This experience got off to a rocky. We were flying in from out of town, due in rather late to begin with. This fact was known from the very beginning to our host that we wouldn't be arriving until 11:30pm. I was upfront and transparent about this fact. Turned out, for reasons beyond our control, the flight was delayed a few hours AND diverted to another airport. We ended up not getting in until 3am! Back to our host. As I was getting information regarding our delay from the airline, I was keeping her informed every step of the way. At this point, our host is becoming agitated that we were coming in so late, and began intimating that we were going to possibly find other accommodations! Can you believe this! We were the ones sitting in an airport with our children dealing with this difficult situation, and now my host is telling me this is causing a problem for her!! Turns out, she had plans to go away that weekend, and was going to leave once we got there (at the regularly scheduled time). Now her weekend was being affected due to circumstances beyond anyone's control! I have many many issues with how she handled this situation, however I will stick with the key issue, she accepted this reservation knowing we were coming in late to begin with, if this was potentially going to cause her an issue, she should have NEVER accepted this booking in the first place! I am an airbnb host myself, and I would have never made a guest feel the way she made me feel in that airport as she was becoming agitated that this situation was affecting HER! As an airbnb host, one does whatever needs to be done to accommodate a guest, once one accepts the reservation period! Again, I was transparent regarding this booking from the very beginning.
With the damage already inflicted, our host ended up canceling her plans (however she said because of potential rain)! Well I suppose I should be thankful! The space itself is just ok. It is a basement apartment, so very damp. there is no real entrance, one must go through the garage to gain access. She provides basic cereal, milk in a jug, and some juice. She didn't checked in on us, and when we asked for bottle water, none was provided. This host does not take her responsibilities seriously and should reconsider airbnb. Would never stay here again. Oh and there is no air conditioning.
