Thank you very much for your list. It is sound advice and I practice most of these. I have to work on the garden though. I also agree with the person who commented on cleanliness. That is essential. I usually ask for a damage deposit but will sometimes waive it if the guest asks. However I have found that after they leave I realize something is missing,i.e. forkes, cups, wash rags. How would you handle this?
Dear Lilihelena I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am also afraid that something like this could happen. I have not put the directions to my property for this reason. I will inform the guests of the directions when they pay the deposit. I require a 50% deposit. Also I prefer to send them the bank information directly but I do not know how to do that yet since their direct contact information does not come up on the reservation page.
Hope to see more interaction on this.
