Hi everyone, this past month my husband and I took a trip through Europe to visit our daughter. I’m a Superhost from Victoria BC. We stayed at various Air BNBs across the trip & wow what a difference some things make. I thought I would share some of what we encountered:
- never under estimate the value of a good towel, meaning good material, good size and clean! Trying to dry yourself with a threadbare face towel is a bit much
- spend money on pillows, a flat old pillow can ruin the sleep of a weary traveller. We had this complaint at 80% of our stays. Give 2 adults 4 pillows, and if you host a lot, get new ones every 6 months. Honestly I would have overlooked a lot for a good pillow at the end of the day!
- if you list something in your description make sure it’s true
-have garbage cans in the bathroom
-update your guide book, it’s so nice to read recommendations and know there’s a grocery store or local pub nearby
-check in instructions in advance, the stress of not knowing how to get into a place the day before sucks especially if you are relying on wifi
-over the door hooks are awesome!
-having a plug in adapter is such a nice touch, better yet, install USB plug ins. It’s a small expense but SO appreciated by your guest who’s travelling with a minimum of 2 devices each
-consider the lighting, try and get ready/shave in your space & see how it looks
We had an amazing time & met some great hosts cheers to Air BNB and the hosts that have those little extras, it makes a difference!
