My husband and I decided a few weeks ago that we were going to Airbnb both our 2BR apartment in Brattleboro, VT and our efficiency condo in Dover, VT. Brattleboro is a really cool town in southern VT with lots of great restaurants, art galleries, speciality stores, farms…its wonderful. Dover VT is a ski town with the Mt. Snow ski resort, recently bought by Vail Resorts so now its covered on the EPIC PASS! Woo!
So we are new hosts, with two new listings. The first one (Brattleboro) is going live TONIGHT. The second we are currently living in and renovating (Dover).
We have already gotten a lot of bookings and we don’t have any reviews yet, and I’m pretty nervous about making this work. We are planning to leave the Dover listing in a few weeks to head out on great adventures out West. Obviously, we are hiring a property manager and house cleaners for both units.
But if anyone has any stories, words of wisdom, tips/advice on hosting remotely, I would love to hear it.
Also please send feedback on our listings - The links to both are below. We don’t have photos of the interior of the condo in Dover, but that has not deterred bookings in the least and it actually has a better booking rate than the one we do have photos in!
