Virginie was a difficult guest. She began frantically texting me late at night when my phone is in sleep mode, then in the morning demanding early check in on a day when it was not convenient or possible. Check in is 4 pm but she insisted at 10 am that I allow her to come over right now. As she had a car w a trunk this was not a necessity. She had zero appreciation for my day or workload, it was her way or a threat of a bad review or cancellation. These manipulative tactics finally worked and I let her bring over her things at 1pm, although I had a doctor appointment I was late for. She still trashed me in her review. She doesn't understand that I accommodated her hours before our arrangements were set and that her own intimidating tactics are what turned me off from wanting to engage with her. I performed my host duties 100%, and made allowances beyond that, on a very busy day, but she's determined to make me out to be- what? Greedy? Phony? Impolite??
I was very kind and left her 5 stars although this was not my assessment because I'm none of those things, I'm constantly trying to accommodate guests in spite of their unrealistic demands. Hosts have a life! I am living mine everyday while accommodating travelers. It ain't always easy.
