Many people are accompanied with a guest & there is never an issue. I usually invite them to stay for a cuppa & a chat. But I have never had an uninvited stranger come into my home & help themselves to my fridge, walk into my private bedroom & enter rooms that are off limits. I find this very rude. The guest is Allens girlfriend who told me she will be here everyday to cook & work on CVs & spend as much time with Allen as possible, as her landlord wouldn't allow him at her own residence. I said this would be an issue as laid out in the house rules. They proceeded to ask for a refund & I referred them back to ABNB.
Allen didn't read the house rules before booking online so I asked him to read the print out in his room. It also states do not hang wet washing in the room to dry as it creates condensation & damp leading to mould. I stopped Allen from doing this.
Final straw was coming home after work to an unsecure home & doors left unlocked & open with smoke billowing out the house. I panicked thinking my house was on fire & he was nowhere to be found. Allen thought it was OK to do this without communicating to me & laughed about it.
I'm also offended by the allegation of fleas. What Allen showed me appeared to be from a sandfly or mosquito. I have hardwood floors throughout the house & there is no carpet. There is a mat in his bedroom, the lounge & the dining room, There are no pets that live on the premises & I have never had a problem with fleas in my home.
Storing food in the room, wearing dirty shoes in the house, standing on the toilet seat, leaving a horrible mess in the toilet, not cleaning the bathroom or kitchen after use, slamming doors at 3am etc etc is not my standard of living & find it abusive & disrespectful.
All rules were broken & it became unsafe to have Allen in my home alone. When I was at work I would worry about the safety of my house. When he vacated he left his room in a mess with so much rubbish & left over food, as well as causing damage to the windows.
Allen is the first bad experience I've had resulting in me asking a guest to vacate my home. I extended him 1 week to find elsewhere & consider that extremely lenient after what he had done.
Not reading & abiding by the rules is a poor excuse for bad behaviour Allen. They are a transparent guideline of expectations for both host & guest. If my standard of living is not what your use to you shouldn't have booked my room. I refuse to live in a pigsty & wish you well with the rest of your stay, as long as it is not here.
