Having extra help with hosting can sometimes be fundamental to offer an excellent service. This is where a Co-host could play a very important role for Hosts. Delegating activities such as check-in, check-out, cleaning or responding to guest messages could be some of the tasks you as a Host could pass on to your Co-host.
I have seen conversations regarding Co-hosting, with topics varying from those looking for Co-hosting services to discussions about how much commission one should pay to their Co-hosts, and even how Hosts manage their Co-hosts.
Do you have a Co-host for your listing(s), or are you a Co-host yourself? Have you considered using one (or multiple) on a temporary basis?
I look forward to reading your replies!
Hi @Kathy1275, I hope you're doing well!
The prices for a cleaner from the website you mentioned seem quite steep compared to what you charge per night.
Have you considered checking out our "Get Local" page? This is where you can find local Facebook groups, where Hosts (and potentially Co-hosts) also reside.
Perhaps you might be able to find someone there for a better rate there, or local recommendations? Here's the link to the page (click here) 👈
I hope this helps!
currently live in the USA , my villa is in jamaica , so I handle all the bookings and communication from guest , hire a professional host to check in guest and provide them with the best services that we offers at our ocean view villa .
Your villa looks stunning @Marvette0! 🤩 How long have you been working with a co-host?
I do have a co-host. This helps a lot when I’m unavailable to answer questions or respond to a need. I’m lucky though due to the fact this is my son who helps manage it.
I'm seeing lots of Hosts mentioning received help from family members, which is so nice to hear! For how long has your son been your co-host? 🙂 @Toby-And-Robin0
I do it all myself. I had a co-host and property manager at different points in time, but doing it myself is the only way to maintain a 5-star experience for my guests.
Thanks for sharing your comment @Kevin2752! Do you do this full-time, and do you manage multiple properties?
I have a full time job and manage my properties on the side. I currently manage 4. I may add one more this year but anymore then that and I don’t think I could handle the work load.
Thanks for your comment @Shaoling0! 🙂
How do you manage your listing when you go on vacation?
Hello Fellows, Thanks for inviting me to share my experience!
Well, At the start of my hosting journey, I was lucky enough to have my daughter as a co-host. I could not have even considered hosting without her. She provided me with invaluable support, and in appreciation, I designed a commission cheque for her for every visit, I named it from "Mummy Organization 🤗", which was so funny!
We went through several enjoyable moments, stressful situations, valuable lessons, and successful achievements, all together.
Unfortunately, her summer vacation came to an end last year and I have been hosting on my own since then, which has been exhausting!
Let me tell you that having a co-host is essential, particularly if they are trustworthy, reliable, and an excellent communicator.
Wishing you a great hosting experience! 🌿
Hello @Inas120, It's lovely to hear that your daughter has been so supportive! Will she be coming to help you out anytime soon? 😊
Welcome to the Community Center @Adnan97! Do you make use of multiple co-hosts? 🙂
I don’t have a co-host as I have quite a few friends who can support f I am away or can’t get to the property to let the guest in. So I guess they are unofficial Co-hosts!
That's great to hear @Michelle3479. I had my cousin help me out on numerous occasions!
How long have they been helping you with hosting tasks for?
Amazing, I guess everything has been working out well for you then by the sounds of it! @Michelle3479
It's always great to get some help from those close to you 😊
