Yesterday I found, and ordered, a few items to make AirBnB life easier for both my guests and for me: a luggage rack for the bedroom (no need to live out of luggage that is always open on the floor); a new deadbolt lock for the front door that has a programmable key pad; 2 wall-mount fire extinguishers; a few small items to make the suite's kitchen a bit more user friendly for folks from diverse countries of origin. My local handyman is scheduled to install the lock and mount the fire extinguishers next Tuesday. Also on my list: more skirt hangers; a coffee maker (local charity shop often has great ones at modest prices and I have a garage shop 1 block away in a few days); some additional artwork to brighten up the place (Home Goods, here I come) ; a three ring binder and tabs to create a folio about local public transit, running and biking trails, tips for local TV and radio services, how to use the appliances, plus some maps and brochures for tourists. I am sure that the notebook will grow a lot over time as I discover more about what interests my guests.
Now that Expedia has taken them over, the fees are exorbitant. We're looking into the Inspirato Pass for next year. Anyone have experience with them? Pricey, but it seems you get a lot of bang for the buck.@teriraia wrote:
I love staying at Airbrib and VRBO and the 3 ring binder is a must. It sounds like you are organizing well and the place sounds beautiful. I appreciated that the last host had some conditioner and shampoo for the guests. Nothing fancy but not super cheap either. Fresh flowers and home-baked cookies are always welcoming.
