Being an Airbnb host and managing an Airbnb listing takes dedication and commitment, and hosts need to be there for guests.
Hosts need to maintain a good quality Airbnb profile and answer messages quickly to encourage bookings. The home needs to be cleaned, and be spotless for guests. Hosts need to accommodate for check in times and have a solution for any delayed guests. When the hot water goes but hosts are not around, the issue must be attended to quickly – otherwise there will be unhappy guests and negative reviews. Most importantly, hosts need to ensure the guests are having a great stay.
Running a perfect Airbnb listing isn’t easy. So what makes a perfect host?
Although there is no exact science to what factors tick the guest’s boxes, there is one fundamental part of a great holiday let. Perfect management. Airbnb has recently updated their Co-host program, which allows hosts to invite other hosts to help with their usual Airbnb duties. There are 43,000 active listings on Airbnb – and that’s just in London. Hosts have to put more effort into running a great Airbnb than ever before to get guests to choose their home.
Some hosts may find they have no time to run their Airbnb as efficiently as they hoped.
So, some hosts enlist the help of others to help manage their Airbnb. From answering the messages and accepting the booking, to the guest check out. That’s where we come in. Our friendly team has an established portfolio of properties which we co-host or fully manage across London and the South East. Whether you want us to make your listing stand out, answer messages, deal with maintenance, manage bookings or professionally photograph your home – and more. You can choose some or all of these to suit you. We can even help you to achieve Airbnb Superhost status.
We know when it comes to homes, it’s personal. So, you need someone who you can trust.
We offer a range of flexible services where we can co-host your home. Your privacy is important to us, and will be completely safe. We are fully insured, have taken over 3000 bookings, and will never pass on your details to other companies.
With co-hosting, you can still have your own personal touch with the guests, if you want to.
We know all hosts want to have flexibility with their Airbnb, you can be as hands-on or as hands-off as you want. You can still log in to your Airbnb profile when you want, but you will be relieved of the everyday duties that come with hosting – including that 5am check in on a Sunday morning.
