I am saddened that you felt you had a bad experience staying here.
I do work hard to try and provide a great space for all my guests.
I feel your review is quite misleading and unfortunately requires some clarification.
I am uncertain as to how you could be confused when the day you booked and mentioned you were wanting to bring 4 dogs for the weekend I replied into the airbnb thread with the standard pet terms and conditions which included:
A one off fee of $35 applies to each animal.
and of course the listing does not mention my son lives in the garage because he doesn't.
My listing does say however
"I live in the self contained apartment at the end of the home with my cat Jasper and dog , Tank and am available to help in anyway"
5 weeks of wet weather and the regular mower man was behind on his 2 weekly mow so my son did come and mow the lawns the day you arrived to help me out. I have no idea why you would you say it took 2 days? That is just silly. It would not have even taken him 2 hours. My normal guy does it in 1 hour.
With regard to the discussion about the payment for the dogs, airbnb advised me to contain the conversation to the platform which I did. They could also see that I had advised you of the charge for the animals the day you booked. I followed their advice and do not believe at any time I was aggressive or defensive. The morning I asked for you to fix me up for the dogs I was on my out and was surprised when you said you wanted to discuss it. Unfortunately at that time I needed to be somewhere on time so continued on my way. I apologise if my hasty departure was interpreted as aggression. It certainly was not intended that way.
Again, I am disappointed you were confused regarding the dog charge so I will ensure in future with other guests that I verbally confirm this as well as put it in writing. Or maybe I will just not accept animals in future, I will have to think about that.
I am not sure what else I could have done differently to have made your stay more acceptable to you but I do hope you continue to use airbnb as it is a great way for people to share their homes with others.
