I teach English in Paris and am the Vice President of TESOL France. I work a lot but like having people over from time to time. I usually return to the Bay Area where I am from in the summer and enjoy having a change in routine.

Please note that the room description indicates that it is for one person. Arrangements otherwise should be requested before your arrival. I enjoyed having Sascha and everyone I introduced him to liked him. Maybe one should remember that you are in someone else's home and it does not run like yours. thanks for coming and I am sure we will be in touch through my niece whom you met.
I am a teacher and it is indicated in the description. It is not a hotel and it is clean. If you do not like books etc... then this is not the place for you. I liked having you and your colleagues here but I think you forgot that I am a teacher and this is not a hotel for rent. Felipe, you and your colleagues had a good deal and yet my house, where I live, was not as one would live someone's home.

MY RESPONSE ACCORDING TO HER SPECIFIC STATEMENTS. "She consistently lied to us, as well as lied and lacked respect to the hosting management and cleaning staff." A LIE !!! "Our cleaning service reported she brought two inflatable mattresses that were not authorized in our agreement and could not fit into the apartment. She attempted to install these mattresses in the access hall of the rental, which is also the emergency exit of the house, claiming that our space was claustrophobic and she needed to keep the door open at all times. She tried to force a reservation cancellation and a full reimbursement on us the first day by saying she did not have the opportunity to visit the rental prior to her arrival, and by making allegations of unresponsive hosts and broken facilities (clogged toilets). She wrote and called at 1 am in the morning with an issue we offer to fix right away, that was fabricated, with the sole purpose to force a cancellation." ANOTHER LIE WITH FOUR WITNESSES TO TESTIFY. WHEN I CALLED THE NUMBER ON THE RESERVATION IT WAS THE HOSTESS WHO KEPT BRINGING UP THEIR CANCELLATION POLICY, we only needed to toilets to be unclogged( one 27yr old male and three females over 65 would not lie about toilets). Airmatresses were in the hall because we used them elsewhere, and nowhere does it say we can't sleep on them... but I slept in the car the first night and then at a friends( also a legal witness) the other nights. At no time were airmattresses put UP in the hall. they were in boxes to be out of the way because of the lack of space in the In-Law Apt. THERE WAS NO MISTREATMENT OF ANY PERSON AT ANY TIME. NO INSULTS, LIES OR OTHER. AIRBNB WILL NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THOSE WHO INSIST ON LIES TO KEEP THEIR SUPER HOST STATUS. SOME PLACES AND SITUATIONS JUST ARE NOT A RIGHT FIT. I DID TRY TO MEET WITH THEM SINCE I WAS FROM THE AREA AND THERE BEFORE THE RENTAL DATE, BUT THEY WERE NOT AVAILABLE, IT IS A DIFFICULT THING TO SWALLOW WHEN WHATEVER YOU SAY IS MISCONSTRUED AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS GET AMPLIFIED. FOR ME, MY CLIENTS WERE MY FIRST PRIORITY AND IT WAS NOT THE RIGHT TYPE OF PLACE FOR THEM, BUT WE WERE THERE ONLY SIX NIGHTS. FOR THOSE WHO LIKE THIS TYPE OF PLACE, WELL YOU WILL BE JUST FINE THERE. VALUE FOR MONEY DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU NEED AND WANT. IT IS JUST TOO BAD FOR THE LIES FROM PEOPLE I HAVE NEVER MET....
