I want to block an entitled superhost who keeps hounding me to discount my rate in high season, but when I go to to profile and click on “report this profile” it will only let me report host-related problems:
I think they’re scamming or spamming me They’re being offensive Something else
How do I get to her guest profile to block her?
I don’t want to host her because I can already tell from her listings and her queries that I’ll probably get horrible reviews due to SuperHost Being A Nitpicky Guest Syndrome. Do you think I’m right based on this dialogue?
Hi Dennis! My boyfriend and I will be in Juneau at the end of June for his best friend’s wedding and we’d love to stay at your place. I have never been to Juneau before, so I like that it is centrally located and good for walking- I’m looking forward to exploring town! I just wanted to reach out to see if you would consider offering us a small discount for the 4 nights. Your place is a little outside our budget, but it is our favorite option of the ones we have seen in Juneau. Thanks so much for considering my request!
Thank you for your query. I believe that my rooms are competitively priced for this market at this time of the year. You’re welcome to book at my usual rates.
If you do book, please message me the full names of both guests, which I need to have for insurance.
She comes back
Ok, thank you anyway for considering! I’m going to sleep on it and I’ll make a decision tomorrow morning. Thanks again!
Hi again Dennis! I just went to book your place and it looks like the price went up! Did you increase your prices? Previously it was $480 for 4 nights and now it’s at $503. The original price is already pretty steep for us, so I’d really like to avoid going higher than that if at all possible. Thank you for your help!
I have a base price for the room, but autopricing raised the price from $85/night to $90. There is always a shortage of rooms here all summer, and if these days in late June aren’t rented soon, I believe that the price will go up, since very few hotel or Air rooms are available for these dates. The season here is 5 May-mid-September, and outside of that it’s dead, so I need to maximize revenue during my season.
She’s a superhost with a $500 whole house rental and $50 garden cottage rental in Oregon, which apparently entitles her to ask other hosts to discount rates in high season. I am tired of her passive-aggressive attempts to discount, and I’m sure she will find many reasons to give me 3 or 4 stars for a room which doesn’t have a lot of reviews. You would think a host would understand why I wouldn’t discount rates during our high season. I really want to just block her, but how?
