Seeking Advice on My Airbnb Listing - Looking for Your Expertise!

Hey Airbnb Community!

 

I'm reaching out to tap into the collective wisdom of this amazing community. I've recently listed my home in Stuart, Florida and I could really use some advice to make it even better.

 

Here's a link to my listing: airbnb.com/h/hiddengemstuart

 

While I've already received some positive feedback from guests, I'm eager to fine-tune the experience and make it truly exceptional. So, I'd love to hear your thoughts on any aspect of my listing:

 

  • Are there any amenities or features that I could add to enhance the guest experience?
  • How can I make the listing description more compelling and engaging?
  • Any tips for improving the photos to make them more attractive?
  • Suggestions on pricing strategies or promotional tactics to attract more guests?

Whether you're a seasoned Airbnb host or a frequent traveler with valuable insights, I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions you can offer. Your expertise could really help me take my listing to the next level!

 

Looking forward to hearing from you all and grateful for your support!

Hi @Colette459 

Luv your place!  Lots of great suggestions from @Marie8425 @Fabienne617 . A few things I noticed:

 

Title

Your title should include your best amenities/unique features. Maybe how close you are to the beautiful beaches? Something like:

 

"10mins to XXXXX Beach - Firepit & Game Room"

 

Amenities List

Your amenities list appears incomplete? Looks like you didn't add alot of the amenities available for Hosts to list especially under the Kitchen heading? Most homes of this size have well over 50 amenities listed. I would go thru the amenities section of your listing under each heading and ensure you have listed ALL the amenities you have. Don't forget to add details that are indicated by the pencil icon. For example, your listing says "washing machine" but you didn't indicate if it's free? in the unit? To add an amenity hit the (+) sign. To add the details to an amenity use the edit button and click the pencil icon:

A complete amenities list will look something like this on the listing:

Photo Captions

Add caption/descriptions to every photo. This tells the story of your property visually. Guests need to understand what they are seeing in the photo.

 

Add Photos of Important Amenities

You mention a fire pit, but I don't see a photo of it? Make sure the fire is going and I would take the picture at twilight. You mention you provide beach towels/chairs etc., but no photo of it? You mention a washer/dryer but no photo of it? You get the idea 😊

Hi @Colette459 , my name is Fabienne and I am a new host. I’d like to mention two things I added to my place that will attract guests, remember we live in south Florida, we are surrounding with beaches. I added beach towels and sunscreen in a nice beach bag, and I also added a few games like: UNO,monopoly, dominoes, cards and another one called “let’s get deep in case they want to stay inside and relax without being on their phon or watch TV. Here’s my link

@Colette459 the actual description  is quite short.  I  would put more information.  III go  through my  reviews  to see what guests highlight..  I  noted guests commented  often on  cleanliness  people usually mention something often because pleasantly surprised  which can  be good but your condo offers soo much more.   I  wouldn't take up a bunch of your  ad  space  butt  I  would  highlight  because not  all rentals  are clean.  Especially if two adult couples  they  don't want to deal with a sticky countertop..

One  guest mentioned  beach items   amenities  another  thing I   would  highlight not  bringing a simple  chair for the  beach in your luggage  is  a  highlight.

Another thing II seen on someone else's listing II thought was really  neat  was I  think she populated other things to know so  it displayed when you looked at  full  description,  she listed like restaurants  beaches and supermarkets and  distances.

This is great advice thank you!
