We believe that Soraya and her boyfriend are nice and responsible guests. The challenge was that a few individuals of the 11 member guest party consumed too much alcohol and were slightly rowdy at the Lodge. In fairness, Soraya and the guests did leave DEMIGOD Lodge in excellent condition. Soraya is also a very good communicator and a lovely professional. We would gladly rent to Soraya again.
Other Comments: Unfortunately, the "partying guests" who consumed too much alcohol were too loud for some of the DEMIGOD Condo guests who did not appreciate the spirited group. The Condo guests knew that they had a group staying above them in the Lodge for Oktoberfest, yet the few inconsiderate guests should have been more respectful after 11pm.
Yes, it was Oktoberfest in Leavenworth, WA; however, the few referenced guests were somewhat inconsiderate to others staying at the property. This required the Founders to manage and invest significant time resolving a difficult situation along with the DEMIGOD Lodge property managers.
DEMIGOD Lodge is part of DIGIVATIONS CAMP DEMIGOD INSTITUTE, a 501c3, non-profit educational organization which also operates Innovation & Literary Camp DEMIGOD, (Website hidden by Airbnb) In this regard, while we are glad to accommodate guests who want to enjoy themselves, we do not find it desirable to have rowdy drinkers at the property. DEMIGOD Lodge's, DEMIGOD Condo's and DEMIGOD Chateau's rental proceeds/donations support scholarships and facilities development for children, teens, and professionals. All guests are informed of this information and are expected to follow appropriate house rules. These rules require guests to behave in a respectful manner towards other guests and the property.
If we knew that some of the Lodge guests were going to "party" beyond hours when other guests are residing at the property, we would have either (1) not rented to Soraya's group or (2) charged an event fee and more rent, and not rented the properties separately.
To be clear most of Soraya's guests were nice professionals. Soraya also accepted full responsibility for all her guests behavior. However, the guests whose behaviors were inappropriate should have accepted responsibility.
In the future, I would gladly rent to Soraya and her boyfriend especially since they left DEMIGOD Lodge in excellent condition. Soraya is a very good person who meets her commitments.
