We are new Hosts and just started with our 4 bd lake home in NC. We expected to get one or two fishermen to the area for tournaments, but we are shocked that just a few weeks after posting we are completely booked through September! Our first two bookings went well. We achieved 5 star ratings from each, and have learned a lot about what it takes to clean and prep for the next guest, especially when we live in Virginia.
My question is that some folks have started to request mid-week bookings to do some fishing, which is expected in this area because some tournaments last a week, or they are prepping for a tournament on the coming weekend. Some of these guests are new to Airbnb and have no reviews, nothing. I allow instant-book, as recommended, but get nervous when the guest cannot be researched.
