My wife and me decided to rent out our home during our vacation in Asia. We rented out our house for 3 weekends. The first guests we’re great; they had a good time and left the house very tidy. The second weekend the renters were two guys. The booking process for this booking already had me a bit suspicious since the payment was rejected at first. The same day however this was resolved.
We moved out antique silverware and jewellry and cash and stored this at my parents. We put all of our clothes and shoes in our walk-in closet.the closet can only be entered from the bedroom or from another door in the hall. Since we do not want guests going through our personal stuff, we locked the door with a doorclamp from the inside so it can’t be opened from the hall, and we closed the door to the closet and put our top mattrass against it so it Would be impossible to look into the closet (the Doors have glass in it so normally you can look inside). We explicitly told all our guests that access to the closet and the other room was prohibited. This was also in our house manual.
Our cleaning lady just got back to us and told us that indeed the guests have been in our walk-in closet and the other room. She send us the pics to prove it.
The idea of having our beautiful home left to strangers who went into rooms where they were not supposed to be in is totally freaking us out now. I am afraid they might have taken some expensive stuff like designer belts and shoes, but since we are not at home and we can check only when we get back, we are not sure what to do.
We already send that guest a message asking if it was indeed him gaining access to the rooms which were off-limit and if yes, what his reason was to do this.
Just hoping we are not robbed. The rest of the house was in good condition. At first sight nothing missing. Just one broken glass but that’s no problem.
Maybe Some of you experienced something similar?
