Hailee. Let's put the facts out there. I noticed that you conveniently glossed over the part where you made an incorrect assumption, and then cancelled while standing in the cottage, after asking if there was a/c and then not waiting for a response, but not before using the bathroom, forcing us to pay the cleaner to go back in to clean the bathroom and reset the property. I was a bit surprised that you were trying to insinuate that your party using that bathroom was equal to the place being, "untouched." I would never have left a bathroom used for your check-in, or anyone else's. You didn't even bother to let anyone know you were cancelling and leaving, neither did you give us the opportunity to try to help.
You also omitted the part where you repeatedly messaged the co-host asking for your money back after admitting that you made an incorrect assumption, and then left this scathing review nearly a week later, when we let you know that AirBnB advised us to stand by the cancellation policy. It feels a little like you wanted us to pay you not to leave a poor review, especially when we see here that you are also not telling the truth regarding the weather. You arrived around 6pm on Sept 6th, we know because you sent a message when you walked in. The temperature at that hour was 79 degrees, with a WSW wind at about 16mph, gusting to 23. The low went to 68 that night. This is September, in the northeast, approximately 60 seconds' walk from open ocean. You stated in messages that you are from Orlando, so I'm going to assume that you know a little bit about beaches and water. This is a beach house. There will always be water vapor when you are standing next to millions of gallons of moving salt water. If humidity was a concern, then a cottage this close to the water would never have made you happy.
This suggestion about safety is a little silly. The house, being so close to the ocean, is elevated off the ground, the bedrooms are on the second floor, and we are located in a small fishing village with stunningly low crime and interactive, involved neighbors who help us look out for our guests. You could have shut the downstairs windows overnight, and left the bedrooms even partway open, and the house would have been very cool. Had you stayed, or even read the listing and looked at the images, you would have noted the installed ceiling fan and box fans provided. We had two different departments at AirBnB scrutinize the listing, and we were told that we have all amenities listed properly. The reality is that you either didn't read the listing at all, or you made an assumption. You suggest that it makes sense to you that houses in the northeast list the lack of an amenity that is not standard to this geographical area. You are making yet another assumption that people not from your area would know that things like a/c are standard where you live. If you didn't see what you expected listed, why didn't you ask before booking? A word of advice; when you are booking to stay in areas outside of your own, learn a little about the area first, and assume nothing. Ask questions before you book. We would have loved the chance to help make your stay wonderful.
