Need some thoughts here. We have an Airbnb that has been quite successful in and of itself; but we’re trying to figure out the next challenge. We have a separate workshop space, about 1,000 sq foot, that we’re converting to an entertainment space. It will have an arcade, game area, and gym on the bottom floor. We will have some good equipment like the peloton bike, in wall resistance trainer, etc. On the second floor will be a movie theater with concession stand.
We’re building this for our own family, but we don’t really see a reason not to allow guests to use it as well, especially the gym portion. Here’s some of the questions we’re struggling with:
- Does Airbnb have a means to charge a “a la carte” for add-ons like use of a gym?
- Does it make sense to charge a small upcharge to use that space? If so, what’s reasonable?
Our thinking is that guests who wouldn’t use it wouldn’t want it automatically included, but guests would want to use it would likely be Ok with a reasonable upcharge.
All thoughts and ideas are appreciated!
