We have a two family flat, we live in the main level apartment and rent the upper apartment on Airbnb. Last year we were closed due to covid, but are hosting again now. My question is regarding Halloween decorations in our yard. We really enjoy decorating for the holidays and Halloween is one of our favorite. We spent a lot of time making all of our decorations. I should add there isn’t anything to gruesome. There’s a small cemetery, a couple somewhat spooky scarecrows, a big spider and web, and tattered curtains and lights on the porch. There are no decorations in the apartment, just the yard and porch. Most of guests have given us positive feedback and commented on how unique they are. However one of our last groups to stay in 2019 wanted to speak to me about them, and ended up asking that I remove them all because of their religious beliefs. I said I would turn off the lights and could easily take down the tombstones, but the rest would have to stay because it was just too much work. They thanked me for being willing to work with them but refused to stay because I wouldn’t remove every single item.
Now that we are back to hosting again, and it’s almost time to decorate the yard for Halloween I’m getting a little nervous about the decorations. My thought has always been that guests are renting the apartment, not my entire yard. What do you think?
