The Madrid Local with a Unique Sense of Style: Meet Sergio

This week we introduce you to Sergio, one of the first hosts to join Houst in Spain, with his top performing property in Madrid’s lively La Latina barrio.

When hosts hand over the keys to their home, they’re trusting us with one of their most valuable possessions. Having designed and renovated his place from scratch, Sergio is no different. He wants every guest to enjoy an unforgettable stay in his home — and the apartment oozes style as a result. It’s one of our trendiest properties in Madrid, boasting exposed brick walls, a tasteful mix of vintage and state of the art furnishings, and even a (totally unique) open shower in the bedroom:

Sergio’s home wasn’t intended for hosting when he bought it three years ago. As a Broadcast Sales Manager for prestigious clients like UEFA Champions League and Formula 1, after a few years of living in his newly renovated apartment, Sergio began to find himself spending more and more time away from home. It was at this point that he started to look for a solution to make the most out of his designer home when he was away.

Since joining Houst, Sergio has particularly impressed by the ongoing support he receives from the local Madrid team. Not only this, but he loves his personal Houst dashboard, which gives him full visibility over bookings, cleans and guests no matter where in the world he is.

By putting his home on Airbnb, Sergio has been able to see firsthand how much guests appreciate his distinct sense of style. “The most rewarding part is reading all the positive reviews travellers write about the apartment which I decorated”, he explains.

A recent glowing guest review certainly supports this: “Sergio’s apartment was clean, modern and gorgeous. Plenty of space to relax, and the shower is truly incredible! The responses from Sergio’s team were always very quick, and accessing the apartment was super simple.”

So what’s next for Sergio?

In 2019, he’s planning a trip to Japan with the money he’s made from hosting his apartment with Houst. Not only does hosting pay his mortgage — but it also allows him to see more of the world!
