We've recently had some guests who wanted to stay with us for 2 days. We normally always accept it because we like to have guests at home. However, we ended up only seeing them on the first night, when we gave them dinner and chatted with them. They spent the rest of the time either in their room or out. Now we are wondering if we are expecting too much.
After hosting so many guests over the last 3 years, we have heard many anecdotes and we have even met other regular hosts. We've heard about hosts who are away but leave the key under the mat, others who let their guests camp in their garden but don't share any meal with them, etc. I think people understand Warmshowers from different perspectives and have different expectations.
I just wanted to know how other hosts see this issue. What do you expect from your guests?
I think it would be 'strange' to mention in our profile that we expect to spend some time with our guests if they stay more than one day.
