Re: Relocating to Seattle from Baltimore Area

re: Oblivious drivers toodling along in the Left lane on WA highways: I had to laugh when I read this point (made by a poster above) bc it's really true in my experience. I live in the SF Bay Area and do road trips to Seattle to see various immediate & extended family pretty regularly -- just retur...

Re: Relocating to Seattle from Baltimore Area

Just rent a little microtel in Seattle and fly home every other weekend. Why would you even consider buying, much less til after your wife joined you?

Re: Relocating to Seattle from Baltimore Area

For the past several months, I have been interviewing for a role in Seattle. I was unsure about moving, but the company is highly sought after so I continued interviewing not really thinking I would get the offer. Well, I went to on-site interviews last week and secured an offer! The pay is well ab...

There should be a price to pay. Whether the price was too high is a different topic.
No, this is exactly the topic. Are we reading the same thread?

It's possible that the host lost bookings during that two hour period because it was already "booked".
If in that high demand then it should be no problem to relist and rerent, even taking a reasonable fee from renter.

Re: Huge AIrBNB Cancellation Charge

Let's think about that. Let's say the host realized he had posted the wrong dates, and the room wasn't in fact available, and he realized this a couple hours later. I'd hope the renter would say, hey, no problem. I haven't made any plans yet. Stuff happens. Thanks for letting me know right away as o...

Re: Huge AIrBNB Cancellation Charge

Sure, he will learn a life lesson. But he would learn it even if owner refunded him all but $100-$200. Instead he will learn that some people are real jerks, and that gig companies like rideshare and the VRBO crowd like to have all the advantages of a single brand when it suits them best (VC fundin...

Re: Huge AIrBNB Cancellation Charge

I’m noticing three repeated fallacies in these comments 1. People call this policy covert, hidden, or act like it wasn’t shown to the user. In fact, it says very clearly ON THE SAME PAGE that one month isn’t refundable. I’ve attached the screenshot so we can stop acting like Airbnb hid something. T...

Re: Huge AIrBNB Cancellation Charge

Seems some people are missing the OP’s son cancelled within 2 hours part. I can’t believe anyone would think that the host is justified in collecting $1200. This isn’t a hotel where he’s cancelling 6 hrs before his reservation. He isn’t walking into the rental on day one and saying I don’t like the...

Re: Huge AIrBNB Cancellation Charge

This may be strictly the OP's son's fault, but the complete contempt with which the organization and the host treat their customers is Exhibit A as to why I've largely stopped using VRBO or Airbnb Hmm seems strange. Airbnb is a marketplace with hosts and guests. They have created clear policies and...
