    It really is scary that an owner would go this far to harrass a renter. I think I do plan to keep this thing bumped so that people can see what the owner is really like.

    Hmmmm the owner also told me that she was there right before me. This is when she pretty much called me a liar and that there was NO WAY that I was seeing was I was seeing because she was just there and cleaned the house herself. So strange that "Kathryn" stayed there right around the same time!:lmao:

    Well - at least I can warn others about it. And they don't even just have to take my word for it anymore. They can see for themselves!:)

    Nice catch!

    Was just looking through my trip advisor review and someone else posted that the owner threatened to sue them too. Looks like this is not an isolated incident with her.:sad2:

    Wow...just WOW!!! :scared1: It's so obvious that Kathryn is the owner or a friend of hers. Too many coincidences.

    OP I really appreciate you taking the time to post your review and all of the drama that followed. We travel to WDW every year, usually with extended family, stay at WH and I'm in charge of everyone's accomodations because we've been there so often. Knowing which owners to stay away from is a HUGE plus in my book.

    OMG - this is almost comical now. I just get a PM on Trip Advisor from "Kathyrn" personally attacking me and telling me that she hopes I sleep well at night. ***? You got a bad review, get the hell over it and stop acting like a crazy person. My god!

    BTW - she also called all of you on the DIS my cronies. I am so important that I have cronies. YAY ME!:lmao:

    I would send Tripadvisor a copy of the owner's last communication. She sounds like a real nut:scared1:

    I have been following this thread for a while because it was just so darn entertaining, BUT, OMG - it just got incredibly wild. Actually, the owner and "Kathryn" frighten me more than a little. :scared:

    Thanks for keeping us updated on what's going on with this owner. I also like the idea of bumping up this thread monthly :thumbsup2

    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:confused3

    Now, where's that Kathryn chick? popcorn::

    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:thumbsup2

    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::yes::

    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... :lmao:

    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.
