I just started out with my Airbnb and put a great deal of money into it I also did the special cleaning for Covid requirements the place is spotless and beautiful!
. My first people brought two large mastiff dogs even when my listing said No Dogs.. I guess I wasn’t clear that I lived on the other side of the house so they were upset I was there and left I refunded their money. I went back and redid my listing to make sure people knew that I lived in the other side of the house .
The next people cancelled because the Kitchentte I installed wasn’t good enough, before they even saw it.
Now I had a person leave because she didn’t like the energy... wants a full refund.. even though she ate the food , spent one night a left the place a mess!
My place is $40/night and $20 cleaning fee. I feel beaten before I’ve gotten started. 😣
Ok, Just an update. So hopeful my next guest would go well. She is stuck at an airport, needs a ride. The airport is 2 hours away. I've been calling rental car people for her and sending her numbers, but no response except for. " If I get someone to bring me close to your home, can you pick me up?" You guys are made of much stronger stalk than me. I applaud you. Oh and she has a little baby with her. Good God!
@Maureen447 Stuck at the airport 2 hours away and needs a ride? How was she planning to get from the airport to your house in the first place? Or did she not even think about that until she arrived? She should call an Uber or something.
Most of my guests come here by bus from the airport. I do offer to pick them up at the bus station, because my place is hard to find the first time, even for the taxi drivers, but the station is only a 5 minute drive from my place.
Hope she turns out not to be demanding and entitled in a whole lot of other ways. Good luck.
Thanks so much...You are so kind Sarah to help me.
She has 5 great 5 stars reviews, so hoping it's just a bumpy start. I hope to post a positive comment next time. I'm really not a complainer. Well, Ok, I really wasn't a complainer before starting my business.. LOL Mimi
I just have to join the conversation to express my admiration for the name of your town - Weed, California. Much better than Boring, Oregon! Though maybe not quite as exciting as Climax, Saskatchewan.
I hope the behaviour of your guests has improved. Good luck!
Incidentally, Head Smashed In is a stunning UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site that preserves and interprets over 6,000 years of Plains buffalo culture. A must-visit if you're ever in southern Alberta.
