LOVELY house with UNPROFESSIONAL host

  • 2 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved the house - it was clean, spacious and gorgeous. But that being said, I would never stay here again because of the host. Woody was very unprofessional and lacked communication.

The house was not ready for us! Woody texted a night before our arrival saying that there was crazy wind in Hawaii and the wind "ruined the pool and back yard, causing cosmetic issues too." He sent a link of another property we can stay at – this house had one less bedroom and bathroom, which was a problem for our group of 7. When I finally got on the phone with him, he kept saying he has no control over the wind. We agreed to stay the first two night at this smaller house until the house is ready for us on the third day in return of a 1-night refund which he promised to pay us in cash. (He later refunded via paypal instead of cash as he didn’t want to pay double tax)

When the time to move into the originally booked house on Day 3 came, he didn’t give us much heads up about the time of the move and etc. had plans to tour the island but not knowing when the move can happen made my holiday very stressful. When we finally made the move to the original house, we saw a housekeeper leaving the house with him. The garbage bin outside was full of trash from the previous renters. The neighbors confirmed that the weather in the area was just fine. I believe Woody double booked our first two nights.

He forgot to leave the gate remote. When I texted him, he literally just texted “come to my house”. We wasted time packing and moving in the middle of our trip then I had to drive ten minutes to get this gate remote.

During booking, we paid the VRBO fee payment directly to the website but saw that he charged it again to us. When I called him out on this, he said it was because there were other Paypal fees he had to pay. That is something he should’ve considered and included in the original payment not something you hide in there. He did refund the double VRBO fee payment later but it’s all stuff you need to keep aware of if you are considering this house.

I’ve rented many vacation homes before and never once had a host who didn’t send any ‘check-in’ instructions prior to the stay. We only had the address. We had to text him for the wifi pw. By the way, he can be only communicated via text, no calls. He can call you but you can't call him!

Owner's Response: Good thing I can hear from this guest is she has to admit our house is beautiful and flawless, from her attitude here, we bet if she can find a little issue, she would try her best the enlarge it. We are super host in airbnb, 99% 5 stars good reviews, we barely host guests from VRBO, since I can't really tell the person who they are here, and worst part you can't review the guest, people didn't stay in your house even can review irresponsibly, cause they are not belong to the community, just like this lady. Every time we had unhappy guest one from thousand we still try to figure out why, since we always did out best, 40knots wind blowed up kailua before this guest came, ruined the pool, backyard and took off some screens, so we reported this to her, sent her pics, offered her options to cancel and get full refund or another house in the same price, meanwhile we offered one day free for the inconvenience. Instead of just cancel the booking by force majeure like most of the hosts would do in this situation. The major difference for this lady with us is she didn't understand sharing economy and probably barely travel, she expected hotel type service, 24/7 service, which we never commit and offer, we just share our beautiful home with self sufficient travelers, we don't babysit our guests. We have a sliding gate normally just for service people, but this lady wanted access that is fine, but when she forgot to take the key, she had to come and get it instead expecting hotel conceige service. Some people come to Hawaii to refresh their soul, and find a true self, somebody just comes here with greed, arrogant , opinions and bad habbits along with them, finally left with these.
