5 Useful Tips To Get That 5 Star Review on AirBnB

 

A lot of local families and individuals move out of their homes for the weekend and rent to guests via Air BnB. This is a fantastic idea and easy revenue, as guests for the Goodwood events expect to pay a higher price over that period.

 

However, guests will expect a certain standard- and if you want to achieve those 5 star reviews every time- here are our top tips.

 

1.    Be honest about your space

 

How many bedrooms are there? How many people does it sleep? Is it okay to bring pets? Will guests have the entire place to themselves or will they be sharing the house with you/your family members? Guests like privacy, especially if that is whats advertised. If you are renting a room and are a very sociable person- say so! I often speak to owners who love to put the world to rights over a glass of wine with their guests. Other prefer to keep to themselves. Mention this in your listing- if it’s important to you, it will be important to your guests.

 

Is your house a bit dated and in need of a lick of paint? Or are you situated right next to a busy main road? Don’t over sell. Be practical, modest and guests will not be expecting a luxury apartment. Instagram filters are tempting to make spaces appear light and brighter but remember to be honest about your space and guests will give you the review you want.
