In response to Peters comments - I had a burst pipe start of August that means there is not a shower over the bath. There's some water damage to the main bathroom and the down stairs toilet. The house was effectively fully booked in August and, given the lack of alternative accommodation for some major events in Glasgow just now I was not going to cancel and let people down.
I got in touch with everyone who's booked in August as soon as it happened and was happy if they cancelled if they had alternative arrangements.
To everyone's credit who use Airbnb they have been fantastic and completely understanding. I have blocked off the house for the first two weeks in September to complete repairs.
Peter, thanks for your understanding and support. You're a credit to Airbnb and would love to welcome you back when the house is at its finest. Cheers Paul
