Often guests will ask, "how safe is your area?" which is a very hard question to answer, because "safety" is often subjective. Rather than give a subjective answer to a subjective question and cause more confusion and perhaps guest blaming and finger pointing when they realize their subjective sense doesn't match yours.... why not use some tools that give factual info?
Thanks for sharing. I used areavibes = free. First "F" I've received in this lifetime.

At least I didn't learn something I didn't already know.
Best LOL of my day,
I figured out the gate problem with some help.
I'm gonna have a walk through gate installed if I have to buy a jackhammer and do it myself. Then, if they screw up the gate, can't get car into driveway, whatever, they can drag their sorry ass luggage to the main entrance.

I had a prospective guest want me to guarantee the safety of her "NEW" car and when I told her that it was impossible to do that other than to tell her that it is a very safe quiet neighborhood and that even the 5-star historic hotel in town with a very well lite parking lot had signs posted about not leaving valuables in the car. She became very snotty and wrote a short screed as to why she was not staying! I was so relieved that I didn't even bother to respond to any of her attempts to make a reservation. Fortunately, since all our correspondence was on the Airbnb platform I was not in any violation for not accepting her booking. I have only had what I call a bad situation the whole time I have been hosting other than the usual young entituled guests that I am always glad to see go. The rest of my guests have been wonderful and I have a great time with them and they usually end up becoming long distance friends which is nice. Hope you had a nice summer, Deborah.

Hi Eloise, nice to see you here again!
I guess some guests think that we are God , or The Goddess, the Divine Being itself, all=powerful and all-knowing, thus able to make guarantees and promises about anything in particular that might or might not happen to them in their lives, or their shiny new car.
yet...will such guests bow down to us in homage when they arrive at our door?
"Oh thou supreme all-knowing Divine One, thank you for guaranteeing my new car from harm!! "
