Last week I posted about Airbnb and their amazing rental services and how it has opened up a new way for people to make money by renting out extra space in their home. I asked about some suggestion and the response from this community was overwhelming!
Many people shared their experiences and gave some great tips. I was particularly impressed with how quickly people responded and the level of detail they provided in their answers.
Here I am sharing all the details in hope of helping other people discover the possibilities of renting their space through Airbnb.
1) The most important thing I did to make my Airbnb stay stand out was to provide amenities that my guests would not have access to in a regular hotel. This can include things like an outdoor space, complimentary snacks and drinks, or even just small touches like locally sourced soaps or luxury linens.
2) To make guests feel at home and welcome, I like to go the extra mile with hospitality. This can be anything from providing fresh flowers or a welcome basket on the bed upon arrival, having an information book with local tips and suggestions, or offering to provide transportation for check in and check out.
3) I provide a variety of amenities and facilities to ensure guests have the best stay possible. This includes free Wi-Fi, HDTVs with satellite channels and movies on demand, complimentary toiletries, 24-hour room service, luxurious bedding and towels, coffee makers, mini-fridges stocked with snacks and beverages, dry cleaning services, and more. Additionally, I provide a concierge service to help guests with any needs they may have during their stay. For added convenience, I also offer a shuttle service to and from local attractions, restaurants, and shopping centers.
4) I'm always looking for ways to improve my Airbnb space and offer a more enjoyable experience for my guests. One way to do this is by offering coupons and discounts on supplies and decorations that can help to enhance the space. There are several websites out there that offer coupons for Airbnb supplies and decorations, so it's worth doing some research to see what kind of deals you can find. Some best deals I found are:
