How to be a Great Host for Vacation Home Renters

We have put together some easy steps every host can follow to prevent hosting from becoming more of a chore than a reward.

“Some of our most experienced hosts are so dedicated to their guests having an exceptional stay that they’re challenged to find their own time and resources for themselves,” say insiders. “They’re givers and sometimes givers swing too far into that giving activity.”

Determine your goals

Are you hosting primarily to earn money? For companionship? To create more art or share the meals you enjoy preparing? Then it’s important to recognize and feel good about how hosting aligns with and supports these goals. For some Airbnb hosting started as a means to keeping her apartment. She says that initial goal has evolved into being able to provide a great, affordable place to stay in the highly coveted West Village and give guests the opportunity to live like a New Yorker. “I’m proud to be able to share that.”

Surround yourself with resources

And by resources, host means those you can “call in a pinch” when, for instance, “you need to get keys to someone at 2 p.m. when you’re working in an office across town.” This includes a community of friends, like-minded neighbors, a cleaning service, or a few people who are willing to work part time or per diem, barter or take payment for cleaning, key hand-off and greeting when you are unable to do it yourself.
