Hello & thank you for taking the time to show your support! Our first guests arrive tomorrow, so hopefully everything is all ready! I came into the a bit reluctantly as initially the space was built for my parents to live next to us & then only lived there a year 😢 So now we will welcome people from around the globe & hopefully make many great memories! I have always enjoyed being able to stay in air bnb’s while on vacation, so this should be a good fit! I had 4 bookings in the first week but have had no other ones this week. So fingers crossed that I continue to fill up the calendar. 🤞🏻 Any tips on getting bookings would be appreciated. Also, do most people do a 2 night minimum, or is it better to leave at one while trying to get things going?

Thank you for any input! Sylvia

Bonjour Rebecca merci pour ce petit message d'accueil. Je suis contente de louer enfin mon gîte que j'ai fabriqué pendant une année et j'ai pris plaisir à le décorer. Maintenant j'ai eu deux réservations qui se sont bien passées et j'ai déjà des réservations. J'adore faire ce nouveau métier, et comme j'aime voyager, j'espère moi aussi ensuite pouvoir partir dans de beaux logements. Au plaisir de discuter, Delphine du Jura 😉

 

Translation: Hello Rebecca, thank you for this little welcome message. I am happy to finally rent my cottage that I made for a year and I enjoyed decorating it. Now I've had two reservations that went well and I already have reservations. I love doing this new job, and as I love traveling, I too hope to then be able to go to nice accommodation. Looking forward to discussing, Delphine du Jura 😉

Thank you for the welcome! Our first guest is set to arrive next Friday. We have been working on the house the last two months painting, doing repairs etc. We are excited and nervous but hoping for the best. Every time I get a booking, I sent a thank you/welcome note and that seems to be appreciated. I've stayed at a few Airbnb's and have appreciated fast response to queries so I will strive to do the same. Good luck to all!

You're very welcome!It sounds like you've put a lot of effort into preparing your house for hosting by painting, doing repairs, and making sure everything is in top condition. 
 
 
It's great that you're drawing from your own experiences as an Airbnb guest and applying those lessons to your hosting. 🙌
