Airbnb is an online platform that provides property owners in Exeter a way to rent their properties as vacation lets. Short-term accommodation is in high demand. Increasingly, travellers look for more personal hospitality. The Airbnb experience is sought after by holiday goers and business people alike. With Airbnb, hosts can rent out an entire house, a room or even a couch for visitors to sleep in. This flexibility means guests can often find an Airbnb for cheaper than a hotel, making it a popular service for students and young people.
Investing in an Airbnb property Exeter can be a lucrative opportunity for property owners. Exeter is a popular tourist destination full of stunning architecture and vibrant culture. As a student town, it has great public transport. There is reasonable parking all over the city, though, if you choose to drive instead. There are trendy restaurants and bars all over, many of which are within walking distance of potential vacation rental properties.
If you choose to go the route of investing in an Airbnb property Exeter, it’s important to know how to make the most of it. Firstly, to attract as many guests as you can, it helps to create a unique and eye-catching listing. If you or someone you know is good at photography, this can help make your listing stand out and encourage Airbnb users to click on your property.
You also need to pay attention to detail in the property itself. Ensuring the bedrooms, kitchen and even the bathroom are well decorated and maintained will make travellers more likely to leave you a good review. Even when they’re paying bargain prices, today’s guests expect a taste of luxury away from home.
It can also help to offer guests some information about the local area, to help them make the most of their trip. One of the things we suggest to new hosts is writing a quick guide to local history and beautiful sights, and some recommendations of good cafes and places to eat that are nearby. Properties that cater to families in particular see a huge benefit from little information packets like this!
It’s also important to keep your property clean. The comfort of your guests hinges on the bedroom and bathroom being clean and tidy. If you live too far from Exeter and don’t have easy access to your property, you can partner with a service like SevenStays who can take full care of your Airbnb property Exeter.
Amenities like a shower, fridge, towels and toiletries are important to clean and maintain on a regular basis. Even these little things can make guests have a better opinion of the host, and lead to better reviews, which boost your performance on the Airbnb site.
