When we opened our B&B, we signed with a few online sites to do the websites and all the advertising. We also set up our own website. So far we have had a few guests from our website and a few from Vacation Rentals By Owner, or VRBO. The majority leader of our guests have found us on Airbnb.
Airbnb is a fun site to search. In fact, I told a friend about it and she called me and complained, because she had been on the site for hours, having way too much fun. Anyone with a room or a trailer out back or even an air mattress on the floor can list what they offer and what they want to charge for guests. If you think it is a good deal, a connection is made.
In our case, we are one of the many commercial sites that use Airbnb to drive business to our B&B or vacation rental.
We recently got an email that congratulated us on achieving Superhost status. This means Airbnb places this symbol at the bottom of our page.
It shows that we have a minimum of 10 guests a year, we have fast responses to inquiries and get good reviews from our guests. So far we have had only great reviews. On the otherhand, we have had only great guests!
So if you are looking for a place to stay, from a REAL bed and breakfast to an apartment that is used just for short term rentals or just a spare room in a house, check out Airbnb. And look for the Superhost designation. It is your assurance of a fine experience.
