Actually, I really don’t want to continue doing short term rental. These last 2 weeks have been so stressful, that I just don’t want to have that kind of life. Every guest I’m hopeful and am trying to do everything I can to get a 5-star review and I had several that didn’t review at all.
I was even going to try to hang in there and see if they would reinstate me, if I could just get enough good reviews from the current bookings, but then I just got a call from a guest that moved in last night and she said that she couldn’t stay because the lighting wasn’t good enough for her to put on her make-up correctly every day and that she found a piece of trash under the sofa.
I lost it. I can’t do this. Don’t want to do this. Feeling like being held hostage by unreasonable guests and worrying every day. Not going to do this anymore.
I called airbnb and asked them to just give all of their booking fees back to those guests and that I’ll take care of the current guests in the other 2 units and to please cancel any future bookings. The funny thing is that he was trying to warn me of penalties for cancelling and I told him that it really wouldn’t matter, because they’ve already suspended me and that they wouldn’t have reinstated me , because there’s no way I could have gotten my average up past 4*, because I didn’t have enough reviews to counter.
