i’ve advertised on trustedhousesitters.com for someone to take care of the dogs while we spend the winter in europe (wee hah), and miracle of miracles, i found an airbnb host who is bouncing around doing housesits after selling her house.
so she’s going to be taking over as cohost and running my airbnb as if she were me. she’ll stay in the airbnb as a guest the night before we leave, and again when we get back, and in between she’ll live in our house, walk our dogs, answer emails, take bookings, show people around, and clean/restock.
i’ve offered the cleaning fee per booking, or $100 a week ($60 cleaning fee, mostly weekend bookings). i believe a professional manager would want 30% of the earnings (does anybody know for sure?)
i hope i haven’t gotten in over my head, but it feels like it’ll be okay. does anybody have an idea about what kind of contract i should write up?
