Offer a 3-6 month lease for a LTR in the winter. My guess would be that without significant added value or attractions, its hard to get more profit out of an Airbnb because the margin is already tight. The guests and the hosts don’t have much more to give unless you go like an actual resort where people pay for the privileged of going to your destination to pay for more stuff.
I’ve tried vending, offering a full breakfast, offering convenience meals, offering extra amenities like hot tubs, guided tours etc. Guests keep telling me all they care about is the bottom line and they want it cheap. If that stuff won’t entice guests to spend another $3-6 then its not really worth it to put in all the extra effort. Oh I know my guests spend money! I find receipts many times what the room cost. Maybe thats why its hard to get more out of Airbnb, guests see it as a cost center and they just want to minimize that. When you’re dealing with customers like this, for me the margin is pretty narrow so paying high interest on a short term loan would eliminate my profit if it were even 4%.
