Guests with extra person (over the limit of the property booked)

 Hi - I would just like some feed back from others about people turning up with extra guests.

We have two, two bedroom holiday properties on our small farm. One sleeps 4 the other 5 people.  We have had a number of occasions that guests have turned up with an extra person i.e. 5 people in the 4 person property and 6 people in the 5 person property.

Usually, it is a child - like they think their children don't count!  I am getting very fed up with this and am starting to charge then an extra $15 per night for their extra person.

There is extra linen, towels and electricity costs - plus the additional mess!

Your thoughts on this everyone?

Many thanks
