Whoa! Am I reading the same thread about guests sneaking in an extra person…unauthorized, unregistered and non-paying…because the focus seems to be more about the cost of consumables used by extra guests rather than the true matter of intentional deceit by the parties.
Let’s put this in perspective. Guests in our AirBnb’s are paying for the opportunity and privilege of staying in our accommodation. It is with the understanding and agreement that certain conditions and rules apply.
Turning a blind eye on guests who blatantly or sneakily defy the rules only serves to give them the wrong message. It lets the guests know they have pulled the wool over the host’s eyes and can likely do it again with other hosts.
Why in the world would a host promote the practice of a “relaxed eye” to fellow hosts?
Obviously, every host runs their AirBnb differently and has their own tolerances as far as infractions. It’s one thing if a host chooses to overlook and allow unregistered additional guests to stay “on the sly” but it’s an affront to suggest and promote such an off-the-grid practice to other hosts here when most hosts are trying to get guests to abide by the rules.
Sorry, I just don’t get it.
