Looking for a listing to stay as a guest in Sydney Australia and I find this brand new host, entire profile says ‘I’m a nice dude’…multiple photos in listing of the TV (seems to be a central selling point!). Bizarre in city apartment in one of the worlds best cities.
Anyway the image (in every shot) on the TV really bothers me. As a result I didn’t book.
Would you message him and say so or just let him deal with the obvious consequences. I find it weird someone so stupid would have ‘no parties’ as a house rule when it seems this is exactly the clientele it would attract.
I had a potential guest with profile picture of him with a gun. I declined his request. No I didnt feel obligated to tell him. I appreciate the insight into people/homes and don’t want them to change it. It just lets me know.
The photo doesn’t bother me in terms of reporting it or saying anything to him. I wouldn’t book the place though. He is either trying to attract a certain kind of guest (Presidents and movie producers come to mind) or is clueless.
It’s weird! I wouldn’t book, knowing what he’s probably been up to on that couch. And it’s just strange that someone thinks we all want to know what he’s watching on tv. It’s similar to when you see photos of bathrooms and the toilet seat is up
I am with you on this. This sends out a signal that I don’t want to receive. Some times people are clueless, but this seems very much in your face. Think I would tell him why I was not booking, but that is just me. I also tell mangers when their bathrooms are dirty.

The Airbnb murder is in my city, it’s in a very fancy suburb, Poole are making the joke (murder is not funny obviously) that East Brighton is now the ‘most dangerous part of town’ because people from that suburb are notorious as being super snobby.
