How to become a great host
Elsa is an experienced Airbnb host. Now she has some experience as an Naturistbnb host as well. She has put together some simple tips what you should consider to avoid hosting from to be more of a chore than a reward.
“Some of the most enthusiastic hosts are so dedicated to make sure their guests are having an exceptional stay, that they won’t have anymore time and resources for themselves,” says Elsa. “They’re givers and sometimes that means you can go too far in giving activity.”
What are you looking from hosting?
Are you hosting for money? To meet new people? Share the meals you enjoy preparing? Have possibility for social nudism? It is good to recognise your hosting ambitions and feel good about how hosting match you goals. For Elsa, hosting started simply as a means to keeping her house. Her initial goal has evolved into being able to provide a great, affordable place to stay in the prime are and give guests the opportunity to live like a local together with likeminded people. “I’m proud to be able to help people to achieve their travelling objectives.”

By resources, she means those you can call when, “you need to take care of checkin to someone at 4 pm. when you’re working in an office across the town.” This includes a friends, nice neighbours,or a few people who are willing to work part time on call.
- Make sure your place stays in good shape by cleaning it throughout after every guest. I may become a tauntning task, so it is good idea to look out for cleaning service. Remember you can add a one time cleaning fee in your pricing to cover you costs.
- Checkin and checkout help. Flights may get delayed and rush hours may ruin the perfect schedule. Guests may come in and out in odd hours. Many times it is difficult to adjust yours and guests schedules perfectly. It would be good to have a backup plan hand over keys and welcome guests. One excellent service is a Sharebox.
