Thank you Paul, I am glad you had a pleasant stay.
Airbnb does not handle the security deposit side of things, and therefore we use a secure provider ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) to collect card details and place a hold on the deposit. The deposit is automatically returned after your stay, assuming there isn't any damage. I completely understand your concern, and I have removed your card details from our systems, to give complete assurance.
We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.
All the best,
David, Jodie (wife) and Tyler (8 year old son)
