A big part of the experience with a guest staying is the bathroom. Having a very clean bathroom is crucial to any stay. When it comes to the bathroom, less is more similar to the bedroom. You want to provide everything that guests expect, and to have a good experience, but don't want to go overboard and start cutting into your returns or make it harder for you to clean.
When it comes to the bedroom furniture for Airbnb, less is more. It is a real detractor when there's just a walkway around the bed because the room is full of furniture that's not needed as a guest like a chest of drawers. At the same time, there are things that are great to have both functionally and that makes for a good listing.
In part one of this hosting guidebook, we're going to go over the principals of getting the bed setup. Mainly geared towards a spare bedroom in your living house, but most of the same guidelines apply in most places for hosting in general.
No doubt by now, you've heard of Airbnb. If you're unfamiliar with what it is, the quick explanation is that Airbnb is a website where people can rent bedrooms or houses to stay instead of staying at hotels. Airbnb is oftentimes a much better fit for guests than hotels. It's a great way for hosts to make an income off their property, potentially more than if they rented it out traditionally long term.
