Let me write to cover all you said below w/out apologizing. This is YOUR home,,, Airbnb guests have a few privileges. See below:
I, Judy Brotherton, Pat's first guest, I asked Pat to allow me to respond to her 2nd guest's disappointing review.
Pat is so eager to please, she fast explained she did not know all that was expected of her. We became good friends fast & I call her from Seattle several times/week to check news on her busy, busy life. Pat is a stranger to no one for longer than a minute. She has endless friends w/daily social events to attend when not busily working. Her live & her home is full of happy activity.
I met D, her 2nd guest, the day D came to inspect Pat's beautiful home. We all went to friendly dinner girl talk. D explained she had been with a daughter in Phoenix, during college, and love it, and wanted to be in an area she loved and fly with her daughter's airline discounts to see both her daughters and grandchildren, yet enjoy the senior living in Arizona and the weather. D wanted to live alone & frequently asked Pat to accommodate her need to be alone. (ie Pat agreed to go into her own bedroom to talk on her phone to her many telephone calls both from work & friend. + Pat asked her daughter to leave her dog at home when she visited.)
Pat daily works out of her home Great room & leaves by 10am to return between 7-10pm. When Pat returned home midday, D asked about how long it would be before Pat would leave again. Often D went out to return after Pat was scheduled to leave her home again. Clearly, D did not want to be in the house when Pat was home. Her nature was to be solitary though she did attend a few of the social activities Pat invited her to join. Pat talked to me about how quiet she needed to be in D's presence & I reminded Pat that it is ok for Pat to continue to live her normal routine even w/Airbnb guests in her home. I believe guests should fit into her lifestyle, not visa versa.
Personally, I enjoyed Pat's high energy lifestyle. She & I worked (as I also work on my computer and phone) in the Great room w/never a concern about her many calls & conversations. I cooked my breakfast or lunch & invited her when we didn't go out to eat. Her daughter & small Chihuahua dog & friends came & I joined in or continued my work until I could join in.
D's complaint about Pat needing to rent the whole home out is exactly what D expected. D rarely wanted to leave the home. Personally, I believed I was a guest in Pat's beautiful home & was delighted to have a happy, friend filled environment to be part of whenever I was there. Pat shared every inch of her home, w/out limit, for my enjoyment. I treated her home as HER home yet was happy I did not need to ask to iron my shorts.
I, Pat, am responding to my first guests comments, as I feel my home is extremely clean, (professionally cleaned every 2 weeks), my daughter and her dog visits about once a month, as I visit them often at their home, 1 mile away. I believe Diane needs to rent a home by herself rather than just a bedroom, and shared space. I was gone to work from 10a-8p, each day, including weekends, yet I was irritating to her while I was home, and began taking calls and working from my bedroom, so that I didn't bother her. I was so spoiled by my first guest, closing the blinds in Diane's bedroom from the West side heat of the day, I never gave it a thought, as was making her room comfortable for her so when she returned it wouldn't be too warm. never gave a thought that it would be "invading her private space" just closing the blinds, and I did leave her a note stating that before I left. I learned from that experience and will remedy that mistake with future guests. This response was solicited through an email from Airbnb.
