It was a great pleasure to host Lydia and Mimi! They were totally charming and really engaged in their Santa Fe experience. I wish we had been able to spend more time together as they were some of the most interesting guests I have met through AirBnB. They left the casita in great shape, and I give Lydia an unqualified recommendation . And I hope they can get back to Santa Fe soon!
We enjoyed very much having Lydia and Mark with us. Very nice couple and we´d love to have them coming back.
Strange way. To communicate, to enter in Airbnb contest, to interact with people hosting you.
I don't wanna judge. Just encouraging people like "New User" (New is the first name, Nee for friends, and User the family name), to trust a bit more, in this dangerous and angry world, when in presence of people like in Airbnb Community.
You have a name, and a family name.
I'll know only your name, before booking, and your family name after booking.
Which is also a due when you get hosted all around the world.
In Airbnb is also nice when you give a real picture of you, and introduce yourself. I'm a filmmaker, I like cooking, et cetera.
Serial killers are not helped so much, by those infos.
Hosts are, indeed.
Airbnb is (email hidden) organization. It's people who give their home.
Apartments full of things to be improved, very often (I would say in the best case: I've been once in an Airbnb host apt, and I felt like in a hotel. Too bad!)
If you ask me for something, And I give you my aid, for instance sending you someone while I have a broken leg, then a "everything ok, or not", is required.
Fourth. More correct behaviour.
If you finally write a mail to the host, saying everything is great, and may I book one night more, then there's a big distance from your private words, and your review.
But Airbnb is made for a higher level of trust, between people.
Thank you for your critics, apart from my considerations, New. (May I call you by name?).
I'm almost ready to fix all those issues, all true, which are in part (stove burnings) a bit expensive.
Welcome again in Naviglio Grande.
