It was !!! OMG. I would have hated it, if anyone would have tried to play me like that.
I called him that day, after mailing it back and simply stated, I had someone
for those dates and I couldn’t possibly accept the gift card knowing the
odds of doing future dates didn’t look great.
I surely hope in the future…esp. this being peak season - that you will charge regular full rate. Yeah a $300 gift card to the restaurant he owns is not really even him spending $300. Now…when he is willing to give up his restaurant revenue for five days during peak season…
No joke!!! I also find it rather ironic that I have been off his radar😆
after that! Hahaaa
I also love it when people you haven’t heard from in ages suddenly become chummy because you have a house by the beach in Hawaii.
Oh, friends and family!
Just tell them you’re full, or it burnt down!
It’s so transparent! I mean really, come on!
Since I went Airbnb, my offer to friends and relatives is always the same.
Everybody registers for Airbnb.
Everybody books through Airbnb.
And everybody pays through Airbnb.
I am up to my yin-yang with alcoholic friends and relatives. (Just lucky, I guess!)
In 50 words or less, they pay a pittance, but they are beholden to Airbnb, and not just me.
Those that DO book are frequent flyers, and it has worked out very well.
