Put little touches in your space
I go to dollar tree and buy shampoo, toothbrushes and sunblock in case my guest forgot them
it has been a guest pleaser and help my rating
Hey I’m Steve in west palm. I’m new to this as well. On my 3rd week. Every night I didn’t block has booked. Very guest except tha bad one left 5 stars for me and I did this on a whim because I’ve got a 3 bedroom home. Just doing it with one bedroom and the guest bath shared which I am still improving the room. I just ordered a nice glass top desk and office chair for the room and a new comforter set to make the bed look nicer. That will check off the office check and the home is brand new and while I think I should have kept my older pool home in Port St. Lucie this one is near the airport and more ppl I think are looking to go to west palm.
I’m 4 months into hosting and have 5 star ratings
my issue is I only want to rent part time therefore it takes longer to get to super host status
patience is the key I think ?
As long as my reviews come in at 5 star and my price is reasonable I feel I will get the bookings when my space is open

Hi. Wondering if anyone in fort Myers knows of a host with a recreation or party room in the condo complex to have my daughters baby shower in. Of course I will rent the condo but would not do the baby shower in it. I have a small house in fort Myers, but it's on a main road with only parking in my driveway. Looking to throw shower in July. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I will be in fort Myers again in mid june.
I’m going on my third “season“ and here are some rough takeaways for those of you who are just starting out: Fort Myers is a highly seasonal market, roughly Jan through March/April depending on the location..thus, it is a part-time income at best. You will need to invest time and money. Even if you own the property, you will still have to adequately prepare the space for short-term renters. Do you own a computer and smart phone? If not, be prepared to buy them. The logistics can be tricky. If you do not occupy the property or live nearby, you are asking for trouble. Finding reasonably priced reliable “cleaners” is impossible. Probably because there is no “regular schedule“ possible, and because most Airbnb hosts cannot afford to pay very much. Lastly, the majority of guests are OK, but some are critical and rude. So, if you don’t mind people in your space at all hours, changing beds, mopping floors, cleaning toilets, being on-call 24/7, and occasionally dealing with a jack-ass ..it could be an option for some extra income! Bottom line: try it before you buy it. Airbnb isn’t for everyone.
PS: Are you dreaming of running an Airbnb remotely? IMO the infrastructure does not exist yet. If it does, I can’t wait to hear from you!
Hi, I am in Cape Coral and I am new at cohosting. This is pretty cool. I am looking for more homes to manage. I am also a real estate agent at Innova Real Estate Corp. in the Cape. Tell me about your experiences.
Has anyone been to a AirBNB host meetup group? I like this forum, but there are so many unanswered questions. My wife and I have been hosts for 3 years. We have a lot of wisdom to share and we are still struggling with some issues with our vacation rental, mainly loud renters outside after our 10pm quiet hours, sometimes until 1-2am. The common denominator is alcohol and they are non-family renters. They always assure us they will abide by our strict quiet hours. But then they seem to forget it. We have been reacting to neighbor complaints in the middle of the night. Or sometimes the next day. But we want to be pro-active. Another issue is people wanting to host small weddings, birthday parties, and other events. We love family gatherings. But some of them think that they can have loud music and dancing until late. Again, the bad guests are usually drunk. Anybody else struggling with this?
