At the beginning of October I found the perfect rental apartment in Kyoto on AirBnB. The location could not have been any better, the apartment looked excellent and rented out by a company with 40 other properties in Osaka, all with very strong reviews and ratings. Price was right. I booked.

Yesterday, I got an email from them saying they decided to withdraw the property after the recent airing of some television programme criticising the AirBnB model, which they felt had turned neighbours of that property against them. Oddly, they've not withdrawn their Osaka properties, so not quite sure why this would be the case just for one property.

They did organise a full refund (including the AirBnB fees as well) and there was an offer of either taking a full refund (which I took) or using the entire value + an additional £125 against renting another property. I had a quick look but everything else with the criteria I've set, is either too expensive, not available or not in the right location.

Gah.

AirBnB are 0/2 for me now.

I realise that's down to the vendors not the system itself, but it still puts me off.

And now I have to start again on finding somewhere for my 7 nights in Kyoto in high season.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
