When Rebecca arrived she seemed nice enough. Then she told me her group was bringing an extra person on top of how many she booked the space for. The day after her and her group's first noisy night, I did my best to be a friendly and diplomatic host by offering her the chance to pay just half the cost shown in my listing for additional individuals after two guests, and from that point on she ignored me and any further attempts to communicate. The first night, her and her group stayed up in the common-area backyard well into the early morning, drinking and creating so much noise and an overbearing presence, our neighbors complained and other Air B&B guests in the building didn't feel comfortable sharing the backyard common-area w/ them. She continued to ignore my request to communicate through when she and her group checked out, not even replying to my inquiry if they had even left yet after the scheduled check-out time. She never returned the key to the space and left it a mess, including a spray of vomit on the back of the bathroom door that was left to dry, leaving it permanently stained. The only communication received from her was in response to my final message to her that one of her group members left a bag of clothes and did she want me to hang onto it for someone to pick up. No surprise, that was the one message she did respond to. It became clear that this guest and her group had little to no concern for the "campsite" rule of leaving a space or an area the way you found it, or respect and common courtesy in regards to noise for others in close proximity. I would NOT recommend approving any reservation request from this individual unless you don't care if your space is trashed, your neighbors aren't pleased and your efforts to be a helpful, conscientious & communicative host are thrown back in your face. THUMBS DOWN.
***There was an air mattress, it wasn't requested by this guest.
The wifi definitely works, but this guest never said they had any problem throughout the duration of their stay.
The A/C is sufficient, and no mention of it's inadequacy appears in any other reviews.
The tent in the common space is a beach shade tent placed in the area of the backyard that receives the least amount of direct sunlight, in the furthest corner from the house, for shade and relaxation, in addition to the sun-sails hoisted over a large part of the backyard common-area, pictured in the listing.
After sleeping on the 3rd floor of the building in another room on the first night of this groups reservation, i rescheduled my plans to leave town for fear the 2nd night this group was there would be worse than the 1st, which neighbors and other Air B&B guests complained about.
The sleeping accommodations ARE adequate for up to 5 people, but only intended for sleeping. Numerous, detailed photos of the space are clearly shown in the listing.
When booking this space, this guest obviously overlooked the details in the listing regarding what the accommodations were like and it's pricing details, in favor of assuming what she would prefer for her own benefit.
Hosts be warned about this guest and her lack of communication. If there's something you might need to discuss with her, expect to be ignored to the point of utter disrespect. She claimed that once she arrives at an Air B&B booking, she doesn't have any obligation to communicate w/ her host, for better or worse. Imagine that.
Again, Thumbs Down :-(
