RENT THIS HOUSE; 'enjoyed, such a nice place to stay' beautiful, spacious' 'wonderful' these are the comments of my renters for THE LAST TEN YEARS, UNTIL NOW. I rented my house to a person against my better judgement. I accepted PayPal for the first time because she said the event was a surprise for her husband. She explained that a check would spoil the surprise. Furthermore she wasn't able to swing the security/deposit. Finally, she convinced me to drop the rental price by $450 for sentimental reasons. I Never suspected that this person would slander me with false accusations after I accepted her personal appeals regarding her situation. Yes, SHE chewed me up, spit me out and SINCERELY WANTS to KILL my reputation, why?
On Friday early afternoon the whole of her group arrived to a fully operating house. Saturday late afternoon the water stopped running. This is when SHE AND HER HUSBAND ARRIVED.
I immediately contacted a highly regarded well drilling and maintenance company, whom arrived at my home promptly. The problem could have been solved in a matter of hours. But efforts getting to the pump failed because, it was buried under months of ice and snow.
I immediately arranged full access to my neighboring health club (located less than 200 yards from my front door) with indoor heated olympic pool, spa facilities, jacuzzi etc. for the entire group, witch they accepted. This was my sincere effort to ease the burden on them.
In the morning heavy equipment was brought in to dig out and access the well and diagnose and fix the issue. Simultaneously a plumbing company and a master electrician were on site trying to fix the issue as well.
All three contractors collective efforts was a very a costly weekend emergency. But, I knew my guests comfort to be top priority. The three separate contractors assured me the issue could be diagnosed and fixed that day. Much to my dismay it wasn't to be that day. The problem was fixed the next morning.
In good faith I offered them an extended stay for no charge. Mt Snow Resort had better then ever prime time mid winter conditions. They declined.
In resolution I mailed her a letter of apology and a check sum of $1,000.00 for the compensation, with the understanding, cashing it was the full settlement. But, in spite top of all my decent offers, this person demanded a full refund for the nights they occupied my home in exchange for NOT posting a 'SCATHING' review. This was BLACKMAIL. This person also contacted Paypal to get refund money from me. Paypal DENIED their claims and sided with me. I did and do sincerely understand the inconvenience they endured but, they did stay and use my home fully while enjoying the epic but frigid skiing Mount Snow resort had that weekend. T
Things happen to any one at any time, but, to Blackmail me and defame me is utterly illegal and just wrong.
YES, I am WOUNDED But not dying. Vermont is wonderful, MY HOUSE IS A HAPPY HOUSE and Running well.
Call me, You'll be glad, I assure you.
