Would a locked door (locking off one of the bedrooms) in a short-term rental make you not want to rent there again?

I think it might seem odd, a bit unwelcoming. But I am getting what I agreed to pay for.

For a vacation rental, where the owner lives there during part of the year, I'm not sure that I'd be all that surprised to find one room locked up like that.

I would assume that It's just the room where they keep stuff that they don't want strangers messing with.

I've had that in the past. Not odd at all.
Even if the owner doesn't live there it's still ok for them to lock a room with stuff in it that is none of my business.

It's weird, but there is apparently legal precedent now that if you hear something on the other side of the door you're allowed to just start shooting through it like crazy.

Yeah, you wouldn't want anything in that room to make noise... or perhaps I've found the solution for our cat that just won't seem to give up the ghost.

Iowa?

Ok, sounds from the locked room definitely would be odd ...

I'm pretending I don't know where you are by guessing incorrectly.

It might be quite awhile before I'm laughing about that.

I've rented places that have areas locked off, and it was fine, but did make me curious.

I wish you would stop standing in front of the door, dacash. I can see the shadow of your shoes on the other side.
3 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 9/11/14 - 7:39:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eh, I'd be curious, but I wouldn't ask about it.

i'd probably just spend the whole vacation youtubing how to lockpick videos

I would not rent that house.
