Other Things to NoteIf you are new to Airbnb, there are some things you should know about listing your profile and making a request.
AirBnB will block your email, phone number, and personal contact information, so we are unable to communicate other than through Airbnb.
We, like most hosts, love to see profiles which are updated with some more personal information about yourself and a couple forms of verification, especially a verified ID. We like to see that to ensure a measure of security for ourselves and our guests. Once you have stayed with a host, you are rated by the host. That rating helps to increase the appeal of your profile. We are happy to give you any further information you may need.
