Hi guys, I made a post on the AirBnB community forums but haven’t had any real response.
I live in a house with two spare rooms; I’ve been letting these out on AirBnB. Currently, each room has its own listing, one single, one double.
I’m considering unlisting the single and then open up the other listing to include the kitchen, living room, and as one thread suggested, have an additional room available for groups of three (and charge per additional person).
I’m concerned I may lose out on bookings however, as the rooms were fairly equally popular, and I’ve obviously had plenty of people travelling by themselves.
I’m not sure what the pros and cons are. If I’m emphasising that it’s room plus kitchen and living room with good TV, I hope that this will mean I can charge more and it’ll attract groups of three, and one way or another it’ll make up for the potential loss of income from the single room that so far has been listed by itself.
For reference, I live in Cumbria, England, not far from Hadrian’s Wall and the Lake District. My place is on the cheap end at around £25 per night for the single and £30 for the double, but I’m gathering more reviews to help me ramp up the price a bit (open to suggestions; I charge £5 cleaning fee at the moment too).
