Like every facet of life sometimes you can't make everyone happy. Linda and her husband were impossible to please. It's pretty clear based on all the other favorable reviews these people were impossible and the things they complained over are severely unfounded. To complain about a working class neighborhood as a negative? I'm not even sure what to even reply with that. There's free street parking for all and to complain the length of which to park? Impossible standards considering most neighborhoods were erected in the 1940's where typically homes are attached here, the windows are from that era, the building structures also from that era. I have had so many wonderful experiences with guests as a host; having these people here was not one of them. I realize they're new to airbnb but I can't imagine expecting San Francisco to read as some spacious cul-de-sac for appeasement. They were high-maintenance from the start but I overlooked it. I should've known from the beginning how impossible they would be. The light fixtures in the kitchen they are complaining over? I dismantled them long ago because altogether there's three lights in there and it's best to use one and not three. The crazy wiring they're talking about? It's an extension cord with option to utilize more electrical outlets for my guests because as we all know houses erected in the 40's; didn't come with many electrical outlets like they do nowadays. In speaking with Linda's husband on the phone, he was extremely paranoid in his words and was quite rude. I'd like to think anyone traveling that if they go to a city like San Francisco, you're going to live how San Franciscan's do, travel via public transportation like SF people do. To come here and expect it to be something it isn't and never will be (a spacious city where houses do not connect and the like) is an impossibility. I've had my fair share of wonderful guests and will resign myself to the fact you cannot please everyone and never will. I have no issue if someone doesn't like something but to be so paranoid and claim unfounded things is just too much for anyone. I wish these people the best and hope they stick to cities that have flourished within the last couple decades and not like the great San Francisco that are all older in architecture; and that's the way San Francisco likes it.
Linda was a stellar guest! She was great to communicate with, left the cottage perfect, took care of the dishes, she is welcome back anytime! Thanks Linda, hope to see you again!
