I had a Request for 4 nights from a small group. I responded immediately with some terms and conditions and questions. The guest never responded. The Request expired. Airbnb blocks my calendar on those dates and basically blames the host for not responding even though the ball was totally on the guest. I’m was waiting to hear back from THEM!
If you only host on ABB. No big deal. Go to your calendar and ‘unblock’ the dates. But because I am connected through an API. The unblock tool is not available in the ABB calendar. Hmm…
I did find a work around. Block the dates in my software, wait until ABB receives the blocks, then unblock again, and viola, ABB calendar open again.
So, all this is just to vent… Come on ABB! I make you $25k/year and you micromanage me to DEATH!! Just let me run the show!
- Decline within 24 hours or get blocked unnecessarily. (must keep harassing guest until they do/don’t respond)
- Don’t forget to unblock your calendar if you accidentally let requests expire.
- Use block/unblock hack to unblock if connected via API.
