Thanks for the compliment, Anand. And we suggest that the next time you feel like calling a hosting situation a 'house arrest' kind of situation, please be specific with examples. Here are some examples of why you might have got that feeling:
- Your girlfriend had tried booking our room and we had declined that request after chatting about the check-in/check-out time-related plans that you had. Even then, a day later, you booked our room without revealing that you're the same couple whose booking request we had turned down. You wrote that you will be leaving the house around 11 am and be back in the evening. But once you came home, you said you wanted to stay at home for most of the day while your girlfriend went for work, and your girlfriend asked for house keys even though we had messaged in advance that that won't be possible.
So, next time, please don't mislead another host and assume that they will change their plans to accommodate yours. Your plans didn't change because you were feeling unwell or your meeting got cancelled; you had deliberately conveyed a certain picture to us before booking based on a chat we had had with your girlfriend just so that you can get a 'Yes' from us.
- Also, you left the house doors widely open while going to the building gate for what you called just a few minutes. Next time, you might want to check with a host if it's okay to do that. We only politely requested you not to do that - for security and hygiene reasons.
- For a couple that had access to a room that can be locked and freedom to do as they please and return home by 11 pm based on chats that were had before confirming your booking, it is quite unfair to present your experience in the manner in which you have. That said, we will learn from this experience and try and make our communication even more clearer with future guests.
