I’m a prospective Airbnb host (I use Airbnb as a guest as well) and am considering how best to go about it. There are two options:
I have a spacious two-bedroomed flat and travel often so there are times when I would propose to offer the whole flat (probably as a one-bed though, with the smaller room locked so I can clear my clutter/personal stuff away. I have stayed at properties where the host has done this and found it to be fine.).
However, as I have two rooms, it is also perfectly possible for me to host while I’m home too. Instead of the other room being locked, I’d be in it.
Is this possible to do on Airbnb? Effectively listing the same property but two different availability types? Or do I need to pick one type and stick with that - i.e. only rent when I’m away or only rent when I’m home.
