I have hosted families for over three years. Children are the most work because they.....well...they are children. I just recently found out that my listing shows that children under 2 are free. My goodness....the spilled juice on the floors, the fingerprints on my glass doors, extra laundry, diapers in the garbage......all OK "if" I get paid for the extra work but it seems that Airbnb has decided that I should do this work for free? Sadly, the only way that I can stop this free promotion is to change my settings to "unsuitable" for children under 2 and now my listing will not show up when a family is looking to stay somewhere with small children.
Oh well, I had better go and check the other two platforms that I use.
Debbie you have said it perfectly! AIRBNB have forgotten where they would be without Hosts!
I'm not sure how much longer I want to be a Host. And, don't get me started on their ridiculous Call Centres!
@Gillian120 You can edit your amenities to describe any restrictions you might have. For example, I allow some kitchen use, but limited to light cooking. You could restrict washer use to a minimum of 3 days stay.
