We're the extra cleaning staff called in last minute, because, instead of 12 guests as contracted in an occupancy of 12, you brought 18, and "forgot" to take out trash or strip beds, brought dogs, smoked indoors and checked out late.

We appreciate that you parked on the lawn rather than finding street space. That you moved a sofa outdoors for more seating. That you rearranged the furniture to suit your needs. That rather than rolling the can to the street on the day requested, you left loose garbage an extra 5 days so the can is full of maggots.

I'm the "equal or greater" replacement property that AirBnB proposed when the owner's of the lovely property you had booked went suddenly incommunicado in the last two weeks leading up to this big holiday week. AirBnB promises to credit your fully paid in advance booking to me. I am on the less fashionable edge of the center—just beyond the outer edge of the center by a few long blocks of rough looking social housing, actually. I look good outside, from the photos, but on closer inspection there are signs or trouble. Inside, the stairway is a disaster, dark and slanty in all directions, and steep; the bare harsh white corkscrew bulbs go on and off, on and off all the time, activated by sensors, and maybe rats. There's an eternally red light at the door at the top of the stairs but that's not our apartment, ours we're relieved to find is the first floor front, the piano nobile, with views from great large windows onto a once middle class street. The principal room has been crudely divided into three parts, and a leftover bit of a corridor made into a kitchen and beside it a bathroom. The furniture is all covered in throws, layers and layers of throws. Not at all what we saw in the photos. The beautiful 19th Century tile floor is entirely loose, just tiles sitting in a bed of old dust and flaked off human skin and worse. Walking across it sounds like stacking heavy china saucers on a shelf. Nothing looks anything like the photos, only the grand windows (with signs not to open or to toy with the locks.) The place has clearly changed hands since the listing photos, and for the worse.

There are a lot of signs everywhere, seemingly third and fourth generation re-copies of signs and instructions, each in its own dirty plastic sleeve. Here's one of the signs from the bathroom, evidently a copy of a sign from an apartment with a shared bathroom. I guess we're lucky we don't have to share bathrooms. It will be a long five days.

I’m the shitty window A/C in the master suite. The rest of the house has zero A/C. It boiling hot in the middle of the summer.

No linens (bed sheets, towels) will be provided. You’ll need to get those separately through a 3 party provider.

All this and more for $3000 a week

When you come back from that late night walk along the beach you and your pal hit the showers. You discover untold pleasures when he shyly joins you in your stall and presents hole. You do your best not to be too noisy out of respect for the family next door playing in their driveway, but the mom & dad give you glaring looks when you walk up the outside stairs wearing only your towels and playing a bit of grabass.
