PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN RENTING TO CALLUM. Just refer to his public profile on Airbnb to read about previous owner which also got their property trashed.
Here is a resume of what occured during their stay at our property:
1. Our cleaning lady had to trash 3 bedsheets, the sofa will have to be professionally cleaned due to puke on it. These are the material damages.
2. Extra hours of cleaning for the puke, garbages all over the apartment, smell of smoking... To this the time lost as our cleaning ladies arrived at the regular checkout time (11:00am) and they were still sleeping, unable to walk as they were still totally drunk. It took 1 hour to get them out of the property.
3. The security deposit we ask (300€) is an amount to make the guest responsible: respect neighbours, no party policy, do not damage the property, do not smoke inside... In the case of Callum, they have broken all these rules, added to the material damage. And the neighbours complains can put at risk our touristic licence.
4. I spoke to Callum over the phone. After expressing his apologies for what occurred and the fact they are students so this extra money is valuable to them, I asked him why they did such a mess and why also the previous tenant where they stayed left such a bad review on their public Airbnb profile. If he had behaved correctly, the 300€ security deposit would have not been requested. And I really believe it is fair to teach him respect by taking this security deposit.
