East coaster on the West coast. But these days I mostly feel martian.
Staying at Jazmin's was 1 of the worst experiences I have had on airbnb. I stayed at Jazmin's for a month. Before arriving Jazmin and I spoke on the phone her property lists no pets allowed. After speaking Jazmin agreed to let me bring Rocky. If she had not I would've looked else where. Upon arriving there were signs all over the building that said no pets allowed. When I got into the house it was very big and spacious but, the floors were disgusting you could not walk on it without wearing shoes. I swept and mopped the floors in order to feel comfortable while I was there. The bathroom shower also had mold in it. Jazmin did supply the towels but, that was the only thing she supplied. The house is also extremely hot but there were fans in the rooms. As soon as I turned the one bedroom fan on the neighbor from downstairs was pounding on the door and started screaming at me saying It was too noisy and she had sick people downstairs and she was tired of seeing Jazmin have people in and out of the house and she was gonna call the superintendent. By the sounds of that I don't think Jazmin is supposed to be renting her place out at all. Considering I had planned on staying there all month I left the fan off. 2 weeks before my stay was up Jazmin contacted me asking if I wanted to stay for another month, I responded I would have to get back to her. She then offered a way better deal then what she had previously offered me via text so I told her that sounds great. Jazmin waited about 5 days before she actually sent me the new offer on airbnb. The following day I emailed her saying How sorry I was but, I wouldn't be able to rent her place because I was visiting my family in Washington. Jazmin went on to harass me saying why are you doing this to me? Called over and over, left voicemails, sent more texts saying Are you having sudden life change in plans? She finally stopped with that. Before leaving I left the house cleaner then I found it swept and mopped all the floors again. Upon dropping the keys off I asked for 30 extra min. To check out since I had been working that day. She absolutely refused to give me an extra 30 min. Considering I had stayed there an entire month I was shocked she couldn't be more flexible. I however obliged and sent my boyfriend to drop off her keys. She couldn't even pick up the keys herself she had one of her friends meet up with me. Lastly Jazmin went on to bash me on airbnb saying how dirty I was when all my other reviews mention how tidy I am. The experience was horrifying. Jazmin is very unprofessional and desperate to rent out her place.
We just stayed at Jazmin's place over the weekend. Every detail was on point. Getting our keys was a breeze, the location was great (Kebab King has the best Bengali food ever!), the place was super tidy and spacious, she had clean towels and sheets prepared, and overall, the apartment was just very inviting. Our experience in New York (a city I don't visit nearly enough) was definitely given a boost because of this place. I highly recommend staying at Jazmin's apartment in the fabulous Jackson Heights if you're ever visiting NYC!
Ideal guest, very clean and considerate. Would love to have them anytime.
