We recently had a guest show up to tour the property one month in
advance. They didn't let us know they were coming and proceeded to walk
around our home and onto our covered dock. We had other guests staying
in our home at the time and were taken by surp...
I have noticed that some guests do not sleep between the sheets. Instead
they sleep between the top sheet and the bedspread. Can anyone shed some
light on this. I have replaced my original bedspreads (dry clean only)

Well, we had our last guests this week. Los Angeles has made it illegal
to have an Airbnb out of any space that is not your primary residence.

enquired in September, asking for a 2 night booking - but 12 months
later - in the following year. We wrote a ...
I have written about this before in different contexts, but it
continually happens, and with 33 rooms, I host here, it becomes a
significant loss of revenue.Guest reservations are insured against our
revenue if the guest has an extenuating circumstance, w...
It is very frustrating that an interested person can ask a simple
question, you can answer it from your dashboard, but unless you
