Timothy Corpus is the kind of guest I would never recommend to anyone and I would never host if I knew about him before.
He is a rude man, a huge liar, and I highly suspect he has some kind of serious mental illness.
I rented my apt many times through AIRBNB and never had a real problem, until I meet him.
Unfortunately it seems he didn't like my apartment.
Although I always do my best to please everyone, that's something I could understand once it's impossible to please everybody in this world.
He spent many days in my apartment, and if he called me or told me personally one single problem about it, I would have given my best to help him immediately, or even give him his money back if there was no way of helping him.
But he was a huge liar in his reference about my apartment - and I can prove it.
In his reference to me he says there is no honesty of presentation and truth in the advertisement of it.
He complains about my online photos of it, saying the photos are Photoshopped and don't really show the truth.
I say most of my photos were taken by a professional photographer hired by AIRBNB, and shows exactly what the apartment really is.
The furniture and walls are still the exactly same way you can see through the photos.
The bed sheets and pillowcases were 100% news for him, bought a few hours before he arrived, and I payed a cleaning woman to clean the whole apartment for his arrival (and he saw her).
My second toilet he complains about is quiet small, but works perfectly fine, and no other guest ever complained about it.
About my shower, he didn't know how to handle it, mixing the cold water with the warm water, and that's the only reason why he wasn't able to shower properly - no other guest had a problem with it too.
And the craziest lie, he says the apartment has no relativity to any beach (although the name of it is "Front of The Beach" and so he suggest this is a "marketing gimmick").
Well, this is absurd.
The first thing you see through the balcony's landscape, is that the apartment is front of Flamengo's beach (you can see through the photos, anyone can check in (website hidden) Maps through its address, he is all wrong and lying about it).
He is the first and only one to give me such a bad reference, and even complains about the other many good references I got, saying people should "reconsider their presentations".
This is serious for me, I do my best to provide for the best to my guests, and what he did is a very serious insult for me.
I love my apartment, I do my best for my guests, I take good care of both, and Timothy would never be welcome to my place again.
He is first man ever I write a reference like this, and I strongly hope hi is the last one to make deserve it from me.
His reference for me is so full of absurd lies, and I highly recommend everybody to be extremely careful with this man.
