I have a question regarding dishwasher and I hope someone can provide opinions. My listing doesn’t have a dishwasher and so far one guest complained about it (out of 30 groups). Most of my guests stay 4-5 days but there are a few staying between 2 weeks to 5 weeks. I live in Australia and I have to admit almost every house I lived in had a dishwasher.
My question is will you not book a place because there is no dishwasher? Please also specify which country you are in. Thanks a lot for providing opinions!
I decided to start a new thread for you since the one you posted on was so old.
To answer your question…I am from USA and wouldn’t use a dishwasher even if it was there. I am in the minority but no way would you not having a dishwasher dissuade me from booking. I think it saves times to just wash by hand, dry, and put away.
I grew up with a dishwasher, love them. For a few days I’m fine without one. Longer booking, I’d rather have one if possible. On the other hand, I don’t need a clothes washer when travelling. Prefer a laundromat so that I can use several machine and get it all done fast.
I use Fairy or Finish tablets at home. I love dishwasher myself and I wanted to install one at my listing, the only problem is I need to pay some extra money for cabinet adaption and pipe connection. The pipe thing can be quite expensive. Also, one of the cabinet door can not open fully if I install the dishwasher.
Yes, for a shorter stay. Given a choice between a washing machine and a dishwasher, I will pick the dishwasher every time. However, it sounds as though your kitchen really won’t accommodate one easily, losing some cabinet functionality which would be a minus for you overall.
More frustrating are the places I have rented that have a dishwasher, but only have two plates and three glasses! There is no way to fill a dishwasher in a place like this, so in that case, it is a wasted amenity.
My husband loves to wash the dishes so I have one automatically when I book. We stayed over three weeks at an Airbnb w/o a dw with no problem. However, we did miss a washer dryer but the lovely hosts let us use their machine. I would have hated lugging laundry to the laundromat.
