Simplify Ordering & Save on Furnishing Your STR with Minoan

Shopping for your property never gets old. It’s not just about doing it as quickly or cheaply as possible—it’s about putting a piece of yourself and your style into your short-term rental. But while the shopping experience might be fun, there are plenty of parts that aren’t—from seeing the price tag at the end of it all, to juggling tracking and deliveries across multiple brands, and more.

Marc is a self-proclaimed boutique geek and is passionate about the future of retail. After spending nearly 6 years working at Jet.com (acquired by Walmart), he quickly realized that the best product experiences don’t happen on screens or shelves—they happen in real moments of use “in the wild.” 

Marc founded Minoan to help hosts create, and capitalize on, rich moments in their homes, save money on everything they need to buy, and spend a fraction of the time on the unsexy things that come along with ordering. Minoan turns your properties into shoppable experiences where guests can order the items they love from your stay, and you make some extra income in the process. We discuss how using Minoan can turn the process of furnishing your rental into a win-win-win for everyone involved.
