Ciao, I am Aurelio, thanks for reaching out!
Please read carefully as I would like to inform you that my summer holiday home "Gracious Cottage" during 2015 has been booked by 7 AirBnB guests, generating 5* stars reviews. The property was managed and hosted on my behalf by my daugther's Airbnb account (her name is Silvia). I am a retired senior citizen, not too familiar with the latest internet aplications and Silvia was helping out managing the property from her own account to put the summer house to some profit.
For 2016, to better comply with fiscal regulations, I was advised to create a new AirBnB account, using my own tax ID number. And here am I!
Unfortunately, all the previous reviews, cannot be transferred from my daugther's account onto mine...that is a big loss! However, I saved the reviews in pdf pubblished its under the "photos" section of my new accounts. Please look at the photos section, scroll down and torward the end you will find last year reviews. Despite my new account, Silvia will be continuing managing Gracious Cottage, answering your questions, and assisting you direclty o my behalf but this time from my own account. She loves to host and she will make make your Sardinian Experience memorable! She can assist you in English, Italian, Frencha nd Spansh. Thank you very much again for your interest! Please do not heistate to ask with any questions.
Take care and enjoy your stay!
