On June 17, the guest, surprised by all the attention her post received, shared an update video about what happened after her experience.

Lu explained that a representative of Airbnb’s management team contacted her and “offered her support.”

“I didn’t feel like I needed a refund or anything like that. I offered what I thought might be helpful suggestions, but I received no response, which I consider unprofessional,” he said.

He then mentioned “themes” of the comments he received, including the topic of “common courtesy,” which many brought up in response to their annoyance with housework.

“At an Airbnb, it’s really a business transaction where the logistics of their shift is a business logistics issue for them, and not a courtesy issue for the guests who pay to be there,” Lu said.

Lu confirmed that she “read the entire list” because she didn’t “want to do manual labor” during her vacation with her husband and two children.

She also posted screenshots of the ad, including her receipt for $1,329.79 for the two-night stay.

‘This is ridiculous, why are you paying a “cleaning fee” for what? You did all the cleaning! They should at least send you that part,” wrote another.

Another person commented: ‘I wouldn’t do anything. It just came out.’

While many agreed with Lu’s stance on the situation, others were less sympathetic.

‘Why wouldn’t you wash the dishes? I always clean up after myself and leave the place better than when I found it. “It’s courtesy,” someone said.

‘Most Airbnbs ask you to throw all the towels in the washing machine and turn it on because the washing takes more than 2 hours and they want the next guest to do it. Seems reasonable to me,” another person wrote.

It’s unclear exactly why this occurred, but Lu told a commenter that the rental was located near Lincoln City, a coastal city in Oregon.
