Airbnbs are becoming more popular each year and along with hotels, they’re at the top of the pecking order regarding hospitality. Hosting Airbnb takes a lot of planning, attention to detail and commitment. With the right mindset, you can be successful and get good reviews from guests. Here are 4 tips for hosting an Airbnb!
1. Be Clear In Your Listing
When you upload your Airbnb profile, the messaging is very important. Be clear about what your Airbnb offers. List all the essential amenities, talk about the location’s convenience (if it’s close to the shops or a train station), parking, WIFI connection etc. State the check-in and check-out times clearly.
Don’t forget to include pictures. Not only does this help with first impressions but it gives the potential guest an idea of what the room looks like. However, when you are hosting an Airbnb, don’t over-exaggerate information because you won’t manage customer expectations well.
2. Greet Your Guests
Greeting your guests when they first arrive is an important tip when hosting an Airbnb. First impressions count and it’s always great to make them feel welcomed when they arrive. Start a small chat and let them know you are available should they have any questions. Being responsive goes a long to building trust and it helps guests settle.
3. Keep A Cleaning Schedule
Your Airbnb should be spotless. In times like this, hygiene is everything. Poorly cleaned Airbnb or hotels get the most vocal negative reviews. Make sure your Airbnb is praised for its cleanliness. Prioritise keeping a cleaning schedule for your bathroom and toilet and leave a nice freshener in the hallway.
4. Partner Up With A Laundry Service
