We hit the road again, and we came back with some great memories and a great conversation with Superhost Patti Whalen! Patti actually left a career to become a full-time Airbnb host, after a serendipitous opportunity to host Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell for several months – and that then turned into 38 consecutive short-term rentals! Patti was having so much fun that she bought a second unit, and everything just kept growing from there. You’re going to be so inspired by this conversation and we just can’t wait for you to meet her.
We discuss Patti’s fact-finding expeditions to Airbnbs in Europe, the long history between women and B&Bs, following the rules, furnishing apartments (with minimal IKEA), Patti’s worst Airbnb experiences, tips and tricks for managing multiple properties, and investing in yourself.
