Airbnb headlines: Travel Troubleshooter: Eek! There’s a mouse in my Airbnb. Can I get a refund?

From The Mercury News:

DEAR TRAVEL TROUBLESHOOTER: I rented an Airbnb in Houston for a summer internship. About halfway through our 10-week stay, my husband and I saw a mouse. Then, we discovered mouse holes in sealed food bags inside the pantry.

We left the rental and contacted the host. We requested that he lay some mouse traps and disinfect the unit. We told him we would stay out of the unit for four days to provide him time to do this. He responded that no one else had reported any issues. I again requested him to lay mouse traps, and he said the place was under a Terminix contract and that they would spray.

I escalated the issue to Airbnb. A representative said the host informed them he took care of the issue. He told me he did a walkthrough and everything was as it was before. Airbnb told me that based on my evidence — I didn’t have any pictures of the mouse — they couldn’t refund me any amount. If I canceled, I would receive no refund.

I asked if they wanted me to return to the Airbnb to take better pictures and lay mouse traps. They said if I wanted support, that is what I would need to do.
