hi, just thoughts: first pic is too dark, i’d remove it - only keep the sunny pics.also add more room pics - felt like it was selling more the town than ur room. looks nice though )…do put pics of the bathroom and maybe the hall of the house? merry xmas!


hi, i think u have lighting problems on ur pics - pic 3 looked good - the others look ever exposed - and puts u off…also the outside pics (google/earth) and backyard door…looks a bit strange…id tike them out - i like the front of the house )…and would do more pics like no.3…just ideas. merry xmas!


looks nice - get rid of pic 2 though…garden looks a bit bare…really have v little to say - maybe put pics of a coffee and open book? people like to see it ‘used’…love the light. merry xmas!


hi, i’d put more plants and nick nacks…seems a bit bare…also no sheets/pillow cases on the bed? …all the best with it. merry xmas!



Thank you! It’s been greatly updated since July when these pics were taken. I’ve arranged for new ones in Jan.


Hi there! Since I’m new here my responses are limited but just wanted to say thanks for the feedback! I totally agree on the photos, I think I’m going to invest in the professional photography ($88.) A professional could do a much better job of making the windows an asset instead of a photo detractor! I think I did go overboard on the “Andover” stuff (did I make it clear-there’s booze here?) Anyone have any rave reviews on Airbnb photography (or the opposite?)


Oh my WORD! It’s GORGEOUS! The decorating! The views! And the little things like the tea and the bread…I’m stealing from you for sure!


Thanks for the input. I will try to fix it.


I had some pics taken by a professional who has done Airbnb photos. He was staying with me for another local job but I didn’t arrange for the photos via Airbnb. He just offered because he’s a nice guy. I like the pictures and they make the place look great. They also make it look bigger than it is. That enlarging effect is evident in stpetersburgs pictures. I’ve only had one explict complaint (and that was from a fellow host). I honestly don’t think I’d pay for professional photos. Just use pro tips (like good light, wider view, lower angle) and the edit function. I’ve seen lots of listings with mediocre pictures and 100s of reviews.


You know what they say-imitation is the best form of flattery!


))) ill have the chocolate one?


I’ll try one of the mini quiche tarts (if that’s what they are). Thank you.


Hey! Maybe you chocolate/quiche lovers can be a maiden voyage in some sort of “house swap”-wouldn’t that be fun? My current guest is from Florida and she doesn’t usually rent out her home when she’s not there (nor have I ever, thus far.) She said there’s a different service for house swapping but the devil I know (AirBnb, ha ha) does have its merits. She also asked to book an extra day and offered me cash. It felt so awkward to tell her I only go through AirBnb after Mr. Smelly Boots-I didn’t want her to feel I don’t trust her (after you’ve colored together you get to know someone :wink: ). Should I send her a special offer so that it costs her a little less, to save her the Air service fee? How much would be a “nice gesture” on a $65 room? I mean, she’s a Superhost so she must “get it” (my position.) Any way-happy holidays everyone-great chatting!


WOW!!! Loooooved it! (Is that you in the charcoal portrait over the desk?) The listing really is superb. It brought a question to mind as I read through that I’m going to revisit on my own listing. I say “Andover” in my listing name, but I think I should add “MA” just to be sure to nail it all down for someone who’s viewing my listing who hasn’t necessarily gotten there via search-as I came across yours, loved it, and had to poke around a little to realize that it’s Seattle (now on my bucket list!) I’m near a very famous private high school in Andover, MA (Phillips Academy) and threw it out there in a post this morning wondering whether anyone has used AirBnb to more or less “house swap.” One recent guest came from HAWAII to visit their child at school - ALOHA second honeymoon! Thoughts anyone?


Hi Anna. Are you no longer listing? I couldn’t get there from here :confused:


Have level will travel! I am available for a free consult where I go around twitching the curtains, smoothing the coverlets and triangle-izing the toilet paper rolls. My schedule is wide open! ;- and let me know if you have any business in Andover, MA! (You’re not by any chance putting a kid through high school for roughly $90K/year are you?)
