Response from Jennifer:

As a host with five 1/2 years of experience and perspective, relative to Meghan's, which includes no other experiences to compare with, I confidently weigh in with the following responses: Meghan seemed to be a friendly person but unfortunately, was extremely high maintenance from the get go, expected to be treated as if she were in a five star hotel on her $20/night budget, did not follow house rules, and sadly, lied about a variety of things during her stay, as well as in her review. For these reasons, she did not receive a refund from myself or on her reservation through the system when calling in, as she was not entitled to one. Despite practically demanding a refund after a friend offered her a place to stay, which she found more convenient and flat-out told me so, she was denied. Moreover, when speaking with Meghan on the phone, she entirely changed her story halfway through about why she was leaving, which was confirmed to me by someone in the apt, whom Meghan told she was leaving because she wanted more space of her own and to be closer to campus, where her workshops were, as well as because she was past the point in her life of happily sharing communal space with others--all of which she stated to me in varying ways and times, as well. **To note, when Meghan first contacted me, I encouraged her to look into more private, closer accommodations to her daily routine but she wanted to stick within her budget, although clearly, it ultimately was revealed to me that she wasn't a good match for the space she selected primarily because she wasn't looking to be a team player but rather, was super focused on having her needs expressed and met constantly, which is why she just assumed outright that she would receive a refund and became escalators when she didn't such that I had to keep referring her to customer service. Regarding Meghan's accusations: The first is a flat-out lie, which I've reported, as its against policy to lie in reviews. I did, in fact, receive a boil water advisory alert and informed all guests, multiple times over several days with updates as the city status changed, including discussing it with Meghan. Second, a different, accurate version of her story-the toilet handle broke the morning that Meghan arrived and was fixed within less than 48 hours, despite it being a weekend over the summer, when affordable handymen are difficult to find, which I spent the weekend doing. The toilet worked the entire time, simply required lifting the back momentarily to flush, not particularly arduous or taxing, particularly for $20/night. I kept in touch with Meghan and other guests throughout this time.0, too, just as I kept them informed of the city-wide boil water advisory. Third, another lie, this time of omission-Meghan BROKE HOUSE RULES by not storing -HER- food properly (she failed to mention in the review that SHE left food out) and even admitted to me that she saw the house rules about food storage in writing online/posted in the apt/heard me say it on the phone...but thought she could do what she wanted, regardless?! 4. Meghan also failed to acknowledge that I coached her through how to contact customer service and encouraged her to tell the truth about choosing a poor match for herself so that she might receive some travel credit in the future. In sum, I went above and beyond to stay in touch with Meghan, support her needs, teach her how to effectively resolve differences tween host/guest, and was super kind to her in the process. I only wish she had left the unnecessary conflict at home, been more honest with me personally, as well as in the review, and assessed her own needs accurately, which I also tried to help her with before she made a commitment. That's what keeps shared economy services functioning well for all. I also hope Meghan she takes more responsibility and accountability for her choices next time. Again, the system works best for all that way.
