How to manage an Airbnb remotely
Airbnb is a great way to make extra money, especially when you're on vacation. But it can also be tricky to manage your Airbnb remotely and get everything done. Here are some tips for making sure that your rental goes smoothly, even if you're not at home:
Set your preferences
To manage your Airbnb, you'll need to set your preferences. This can be done in a few ways:
- You can choose what days and times of day are best for you. If you're busy with work or classes, don't want to be bothered by guests, or just want some peace and quiet--then that's fine!
- If there are specific things about other renters' behavior that bother you (for example they're late), it might be helpful to make this known when setting up the reservation process so that other hosts won't book them again in the future.
Communicate with hosts
Once you've decided on your home, it's time to start communicating with hosts. You'll need to do this through Airbnb's messaging system and can use this as a way of keeping track of any problems or issues that arise during your stay in the apartment.
The best way to respond to reviews is by providing feedback directly through their platform, which means that if someone leaves a negative review, you should contact them directly via the email address or phone number provided on the listing page. This will help ensure that they know why they were dissatisfied with their stay at your place--and if there was something wrong with it--so they won't think twice about writing another one!
If someone has complained about something during their stay (like noise), then we suggest sending them an email letting them know what was going on while they were gone so they don't feel like anything bad happened while they were away!
Update your profile and photos
When you first sign up for an Airbnb listing or at vacation rental sites, the host will ask you to fill out a profile. This is where they can see your name, location, and photos. You should also make sure that there are no spelling mistakes in your description or other details about who is renting out their home.
If possible, try and get some extra photos uploaded so that potential guests can see what their stay will look like before booking it!
Respond to reviews
Responding to reviews is an important part of being a good host. It's also one of the most overlooked parts of managing your Airbnb remotely, which is why we've put together this guide for you.
- Respond as soon as possible after receiving a review: If someone writes a negative review about you on Airbnb or TripAdvisor, don't ignore it! You should be able to respond within 24 hours or less--if not sooner--so that customers know their feedback has been heard and acted upon by the owner/operator of their home/vacation rental property (hopefully).
- Respond with respect: Always treat every guest who stays there with respect; no matter how much money they spend during their stay at your place, it doesn't make them any less human than yourself or anyone else who works with us behind-the-scenes at Airbnb HQ every day."
- Respond to reviews.
- Respond to requests.
- Manage problems and issues with hosts, including those with your property that you haven't been able to address directly yet. * Set your preferences for communicating with hosts, such as whether or not you want a response from them right away or only when they contact you first (this can help prevent confusion).
