Suffice to say this is one booking that I truly regret accepting.
I did send Conely the picture as proof of the damages (door panel was splintered off the draw at the screw) with related costs which the deposit of R1000 didn't cover not to mention the inconvenience. If I am judged as being duplicitous what is he when he books the premises when the rules clearly stated "for non smokers only" and "no smoking permitted anywhere on premises" which his guests blatantly ignored coupled with the despicable condition the place was left in?
Also sad that my very valid concerns for their safety, in a city where drug and alcohol related crime due to high unemployment is a huge problem, is also misconstrued as a prejudice towards poor people.
This hosting experience has seriously tainted my faith in humanity and I will in future, if ever again, only host close friends and people I know that I can trust to look after and treat my place with respect.
