Initially I had asked Elisa if she would cancel her reservation because we wanted to go out of town with my boyfriend to join his family for Thanksgiving. But she refused and I didn't want to lose my "super host" status for a year as a result. When Elisa and her boyfriend arrived we were just sitting down to our Thanksgiving dinner and no, it was not our intention to welcome them to our table, although Elisa tried to join us and suggest that she join us when I gave her a plate of our dinner. Her boyfriend refused any food and opted for heating up a can of food that they had brought. Elisa and her boyfriend were here to rest and no discussion was made of them possibly joining us for our alternative Thanksgiving plans. She enjoyed the food. She said it was delicious. There is a small table in the room and I provided an extra chair so that they could have their meal in the room as we wouldn't be done for quite sometime and Elisa and her boyfriend were asking to eat their meal at the table when we would be done with our meal. I think their intentions and me turning Elisa down to join us, offended her, but unless we invite a guest to join us, it is rude to impose yourself on someone's celebration. It was just me and my daughter's friends and that is all we were planning on. She barely spoke any English and her boyfriend made it plain that he not only didn't want a plate of our meal, he wanted no part in joining us as well. The room is a very nice room and so is the bathroom. When we were celebrating we asked if we were disturbing them and they said we were not. When their light was turned off sometime after midnight, it was just three of us home and we made certain that we weren't making noise. As for time of departure, they told me sometime around 10 or 11. We had guests that arrived around 1:30ish am and by that time Elisa and her boyfriend were already asleep. I messaged them so that when they would wake up in the morning and be ready to go they would have the key which the guest put in the dish we have for guest car keys. It is a three car driveway and so it wasn't an option given the hour for the cars to be swapped out. This review of Eliza's seems very childish on her part and frankly I am deeply disappointed.
This is what Elisa wrote according to (Hidden by Airbnb) translate:
Forse perché io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo richiesto la camera per la notte di Thanksgiving ma l'esperienza con la casa di Maria è stata negativa, ora mi spiego: 1. Tempo prima del nostro arrivo Maria ci ha chiesto se potevamo annullare noi la prenotazione perché lei avrebbe voluto mantenere il suo appellativo di "super host" e festeggiare Thanksgiving con la famiglia.. Noi le abbiamo detto che non eravamo disposti a cancellare noi.. Così lei alla fine ci ha ospitati, non adottando però gli standard minimi di ospitalità; 2. Al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato la festa in corso.. Maria ci ha offerto un piatto della loro cena ma ci ha chiesto di andare a mangiare nella nostra camera (al loro tavolo dove ci saremmo potuti sedere anche noi non eravamo graditi?!).. Così io e il mio ragazzo ci siamo messi a mangiare sul comodino della MINI camera a nostra disposizione.. 3. La festa è durata fino a tarda notte impedendoci di dormire.. 4. La mattina abbiamo dovuto bussare alla porta di altri ospiti arrivati dopo di noi per farci dare le chiavi della loro auto perché era stata fatta parcheggiare in modo che la nostra non potesse uscire ( nonostante noi avessimo avvisato Maria della nostra partenza l indomani mattina presto) Unica nota positiva: bagno pulito Non ci siamo affatto sentiti trattati bene.. Dispiace perché da Maria ci aspettavamo altro..
