Would a lockbox near the front door be the answer for these difficult ones? Then you don’t have to leave the door open. I use lock boxes for my holiday rentals and they work well. I do not live on the property but I meet most guests. Lock boxes take the pressure off guests rushing to arrive on time, and off me. I ask guests to sms me on arrival ‘so I can relax’ but only about half do. Usually we catch up in the morning. But also after being caught by unexpected guests who have made a booking within a couple of hours of a late check in, I have my settings at ‘24 hours notice’. I may miss some business, but I keep my sanity.
