Response from Sita:
Dearest Airbnb guests, I just want to let you know that I have been a Superhost for 4 times in a row. You may check my badge on my profile. This is a fact and a real acknowledgement from Airbnb Inc for all the genuine service I had done for my guests. Hosting is not an easy job. It is even harder on Airbnb as it set a high bar on hospitality. I believe every Airbnb host try hard and do their best to make the most comfortable stay for their guest. So do I. Most of my guest are satisfied and becomes real friends with me. Please do read their honest reviews to avoid misjudgment. Whatever Katrina wrote down is a result of her own negative attitude. Never in my experience of hosting I met a person who is so lacking in appreciation and thanks. No single word of thanks and appreciation comes from her. What happened was she have been rejected by another Airbnb host (not surprising given her complaining attitude) and frantically booked my place to save her nights. Dearest guest, Let me make all issues clear base on fact, not on opinion: - About taking of the shoe: In eastern culture it is normal to expect people to take off shoes before entering someone's house. Why? For us who live up eastern culture, a house is a kind of sanctuary. Taking off shoes also means resting from busy work outside and an expression of respect to the host or the owner of the house who have welcome the guests. Clearly, she misunderstood her own roots (she is Chinese but she seems to feel more western). I provides sleepers for every guests for their comfort to stay . Sleepers are a better option than socks in a warm tropical climate. I have wrote down the rule clearly and in detail on Airbnb web page so everyone can read it and understand a bit of local culture. Isn't it what we are supposed to do when we come to a foreign country? - About A/C and privacy: She didn't read the basic house rule of energy saving. Turning off A/C is a normal thing to do wherever you stay. Nothing wrong with energy saving. A rule, especially a rule to turn off electrical appliances, is what is expected and applied to everyone in the house including myself. Applied to both guest and host, fair enough isn't it? I entered the room with my master key to turn off the A/C and make up the room for her.These are an extra service I do for my guest without they need to ask. She didn't thank me at all as others would normally do. Instead she took this as a violation of privacy. How could that possible? I did explained this to her but she was obviously ignorant about energy saving. I just did what cleaners do in 4 to 5 stars hotel to maintain high standard of service. About the dust and insect: Not true at all. A floor full of dust and insect? Where would she have stood up? It doesn't make sense at all. No host, regardless the structure of their house would let guest feel any discomfort. Please read honest review from other guests regarding cleanness in my property. - About shared house: I have described it clearly on the "Interaction with guest" section on Airbnb website that I live on the opposite wing of the same house. But the guest area is not shared with the host at all. Guests have full privacy because we don't share facilities and I don't intrude guests except on their request. About extra money: Note that she asked for a better and bigger room ; a room upgrade. Just like any room upgrade in hotels, certainly there is price difference that she need to pay, though it is not much. - About the curtain: it is a sheer curtain that still lets sunshine comes through. However, no one can see through it. Proven. And no one walked pass her window during her stay. What she said is absolutely not true. - About location: Difficult to be found by taxi? Fact: taxis pass my house quite often even park and rank in front of my house. The house is situated on the main road. Very easy to spot, for those who are not so ignorant like her. On the day she check out she hired a taxi just off the house gate. What happened was she left the house without asking direction to the house. And Jakarta is a huge mega city. It is normal for taxi driver not to know well all areas, even though they have lived there for 20 years. Every photos and Description on Airbnb webpage tell these fact. I have been and always try to be as honest as possible to my guests yet this time I made a mistake. I made a mistake by opening my door and my heart to this girl who begged to stay because she has been rejected to stay in other Airbnb house. Everything she wrote is untrue. Will I stop hosting? No. Will I welcome you? Yes. Everyone is welcomed at Nilaya. Just do me a little favor: don't bring negativity into Nilaya.
Welcome to the tropical Nilaya! I am Sita, your host for the coming days. I love travelling to less known destinations and see things in its natural-authentic way! I love coffee, rain, and great companions! For me, hosting is a way to offer you what I myself value most when I tra…
