I listed my house for rent on Airbnb for only one month and had three bookings. The first guest set a hot pot on my kitchen counter and melted it. The second guest dumped oil into the hot tub and broke the $200 handle, splitting the wood on the side of the spa. The last guest stole a white wicker storage chest with all the contents. I try so hard to make the house nice but why bother when three of three bookings ripped me off? I am ticked and disgusted. Now what do I do with the rest of these darned bookings? Cancel them? Grrrr…
Three bookings, three problems

If you list your place on VRBO, they have an insurance policy you can have your guests buy. It is from $59-$99. Even if your space is listed on Airbnb you can have the guests buy the insurance. Forget about the 1M insurance from airbnb. propertydamageprotection.com.
