That’s weird that insurance only covers guests but no one else’s?
We have a liability insurance for 1 mill. It covers anyone who is on our property in case of accidents. Postman, any contractor and so on. I would definitely review the policy with your agent.
When I traveled with my daughter when she was little, I also left her with a stranger who was a young girl that worked for a hotel during the day as a front desk clerk and made some extra money by babysitting at night.
She wa excellent and we hired her almost every night through our stay. My daughter loved her.
I personally don’t see anything strange that they asked you about babysitter. They hopped it would be someone you know, may be a daughter of a friend who can use some income. If an apartment is in your basement but it separate, it’s still a separate apartment. I just don’t see how it can be a nuisance to you that there is a babysitter watching their kids.
O f course you are not a concierge, but I remembered I stayed in Italy with a host, and rented a room from her in her apartment. That was one of my first Airbnbs and her location was awful , far from subway, there was no Uber then yet.
I had a few days before my friend was arriving and was looking for things to do. It was impossible to get a word out of her. My main question was about transportation and I was trying to get her to tell me how to get around. She was sending me back to Internet to find directions and was so unwilling to help that it left me very frustrated.
I ended up canceling her and moving somewhere closer to center and near metro but I still remember that host and how she was annoyed with me when she had to tell me about local buses
. She was the only one in my experience that acted like that. The rest of the hosts were willing to help with readiness. And left me reviews on how self efficient I am :).
i just don’t see how they are trying to take advantage of you here. They simply asking if you know someone to do the work. For example, if I knew that my friend’s daughter is always looking for a babysitting job, and here I have people who need a babysitter why not to bring them together and make that happen.
In no way I would feel responsible for any other events that follow.
