My AirBnB horror

My Airbnb horror .

It appears we had a double booking when we arrived at a rural chalet at a farm.

We went to see the owners and all seemed good , we settled in drank the tea ate the biscuits.we thought it was strange there were a couple of bags there but thought they were the owners ...

Imagine our surprise when at 8.45 pm to people cane through the patio doors bearing flowers vodka and other nibbles.

We were all taken aback and all showed our booking s on AirBNB 

So off we marched to the farm house in the dark to talk to the owners .

It appeared our booking had gone through and with Airbnb you don’t get the address till you have a booking.

But the other people’s booking it seemed was confirmed... on the owners end of AirBnb

Mystery it seems I hadn’t verified my details and Airbnb had emailed me to that affect but I hadn’t got the email.So my booking was cancelled.

I mean surely you should have to be verified before you make a booking ???!

As I can see this problem occurring else where !!

First time I’d used Airbnb and maybe the last !!🤣

Ps the owner had spoken to the other people on the phone and the chap had said he was with his girlfriend . I turn up and speak to the farmer and say I am with my husband...

This is why I think they thought we were wife swappers ...

I mean I enjoy nibbles but not that sort of nibbles ...

Thankfully we stayed in the farmhouse thanks to the owners ....

Hilarity and calamity seems to follow me ...
