You know that a guest that brings you gourmet cotton candy has to be pretty fantastic, and Melissa was! Polite, friendly, considerate -- she's an all-around perfect guest.
Melissa was a great guest. She left the place in great condition, and even left some dessert in the fridge! She was clean and very good about responding to emails.
I've traveled with Melissa, dined with Melissa, and socialised with Melissa. I've even driven Melissa around Los Angeles. So I know for sure she's a courteous travelmate who packs light, she eats with her mouth closed and with the proper implements, and she's not uncouth. It also means she's not a backseat driver. I'd say those are more than worthy traits to trust anyone on your AirBNB couch.
And if those aren't good enough traits to trust Melissa, I know she's extremely conscientious, which means if something did go wrong, she'd tell you. Not that I expect her to break your Lladro or 18th century Meisen lattice platter, but if she did, she wouldn't shirk her responsibility to you.
Speaking of Lladro or 18th century Meisen: That doesn't belong in your AirBNB flat. Put it away.
Back to Melissa... your flat is safe with her. Trust me. All my Lladro are still intact!
Melissa would make a great guest at any home. She is not only responsible and neat, but practices Hawai'i island-style values, which means: we take care of the homes of our hosts; don't make pilikia ("trouble"); and be respectful of both people and things.
