Just a very quick update:
So far AirBnB is going well. We’ve had a number of requests and had to decline people who wanted to stay. A family wanted to stay for a week! Which is a bit much. We have a pair of French students staying here and another student coming next week as well. The AirBnB website is not perfect but it’s easy to get your money out and easy to use once you are used to it.
We are not taking the piss with our prices and we are listed at around £30 a night at the moment. I don’t intend to run a hotel, so I think that we can up prices a bit to reduce demand but keep the net profit high. It seems like easy money. 🙂
It’s a funny feeling to have paying guests. My wife and I have both hosted/surfed with couchsurfing but this is a different relationship and more of a commercial relationship.
So far so good.
