FORTUNATELY MANY GUESTS HAVE STAYED WITH US AND HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. This is the second time Mr Quaye visited, and it was not a good experience for us. This kind of guest is a nightmare for hosts as they are very selfish, self centred and seem out to take advantage of you from the start. If you value your home, then I would avoid this guest completely. On the day Mr Quaye and his wife were due to arrive, he "accidentally" disclosed that his 3 children were also coming with him. Our listing clearly states that each additional person is an additional cost. However he had not disclosed or paid for them. When I requested payment from Mr Quaye he stated that himself and his wife did not see why they needed to pay for their children. It was only when I registered a formal complaint to Airbnb that he agreed to pay a portion of the costs. As I was not in Barbados during his stays, on enquiry I discovered that on his previous visit, not only his children but his entire extended family who live on the island also stayed at the apartment and used the air con and washing machine like a public facility; that during both visits the front door and windows were frequently left open, and the air conditioning was left running all day. After they left we had to pay for an emergency plumber to unclog the sink as garbage and food were washed down the drain. Several shower curtain rings were removed presumably by the children and are missing/ need to be replaced; dirty dishes were left in the cupboard. And on and on.
Happily many of our guests disagree with you, and enjoyed very much staying at our apartment. Definately, bring your own blow dryer and percolated coffee maker, as its true we dont have those. There is AC available in the Master bedroom and in the living area, but as is normal, the 2nd bedroom doesn't have it. I strongly would recommend that you look into staying at a 5 star hotel for your next trip, and assume the price difference!
