This winter in the mountains of Colorado, my friends and I rented an apartment in a cabin. A few nights we didn’t even set foot in the cabin until we were ready to leave. As we sat in the living room, we made plans to return. We knew we could only get up to the cabin once and then we had to leave by noon, so we made a plan. This is one of those rare moments where you can’t help but feel guilty.
The cabin was an older home with a full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. We packed our bags and spent the night in the living room as we waited for the sun to go down. We had a plan, and we were so ready to go.
We were supposed to be in the cabin by 10:00, but since we were all there by 11:00, we decided to pack the rest of our stuff and leave so we could go back in the morning. We couldn’t do that. We wanted to be there before noon. We wanted to be there the next day.
A lot of people get caught up in the “we’re not staying in” aspect of this, but we were just lucky enough to be on our way. There are no guarantees. The good news is that this isn’t a life-threatening situation. We were just on our way to go camping.
We werent expecting to survive this one. We were just planning on camping, and we were on our way to go camping, when a tree broke just as we started packing it. We werent expecting that, so we had to call the fire department. We didnt know it was a tree until we opened the cabin door, and the fire department came running just as we were trying to leave. So we were told that we were going to be evacuated and we werent the only ones evacuated.
In the days since we’ve been home, we’ve been getting a lot of calls from friends, family, and other people who’ve rented a home and are in need of our help. And the more we’ve been told by our friends, family, and others that would like us to help them, the more we feel like we should be helping them. We feel like part of our role in this situation is to help others.
We think that the role of a landlord is to be your own landlord, but in the case of airbnb hunters, it seems to be more than that. Most of the people we have been helping have rented out a home in the past few years and they are all in need of a place to stay.
The problem is that in most communities, rental property taxes can be pretty high. And in many states, like California, you have to pay for the property tax twice. With that said, we would like to help you. Let us know if you are in need of a place to stay. Just give us the email address of the person you are looking to help.
We have no idea where the person lives or what kind of property they live in. If you can provide that information, we will try to help. If you don’t, then it means we are out of our minds. If we need to make sure the person gets a place to stay, we will make arrangements.
Our goal on our website is to help people in need. We have no idea who owns the property, but we are trying to find out. We will do our best to help and make sure the person gets the best possible accommodation.
