Hola, creo que los detalles son importantes como cosas para desayunar, compartir lotería de navidad con los habituales, tenerles reservado el aparcamiento cerca del apartamento y recomendaciones de que ver recibir en persona y hacerles un pequeño tour del apartamento

Hello, I think the details are important such as things to have for breakfast, sharing the Christmas lottery with the regulars, having reserved parking for them near the apartment and recommendations of what to see, receive in person and give them a short tour of the apartment

@Mari-Carmen27 I guess many Hosts would agree that details such as these make a big difference in providing a warm guest experience. Do your guests usually mention your personalized ideas and touch like offering breakfast items, sharing the Christmas lottery, reserved parking, and personalized recommendations in their reviews?

 

Is there any particular gesture that your guests absolutely love? 😍

Casi todos dicen haber tenido sentido como en casa. Y si todos mencionan los productos para el desayuno, el menaje tan completo de la cocina y los que tienen niños mencionan lo de la bruja que les hace mucha ilusión a los niños, lo del aparcamiento yay lo encantador que es mi hijo y no es porque Sea mi hijo. La verdad es que los 4 años que siguieron como superanfitriones son gracias a él.

Los trató como si fueran de la familia mi casa son dos pisos así que somos los únicos vecinos y nos vemos bastante y suelo tomar algo con ellos. Mi hijo ha trabajado en tres continentes diferentes y muchos países para el la hospitalidad para el es muy importante y lo demuestra

He treated them as if they were family. My house is two floors so we are the only neighbors and we see each other a lot and I usually have a drink with them. My son has worked in three different continents and many countries, hospitality is very important to him and he shows it.

Tengo una brujita en el portal que les deja golosinas a los niños por la noche

Latetia Venter from SA.

I love this industry.

I enjoy the freedom to host or not to.

 

We just had a guest from New Zeeland .

He traveled for 2 days to  come back to SA.

He arrived very late and it was an immediate booking.

 

The way we waited for him, his welcoming present, cozy room, something hot to drink and a hot shower. Was hart warming for him.

The next morning he woke up with bird song , perfect SA weather and he knew he was save.

 

He gave me a 5 star review.

We made a difference for him when he needed it.

Looking forward to hearing more about your hosting journey! 🌻

Ciao a te Quincy e a tutti voi, sono host da pochissimo tempo e mi sono già innamorato di questa nuova esperienza che sta dando la possibilità a me e a mia moglie Francesca di incontrare tanti nuovi "amici". Sì, amici, perché come dici bene tu Quincy, grazie ad Airbnb ai nostri ospiti non offriamo  solo un alloggio, ma una storia unica da vivere, in parte anche con noi, che rimarrà per sempre nei loro ricordi. Come per magia si creano situazioni e storie veramente uniche, dovute ai nostri vissuti che si intrecciano con la magia della spensieratezza e della voglia di vivere nuove esperienze. Il cocktail è davvero straordinario e tutto grazie alle possibilità offerte da Airbnb che ci mette in relazione con persone che diversamente non avremmo mai incontrato.

Auguro a tutti di poter provare le stesse emozioni che stiamo vivendo io e Francesca!!

Hello to you Quincy and to all of you, I have been a host for a very short time and I have already fallen in love with this new experience which is giving me and my wife Francesca the opportunity to meet many new "friends". Yes, friends, because as you rightly say Quincy, thanks to Airbnb we offer our guests not only accommodation, but a unique story to live, partly with us too, which will remain in their memories forever. As if by magic, truly unique situations and stories are created, due to our experiences that are intertwined with the magic of lightheartedness and the desire to live new experiences. The cocktail is truly extraordinary and all thanks to the possibilities offered by Airbnb which puts us in contact with people we would never have met otherwise.

I wish everyone could experience the same emotions that Francesca and I are experiencing!!

Hi @Andrea-Salvatore0 , You've described the hosting experience so beautifully 😍  I'm curious, what has been one of the most memorable moments you've had with your guests so far? Do you have any special gestures that you and Francesca use to make your guests feel especially welcome? Like welcome snacks or welcome kits?
