"I originally booked a home in Las Vegas on an Airbnb with a young couple. I was corresponding with the wife. I was told there were two dogs, who would stay out of my private bedroom. The rest was shared space. That seemed easy enough. When I arrived, there was no female in the house just two men; the one man said his wife was away in the army. Finding it odd she never mentioned she would not be there was my first red flag. The wedding photo did not match the picture of the girl I was talking to via online; another red flag. There were four dogs instead of two, and the two men were particularly abusive towards one of the dogs (when inquiring they acted confused, said it was the wife's dog). It was growing into a very uncomfortable situation," shared a Reddit user.
"He told me I was welcome to use the kitchen at my free will, and handed me a key. Very friendly, but he would often make inappropriate comments to me and I would brush it off. I went to warm up some leftovers my first night and their sink was full of dirty dishes. Not one clean plate to eat my food on, not even silverware. I saved the food in the fridge, but in the three days I was there no one did dishes. I wasn't going to clean someone else's dishes to eat food."
"The final straw was the last night I was there. I was organizing, for my travel day the next day, and getting ready for bed. My door was closed. He knocked on my door, before I could respond he opened the door, shut it behind him, and sat on my bed. I was instantly uncomfortable, he continued with his inappropriate banter. He told me how lonely he was, and what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. How he doesn't know how much longer he should be faithful to his wife. I probably engaged longer in this conversation than I needed to ( I was an advocate for his 'wife'), but eventually, I lost my cool and started to yell at him to leave my room. He left promptly, and apologised (thank god). This was also my first Airbnb experience."
"Needless to say, I will be much more hesitant about shared space homes in the future. Won't scare me away from using the service in the future. Next time I go to Vegas, I'm staying on the strip though."
And this is why I don't do Airbnb, folks.
