#STRShareSunday: Farrand Hall

strsharesunday Jan 31, 2021

Time for #STRsharesunday and this week we are featuring Farrand Hall! 

Let's start with the DREAMY pink front door. What do you think!?

We could spend an hour going through their listing and talking about all the things they're doing right! This place is just too good.

Want to stay overnight? You can do that.

Want to host your wedding here? You can do that too.

Every picture they post is instagram-worthy, the interior design is ON POINT, and they truly do an amazing job capturing the essence of the kind of experience you could have should you decide to book their space for an event or just a getaway!

The home was built in 1854 (vintage... LOVE!), and you can purchase products and merch online that they have created specific to their property. What a way to elevate the guest experience!

If you want to do more with your property, make sure you check them out, look at what they're doing, and give them a like and follow!

#STRShareSunday: Saguaro Whispers

strsharesunday Jan 24, 2021

Time for #STRsharesunday and this week we are featuring Saguaro Whispers !

This is an amazing, luxurious desert getaway in the Casa Grande foothills of Arizona. This rental is owned by three amazing women: Norah, Ana Karina, and Maria. There are three casitas on their B&B property.

What we love is that they are working on a garden and offering farm-to-table selection. They are really trying to encourage their guests to unwind, rise when they want, and relax without strict adherence to a schedule.

97 | Short-Term Rentals are Not Just About Heads in Beds

Uncategorized Jan 21, 2021

 Excuse us while we get on our soapbox: We are so anti heads-in-beds. We are not about getting as many people into a space as possible to make as much money as possible.

We’ve consulted on properties before where it’s clear the goal of the owner is just to get people in, give them a place to sleep, and make some money—and we’ve had to get brutally honest about what they need to do to remain competitive.

Whether you’re hosting a property yourself or helping to manage someone else’s, there are definitely some things that are non-negotiable. Would you stay at your own property on a weekend getaway? If not, why? And why would someone pay your rate instead of something offered at a lower price? You have to understand what you need to offer to demand a top-dollar rental fee. You have to think about the location, the interior condition, and the quality of the furnishings. All of this is going to impact the impressions of the people who stay —...

#STRShareSunday: Anna's Getaway

strsharesunday Jan 17, 2021

Time for #STRshareSunday and today we're sharing Anna's Getaway!

Anna is a five star superhost from San Diego, CA! If you haven't done this already, in your highlights on instagram, HIGHLIGHT YOURSELF! Part of what is so amazing about AirBnb is that people want to stay and get to know the HOST and the city they call home. Anna does a great job at showing who she is before you book or stay!

She has hundreds of reviews, knows exactly what she's doing, her branding is on point. We also love that she requests that you hashtag her during your stay so she can participate in your stay. Have your own own hashtag (let them know what it is in your welcome message or welcome book or on your instagram), and it will give you content to share and insight into how your guests enjoy their stay!

96 | Create a Space Where Everyone Belongs | with Amy Corbett of All Belong Co

Uncategorized Jan 14, 2021

Why are you interested in short-term rental hosting? Like everything in life, hosting is not always easy, and when the hard times inevitably come, you’ll want to be able to look back and remember the strong “why” that got you started.

Amy Corbett is the founder and chief Airbnb-er of All Belong Collective, a small business that specializes in creating unique spaces where anyone can belong. She and her husband had always had a hobby of renovating houses into long-term rentals. They were in the middle of creating an apartment when they first heard of Airbnb, and they decided to dive right in and give it a try. She got invested in being the best host she could be, and eventually she realized she felt passionate about helping others be the best hosts they could be too.

Amy’s family is not a typical family, and they struggled to feel like they truly belong. But they take their diverse family very seriously, and they try to celebrate it in everything they do. This...

#STRShareSunday: The Bungalow CDA

strsharesunday Jan 10, 2021

Time for #STRsharesunday and this week we are featuring The Bungalow CDA!

This 1920s bungalow is located in Coeur D'Alene, ID! We love how they have set up their instagram stories and have repurposed their photos and reviews! Sometimes your reviews can get stale in your listing, but using a graphic design program like Canva (don't worry! it's super easy for beginners) to make them pretty on your instagram account!

Since this is the beginning of the year, now would be a great time to do a little instagram inventory of your story highlights, which can really share a lot about your property.
