A Wild Story: An Unorthodox Short-Term Rental Journey in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Dan Ferretti has spent most of his life acting, singing, and pursuing a career in theater. He supplements this unstable career choice by managing a rooftop baseball club at Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago, as well as working as a standardized patient at Rush University Medical College and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dan is also a Superhost of his vacation condo in Puerto Vallarta, and co-host of two other units his friend owns there. He shares the entire story of how he found his first property in Mexico, how he used his personal traveling experience to inform how he ran his rental, and the wild ride that came along with it.




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Green Gate Guest Houses!

This alliterative space is actually not just one property, but multiple! What is SUPER neat about this place is that it’s a former mining community that is being converted and rehabbed into these phenomenal spaces. There’s a farmhouse, a barn house, an actual miner’s house, a log cabin… all over 100 years old.

It’s not something we can really do justice with an instagram caption but here’s what we love:

👉🏼 We love how much the hosts have the story and the history of the property in the forefront, and it’s not something we’ve really seen before.

👉🏼 We love the storytelling of the history of the property and the diversity of the homes of the property. What an amazing way to draw visitors to their space! Head over to their instagram, check out their website, and if you’re in Minnesota, book a stay!

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.
