When we were in New York, we used Airbnb to rent an apartment for over a week. Online the apartment looked great. In the pictures it looked clean, modern and like it had quite a bit of room (for Manhattan).
We were very excited about staying there for an extended period of time. We booked the place about two months in advance. We were fantasizing about our great place in New York for several months, building it up in our minds.
The day we showed up to the apartment was a disaster.
When we got there, the apartment looked a lot different than the pictures online. It wasn’t clean. It didn’t have a lot of room. It wasn’t modern and had older looking appliances and furnishings. We had been apartment catfish’d
Not only that. The woman renting the place told us that if anyone knocked on the door to pretend we were her friends visiting town. Oh and she’d be stopping by for hours at a time during the day.
She went on to tell us she wasn’t supposed to be renting out her apartment. She could get in trouble if people knew she was renting it out, so we couldn’t let anyone know this. She had to be there during the day so that people believed she lived there.
Wow. Months of dreams of luxury New York living down the drain.
We quickly got out of there and got a refund. We chose to stay at the New York Marriott Marquis last minute because we knew what we were getting there. We went on to have a great New York visit, but it started off bad.
