We stayed with John for a month. The room was clean with plenty of storage. We had access to all the utilities and the kitchen. John also allowed us to use plastic tubs to store food and plenty of fridge space. The rest of the house was tidy but the cleanliness could have been ma…

Response from John:
I have always looked upon airbnb more as a family rather than an hotel where there is seldom anything more than a polite reply to any questions. When in business I stayed in many motels and hotels and found them impersonal so when I joined airbnb as a host I decided to be different. Looks like this approach doesn't suit everyone and this is the first comment I recall of this nature As Aumee indicated there are former guests whom I still see occasionally. I will be more observant in the future

Hi Feng, Thanks for the recommendation and appreciate the personal comments which I will learn from. I was careful not to talk about the tea ceremony as didn't know if you wanted that to be widely known. Very good luck John

Try to find another place. Cleanliness is poor. Me and my girlfriend had to clean the bathroom and the bedroom, as they were filthy with dust, spiders and little bugs If he messes with his food and his clothes without permission, do not worry about him being normal. According to …

Gustavo- I agree that there was some dust under the bed but the rest of the room had been vacuumed the day before but not under the bed. As to the bathroom and toilet you exaggerate. They were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected including the floor the day before you arrived but I may have missed a spider on the wall. I provided a properly made bed with clean sheets etc but you decided to use your own bedding. I had not problem with this but I was puzzled. You did tell me later that Brazilians have a cleaning fetish As to meddling with your food and clothes here are the facts. This is a share house where we share some facilities and you need to consider others (in this case me) that I may need to use the shared items eg cooking utensils You left food in a cooking pot on the stove for some 12 hours. I wanted to use that particular cooking pot so I carefully put your cold cooked rice into a plastic container I provided, placed it in the refrigerator and advised Ingrid where I had put it. You then abused me for touching your food. As to touching your clothes you were very inconsiderate and left the clothes on the indoor clothes drier for three and four days at a time so I had no option but to remove them but had placed them in a neat pile for you to collect. Maybe what you need is a place of your own as a shared accommodation does not appear to suit your way of living
