I find Nicole's comments offensive, especially since I refrained from leaving my most honest comments about her in my review of her.
Nicole stayed in my home as a GUEST for more than three months. Upon my asking, Nicole confirmed multiple times that she had read and understood my house rules which state: "If you are going to use my things, please treat them in the respectful way that I would (i.e. cleaning your room and all common areas like they were cleaned upon your arrival)." I asked her if she was okay with that, and she said yes, so I allowed her to use my bedding and my linens for almost 100 days, although she was welcome to bring and use her own.
Instead, Nicole left the bedroom she used in a disarray for a majority of the time she was here. She left dirty dishes in the bedroom and kitchen, and failed to clean after herself in the bathrooms, kitchen, and in the common areas. She failed to clean her hair out of the bathroom tub, which has clogged my drain.
The door doesn't have a lock which requires a key to open, only the regular turn lock. And my housekeeper entered her room on a bi-weekly basis, and I only once, to retrieve dirty dishes and clean up.
As far as the home not being "warm," that probably comes from us having a 20 year age difference, and her having a mousy personality. During her three months here, I was not around a lot because of work travel and going to see my family. And she mostly stayed in her bedroom. And one month into her stay, my mother became very ill, then died. Even with all of that, Nicole never showed any compassion or sympathy. Her mother, on the other hand, came twice and I didn't charge any fees for her stay. Her mother was a perfect guest and more like my ideal booking.
Nicole could have checked out, gotten her money back, and left at any time. But she chose to stay, which speaks volumes of how she really felt about the home and the area.
So if you're reading this and you are not the kind of person who can follow house rules, and maintain a clean house, room, kitchen and bathroom, then my home is not the place for you.
