We just had the second guest this week contacting and telling us that they are getting evicted from their property, because their host was subletting the property on airbnb and the host found out.
The issue with airbnb is that anybody can just advertise a property there while other websites such as HomeAway required us to prove that we either own the property or we have a contract with the landlord to sublet the property.
I wonder how airbnb can scale and grow like this with no quality control!
Airbnb has now apparently added Bridgestreet global, a serviced apartment company in the portfolio but let's see how this will eventually work out.
At the moment booking directly with a reputable serviced apartment provider seems to be the only reliable solution for leisure and business travellers alike that don't want any surprises during their trip.
