Tips for Preventing Unauthorized Extra Guests on Your Airbnb

Airbnb hosts have a right to expect that their guests will respect their property and adhere to their house rules. However, some guests choose to ignore these rules and bring extra people into the rental unit. This can be a problem for several reasons.

First, it puts extra strain on the property. If a rental unit is only meant for four people, having six or eight people staying there can cause problems with the plumbing, electricity, and other systems. It can also create extra wear and tear on the furniture and carpeting.

Second, it can create safety concerns. If a fire breaks out in an overcrowded unit, it can be more difficult for people to evacuate safely. In addition, if there are not enough beds for everyone, people may end up sleeping on the floor, which can be dangerous.
