Maria pays off her vacation with her home

What does Maria, a part-time Airbnb host and avid traveller, have to say about HostGenius?

“I have always left Vancouver for the summer months and my home stayed empty while I was away. During the winter, I had vacationed and used Airbnb for my stay in Sicily, New York, and Toronto. I then started to ponder that it would be a great idea for me to find someone that could help me host my home while I was in Europe for the summer.

I looked up a few possibilities to have someone responsible to help me host my listing. I set up multiple interviews, and after the process, I felt more comfortable with the HostGenius team. The suggestions they gave on preparing my home and their knowledge of the market helped me in deciding to sign with HostGenius.

Once I had made my decision to sign with HostGenius, I worked with Alex on preparing my listing. We talked about what should be written, what dates my place would be available for and at what price point. He guided me through the Airbnb site to show me how I can view all the progress reports in Airbnb’s backend. He organized to have a photographer come in and take professional photos of my home. I decided to do a trial run and release a few dates prior to long term departure just to feel out the process and I was happy that all went well. HostGenius was communicating with the guests as soon as they made their bookings, providing information on their arrival and departure, information on what was available in the neighbourhood as well as the city! They coordinated with the cleaners and had everything taken care of. Everything worked out seamlessly! I was confident that I had made the right decision using HostGenius. I was away enjoying my summer with my boys and family while making extra income, allowing others to visit Vancouver and use my home for their vacation.

I would highly recommend using HostGenius if you have considered renting your home for the short term!”
