How STRs Can Get a Leg Up on the Hotel Industry- with Wil Slickers

We’ve talked about what the short-term rental industry can learn from the hotel industry… but what can Airbnb and other short-term rentals do even better than big chain hotels?

Wil Slickers is the creator of hospitality podcasts Slick Talk and Good Morning Hospitality and co-founder of Recreation Rentals, a boutique rental management company. He always had a love for people but didn’t know where to channel that passion until he discovered the hospitality industry. He started his podcast to interview people who had an extensive background in the industry and great stories that people could learn from. We talk about what he’s learned from working in the hospitality industry and from the many guests he’s featured on his show, as well as what short-term rentals can do that hotels just can’t.




Time for #STRsharesunday and today we’re sharing Birmingham Tree House!

Another unique space! This “tree house community center” is so cute and so special. Rather than a bed and breakfast, it’s a bed and yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️ and it’s not actually a tree house, but a mansion.

Here’s a description straight from the website: “Birmingham Tree House is a unique concept in the heart of the Magic City… a vivacious blend of hospitality and healing. 1898 Victorian mansion newly renovated into a colorful and contemporary wonderland. An artistic oasis…”

What an amazing and creative space with 5 guest rooms, yoga, and therapy/counseling! We love host Renny’s boldness in her pursuit of what she wants her property to be. Check her out… you will be inspired for SURE!

If you build it, they will come!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

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.
