Update, I sent him a deadline. His reply was an apology and excusing it because I didn’t explain how Airnb works to him! Now, he’s going to keep the booking. Here is my response.
Thank you for your apology. In future, take the time to read what you are paying for and the cancellation policies.
It’s not my job to explain Airnb to you, it’s yours and there are many resources you can use. I set my policy to strict as I have a very short season when there is interest, people also plan ahead, so if they had wanted my place, but it was booked, they have gone elsewhere. Yes, I can cancel a booking, but then I’m subject to penalties. Why should I take the burden of your poor planning?
Your behaviour has been troublesome. I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and give you a second chance.
I expect you to treat my home and myself with respect, as if I was your parent or grandparent. If you or your group cause me any distress, break rules, or cause damage, I will not hesitate to have Airnb cancel your stay, with no refund. There will be no excuses accepted, one incident and you are out. Airnb is based on mutual respect and trust. You have caused me considerable distress with your accusations of dishonesty.
If you wish to change the number of guests go to the app and enter the new number. If you need help, contact Airnb.
