Being a great host is a full-time job and comes with a lot of responsibility. From personal meet and greets to helping guests check out and the cleaning of your property after they’ve left, it can be a logistical hustle. That doesn’t even take into account dealing with maintenance issues and the time spent communicating with prospective guests that short term rental providers need to put in during the lead up to bookings. If you want to keep your calendar full and are striving to increase your occupancy rates, then there’s little opportunity to slack off or let standards slide.
But even “Superhosts” are entitled to a holiday every once in a while. It’s an opportunity to take a break and maybe even get a little inspiration as to what other Airbnb hosts and short term rental home-owners are doing with their space. But for many hosts, they’re worried about passing their duty of care onto a complete stranger or even a well-known family member at the risk of guest satisfaction reducing (and poor reviews).
So how can you escape the everyday hustle of hosting without losing guests, getting poor reviews or having your occupancy rate drop? There are plenty of property management and cleaning companies who specialise in full-service management and weekly cleaning of furnished apartments, as well as providing security and safety to give you peace of mind (and privacy) when you’re away.
