I’ve tried searching forum and google but I can’t seem to find the answer. Sorry if this sounds spacey, I’m extremely sleep deprived thanks to my toddler!
We’re planning to take a holiday in January next year and it would be great if I can find a long term guest for that month, I’m happy to make the cost pretty cheap just to pay a chunk of the mortgage and not just have the house sitting there doing nothing.
Question is, I normally charge a $20 cleaning fee (so so low and I really should raise it), after a 1 month stay I don’t think it would be unreasonable to charge $100-$150aud?
I can’t seem to find a way to have one cleaning fee in general, and an increased one for this block?
Edit to add: Probably more important than the cleaning fee would be cancellation policy! Can I make it moderate or strict, when I’m flexible the rest of the time?
Next question, I rent my upper level of house, which is fully self contained with separate entry.
Would I be crazy to rent my downstairs level (where we reside) in a separate listing? Are people funny about sharing with strange airbnb guests instead of the host?
My parents live next door and will be in charge, will keep an eye on the place and can attend to any issues.
