I had a guest under the name of Tayla (profile has since been removed) . Do an instant book.
I should have listened to my gut instinct when I met the woman (who looked nothing like the profile photo).
She explained that they were there for work and she is checking in for her boss (this happens all the time) Just she didn’t “look” like the type to hold down a job.
On check-out The home was left open, keys stolen and the home was trashed. The cleaners were threatened by what must have been “clients” left in the home. I had to have police escort me into my own property.
I should have done this earlier… and i urge ALL hosts to do the same. If a guest uses a different phone number to do the main communication with you to google it.
I did google 0421956071 when it was too late and found two listings for prostitution services.
Apart from the spit on the walls, poo on the floor and blood on the sheets, god knows what else was over the home.
I have just opened a case with airbnb and I hope the resolution will be a lot smoother than the last two times guests damaged the home and let it in a disgusting state.
