Response from Marc:
I am sorry you were not happy with your stay Michael!
I have to admit on being hard on Michael in terms of communication, because I had the feeling that he did not have a lot of respect for my home: On the first day he broke a window and a week later the shower curtain. I think all my previous guests can confirm that I am pleasant to communicate with :)
We met before Michael rented, in person and in place so he could have a thorough look at my apartment. I showed him I had no cooking equipment and he said that was fine since he'd bring his own anyways. I told Michael on the first day of moving in, that he can not list my apartment as his living place due to legal reasons and he was fine with that too. He never asked about the cable TV, could've been explained in a minute...
I offered plenty of times, to waive the booking, because Michael seemed unhappy, but he did not act on it. I find it sad to not take that option but write such a review here now.
Regarding the broken window & shower curtain: I thought I should not be the one paying for that, obviously. I did not 'threaten' in any way but I filed a case for the deposit the regular way and AirBNB decided that Michael has to pay 100% of the window and 50% of the shower curtain.
Finally: To say my apartment is unclean is really upsetting me, as it is just not true. Michael might have had a problem with *me* but to write something like that - when it is not true - is just below the belt! I made a video the day I left the apartment and one can see that the whole apartment is in very clean condition, which is super important to me and all of my previous guests can confirm that!
