Our place has gorgeous views and outside of Australians our main international guests are Singaporean as they love the space, views chickens etc… They are lovely people, clean, quiet and respectful.
The one issue I have is that they turn every light on and leave them on through their entire stay, even at night and when they leave. I’m assuming this is something cultural that I don’t understand. However, as we respect the environment and turn off every light we can and also do this to minimise cost, I find it really disrespectful!
They also crank the heaters up to the maximum of 30 degrees. Whilst I hate this for the same reasons of environment and cost, I can at least understand it given their normal temperatures.
Our last electricity bill where we had a 3 Singapore guests in one month, was double the same period last year. I’m at the point of refusing Singapore guests given our property is booked flat out.
Has anyone else had similar experiences or can suggest how to deal with this?
