Is my property safe?

BnBird does a rigorous check of your property and document every detail, to ensure that everything is exactly how you left it.
We also make sure that all guests are verified with the booking channel and have positive reviews. If a guest doesn’t have enough reviews, we will do a careful interview to ensure the safety of your property. The guests will also have to provide a security deposit in case of damage.
This does not apply to our Online Management service package, since you are the one responsible for your property and for receiving the payment from your guests.
