We are located in a popular tropical beach location in Queensland, Australia. We have two bedrooms in our house which we have been renting out via AirBnB for the past 6 months.
We have had 40 visits in that time and our room rate has been around $40 to $50 a night. All of our guests except two have been in the 20 to 35 age group.
The two bedrooms share a common wall and have windows onto a back garden. We only have one bathroom in our house and we have been thinking of building a single ensuite outside the guest rooms that can be shared by those guests from each of the two bedrooms.
Here is the plan
How do you think that this will be received by guests assuming that we can solve the dual access issue so that guests from Room 1 don’t turn up when Room 2 is using the bathroom?
Would guests be prepared to pay more per room night for this more convenient (but shared) bathroom experience? If so, how much more?
Our guest profile to date would suggest that people over 35 are less inclined to book with us because they don’t have their own bathroom. But I guess this doesn’t really solve that problem.
