Thanks for keeping us updated on what's going on with this owner. I also like the idea of bumping up this thread monthly

Been lurking here since your original post (which I found very reasonable) but it wasn't until I realized that you have your own "cronies" and "stalkers" that I realized that you might be a celebrity

Now, where's that Kathryn chick?

Surely, she joined because she's planning a very special trip to the most Magical Place on Earth and just happened to stumble upon your thread

Oh....she won't be back. She let me know that she has no intention of visiting the "DIS CLICK BOARD", ever again.

She also said she questions me looking into the management company and said "who does that? You are renting a week in Fl, not a year". Well Kathryn, I DO and so do lots of others on this boards. We all know who the good and bad management companies are. It is called doing your research.

Must be because Kathryn doesn't need references as she is Psychic! She was even able to review her stay that occurred after yours before hers was finished! She's crazy good, that one

Joking aside: I am sorry this has happened to you Connerlevismom. It has to be just a little concerning that "Kathryn" really does seem to be doing a little internet stalking and that's just plain creepy. BE cautious! Remember, she has some of your very personal information.

I know and honestly, that does worry me a bit. I would not put it past her to do anything at this point. She has shown herself to be a bit crazed.

I'd definitely look into what avenues you have to report harassment through tripadvisor, and any sites such as home away the property is listed on. There's also a WH Facebook page with a recommendations section- I'd let folks there know as well.

I was intrigued by the title of this thread and just read the whole thing...and I have to say, as much as I hate this situation for you, OP - "Kathryn's" entrance made it hilarious! I will happily be one of your cronies...

Here's hoping this owner can be at least put out of business due to negative reviews! Have you looked into the BBB? Not sure if they deal with private home rentals or not but I figure it's worth a shot. Go through every avenue possible to report this crazy woman.

Wow. I don't know about the OP, but I don't want the owner to be put out of business. She needs to change the way she deals with customers, but I wouldn't want someone to lose their rental home because of a negative review. That's really over the top IMO.

I wouldn't say 'lose her rental home' but I would hope she either realizes she can't lie to and stalk customers, or gets out of the business altogether.

I don't want to put her out of business, I am just hoping to warn others about her behavior. If she goes out of business because this is how she deals with anyone that has a slight problem with her rental, than that is on her. But I did not start this thread to put her out of business I just started it to ask for some advice on her rental. It turned ugly because of her behavior towards me.

I will say that either her (or her friend) have just made things 100% worse for her by showing up all over the internet to harass me. Like I said, should have left well enough alone. One bad review won't kill your business, but showing up and attacking someone willl.

I would hope that she will change the way she deals with people, but I doubt it. I saw that I was not the only person she threatened to sue, so it seems to me this is just her personality and maybe this kind of business is just not for her.

I don't appreciate being called the guest from hell, someone who gets paid to write bad reviews and telling me that you hope I sleep well at night because I clearly got what I wanted out of this review, putting her out of business. THAT IMO, is completely over the top and unreasonable. But, again it just shows everyone what kind of person she is. She forgets that I also rented 3 other homes at the same time and had no issues with any of them or their owners and wrote great reviews for them.

Hopefully she (or "Kathryn") learned their lesson and I never hear from either of them again. Unfortunately, something tells me this is not over.

My understanding is libel law is different in the UK... the burden of proof is on the defendant to show they weren't lying. So the owner may very well think she has a case - of course in the US, she does not.

Either way, she's not conducting herself very professionally.

The irony being that if that's the case, since her posts are likely made from England, (though here it says she's in Canada, the same username posts from Cornwall, England on tripadvisor) it's possible that OP could sue her for libel. Not that I recommend that, it's just ironic.

Her TripAdvisor posts indicate she is from Cornwall, Canada. Its a small city in eastern Ontario, about an hour and a half from Ottawa.

Not to say that's where she's actually from........but there is a Cornwall in Canada.

My mistake...I think of Cornwall as England.
