Response from Lyn:
My earlier review was pretty mild because I thought that Shannon and her partner were careless or clumsy, rather than disrespectful or anything deliberate. There were issues though, and I'm going to list them now because they haven't done anything to address just two things that I asked. It looks like I can't get AirBnb's help because the time's up. So what happened during their stay, and after? > They burned the carpet in the living room with the iron. > They damaged the kitchen blind (they said it didn't work, which was not the case) > They packed something (expensive) that belonged to me in their bags when they left. They haven't returned it so I think that counts as stolen. > There are chips and scratches on walls and doors that weren't here when I left. > They left my key in an insecure place instead of where I asked. > They left several bags worth of clothes and bedding in cupboards and under the bed ... for me to throw out I guess. > They left a pot of mouldy food in the stairwell where it stunk out the neighbours (it was a pot of sauerkraut that I had left, thinking it would be fine. It wasn't and they didn't tell me about it so I couldn't do anything to help, and now the pot gone/stolen. It was a pretty expensive handmade pot). > After promising to return my property and reimburse me for what's missing they haven't. Now, going through this list, I remember that they asked for a discount when they extended their stay. I gave it, which I regret. I've had several people stay at my place and this is the only time I wished I hadn't. If you are a host offering your own place then I suggest you don't book them. They seem nice but they won't respect you or your home.
