New to the Community Center? Introduce yourself here โ€Œ๐Ÿ‘‡

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to the Community Center! ๐Ÿ‘‹  I'm @Bhumika , one of the Community Managers for our English Community Center along with my lovely team members @Quincy @Paula @Rebecca  and @Sophia and we are thrilled to have you join us.

Let's kickstart this thread with a little about us Community Managers:

@Quincy : I'm from the Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ I have been on the Community Center for 6+ years, and have been an Airbnb Host myself. I love cycling๐Ÿšฒ, playing footballโšฝ, and travelling๐ŸŒ . I love how dynamic and diverse the Community Center is as we meet Hosts from all around the globe. 

@Bhumika ๐ŸŒ I was born in Gujarat, India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ , and shifted to Toronto, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ last year! ๐Ÿ“ท I recently realized my love for photography and aesthetics. I love to capture mundane life and candid pictures. ๐ŸŒ† When I'm not working, you'll find me binge-watching thriller movies or exploring history.

@Paula : I am from Colombia ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด and currently living in British Columbia, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. I have a passion for Latin American culture (I love to dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ) . I've had the opportunity to visit around 20 countries ๐ŸŒŽ and plan to visit many more. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities, especially mountain biking ๐Ÿšฒ and hiking ๐Ÿ”.

@Sophia : Born and bred in the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง but my roots are Bangladeshi ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ. I love cats ๐Ÿฑ, enjoy eating crisps (also known as chips) and enjoy baking ๐Ÿช. I also love travelling โœˆ๏ธ  I have worked in Community ever since I graduated and to put it lightly, people are my passion! ๐Ÿ’–

@Rebecca : I'm from Cardiff in Wales originally but being a military child and a veterans spouse, I've travelled and lived in a lot of different places in the UK and Europe. I'm an environmentalist ๐ŸŒฟ and like to minimise my impact on the planet ๐ŸŒŽ as well as volunteering in my local community.  I love sea swimming ๐ŸŒŠ yoga on the beach ๐Ÿง˜โ€ and I'm a children's yoga instructor too! ๐Ÿ™Œ 

Now it's your turn! Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? And is there something special about the location of your accommodation that you'd like to share?

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Warm regards,

Bhumika

Hi, my name is Ruth and I just joined as a host, though I've been a guest for a while.  I bought a condo in Heredia, Costa Rica, which is near San Jose.  I just had my first guest check out, and I had some questions.

Hi,  I'm Diane, I have a little 1 bed self contained flat just south of Cardiff, Wales on Air BnB.  I started about 3 weeks ago and I've already had 3 guests stay and another one due this week.  

 

If anyone has any useful tips on cleaning I would be most grateful as it's taking quite a time after each visit at the moment.  The guests do leave it clean but I still seem to spend a lot of time cleaning.  This weekend I did try using my robot vaccum which can hoover and mop which did do a very good job.  Any other time savings ideas are gratefully received.

Hey there Diane ๐Ÿ‘‹ Cardiff is my home town ๐Ÿ˜ 

 

That's fantastic to hear how you're starting out and already have had 3 guests! Well done and a huge welcome to the Community Center! ๐ŸŽ‰ 

 

Great idea with the robot vacuum! I feel like I need one of them as I have a young family! 

 

The Community Center will be a great space for you to get advice from other Hosts. 

 

My favourite boards and ones you could pop your questions into are:
โœจ Ask about your listing - You can ask other Hosts to critique your listing, you could be pleasantly surprised at what other people see!

โœจ Advice on your space - This is great for general questions about your space specifically, for example, the amenities that you have at the property to what types of sheets that you use.

 

Best of luck!

Hi everyone! I live in Ohio and recently purchased a condo in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that we are trying our best with as our first Airbnb property. This is where we vacationed our entire life and where we plan to retire. In the meantime we wanted to provide an amazing space for others to make memories!

Hey everyone,

 

I'm Anne, originally from Switzerland but now living in Japan. I speak French, English and Japanese. I've been a Co-Host on Airbnb for less than a year, but I've been using the platform as a guest for over a decade. When I'm not hosting, I'm busy with my main job in filmmaking. Nature, hiking, and cinema are my passions.

 

My husband and I own Nunome-ya, an inn in the Japanese Alps, situated in the castle town of Iwamura. This town is famous for its sake and for being featured in a TV drama and a movie.

 

Right now, we're working on turning our place into a zero-waste haven and a creative space. We often have artists staying with us, and we're excited to soon offer an artist residency in a renovated building in our garden.

 

Though our journey with Airbnb has had its challenges, we're here seeking support and advice. Let's connect and make our hosting experience even better together!

 

Cheers,

Anne
