thanks for answering ;). This is actually weird... I have got my first rental through Booking (only few days after setting up the listing!). And it seems the guests will pay using bank transfer... so I don't really know why Booking states the opposite when configuring the listing... I was close to disable the ad! but I didn't and now I have my first customers coming from Booking.
So, thanks to whoever in Booking changed that rule ;)
Hi again Barry... Thanks for sharing with me your thoughts :)
300€ is probably a lot for a room, but in my case I always take at least 1500€ as security deposit. It's a whole house to be kept undamaged!. I have to say that 99% of the guests behave really well, but we have to be ready for that 1%.
As for the cameras, I have thought of it, but I'm not sure how that would affect guest privacy...
anyways, thanks for your tips!
Thanks for commenting my post!. Re renting rooms, it's not that I wouldn't like. It's only that the regulations here (Ibiza, but probably in most of the municipalities) prevent me from renting rooms with my holiday license. To be able to rent rooms, I should ask for a hotel/rural hotel license (difficult to come by) and follow certain obligations, like having a reception, place for breakfast/lunch... and others that in my case are imposible to fulfill without big investments....
And re non refundable terms... I think I have not understood your tip... maybe you can elaborate a little bit. Sounds like a good idea.
