Hi. New the forum, new to AirBnB. So many questions. Here’s the précis.
Ex-UK smalltime landlord (AST). Tenants vacated property after 6 years in August 2019. Refurbed the property from top to tail. £36,000 later, we have a pristine little terraced ‘workers cottage’.
Newly furnished, well equipped and nicely appointed. Light contemporary feel based around mid-19thC little house. Three beds (king, double, single, Emma memory foam mattress), landscaped garden with dining area and private parking for 2 vehicles.
I’ve worked solidly on the place for nearly 2 years. It’s pretty dear to my heart. What I’d really like is someone to come along and validate my work. However.
Q1. I think the property is worth £150 a night, it will comfortably accommodate 4, it’s pristine and has a nice little garden area and parking. AirBnB prices tell me this is quite expensive. I think I’m providing quality accommodation. Who would agree or disagree?
Q2. Because the property is expensive, I have the idea that IB might be an option on the basis that a minimum 3 night stay would cost around £450 plus service fees. That will be some kind of filter. What I want, is guests who will appreciate and enjoy the house. Or perhaps I’ll get no interest at all. Any comments please?
Many thanks, Steve.
