There are lots of great suggestions here. I’d like to add my own to the mix.
There are many ways to manage your listing and the calendar. It is possible to require weekend stays to be more than one night, block off certain days of the week, adjust settings so that you automatically have a day or more between guests. Because I prefer long term guests, the farther out dates have a required 20 night stay, e.g. I’ve settings for EACH month between September and November to require 20 nights. If longer stays don’t get booked, I update settings to free up weeks or nights for shorter stays for the current, or almost current month. I’ve found that it isn’t a good idea to “set it and forget it,” but rather a continuing strategy of noting the season, the availability of other listings, comparable prices, amenities, etc., helps keep my rooms filled about 80%+ of the time.
…And I don’t iron sheets, but I do try to get them out of the dryer and onto the bed as quickly as possible.
