This is one of those rare bad experiences in renting your private home to unknown guests when someone blatantly lies to you, breaks your trust and doesn't adhere to the house rules.
Kim came in the 1st weekend with her boyfriend and I found out from our gardner/caretaker that she had brought a dog with her despite our no pet policy which she was clearly aware of. When she said she wanted to rent our place again the following weekend, I spoke to her to make sure this wouldn't happen again. She assured me it wouldn't. However, she then emailed me repeatedly to ask that our gardner/caretaker not come around during her second stay. Our gardner is extremely unobtrusive and spends just minutes on the property taking care of the plants and the fact that she was so insistent raised a red flag for me. Property management is part of any country home and not to have someone care for it for 3 days is out of the question. After her second stay, once she and her friends had left, our towels (not just one) were ruined with blood stains and one of the bedroom walls was stained with dirt/water marks. I really don't want to know what they did in the house but they clearly have no respect for house rules or maintaing any decorum. I found Kim to be demanding, unreasonable and disrespectful and would definitely not recommend her as a guest.
