I hate to say but this was my first and only negative experience with a host. The unit itself was great, could not ask for more! Great location and accommodation, truly. During the stay Helen was attentive and polite, very involved. When we we extending our stay it was alllllllllll sunshine and rainbows. When we left two days early due to the nature of my job - that's when the gloves came off entirely. Somehow, the gutter repairs to the main home occupied by a full time tenant was related to us, as were the routine maintenance requirements for the interior damaged by the a/c unit. Apparently the $1400 we paid in full was not good enough to release $80 for the two nights we didn't stay. Remember, we had zero issues with her giving MORE money through extensions. Our amendment request was met with a rude message talking about how these repairs cost a months worth of rent, so do those repairs. So what? How does that have anything to do with anyone besides the homeowner? Normally I would just charge it to the game and understand that I paid for something up front, unable to be reimbursed. However, Helen went out of her way to very rudely deny a payment consideration equal to less than 7% of what we already paid, hence my comment. She even gave us some lame sob story about not being able to "rent the unit for one night". Please, she blocked out 4 days directly AFTER our stay to address the drywall repairs on the interior which we oh so kindly put up with to allow her convenience of repairs scheduling. That's in addition to the fact that over the next several months, there's like 7 days total of the place being booked. Point is, the host seems petty and greedy when it all boils down. Nothing but smiles when you're giving money and don't you dare amend your request for a shorter stay - you're likely going to get told how expensive lawn care is and how she can't afford to give you money back even though she owns multiple homes. Perhaps you're in the wrong business, Helen.

Response from Helen:
I asked you every week if you needed to change departure date, including earlier or later. You ignored my questions, and airbnb policy clearly states full refund with 5-day cancellation notice. You gave 1 day notice. As compromise, I offered refund for 1 of the 2 days, and I didn't have to as per airbnb rules. Who's the unreasonable greedy one?

Helen's studio/apt in St. Pete's was a perfect spot for my girlfriend and myself these past few days. Helen is easy to communicate with and very respectful both over the phone and in person. I liked how the neighborhood was very quiet and allowed us to have some peaceful nights. Would stay here again if I'm in the area! Thanks, Helen!

Cutest little bungalow! It's cute and cozy just like the pictures. Everything was clean and nice. Perfect for a couple who wants to explore St. Pete! It's only about 20 minutes from the beach.

Great place to stay, just enough room for two people. Very close to everything we wanted to do, especially downtown! Everything was very clean and well stocked, and Helen was very thoughtful and quick to respond to texts. I would definitely recommend here if you're a couple wanting to explore St. Pete!

A beautiful little studio space with desk, closet, full kitchen, stocked bathroom, and a Murphy bed! Also, pretty good location to downtown and beaches. Helen was a great host and even provided us with beach things. Great stay and wonderful host!

I like flowers, golfing and traveling. I've stayed at many hotels and airbnbs, so I have a good basis of comparison for setting high standards at my own rental unit.
