I have instant booking turned on and just got a booking from a guests I am not to keen to host.
This is a family with 2 children coming for a wedding in a neighborhood town.
They first inquired if their parents could park an RV in front of my house and while the family would sleep in the apartment, the parents would sleep in the RV. I responded that it may be hard to drive an RV up the narrow gravel road that leads to my property and it may also be difficult to turn it (the driveway dead ends at my property).
I have not heard back from them, and today they just booked. It is unclear if they would risk bringing an RV or not.
They are also bringing a nanny to watch the kids while they are at the wedding, and one of the kids is an infant.
My max occupancy is 4. The family with a nanny would be 5 people. It seems like infants, however, do not count towards max occupancy. Is that true?
I really feel that this group would not be a good fit. First, the RV question rubbed me wrongly - obviously I don’t have any RV hookups so I presume the parents would use the facilities in the apartment. Sorry if I sound petty, but there is a difference is cost if all of them use shower etc.
I also do not believe the apartment is set to host an infant. I do not have cots, no outlet protection, no baby gates…I have a queen bed and a trundle bed so where would the baby sleep?
What is the best way to get out of this booking? I can use “not comfortable” but it seems somewhat lame. I would rather use max occupancy but it looks like the infants do not count? Ugh!
