I don’t do self check-in. I live next to my Airbnb and always walk my guests through the house and its features. I also ask for the I.D. from the person who made the reservation and do not let other guests enter the property prior to the arrival of the account holder. This is not something a remote host can do so how do you confirm that the person staying at your property is actually the person who made the reservation?
Does it not really matter as long as you get paid? No big deal? Never have any issues?
