Be careful about the dogs allowed unless you know the owners are good doggie parents. Our house in Avon in 2019 was practically destroyed by a dog that evidently was never let out for the entire week. Subflooring and all flooring had to be replaced . It was like they let their poor dog pee in the house all week. I was devastated...especially when OBR said there was nothing they could do and did not give us a cent on the flooring which amounted to 9k. They did however send over a guy to replace the blinds that were bent and ripped down. We had to toss out a nice leather footrest and re wired the lamp cords that were eaten through. The pm didn't even come over when the construction guy came over to cut out the pee subflooring and put in new. We invited them and gave them thr date, but no one showed up. And...this year they charged us a 200 civic fee for "taking extra phone calls." Even tho it was debited in may and we didn't rent our home until June. They received the PPP....we did not. Hmmmm. Just be careful...you won't get a dime back for dog damage from that outfit. We're over it! We're dog people and our dog goes with us to our beach home, but we take her out and treat her well.
Unless you're well heeled and do loans frequently as part of your business expansion and wanted the PPP for the low interest and the forgivable portions, PPP is mostly a trap. The record keeping required is beyond the scope of knowledge o most small businesses and many suffer more harm than good (ask those who took them after Katrina, for just one example). But you could have gotten an EIDL loan, including the small grant. Both do have to be spent on certain things though, as well, so not always helpful. As the loans kept office staff in jobs and off unemployment, I'm glad OBX PMs did take advantage of loans.
Unless the guests were willing to foot the bill for repairs, the only recourse for larger expenses is a lawsuit, absent any insurance you carry that might cover it (there are some damage policies that can be owner purchased and paid for and built into the cost of rentals instead of the guest purchased variety offered through most PMs. That's why many owners prefer direct rentals, and to utilize something like Owner Rez for that purpose. That wouldn't have paid all of your out of pocket costs, but would have paid a good portion, and the policy cost is not high (because most guests don't do damage).
