However, what you may not realize, is that these laws about mail, only cover items delivered by the USPS, not items delivered by other companies like Amazon or Fedex. Simply put, if your guest has an item delivered by Amazon or Fedex or UPS, you are under NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to make any effort to return that item.
In essence, Amazon (Fedex, UPS) gave you a present. "
According to the Federal Trade Commission, any merchandise mailed to you that you did not order may be legally kept as a free gift. That goes for Amazon or any other retailer who ships goods, and includes any incorrect items mailed to your address, even if the package is correctly addressed to you.

One of the drawbacks of bookings that come via Airbnb, is that you can't collect and hold a security deposit from the guest. And even if you could, Airbnb would likely not allow you to deduct from that for house rule violations. So, you would not be able to fine Airbnb guests for any house rule violations, which really is something that would be useful to be able to do, in order to help deter guests from repeatedly violating house rules, with no real consequence except you being upset at them. We know that scolding has no effect on some bad guests.
