A few months ago I was very enthusiastic about AirBnB. We setup a small house (separate from our residence) with furniture, linens, full kitchen, lots of amenities and extras. Our first few guests were great. But then we started to learn why hotels are so expensive. It’s because guests are thoughtless and wreck stuff all the time. It’s expensive to replace linens and towels because they are stained with makeup, blood, and who knows what else! It’s expensive to replace broken dishes and stolen utensils. It’s expensive to clean up after kids (people with kids are the worst!). Guests steal our towels, rolls of toilet paper, kitchen utensils, some moron stole the aerator from the kitchen sink!
So that’s enough of this for me. We are going to rent the house to a real tenant. AirBnB just isn’t worth it.
