I apologize for the smell of smoke that does in fact come through the vent. My house is a non-smoking house which includes the Airbnb apartment.
Unfortunately my tenant who lives in the separate apartment linked beside my home does smoke.
This is the 1st time I have heard about this smell situation from ALL my guests that have stayed here. There are the kitchen, bathroom & bedroom windows that open which might have helped.
As for the description of my (Website hidden by Airbnb) is in fact an accurate description. I know that this is the 1st time you have used Airbnb which in fact could have been the problem....not familiarizing yourself with the site.
Your booking was in fact for one adult , yourself. Had you have mentioned your niece would be staying as well at time of booking, perhaps the communication between us would have taken a different path.
I've had many couples stay here over the years & they have NEVER complained about the size being too small.
My photo's of my apartment were taken professionally by an Airbnb photographer. The photo's clearly show, there is an oversized bedroom including a table & 4 chairs but No separate living room.
As far as pricing...I have not raised my price of $85 CDN in 4 years. My price is very reasonable, especially in my area for a separate apartment with a complete kitchen/use of laundry facilities, TV/Internet.
Nadar, my suggestion to help you in the future with bookings.....would be to look closely to the listing and also the photo's of the space you might rent. If you have questions You can have a dialogue with the hosts before you book so that you are not surprised upon arrival.
If it's any consolation, I had a similar problem my first time booking in NYC.
I'm sorry the experience wasn't what you expected for your 1st time using Airbnb. Hopefully my explanation will help you for future bookings Nadar.
