I know this topic has been asked a lot, but as a somewhat new host, I’m just wondering if I’m expecting too much. Honestly to me, it seems fair that if you’re entrusting your home to a stranger, there should be a minimum of communication required. With automatic lock seem to take all personal hosting away. Heres a couple examples.
Guest checks in, we know because they all seem to log on to internet immediately, and xfinity notifies me each time someone logs online for the first time. I wait a bit, and message the guest to make sure they arrived safely and found property as expected and let them know Im always available. No response until 2 days later.
Guest instant books, despite my request for information, just sends message " its just me" or “thank you” or nothing at all.
Even hotels ask for a minimum of information, where is common courtesy or basic communication. How do other hosts deal with this?
