105. Shannon Leyh

Following the Journey from Idea to Income Property (Part 1)- with Shannon Leyh

What if you could follow someone’s journey from hopeful host to burgeoning success and see what exactly it takes to make it in this business?

Shannon Leyh reached out to us just as she decided to take part in this world and asked us to chronicle her experience — and we couldn’t say no! She’s vulnerable, honest, and shares all of the numbers behind what it takes.

Don’t worry — you won’t have to wait months to find out how this all turned out! In part two of our discussion, we’ll dive deep into how all of this plays out. We can’t wait to share it with you.

It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are featuring Heaven Cent Cabin!

This cabin is hosted by Judy and located in Clayton, Georgia. There are so many things to love about her listing! She has great photography, a cozy space, and does a wonderful job of showcasing all the wonderful things in the area around her cabin.

But what we love most about her listing is that there are things to note about her cabin… just like there are things to note in every urban rental, every beach house, every lodge, you name it. Judy makes sure to note that children are allowed, but it’s not a kid-friendly home due to the stairs, that it’s on a dead-end road and only has room for 3 vehicles, and our favorite: that the seventh guest space can only be entered through the master suite (so if you’re not into that… consider her cabin made for 6 and not 7!).

We love that there are NO surprises when guests show up. As a host, you have to be honest and forthcoming and you have to give as much detail about your property as you can.

We also love that she uses her 5-star reviews in her instagram feed! Go over to her account and show Judy some love!

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