I have to preface this review by saying that I hosted Charlene and her husband and 3 kids. I anticipated such a large group would bring some noise and a little chaos but it was much more than I anticipated.
The positive part of meeting Charlene and her family and friends was that they are very sweet people. The house rules I stated were generally followed without an issue.
The down side was that I wish I had made MORE rules. Things that possibly could have been avoided with bigger rule set:
Jumping on the bed,
Using aromatherapy diffusers
Leaving wet wash cloths on the carpet
Overall they seemed a bit forgetful. I had to explain 3 or 4 times to close the kitchen doors when leaving to keep the dogs out. Even after several explanations of locking the door they left it unlocked at check out.
As a host I learned that if I don't want an entire container of something to be consumed don't put it all out,
There were also many needs that weren't communicated in advance. Needed to use a computer frequently, needed help with turn by turn directions and detailed transit help, checked in 2 hours early with little warning, arrived with an extra person etc Overall they are kind people but I was constantly attending their needs and I felt uneasy leaving the house with them there. Nothing was damaged but it was messy and they left items I need to ship back.
