5 façons simples pour que vos voyageurs Airbnb se sentent comme à la maison

Héberger chez vous des voyageurs Airbnb est une chose, mais faire en sorte qu’ils se sentent vraiment comme à la maison, en est une autre – sans parler de ce qui vous fera gagner des commentaires 5*! Ne vous découragez pas. L’hébergement sur Airbnb ne doit pas être une corvée, et seulement quelques petites astuces peuvent faire la différence entre un voyageur heureux et un voyageur mécontent. Nous avons rédigé une liste de 5 façons simples, mais efficaces, pour que vos voyageurs gardent le sourire (et pour que les commentaires élogieux sur votre appartement vous donnent le sourire aussi!). Si cela vous semble trop compliqué, il y a des agences de gestion d’appartements Airbnb qui prendront soin de ces petites détails à votre place.

  • Assurez un accueil chaleureux

La première chose dont un voyageur a besoin après avoir posé sa valise, c’est une bonne tasse de café. Et qu’est-ce qui pourrait être plus ennuyeux après un long vol que de ne pas trouver ni de café, ni de sucre? Vous n’êtes pas obligés de fournir à vos voyageurs Airbnb ni du café, ni du sucre (ou encore du papier toilette ou du gel douche), mais souvent ces petits détails peuvent faire une énorme différence.

  • Donnez à votre appartement l’allure d’un nid douillet

Lorsque vous vous demandez ce qui ferait plaisir à un voyageur, il vous suffira de vous mettre à sa place. Pourquoi ont-ils choisi Airbnb plutôt qu’un hôtel? Ils ont probablement préféré l’atmosphère chaleureuse et cosy d’un vrai appartement au lieu d’une chambre d’hôtel stérile, c’est pourquoi rendre votre appartement attirant (et digne d’Instagram!) avant de quitter les lieux, c’est un excellent moyen de donner une première bonne impression. Disposez des petits objets qui révèlent votre personnalité, et décorez les chambres avec des couvertures, des tapis et des coussins – c’est ce qui manque dans les hôtels, et qui donnera envie aux voyageurs de revenir.

  • Wifi, wifi, wifi

Que la décoration de votre appartement soit digne d’Instagram c’est très bien, mais imaginez la frustration d’un voyageur qui, sur le point d’utiliser leur filtre préféré, se rend compte qu’il n’y a pas de Wifi disponible? #pascool. Ecrivez votre mot de passe en haut du manuel de votre appartement, et vérifiez-le une dernière fois avant de quitter les lieux.

  • Amusez-les

Alors que les voyageurs auront probablement déjà une longue liste de choses à faire pendant leur séjour, sous les conseils avisés de leurs amis, il vaut mieux penser aux soirées qu’ils décideraient de passer à l’appartement. Proposer une sélection de DVD, de jeux de société et des livres pour qu’ils passent du bon temps, c’est quelque chose à laquelle pas tous les hôtes Airbnb pensent. Mais c’est une attention que les voyageurs apprécieront beaucoup, et qui fera de vous un hôte noté 5 * , avec si peu d’effort de votre part.

  • Les choyer

Après avoir énoncé tous les avantages de Airbnb par rapport aux hôtels, il y a tout de même une chose que les hôtels assurent toujours: une bonne nuit de sommeil. Leurs draps sont toujours fraîchement lavés et leurs lits sont faits à la perfection. Et si vous avez de la chance, leurs serviettes sont moelleuses aussi. C’est un sentiment que les invités partagent entre eux, et ils remarquent tout de suite si votre propre linge n’est pas à la hauteur. Si vous ne voulez pas faire face aux dépenses et aux corvées d’acheter et de laver les draps avant et après chaque séjour, faites appel à un service de gestion Airbnb qui offre également une location de linge impeccable.

5 conseils pour décorer votre appartement Airbnb

Have you ever heard that appearances can be misleading? Well, your future Airbnb travelers do not agree.

  1. Try a coat of fresh paint

This is probably the easiest and most affordable way to improve the appearance of a room – the color of the walls influences the entire energy of your apartment. Neutral tones are ideal for highlighting your personal touches, without the risk of disturbing travelers. However, if you want to dare, some bright colors from Farrow & Ball, such as Citron No. 74 and St Giles Bleue No. 280, are a good idea to give your space a whole new dimension.

