Short-Term Residential Accommodation (STRA) offers an opportunity for travellers to get a “home away from home” accommodation, authentic experience due to interior and atmosphere offered by STRA, and immersion in local culture by showing around the non-touristic places of the city, learning how to cook traditional food and so on.
Think about what you want to get out of hosting and share those expectations with your neighbourhood / community.
Share things like where you’re from, what you do for work, what you love to do in your free time, and what are your favourite foods.
Always remember that including the right content and images in your listing is key to attracting more guests.
Photos also play a huge role in capturing travellers’ interest. Think about the best and most appealing quality of your listing.
A great place to begin your pricing journey is to browse similar listings. Look for places in a comparable neighbourhood.
A good listing description shows potential guests that you’re passionate about your home and also lets them picture themselves there.
Responding to guests promptly is important, so choose to accept or decline a reservation request as soon as possible.
A clean, uncluttered space can make an instant impression and set the tone for a guest’s entire stay.
Go to the platform’s host portal to choose your preferred way to get paid: direct deposit, PayPal, or other options.
When writing your review be sure to be honest, thoughtful, and detailed. Guests will also write you a review.
