A how-to on hosting honeymooners


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and whether or not you have been hit by cupid’s arrow, it is impossible to deny that love is in the air this time of year!

As Airbnb hosts however, it is likely that you will meet and greet guests in the mood for love 365 days out of the year – honeymooners. Like all travellers choosing to stay in Aibrnb’s, honeymooners are passionate about unique travel experiences. So why not try to make their stay at your home as unique, memorable and romantic as possible?

1. Put the bubbly on ice

Nothing quite says “romantic getaway” quite like a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for you once you check in! Don’t forget to leave out some champagne flutes – drinking out of your favourite hand-painted mug might kill the mood…

2. Cosy up!

Use warm candles, fluffy pillows and snuggly throws to create a romantic, cosy atmosphere in your home.

3. Make every city ‘the city of love’

While leaving recommendations and guides for your guests is always appreciated, when it comes to Honeymooners, it’s obvious that they are looking for more than just your average getaway. Tailor-make a city guide for your loved-up guests, picking out the most romantic places for people to experience during their stay. Here are our top picks for the Hostmaker cities:

London: channel your inner Bridget Jones and got boating on the Serpentine in Hyde Park – just don’t fall in!

Barcelona: wander through La Rambla and the streets lined end-to-end with open-air markets. Sure to be a delight for all five senses!

Paris: a simple stroll along the Seine, taking in the breathtaking views of the city at night – what could be more romantic?

Rome: take a picnic up to Villa Borghese and enjoy the sunset with some wine and a slice of pizza. Top off the evening with a stroll down to the Spanish Steps and through to the Trevi Fountain.

4. Don’t forget dessert!

Last but not least – leave behind a box of delectable chocolates for your guests to nibble on whilst they sip their champagne. Then, raise a glass to your inevitable five-star review!
