Relocating can be a daunting experience. When you’re moving to Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater or another area of Tampa Bay, you’re not going to be familiar with the local neighborhoods. Of course, you can do a quick, basic Google search, but it’s only when you get there that you can truly learn what the neighborhoods are like.
When you’re searching on short-term rental websites, images of the properties, both the interior and exterior, will make it look as clean, safe and welcoming as possible, but when you get there, you could be faced with a completely different picture.
It can be particularly risky to stay in single family homes or detached guest houses, because there are no surrounding gates to offer you safety, security and privacy. What’s more, whenever you’re a ‘visitor’ to the area, and not a resident, you’re less likely to be aware of any potential crime or safety issues.
Be mindful of the price on short-term rental websites. Ultimately, you get what you pay for. If a listing looks incredible and offers everything you need, but has an unusually tempting price, it might be because there are underlying crime or safety issues in the neighborhood.
According to a study by Asher & Lyric, of 127,183 Airbnb guest complaints, 6% were due to unsafe conditions, and 22% were a result of scams or the property not appearing as described in the listing. Rest assured that, with Ready Stays, what you see is what you get. We pride ourselves in providing a safe, secure, clean experience for all our guests, in all of our short-term rentals.
