Response from Miranda:
Before my trip I inquired about yoga and surfing although I never gave any impression that I would be out all day or solely committed to any of the above activities. I am more of a traveler than a tourist and like to not make concrete plans and just go where the day takes me. As a homeowner I am fully aware that food garbage in any other room than the kitchen can cause ants. I never threw any food garbage out in the room. I did indeed store pantry items in my room as it was my room for the week that I paid for. One of the reasons I use a site such as Airbnb is so I have the option to cook whilst I travel. I was told numerous times by Teri not to use the stove/oven in the new apartment only the microwave which is not a suitable substitute for me. The ad clearly stated private room. Under no circumstances would I have stayed in a shared room. In regards to the cigarette smoking, the ad stated smoking outside was fine. Teri herself was smoking inside and outside during the time I was there. Alcohol wise, I did enjoy some brews and vino on the porch and Teri herself purchased and consumed malt liquor. If anyone has the right to feel compromised it would surely be the guest not the "host."
