I’m a newbie starting out on the air bnb journey and will add my house for guests commencing this spring. We have a well maintained & lovely large property enough for up to 12 guests. The intention is to let the house exclusively. A friends flat nearby is mostly available (she lives abroad & doesn’t rent it out) for a small fee so we can move out during the let. My question is regarding the utility room which houses the washing machine and tumble drier. I am adding all sorts of extras to make the experience appealing but my thoughts are I really want to lock the utility room due to the possible huge costs if for example a large group of guests all decided to wash & dry their clothes before leaving & on a regular basis. I’m also concerned a lack of a utility room could put guests off booking. I’d appreciate some thoughts on this & thanks in advance.
