Glad to have found this forum as we are new to AirBnB.
Our place is getting quite a lot of bookings and we are doing our utmost to keep
our guests happy! Investing time, energy, money and enthusiasm! BUT the one thing
we see that is working out negatively for us is the location even though it is in a country
setting with hills etc, the only thing is that the valley is a litte ‘unkempt’ and there
are terrace owners who still use weird things like bed bases to fence in their land
and their dogs can at times create noise,not all the time but at times (a few weeks ago
for the full moon!). There are the usual country sounds of cockerels, owls, donkeys etc…
we have just had 2 sets of visitors, young city couples who said they loved the cave house
but in their review gave a 3 and a 4 for location. As there is nothing much we can do
about the location, we have decided to explain about the unsightlyness of some of
the surrounding dwellings and mention the country sounds!!! Do you think that
would be ok to do? I think I’d rather the guests know what lies ahead for them
than to be shocked at anything horrilble they might see in the area??? What do
you think. Thanks in advance for any advice or any experience of this you would
like to share.
