Five star service (How to improve customer satisfaction and maximise profits)

Dear Hosts,

I am in the process of setting up a new company, the initial idea of which is to make host’s life easier and manage your property for you. The sample offering at the moment is:

Basic package

  •                     Guest check in/out meet and greet services
    
  •                     Cleaning services before check in and after check outs
    
  •                     Deposit management
    
  •                     24/7 support line (regarding any issues with the property)
    

Premium package - Basic package plus

  • (hotel-like bathroom supplies (branded shampoos/towel sets/robes/complimentary snacks/tea/coffee)
  •                         airport pick up and drop off
    
  •                         housekeeping - 3 complimentary cleaning (1hr clean)   
    
  •                         laundry on demand (customer pays)
    

VIP Package- Premium package plus

  • 24/7 concierge services (event/restaurant bookings/tickets reservations/guest lists)
  • room service (food delivery)
  • up to 5 complimentary drives (personal driver)
  • SPA on home services (50£ complimentary voucher)
  • Local GYM access (5 complimentary entries)

Example of Pricing:

Basic package (10% of rent)
Premium (10% of rent plus fixed fee 180£)
VIP (10% of rent plus 500£ fixed )

It would be great to know what kind of services would you like to be offered ? Initial thoughts and feedback on the business idea. Ideally I want to build a product that customers want and need. Any ideas/criticism is more than welcomed!

Thank you! It’d be interesting to know what people on the market think…

I love the idea! I only have one AirBnb (my basement apt) but I’m trying to develop an add-on and offer my husband as the concierge. Both my husband and I are retired military, I work and he’s fully retired. He has lots of free time and wouldn’t mind doing night tours of DC. I know when the actual hosts interact with the guests it creates a more personal experience for the guests.

We’ve already sold our first upgrade / add-on package! My husband asks the guest to drive their own vehicle and he acts as passenger / navigator / tour guide. They spend 4 hours seeing the DC sights at night (so beautiful and different) with a local and get to discover all the non-tourist off the beaten path spots. He also offers typical tourist type itineraries. This add-on costs $85 and he’s out about 4 hours. My husband walks and burns calories, we add a more personalized tour experience (happy guest - happy life) and get paid in the process! I think it’s a win-win.

He also offers complimentary cab calls, restaurant reservations, auto detail services (outside their very own guest house) etc.

Here is my BNB listing:

and my additional website for outside promotion (bear in mind it’s not done yet).

Tell me what you think. This idea is still in development but I’d appreciate your feedback.
