I am puzzled by the last paragraph of Mark's review and it does sound harsh. I must say it was unexpected. It took me a while to process it and I decided to write a response.
A few times Mark asked me if I could take his old clothes and drop them at donation somewhere, and I said I could not do it this time. I also have my limitations, and I also do get tired. Ofter times Guests leave things in their rooms or in the kitchen and I have to sort it and find a way to responsibly dispose of it. It is a job but I still do it. I ask guests and tenants to be aware about their trash and to keep in mind our environment. If stuff can be donated, please drop it off at the clothes bin at the other end of Stop and Shop, just steps from the house. Mark said he does not shop there and did not want to walk that direction just to drop off old clothes. He expected me to do it, and I said not, and he punished me with this review. Also, at some point, Mark left his unwanted almost new suitcase in the kitchen BEFORE he asked me if it was OK, and if not, he would put it by the trash in hopes somebody may take it. I agreed to take it and find a new home for it. It is still here.
About amenities... the list can change according to what can be possible to offer at the time. Mark gave an advice to eat at a restaurant while himself, he was using the kitchen every day to microwave his dinner from Trader Joe's. Mark never said he felt any limitations at this time or any other time when he lived here, and we talked every evening about Airbnb and other things. He said he liked the rules because he also felt protected by them because in other places, some guests could do something unusual and weird, and other guests suffered while host did nothing. By the way, a refrigerator is available as well. So is utensils, glasses and plates. So I am really unsure why Mark had to write things this way as if it's a warning of some kind.
About the sentence "As long as you keep to yourself" is absolutely not true. Mark got plenty of chit-chatting with me. But he probably felt blocked out by another guest who lived here at the same time. She told me that she did not feel comfortable being next to Mark because he was wearing only his undergarments and he walked with bear feet. I can understand why it did not feel right to her. From what I know, in Japan, those common norms exist so it is comfortable for everyone at any time. We live in a mixed gender house here and we are not close family members where dress code can be loose. I think it would be respectful for everyone to wear more appropriate At-Home clothes and cover up their feet.
I am sorry that Mark felt like he had to emphasize things that you did not like in your review while those things are already mentioned in room description, house rules, and list of amenities.
