Do you have rules in place to minimize damage?
Yes. While the ultimate decision is up to you, the owner, we recommend a basic set of rules:
- Primary guest must be 25 years or older
- No parties
- No smoking
- No pets
We also make sure the neighbors have our contact information and can report to us if something should seem to be amiss, and we emphasize to our guests that the neighbors are our friends.
What if a renter has a party and causes damage in spite of the rules?
Insurance against damage is provided by both Airbnb and VRBO. In most cases, the guest reports minor accidents and breakage before they leave and an appropriate settlement is negotiated.
If unreported damage or a missing item is noted, we document as appropriate and contact our guest to get an explanation of what happened. If necessary, we reach out to Airbnb and VRBO to provide them with the necessary descriptions and pictures to get reimbursement.
