Canadians also say "holiday" and Kathryn is from Canada.

I believe that it means someone who finds something to complain about on a vacation (holiday) to get a discount or refund.

Honestly, I prefer the term "vacation varmints".

Katheryn is definitely a friend of the owner. She says as much in her Trip Advisor rebuttal to the OP's complaint post.

Ahhh OK. Well - I am not that, but at least I know what the term means. Could have been worse!

I agree. I don't think she is the owner, but I think she is somone that owner sent after me.

But that means there is not just one crazy person in the mix, there are two!

Ha! A little disturbing right?
Maybe kathryn is the hair and toenail dropper, since she does seem to have access to the home mentioning she had been there after the OP and in September.

LOL Maybe. Could be why she seemed so offended that I said there was pubic hair on the carpet. Most people get grossed out by that - but she did seem very offended by the fact that I said it was there.

I say Kathryn has keys to her friends place and is using it for a crash pad and maybe some extracurricular activites, possibly under the guise of helping out? Shes probably sitting there playing those PS3 games talking to the owner on the phone like "Oh I know can you believe the gall of some people? Don't worry my friend I will go over and fix that microwave up for ya!"

This thread is a gem. Kathryn is just the right kind of looney tune to make threads like this sparkle humor.

Op - sorry for your irritations!!! Hopefully things are dying down for you!

Yes, things are much better. I have not heard from the owner or Kathryn since Kathryn's email attacking me. Hopefully they both learned their lesson but something tells me they did not. I just hope I don't see someone here or elsewhere that has the same issues that I did. It was unfortunate and it makes me shy away from renting again.

IMHO, the "it's not a big deal" argument is nearly always ironic, and never intended to be so. If it's not a big deal, and if $45 is such a paltry sum, then why didn't the owner take care of it and pay it? It's not a big deal for the renter to do it, but it's much too big a hassle for the owner to bother with? Yeah, that's logical.

Really, it doesn't matter how big a deal it is -- the owner has the responsibility to provide what was promised. The renter has no responsibility to provide what the owner promised. Anytime the owner decides they can just hand their responsibility over to the person paying them to do it, it's a big deal. It's not a big deal compared to getting hit by a hurricane, but it's a big deal in the rental world, and owners who keep up that practice tend to end up renting mostly to pals who get big discounts.

Still true that birds of a feather flock together, I guess.

There are no words. Just read this entire post thread but Kathryn's post takes the cake.

So sorry the OP has had so many problems.

I find it funny how she mentions a damaged microwave, is she trying to say not only did OP break it but she rigged it back up so you couldn't notice the glass was no longer in the door!

I writes reviews on TA whether good or bad. I think that nice middle of the road reviews mean more when i travel than bad or great reviews.

Whoever Kathryn190007 is obviously has too much time on her hands if she is stalking OP to see where she is posting reviews at.
