficult to work with from the moment of booking. They booked for a bachelorette party and at some point decided they wanted to cancel to move their party to a different location closer to downtown clubs. Then they decided to stay afterall. I should have known then that they would be a problem. Unfortunately for me, I happen to mention to them that I would be on vacation out of the country during their visit so the day after check in they wrote a list of complaints that included their objection to having pool toys in the pool (go figure) among other ridiculous complaints such as a complaint about 1 sheet having (FRESH) deodorant stains that was obviously put there by one of the guests in her party. My co-host quickly arrived to the property to discuss and remedy issues which upset them even more since their goal was to take advantage of my absence to scam Airbnb after they had their party. It’s a shame that screenshots can’t be posted here as evidence. I actually offered them to vacate with a refund of remainder of the minimum nights they booked because these girls need to be home trained before ever being let into anyone else’s home again. Our home is stocked with fresh linens and the home is professionally cleaned after every guest. Since their departure I’ve had another large group that was very happy with their stay as has been the history here, and we look forward to continuing the season with our happy guests.
