Airbnb Hosts Hanging Out in the Kitchen

Our Experiences at the 2021 Vacation Rental Managers Association International Conference in San Antonio, Texas

We’re still reeling from our first in-person conference post COVID. It was great to spend time among so many great and like-minded people at the Vacation Rental Managers Association International Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Listen for a rundown of our time there, from tips on how to get what you want out of people more effectively to how to handle negative reviews.




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Mountain Lake Bungalow!

This beautiful bungalow is located in the Catskills and hosted by Melinda and Matilda. They do an amazing job highlighting their outdoor spaces in their listing, and this place is all about the outdoors with truly wonderful views. But their indoor design is impeccable too! The decor is inspired by their native country, Sweden.

We are heading into the fall and winter, with so many still working from home, Melinda and Matilda let you know that their space is WFH-friendly, even going so far as to list their wifi speed. There are desks in each of the bedrooms (one has an amazing view)! They also have an adjustable desk for those who like to stand while working, and a printer!

If you have a little extra room in your budget, making your space WFH-friendly (or homeschool friendly) is a great way to encourage people to come stay with you!

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.
