I recently stayed in an Airbnb place in Pennsylvania.

After I checked in, I decided to head out for the afternoon, and the host made sure to give me a key to the house before I left.

Except there was a problem: she gave me the wrong key!

I didn’t find this out until I returned back that evening. The house was dark and empty, and I was stuck out in the cold with a key to who knows what. 

So as a host, if you’re going to give your guests physical keys, make sure that you have multiple copies of your keys made for guests. Labelling them is also a good idea, to avoid any confusion.

You don’t want to leave your guests out in the cold – either literally or figuratively :).
