Mastering Short-Term Rental Furnishings with Minoan: Free for Hosts

In this episode, we’re thrilled to have Sage Nathan, a seasoned hospitality enthusiast and key player at Minoan, as our guest. Sage is a self-proclaimed “boutique geek” with a passion for hospitality. Sage started her career in eCommerce and retail and spent over two years as an omni-channel buyer at Jet.com (later acquired by Walmart in 2016 for $3.3B) where she worked alongside Minoan’s founder, Marc. She then left Jet.com/WMT and joined Minoan in 2020. 

Minoan, a platform we faithfully use for our short-term rentals, allows hosts to furnish their spaces with high-quality items from over 160 brands, all at amazing discounts. Minoan takes on the “unsexy” sides of ordering like tracking, customer service, etc. so hosts can focus on what they do best – hosting! And the best part is, it’s completely free to use! 

In this episode Sage will be sharing insights on how to maximize the capabilities of Minoan and new features on the platform, revealing how cohosts and even short-term rental designers can use the platform to optimize their furnishing needs. We’ll also dive deep into the current popular buys among hosts, like the best-selling mattresses, linens, and rugs. Whether you’re a veteran host or just starting out, Sage’s behind-the-scenes insight and hosting hot tips are sure to help you streamline your processes and create the best experience for guests. So, tune in as we explore how you can optimize your guest’s experience through smart furnishing with Sage from Minoan.

It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Pepin Forest Tree House😍

This little 480 sq. foot tree house is so cute!

In their listing and in their social media, they show a lot of night photos, which really showcases all the windows in the structure and the super cute outdoor spaces…. especially that hot tub!

As as host, you have to know what the shining part of your property is, and how you can sell it to potential guests. We definitely would love enjoy a summer evening stay here!

So often we take pictures during the day, but always be on the lookout for ways you want to display your property.

Oh… and those green kitchen cabinets? LOVE. 😍

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.
