I’ve been lurking here for ages so feel as though I ‘know’ some of you already but this is my first post. I haven’t been hosting for very long and so my first summer is coming up (hurricane season here).
So firstly, I’d love advice about what experienced hosts do when extreme weather is heading your way. Do guests generally cancel when they hear that rough weather is due? (Although I find that more often than not the media over-reacts with severe weather warnings).
Also, the apartment is about a mile from the ocean and we’ve never left when evacuation has been recommended but I can imagine a scenario where we have guests in the apartment who would panic and want to leave. If that happened, it would be great to connect with other hosts in South Florida who live more inland. If you do, I’d like to make contact so that I could direct any panicky guests who want to leave my apartment to your (safer) place. Would this work?
Any tips about dealing with Airbnb during extreme weather would be greatly appreciated — thank you!
