In 2 years of hosting almost 900ppl on 2 home rental sites, Gabriel was my FIRST and only low review. THAT ALONE SPEAKS VOLUMES. Also note how he blames AirBnB, which means what? They saw him for the fraud that he is. SMH. Moving on.
My Review of Him:
This guy is a class act. To all you hosts who have been doing this long enough that you can detect when someone is going to be coming to your home being a headache and a nuisance, this guy is DEFFFinitely 1 of those || Prior to arrival, he tried to bully me not once, not twice but THREE times into letting him check in a couple hours earlier... We all know that gap is necessary for us to turn over the linen, clean, & in my case restock groceries since I offer breakfast. I explained that to him, & just as I guessed, he STILL showed up early. I've let him in at the earliest check in time, gave him and his brother a tour, and they were HAPPY. I told them I would be in the downstairs apartment so call me if they need anything... What does he do instead??? 5 hours later, I get a text saying he checked out, wants a full refund, & showed me pictures of an EMPTY garbage can, 2 dustpiles I had swept up, a pic of my rustic Mexican hammered sink, & an area of the hardwoods where plaster is ingrained in the wood due to having a sucky contractor put up a wall there. Maybe he's never seen high-end things so he doesn't realize that is the style of the sink/ that it will appear tarnished even when clean. He demands a full refund based on those 4 pictures...... Thankfully, it was VERY clear that the pics were ridiculous & he could have simply called me from downstairs to move the 2 dust piles I must have forgotten since he was busy interrupting me cleaning so he can check in a couple hours early! || Also, his kids came running into the house throwing snowballs INSIDE the house on my $7,000 hardwood floors & they are a tad bit noisier than the average kid (I say this as someone who has owned daycare centerSSS back home). || When a bully can't get their way, what do they do? They start other types of problems. I was about to offer him a $100 credit because of the 2 dustpiles I forgot & to smooth things over but the maliciousness in his communications, his attempts to lie and vilify me WHEN I AM A 4.5 STAR RATED HOST made me completely scratch that option........ You can have him in your home if you'd like but be prepared for an abrasive swindler who doesn't listen and is dishonest as all heck. Your choice.
