I had a very bad guest experience ( Korean group for e tire house booking) she checked out two weeks ago. The moment they checked out I found three big kicking holes in the master room door been covered by a bath towel . Our check out time is before 11am. They checked out at 12pm. So my cleaners waited outside for nearly one hour. And I asked Booking guests boyfriend Andy why there are three big holes in the door, he said he don’t know.
I asked where is the booking person Rachel, Andy said she’s at work also dont answer the phone.
So I called airbnb immediately and passed phone to Andy ask Andy talk to airbnb and explain why various damage in m6 apartment. ( Lamp broken, blood stain everywhere , broken glasses stucked on the wall and on the carpet, holes on the quilt cover, toilet leaking etc.) I am furious but kept as calm as I can . Andy only admitted the damage but didn’t explain why there are damage.
I asked Airbnb what should I do, they said upload photos go resolution centre within 14 days they will help me. I told them very busy today because new guests will arrive within 3 hours I need clean I will upliad photos tomorrow or the day after
They said ok just upload as soon as I can and within 14 days ( with all the email correspondence)
The day after is my partner’s birthday so I don’t have time at evening either. Extremely busy during the new year period , I only managed uploaded photos to resolution centre 2 days after Rachel checked out . Rachel never answer my call or response me anything except “sorry about that, I will call you back soon” message after I first messages her through airbnb.
4 days later after my resolution submittion and requested $1150 damage claim, airbnb emailed me back ( same person answered my call who emailed me back ) said because I didn’t submit photos before next guest check in ( I have back to back booking, check out before 11am, check in after 4pm), so airbnb CANT continue my case so case will be CLOSED!!! You serious? They must be joking!!! I was really upset can’t believe the same airbnb person told me " take your time , submit it within 14 days" didn’t warn me to also need submit before next guests arrival. I only have 5 hours before next guests check in but I have to
, Do housekeeping, ask guests what happened, call airbnb, find all the purchase receipts and ask for professional provide me quotation , taking photos and submit to airbnb. Etc.
This month is the most busiest time for airbnb host especially for people have multiple listings . It’s just seems impossible to do all the thing before next guests to check in
I called back airbnb immediately after received rejection email. Argued with them for hours and they finally reopened my case for reconsideration and i received email from them said I have to submit everything they requested within 72 hours and today is 28th Dec. I really don’t know how can I collect all the documents within 72 hours festival period.
Warning all the hosts , if damage occurred must open resolution case and submit photos immediately!!!
