Improve Your Airbnb by Thinking Like a Guest (Episode 4)

Airbnb Hosts Hanging Out in the Kitchen

Thinking Like a Guest: Starting an Airbnb 101

When you’re operating a short-term rental business, you’re part of the hospitality business. Just like a luxury hotel, the most successful short-term rentals sell their guests more than just a space to stay – they offer unique experiences.

This is a lot more work than just providing a space and cleaning it up when your guests are done using it, for sure, but it’s also a way to stand out in a crowded market and make a little bit more money per night.

So whether you’re just starting out or well on your way to building a successful short-term rental business, it never hurts to think like a guest and be proactive about offering things that might make staying in your locations a better experience.


Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
