Two sides to every story, right? I feel that incomplete communication was the issue here. My listing says there is a tenant (me) on the premises with a private entrance and I gave Cheryl my schedule. The Airbnb calendar shows Cheryl’s visit as three nights, not a weekend. I went out for meals and stayed out late, never entering the cabin while my guests were there. Their first night I returned quite late to find every light in the house on and suitcases on top of the bed’s white quilt so I placed the suitcases on less vulnerable surfaces, turned off some lights then went to bed. The second day I went into the kitchen when they were gone to make some tea and it was necessary to deal with a huge pile of dirty dishes in order to use the sink. I did contact Cheryl by phone about so much food in the refrigerator because I thought she might be having a party. She said no, but she had not requested an empty refrigerator nor did she inform me she was bringing an unusually large amount of food.
When one stays at a hotel, a maid comes in to clean. Though I am the property owner and not a maid, it is my job as a host to keep the cabin in order and safe so I wonder why there would be an objection to that. The idea that my guests were sharing the cabin is absurd because I never saw them.
