I will be hosting a group of friends in two months. The one who made a reservation sent me a message few days ago, asking whether it would be possible to add an extra bed and if I think it would be too crowded for them (they also bring a dog). So, she didn’t even ask directly whether they can bring an extra person, but whether they can all fit, which frankly, does not interest me much.
I thanked her for informing me about it and replied to her that, as stated in our house rules and the description, the maximum number of people we can host is 3, so it would not be possible to host an extra person in any case. I also added that I really think it would be too crowded anyway as the apartment is only about 40 sqm large. I also asked her whether it would be possible for the extra person to find accommodation nearby, in order to solicit some sort of response.
She hasn’t replied since, and I’m starting to worry that they will either try to weasel out of the reservation, or sneak in the extra person. Or this extra person will officially stay somewhere else, but hang out at our place all the time. What should I do? Try to communicate further? Cancel? Am I exaggerating and they accepted my answer, but didn’t find it necessary to reply?
