A guest reserved my guest house from Aug 16 to Aug 26 , 2020 with non-refundable payment method. on August 17, a guest had to leave early due to car broken, but they want full refund, so took pictures for tiled ceiling and plastic-steel windows frame.there are some black color as old sealer and dust. he call it as black mold and thread me using rude words. I explained with him and would like to deep clean, but guest did not listen to me and left second day afternoon. then send request for full refund. I reported to AIrbnb representative right way, she told me I don't have to refund due to guest chose non-refundable method to take advantage of extra 10% off.
after I got email from Airbnb resolution center about this guest request, I called Airbnb case manager, she confirmed, it is my right to make refund or not.
A month later, I got another case manager-Amit’s email again, he totally stand with the horrible guest and charged me back $940 from my account. did not listen to me and did not have any professional proof.
It is unbelievable! Airbnb blocked my property for 10 days, cause me lost $940 revenue, and I have to suffer horrible guest bullying and no one can protect innocent host.
Such a nightmare with Airbnb!
Who I can reach out to fight against the second case manager decision?
Thank you in advance who can help me.
The non-refundable option applies only when the guests cancels before check-in
So IMHO it was not true what the firsts CS rep told you, as the guest has already checked-in
So the normal procedures for refund apply if there is any trouble.
But as you explained, Airbnb did not see any serious trouble and left it to you if you want ed to give some refund.
It is rather strange a month after the case considered to be closed, Airbnb comes up with a different story. I think you should be at least informed about what have lead to this change of mind.
"..., I called Airbnb case manager, ...".
The request from Airbnb was a text, so should have been the method of your answer. To me, calling Airbnb and opening a Pandora's Box has about the same level of risk.