  1. Unroll the carpet

It is important that your new apartment looks inhabited, but also renovated – after all, this is what adds the charm that the Airbnb traveler expects, when he avoids at all costs the hotel. A carpet can be an essential element in any living space, as an accessory next to other furniture, with a touch of comfort. And boldly patterned rugs are also an easy way to give style to a room.

  1. Dare the art

Artworks are another infallible way to add color and charm to a space otherwise without personality – this gives peps and attracts the eye of travelers. Choose one or two key colors from your room, and look for works of art with these same tones. The artwork should sublimate the room, not damage it, so do not opt ​​for Andy Warhol in your chic country apartment. And do not forget to hang them centered, at eye level.

  1. Shopping

We are experts in apartment makeover (see our Pinterest if you do not believe us!), And we found that in the most unexpected places you can find the best objects of interior decoration. At Zara there are some nice little tables, eBay can buy rare pearls dating back to the middle of the century, and Etsy is the ideal site for posters and unusual photos. When shopping for small items for your apartment, do not rule out a store before you have a look – you never know what you can fall on, and what this item might inspire.

  1. Take your time

We have already spoken of the fact that your apartment must give the impression of being inhabited, cozy and comfortable, in spite of its renovated look. A good way to get an authentic decor is to allow your apartment to evolve over time. If you decorate a space little by little, adding only the objects for which you have a favorite, the style will be much more attractive, without it making false (artificial?). Your Airbnb photos will have an authentic side and it will make travelers even more want to book.

Quelques conseils pour optimiser votre stratégie des prix sur Airbnb

Conrad Hilton (founder of Hilton hotel chain) used to say, « It takes three things for a successful business – location, location, location. » And it seems that what was valid for hotels 70-80 years ago, applies today to Airbnb …

There are of course many more factors to consider as a host for Airbnb to maximize and increase your income. Beyond good pricing, you can also further optimize your Airbnb home experience – or you can let the experts take care of it.

Here are a few tips:

The location

Just like for a hotel, your location is one of the determining factors for your pricing. And as a host, you need to be realistic about your expectations. It is obvious that an apartment on the heights of Montmartre will be more successful than an apartment in the vicinity of Bercy. However, the location is relative depending on the context. If you are located right next to the Palais des Sports, and Beyoncé is in concert on a weekend, you could set a higher rate at that time than during a weekend in normal times.

seasonality

Our clients are attracted to our services because we maximize rates and therefore their income, while guaranteeing easy access to their apartment when needed. The summer period is a classic example where Paris is driven by tourists and hotels are complete, so this is the right time to put your apartment on Airbnb and potentially receive an annual rent in just 120 days.

Evaluation

What your last travelers thought of you is exactly what your future travelers think you are. It is essential to make sure that they have a memorable stay so that those you are going to stay have the certainty of enjoying your apartment. At Hostmaker we improve their experience by quickly answering their questions, by recruiting our own cleaning team and our own Parisian and sparkling reception team to welcome your travelers.

Deadline for implementation

There is an ideal delay in receiving the best bookings. On average, the best bookings in terms of prices are made between 30 and 40 days before arrival. Knowing this deadline gives you ample time to maximize your income, while giving you the flexibility to adjust prices according to demand, in case there are vacancies in the calendar.

attractiveness

Whether travelers compare prices from hotels to Airbnb apartments, or that their choice is based solely on price, this is a myth. Unlike a hotel, travelers have the option of booking the size of the apartment that best suits their needs and they do not have to stay in separate hotel rooms. This makes a 2 bedroom apartment with a sofa bed (which can therefore accommodate 6 people) much more attractive than 3 separate rooms in a hotel. Of course, there are several parameters, such as the unique charm of the apartment or the reason for the stay.

Events

Even if you are not a fan of tennis, you can become one if you host travelers at the Masters of Paris. All the matches are held in Bercy, so it is not surprising that in this neighborhood the hosts are used to increasing their rates compared to the hosts located in other more central neighborhoods, despite the fact that October is considered As an off-season period (These price increases also take place during other sporting or cultural events in Paris). There are of course many other tips that could determine the price of your Airbnb apartment. If you want to know more, call us!
