Room to Spare – Room to Share
If you have a spare bedroom in your home, you are nearly set to go. Folks on AirBnB are generally looking for a home experience. This is very different from a hotel. Hotels are expensive, offers services and serve general public of customers.
You, as a host, share a space with someone as a guest in your home. You are offering your space as a niche in itself, not as an “at your service”, “at your beckoned call” kind of business. You decide upon the privileges the guests enjoy such as use of kitchen, living room, pool, yard, etc. The guest must agrees to your space and “house rules” in order to book it.
Some spaces have private entrances, others share a bath room. Some have a view others are basic. A benefit over staying in a hotel, is that the guest can likely find an AirBnB room in the neighborhood that they are visiting, working or touring in.
Even if your space has some quirks, it may still be desirable as the guests are often looking for something unique. With a hygienic space and a new set of linens you can be in business.
