This was my first time hosting via Airbnb. The booking was last minute so it ended up being slightly stressful, but we were able to sort through making it work. However, I did not know about adding a cleaning fee which I would recommend with this guest, particularly if no one else will be present to host. I returned to a very messy/dirty apartment... It was as though every vessel that could hold liquid was used before any dishes had been attempted. The dishes that were washed required another round of scrubbing as many of them had the crusty food still stuck to them. There were several empty beer bottles/whiskey bottle left around and wet dirty towels left on the floor (the 2 I had left out for him to use, one of which appeared to have been used to mop up something that spilled and my beach towel which was a surprise). My books were left out in various places, one with food crumbs within the pages. Both sticky table surfaces certainly reflected the fact that food had been consumed there. There were also piles of incense ashes in a couple places and signs of an unauthorized overnight guest. And although I did invite him to help himself to my food, I but hadn't expected that he would eat it all, which he did. Also, there were some strange personal items that failed to make into his suitcase when he packed up including dirty socks, a scarf, earrings, incense, toothbrush and toothpaste, razor, unused condoms, a few minor food items, laundry detergent capsules and a USB port charger. On the bright side, besides one minor broken shelf, nothing was seriously damaged or stolen. Although it was upsetting to return to my lovely apartment in such a state, it provided good learning in hosting that clear house rules are essential, as "clean up after yourself" may not be specific enough. Additionally, it will be worth looking into adding a cleaning fee if I decide to try hosting again.
Zachary was a great guest. He was very easy to communicate with and left the apartment spotless. I would definitely host him again!
