The experience that I and Tobe had was unfortunate and if you read my reviews I have never had any problems with other guests.
If anything my reviews show that my place is so clean and well kept that most people claim they have never been in a cleaner home than mine.
The first incident occurred when I received two complaints from my next door neighbours about loud music being heard coming from my condo when Tobe was there and I was away working for the day. Her claim of not using my stereo system was not something I heard myself but two tenants in the building who were annoyed at the loud noise. When I returned home I did notice that my CD player was open and had indeed been used even thought Tobe claimed not to have used it!
#2 incident, Etobicoke city bylaws indicate that the temperature in a unit should be maintained at 21 degrees celsius during the colder times of year. My HVAC system is set at 22 Degrees and I came home to find that Tobe had turned my HVAC up to 30 Degrees Celsius.
Each day that I saw Tobe I asked her if everything was OK with the place and she said yes everything was fine!
#3 incident, I was away for two days and when I came home I found the guest bathroom door locked and I wanted to check it and make sure everything was fine that there was no water left on the floors. I called my boyfriend to see if he had put a lock on the bathroom door and he told me, no it already has a child lock on it which means you can lock it from the inside but also unlock it from the outside by using a coin if needed. I left it at that time and when Tobe returned later that night she called complaining that the bathroom door was locked and I had to come back to open it for her.
Tobe had checked in at my place early in the morning and according to Airbnb she was required to check out by that same time on the her last day. I asked Tobe the night before she was leaving if I could get the keys back that night because I didn't want to have to deal with her in the morning. She got annoyed at this and threw the keys at me and stomped her feet as she went back into her room!
That same night she turned the heat up again even after our previous conversation regarding the temperature.
As for Tobe's comments about our conversation regarding jobs here in Canada, she and I were talking about how hard it was finding work here and that I was going back to school to upgrade my skills. I myself am an immigrant to Canada as well, and that many Canadians are immigrants. We all face the same challenges and we all have to over come those challenges.
At no point did I disparage anyone or any say anything that could be misrepresented as bigotry.
As for my not welcoming her to Canada, how was I to know that she was a new immigrant to Canada when we never had a conversation about that topic?
If Tobe was so unhappy about my place and my behaviour she could have simply contacted Airbnb and requested another accommodation here in Toronto, which she did not do.
I myself was put in the position of having to contact Airbnb during Tobe's stay to enquire about my obligations and rights as a host because of the situations that were arising between us.
A very unfortunate experience all the way around, and one that could have easily been avoided if the proper respect and kindness had been demonstrated towards staying in another persons home!
