I have this guest coming who keeps asking for stuff: blender, pack n play for baby, high chair, now she wants baby gates - and there are no stairs in the apartment. She asked about whether we have a spatula in the kitchen and I sent her a picture of the utensils in the kitchen and she said my spatula was a "turner."
Here are my ideas on how to respond:
外围体育投注Option one: "Hi, I'm afraid this might not be a good fit. This is a two-bedroom apartment and you might need space for all those red flags you're bringing - more than the Communist Party."
Option two: "Unfortunately, the downstairs neighbor has got a mild case of corona and ebola so please wear a hazmat suit..."
外围体育投注Option three: "Your request for baby gates for non-existent stairs suggests you might want to find accommodations with 24-hour supervision and mental service staff available."
Option four: "I don't know the difference between a turner and spatula. Which do you use to install baby gates where they don't belong?"
I think I'm going to just accommodate her. Suck it up and hope for the best.
外围体育投注Let's see what happens.
Max 12 hours, no guests, no use of the bedrooms. Only need the living area, bathroom, and back patio for a few breaks.
I booked (in June 2020) an Airbnb for a bachelorette party (in January 2021). However, the wedding fell apart and I’ve spent $1000 on the bachelorette party house.
The host said they’d give back the full refund but I’d need to contact Airbnb first (as if right now, when I go to cancel I’d only get back 50%).
外围体育投注I contacted Airbnb on August 4th, and I’ve tried everything to get a response. I’ve tweeted at them, called them, Facebook messaged them, and every time I get redirected to the same chat where they haven’t responded since August 4th.
Is anyone else experiencing this???
外围体育投注My airbnb host wants me to sign a lease to submit to her loan company so she can refinance her house. She says shell just submit it and rip it up. I said ill read it and i want a signed copy but they are hesitant. Is that even ok? Ive been here 2 weeks and i only have until the 28
外围体育投注Their mobile app is horrifying. Their customer support is horrible. They need someone to put them on edge so that they behave. I’m so irritated. The app never gets rid of the notifications even after I’ve opened all the messages. It’s annoying. Im always on hold forever. I was on hold for about an hour and they hung up on me. I’m so tired of them. Sorry for ranting.
Staying as a guest in Montreal for two weeks. I’m writing this on Thursday in week 1. I decided to come here with my friend and work from the Airbnb but also just get a change of scenery. Started a new job, so I’d be working remotely. We found a spot in a great part of the city for what seemed like a steal of a price.
When I first got in, immediately I noticed there was a lot of wear and tear in the apartment. The bathroom wasn’t « extremely clean », the bathtub was gross with a hole as drainage and rust around it, and an actual hole in the wall where the faucet is. I excused all of this because well, « I get what I pay for ».
First night, I noticed a strong uncomfortable scent on the pillows and bedding, I immediately text my friend who was coming a bit later to bring bedding to replace what the host provided. I also told him to bring cleaning supplies as none were provided and we’d have to be doing some light cleaning if we were staying for 2 weeks. When he arrived a day later, he was so disgusted with the state of the place (he also has OCD), that he spent the morning scrubbing and cleaning all over the bathroom, then the next day on his bedroom. The windows in both rooms were filthy when opened (interestingly enough the host had a rule where windows were not to be open, but the apartment has no ventilation so it gets incredibly hot if we don’t).
外围体育投注I excuse all this as, « we get what we pay for ». Then I find out, electrical outlets in the bedroom I’m staying in don’t work during the day. I send a message to the host, who says he’ll send someone to take a look at it. The person comes, does something in the kitchen, and says the problem should be fixed. It’s not. But I’m so exasperated between this new job, back to back meetings, problems with the Airbnb that I just dismiss everything and work around the inconvenience.
Then the crux. Wifi is terrible in the bedrooms, not even serviceable. We disconnected all our phones and tablets from the wifi and tried using just one phone in the bedroom, it can’t even load YouTube. First few days I remedied this by hot spotting my personal data and connecting my laptop through there. This is unsustainable as now I’ve reached my data cap. So wifi works in the common area where the router and modems are, but incredibly poor connection in the bedrooms. Quality on video calls is non existant. I would rather have my meetings and calls in the bedroom with door closed then in the common area where my roommate is walking around doing things. It’s so frustrating because this is an apartment, not a house, there should be proper wifi coverage in the bedroom.
I’ve enjoyed going on walks and seeing the city after work, but it’s been such a hellish experience so far that I just want to leave. But it’s way past the 24 hour period and all the money I paid will be lost.
外围体育投注Édit: oh and I forgot to add this. There is no microwave, even though it was stated in the listing. I’ve had to reheat food in the oven and purchase oven mits. I brought this up with the host, and he simply said « I don’t have a microwave. »
