You'll find below my feelings towards my staying in Maria's house.
For me, actually, it was a nightmare.
So that's why I didn't understand the previous reviews...
A few things to know if you plan to book Maria's house.
-You won't be able to use the kitchen
So you can not cook, and if you plan (like I did) of staying one month, this will become a very big issue, trust me.
But she let me used the toaster and the coffee maker
So good luck with that to have a proper meal...
-For the fridge, like she said, it was "volontary" (freiwillig) of her
So you are not supposed to use the fridge neither
Good luck again with that
-You better leave the living room when it's 8pm because she's watching TV and she doesn't want to be disturbed.
And this is every day (at least 5 days out of 7)
Well, actually, I admit it was a bit my fault, because I didn't see in her post that the kitchen was crossed out.
But I was fooled in a way, because in the pictures, I saw the kitchen (now she withdrew it, I saw it yesterday) and in her comments she said "garden and pool use possible", so for me it was obvious that at least I would be able to cook (and especially for a long period of staying).
I really don't see why she's hosting people, if we can't at least share the basic stuff in a house (the kitchen for instance)
Besides, we didn't have much conversations, except for blaming me ("You can't cook", "I put your stuff in the corridor since you are not allowed to use the kitchen", "Close the door of your bedroom when you leave"...)
For the end of the story, I decided to leave the place earlier because I couldn't stay any longer.
And she didn't want to pay me back the nights I won't be spending in her house (the rest of the nights) arguing that I received a monthly reduction, so that we need to recalculate I don't know what...
I needed help from the Airbnb's customers support.
Now I realized that she did that ONLY (and ONLY for that) for money.
To put in a nutshell, I'm sorry Maria, but I do NOT recommend you at all, even if I think you may be a nice person...
P.S. : At least the dog is very cute
