Is it all 3 of these?
Kay came to us nearly a year ago after learning that her neighbor friends were hosting with us - and loving it. With a detached studio only used for family and friends, Kay had the ultimate San Diego spot - in the heart of America’s finest city, no less. Within her first weeks, Kay was up and running and absolutely smashing the peak season’s occupancy and reviews.
For instance, Kay takes care of things like making sure the trash and recycling are taken out the way her neighbors would want (as they share bins) or leaving treats for guests, while we handle the time intensive tasks. We cover things like making sure the place is in tip top shape for a same day check out and check in or answering guest inquiries.
“I would not want to do this without the backup and work of Houst… If I did this on my own, I would have to have a day or two between every booking."

2. Sharing her expertise
When hosting with us, your home will have specifics that only you have expertise with. Sometimes our cleaners will need to give specific attention to certain appliances or areas that you know have needed work in the past. This is why Kay "makes friends with the cleaners so they know they can contact me if something needs extra work.” Being able to work through specifics like this together is what has helped Kay’s flawless Airbnb reputation so far. We don’t, however, want to give the impression that your most valuable asset - your time - will be used constantly communicating with us while hosting.
We do all of the time consuming tasks like:
3. Personal touches.
With the help of our hosts like Kay who know how essential “having a good manager to partner with who communicates with the hosts, the cleaning crew and troubleshoots' is, we are lucky enough to work with hosts who go the extra mile, which yields higher reviews and thus, higher occupancy. We are passionate about hosting and love it when our hosts are too.
“The personal touch from an owner is important and makes it more rewarding for me,” and this sure shows in her reviews:
When Kay isn’t going the extra mile, she’s traveling a few miles while using her additional income to visit her infant granddaughters in Washington DC and Durango, Colorado.
We are honored to host with people who free themselves up by working hard, but more importantly by working smart. People who open their homes in order to open opportunities, people like Kay.
