Olivea and Ed were a joy to host. We didn't get to meet with them since they were out and about enjoying the City, and definitely we loved knowing that they had a great time!
They followed all the house rules and left the Studio nice and clean. Would definitely love to have them back anytime!
I had excellent communication with Olivea prior to her arrival at my apartment. She was a first time airbnb user and she had a lot of questions, but she seemed very enthusiastic and sweet. Unfortunately the overall experience didn't turn out to be as positive as I had anticipated based on that communication.
It's always difficult to gauge the expectations of a guest, and as a host I always try to give as much information as possible and make sure the guest knows that I'm around and available to address any issues that they have. Having felt that I had taken a lot of extra time with Olivea I was disappointed to read about a collection of fairly incidental problems that she had with my apartment in her review of her visit. As a host it is very troubling when this happens, particularly when most of the issues could have been easily fixed had they been brought up to me. The last thing a host wants is for a guest to be bothered by anything at all or to leave with a negative impression, and not having the opportunity to address and fix the problems is even more troubling and feels pretty terrible.
Beyond that, Olivea is an exceptionally tidy guest and seemed very observant of all house rules. She also left behind a selection of bottled water for the next guests which was very thoughtful.
