I am from British Columbia, Canada but working from Sydney for the next couple months. I enjoy travel, outdoor activities, and meeting new people. I work in the Tourism and Travel industry.
I would not recommend this guest. He upgraded from a small room to a large studio room upon arrival. He said he would pay the extra money in cash at the end of his stay. Towards the end of his booking he asked if he could extend his stay for another 2 weeks due to his work. I agreed and reserved the room for him. However when his official booking period ended he did a runner overnight and left a note saying he had 'checked out'. He did not pay the additional $700 owing. I am not eligible for compensation from the security deposit through airbnb as I have no physical evidence.
I would highly recomend to avoid this guest.
