Well, our last Airbnb guest of the season arrives tomorrow. On the whole it’s been a great first season - one listing has been booked almost solid and the other ok, about 50%. The income has been good, we’ve survived a new regulatory process, enjoyed most of our guests and have enough good reviews that it looks as though we may reach Superhost status.
However, we’re completely shattered and are counting the days till the last guest until next May leaves! So I am proposing a toast to all those of you who host all year round … how do you do it? To me you are all truly Super Hosts even if not Superhosts … I know some of you absolutely rely on the income while others see it as a great extra, so may you continue to thrive, your mortgages/rent get paid, your travel subsidised, your kids helped through college, your houses renovated, or whatever your hosting aims are!
I 'll be staying on the forum as we have ideas I want to talk through for next season, but I have to admit I’ll be smiling a bit smugly when I read the next Tale of the Awful Guests … no more till next May!
