Response from Maya:
Thank you for a great review Shawn. Nobody has ever sent a hug to my cats before! Thanks for loving them as well as my daughter and I do! Best (and Purrrr!) from Maya (and Katie-Cushion and GreyWolf )
Response from Maya:
Thanks Alexey, you guys were great guests, glad you enjoyed the place and my sweet cats. I'm going to do a trouble-shooting session with Time Warner today and get to the bottom of why people are having trouble logging on, that is intolerable when I think of how much they charge me monthly! Happy Olympics! Best from Maya
Response from Maya:
I did not realize that there was a problem with the stove until Fleur told me about it. As soon as she did I called the super immediately and spent an hour making a arrangements to get someone to come the next morning to shut off the gas according to the guests's wishes, so I'm not sure why she says I didn't call the super, she sat next to me while I had about 5 phone calls with him. A new stove was promised to me and it could have been arranged, but they couldn't bring it the very next morning, things like that have to be ordered and one usually has to wait at least two days. If she had stayed I would have gotten her a new stove asap. I had originally suggested leaving the windows cracked open for a bit for fresh air, but then the temperature went down and she complained of being cold so i naturally suggested closing the window since you certainly cannot get the place warm with windows open. The gas smell was so faint one had to stand with face down by the burners to detect it and I live there so I know it isn't even detectable otherwise.
No one walked in and out, without her previous knowledge and permission. I asked her before I came if it was okay that I brought more cat food up, I didn't expect her to buy it! She had made a last minute booking and I had about 3 hours to clean the place and didn't have time to replenish the cat's food before she checked in, but I did all the other cleaning, changing linens, cleaning kitchen, bathroom and floors with vacuum and mop. I may have missed inside the stove hood! I don't know where else she would have me put the cat's litter box??? The bathroom seems an appropriate place. In the apartment letter on the airbnb site, it plainly tells all details about the AC, it is brand new and works, but why in the world would one need that when its freezing outside? It is NOT in a plastic window! As for the lock, it can be temperamental, I'm not sure why, I DID have the cylinder replaced in Jan of 2013 at a cost of 150.00, but it is still a bit tricky, but she didn't even try to learn how to use it, just left my place (website hidden) and WIFI is not so tricky, you only have to follow my written instructions and everything will work perfectly! I don't have time to respond to all of these ridiculous accusations, my place is not dirty, Fleur what do you even mean by rubbisch in the sofa?? If you are spending too much time inspecting all the cracks and crannies to see if can find a speck of dirt or dust somewhere, then my place isn't for you, and if you had taken the time to actually read the description on my site, you would have seen that, instead if sending me emails about how great it's going to be. You don't know that those emails go to my phone as a text and yes they DO wake me up at 4am! As for my rude ex, yes he is rude, that's why he is my EX and also why I had suggested that you be out when he was scheduled to come and turn off the gas. I admit I have no business referring to your family relationships, but you also were a bit of a harsh judge of me. I did my best to please you and fix the stove issue, which is a serious matter, but maybe this place was just not right for you, but I did my best to make you happy and you still felt the need to be insulting and (website hidden): One cannot have cats without having a litter box somewhere.
