Well, there is a fairly long thread on the CC full of guests railing against the split-stay feature, and the fact that there is no way to turn it off. They hate it. No way they want to pack up and move to another listing in the same area in the middle of their stay dates.
That isn’t good for business, except perhaps in the very specific example you give.
Yes, and then these guests think because Airbnb suggested it, they can check in to the other place at 10 AM
We are checking out of our current Airbnb and check in to yours on Monday. They have been booked as a combined stay, so will check in at 9 AM so that we can drop our luggage and go do our activities for the day.
Split stays would be more headache for me as Airbnb puts the burden of managing check in check out expectations on the hosts for the split stays.
I think they always did but with the split stay feature they feel even more entitled because the host offered the split stay… they think the host opted in but AFAIK there is no way to opt out of split stays.
