I'm from Venice and I like to surf.
Susanna and her husband are a delightful couple that we greatly enjoyed hosting her at the Malibu Zen Retreat. They radiated positive energy, sheer happiness and total engagement with their surroundings. We had a great conversation over breakfast with them, and my only regret is that they couldn't stay longer to hear more about their fascinating experiences. They left the room absolutely spotless, having done virtually all the housekeeping for me. Of course, I would recommend them highly to any host!
DO NOT RENT YOUR HOUSE TO HER!
Worst guest since I started renting my house.
First Susanna is not a real person... This person that did the booking wasn't even there. I was communicating with someone other than her so the people staying in my home didn't have access to our previous conversations.
These guests had a sense of entitlement thinking that they were staying in a hotel. They had no respect for the house and my home furnishings. I found two pieces of expensive artwork on the stair between floors and they were scratched! Who would move artwork?
While these guests were at work they left all the lights on... all 3 floors (including closets). I found an electric heater running in one of the bedroom which could have ultimately caused a fire.
My house is for sale like many of the other AirB&B hosts. I had a buyer who wanted to see the property last minute. She was in town for one day from Boston so needed access to the property for only 30 minutes. This was a business group so the showing was done while they were at work. For this inconvenience they were given a 25% discount and i bought $25 of French baked goods as a thank you.
