Hi! I currently have a house that I run as an airbnb property, in Florida. I live in Vermont and do everything remotely. I love hospitality, so running my own business is great for me.
Today I am looking to see if anyone out there needs help co-hosting a property, whether it be local, in Vermont or remotely, from anywhere. Im really good at what I do, and it shows, in the reviews fro my property.
If anyone can point me in the right direction or know someone who needs a co-host, please let me know!
Hope to hear from folks soon 🙂
I hope it is not too late. I live near Orlando and I would like to be your co-host, please contact at ****
I look forward to hearing from you.

@Alexis154, I'm curious about this hosting remotely. What do you do if the guest messages to say there is only 6 wine glasses and your listing accomodates 8 so they need another 2 wine glasses, or if they need a potato peeler, or the linens are dirty and need to be cleaned?
Hi Krystal, The key to hosting remotely, is having a houskeeper/house manager that you can count on through and through. Without my housekeeper/everything that needs to get done, person, my business wouldn't be as successful as it is today. Before I answer your question, did you specifically say that you had 8 wine glasses in the cabinet, or just that the listing accomodates 8? If you only stated that the home accomodates 8, then you are not really responsible for providing 8 wine glasses. It would be nice to, but it is not a requirement. For instance, my property accomodates 8 people, but I only have 3 bicycles for riding. Same thing.
As far, as the potatoe peeler is concerned, my property has one of pretty much everything, so that the guests have everything they could possibly need. It's worth it. To make money you have to spend money, and if you spend it in the right places (even on the little things, like potato peelers and ear plugs) you will see a return on your investment.
If the linens are dirty, then there is no way around that. It's one thing for a guest to stain it during their stay, but it's another thing for a guest to arrive at the airbnb and be greeted with dirty sheets. That is something that you have to make sure NEVER happens. However, if it does happen for some odd reason, you should always have extra linens in a closet, to accomodate any mishaps. Sometimes guests stain the sheets themsleves by accident and need an extra set to change them, so always be prepared for that.
I hope this helps!

Hello airbnb hosts!
I am looking for a co-hosting opportunity especially in the Rogue Valley in Oregon, and am also open to taking on more remote job opportunities. I have been a superhost for two years and am skilled at doing all the work that has to do with setting up the listing : photography, listing description, etc...the client communication, before, during and after, managing the cleaning team and maintenance team, reviewing and managing reviews.
I enjoy this type of work because I am interested in excellent communication between people (I have taken many workshops to develop my skills).
I have an inherently good memory for details, like appointment times, scheduling, responding to clients or landowners in a timely fashion.
I also have a good eye for esthetics and enjoy beautiful images as well as a good presentation.
And lastly, because I enjoy working remotely.
I charge 20% to 30% in commission, depending on what your unit rents for a night and what my responsibilities will be.
Let me know if I you are interested in hiring me to perform these tasks for you.

I'm interested in looking for a co-hosting position. I'm living in Toronto, Ontario but able to work remotely within Ontario.
I have extensive knowledge specifically in hospitality and accounting. I would like to assist with bookings, contacting hired staff (cleaners, property managers) and ensuring that guests are accommodated. I 'm also able to help tourists with local spots/destinations.
If anyone has some tips or advice please let me know. I currently have a full-time position as an Accountant and Studio Coordinator. But, currently looking for a part-time position with Airbnb.
Would it not be possible to have a seperate tab/section on the CC, where anyone who wishes to offer useful and much-needed sevices relating to Airbnb hosting (co-hosts, cleaners, handymen, security services etc), are allowed to post their ads?
You know it makes sense, guys! 😉
@Susan17 it's on the list, promise! I like your suggestion to have in the CC as it will use the same system allowing for conversations therein. The only concerns with this is occasionally we may get less reputable vendors using the system which could put hosts in bad positions, and it would be terrible to have been the people that allowed the bad vendor to scope out their clients. Which isn't a "no" but a "thing to think about when planning." What would you suggest we could also implement to verify vendors, like a Checkatrade if you will?
Thanks (and I see you @Paul1255 sneaking in that kudo 😉 )
The large majority of my co-host clients have used “bad vendors” to manage their listings in the past (Airbnb recommended professional partners to be exact!) before having had enough and looking elsewhere for support.
Those hosts were luckily were able to somehow find me here on the CC to be able to support them instead.
I think when hosts have different options to choose from, they would be able to make an informed decision from the information at hand- it’s just a shame most hosts aren’t even aware that a co-host is an option for them.
If you implemented a chekatrade style verification, I wonder how many Airbnb professional partner management businesses would make the cut 😉
A sensible place to start might be to use Superhosts, who essentially are already verified by Airbnb.
