This guest post for The Abundant Host is courtesy of Veronica over at Host Hacks Australia, a fellow lady in the business of Airbnb (and an amazing interior designer). I asked Veronica: What does being an “Abundant Host” mean to you? She told us:
I’m moving from primarily a Feels-Like-Home Host to the Bed-and-Breakfast Host, after having moved on Aug. 1 into a gorgeous, modern, spacious two-bedroom with my love. What does this shift mean for The Abundant Host? Read more to find out.
We spend a third of our life in bed, and people often forget (or choose to ignore) how important a restful night’s sleep is. The truth is:
A quality mattress can really make a difference—especially when it comes to your listing’s reviews on Airbnb.
I was going through some old journals today, and I thought it would be fun to post this little note I wrote to myself on the day I first had my professional Airbnb photos taken…
If you live in your home and you’re leaving it up to you to do the cleaning and turnover before your guest arrives and before you head out of town (which you may decide to do whether or not you have a turnover assistant to help you when you’re not around, to save money or for other reasons), here are some things to remember.
Hi everyone! I’ve been super happy writing this book for you on finding, hiring, training, managing and keeping your super awesome houseturnover assistant.
Your success, freedom and profitability through Airbnb is directly affected by the quality of work your houseturnover assistant does.
Since I’m doing a promotion right now where the first 25 people who buy my book will get it for $8.99, I wanted to bullet-point just one of five hefty sections in the book so you know what you’re getting!
Your success, freedom and profitability through Airbnb is directly affected by the quality of work your houseturnover person does.
If you’re ready to uplevel your hosting by hiring an awesome houseturnover assistant, you’re in luck! Because…
I’m writing an eBook that will show you the full-spectrum ins and outs of finding, training, hiring, managing and keeping your houseturnover assistant—with bonus tips on how to transition home, how to do a space clearing, and how to find additional assistance beyond your first assistant!
Airbnb now operates in 34,000 cities in 190 countries. And yet, the information market for helping Airbnb hosts is relatively slim.
There are only a handful of forums (often thinly populated) and websites (often thin on quality content) dedicated to showing people best practices for hosting that are heart-driven and focus on providing high-quality, intentional experiences.
Here, I’ve compiled a list of sites that meet five requirements:
1) they showcase original writing and advice that can’t be found elsewhere
2) they are inspirational, authentic or connection-based
3) they offer incredible value in their free resources/posts (whether or not they also sell a product)
4) they are sites dedicated exclusively to helping hosts, not one-off pieces on big websites
5) they aren’t the blog of a paid tool or app intended merely to drive traffic toward the product
If you’re looking for quality advice, these five resources merit your coffee-shop browsing time and meticulous note-taking.
I’m so honored to bring you this exclusive interview with the wonderful Mercedes Brennan of 1 Chic Retreat. Mercedes helps vacation rental owners/hosts increase their bookings by using interior design strategies to make their home stand out from the crowd—plus, she’s a damn good writer, which we at The Abundant Host very much appreciate!
When I come back from long trips, I often struggle with this feeling of emptiness; usually I stay in Airbnbs too, so I sometimes feel like I’m stepping into yet another one. I want to eliminate this as soon as possible. It usually only takes a night or another day maximum. But, doing these things helps speed up the process of slowing down, and soaking in the loveliness of being home.
