Background: I had a guest cancel because their cat was at the vets after a fit. I told them they could book later no penalty and opened up in case of a last minute booking. Not fussed either way. Was watching tv and got this message but didn’t see it to reply till much later. I have a minimum 2 night policy. I’ve noticed recently that not doing what people want you to do when they ask (nicely!) is considered a moral failing on my part. Or maybe it is just me
ps. I thought of wishing her good luck with the fishing but remembered they are probably in my neighbourhood (good fishing spot) and probably driven past a few times and I am home alone so best to keep
Hi James, would you consider a last minute overnight stay tonight? just for the one night please it would be much appreciated
Sorry just read this.
That’s ok, is this something you might consider?
my partner and i are hoping to do some fishing when the tide comes in at 11 and it would be nice not having to travel all the way home afterwards plus waking up to that amazing view in the morning
Sorry not tonight.

minimum 2 nights
Very disappointing. Not everyone can afford that type of money. As much as im sure theyd love to stay the 2 nights and pay you for the time if they could afford it but unfortunately they lose their oppurtunity altogether to stay at all, just the 1 night they can afford to pay.
