These people are liars and nasty! It was a nightmare for us. Please trust us.
WARNING!!! Do not have this couple stay in your home! Gary has a mental problem and is possibly a scammer. Gary and Merryn are rude, disrespectful racist and aggressive.
Gary and Merryn stayed 4 nights in our home. They didn't follow our house rules (they came 4 hours before check in time without informing us and attacked us by saying it's my fault that they didn't keep my phone number as they left their computer at home) and chose minimum communication with us. They only had one shower in four days they made the house stink and their bathroom stinks with urine. They put our plates and bowls on the floor while they were eating instead of using our dining tables. After they left we found food in their room and on our furnitures.
I normally keep the air con on most of the day and time it during the night in hot summer days. To ensure my guests are comfortable, I also show them how to turn it on and off themselves. I showed Gary and Merryn, how to turn the air conditioner on when they need it. During their stay they have never asked me any questions about it or had any issue with it. They came back from the beach and commented how cool and nice the house was.
I always check my guests if they are happy and if they need any help during their stay.
On the day before they left Gary and Merryn commented everything was good and they had a good stay with us. However, in the morning the day of check out we were woken at 6 am by Gary banging on our bedroom door very loudly. Gary immediately started complaining about everything in our house and threatened us he will rate us low on airbnb and make sure to destroy our reputation. As we tried to see what was wrong , he became very aggressive and started to abuse me about my race, swearing, name calling and physically pushed us with his hands trying to start a fight. We had to stop his aggressive behaviour and called his wife to remove him from our house. His wife Merryn hid in their bedroom silently ignoring his uncontrollable rage, which leads us to believe they are scammers as a team. If it was a genuine mental issue ,Merryn would have intervened.
We have red flaged Gary and reported him on airbnb. We also warned all the hosts that Gary is either a scammer trying to get the stay for free or he has serious mental problems or both.
Even though we are rated low by these bad people, we still believe there are many many good people in the world. Greg and I will keep positive and continue hosting with our open arms for future guests.
Thanks very much.
Huanita and Greg
