Host Safety & Trust

Aside from the Basic Requirements we demand from all of our hosts, we also have recommendations to help you help your guests.

The guest will have your direct number as soon as you confirm the reservation, be mindful and understanding of their situation if they reach you with an emergency.

    In case of fire: Remember to maintain a functioning fire extinguisher, as well as both a smoke and a carbon monoxide detector inside of your property.
