Jenny takes her business seriously and has found many resources that help keep her stay on top of trends, connect with other hosts to share ideas and constantly hone her property management skills.
Jenny never stops learning, from attending seminars and webinars to reading articles and participating in a variety of local small business programmes and in online host communities.
One thing she’s learned is that she prefers to have guests book through a trusted marketplace rather than directly with her. This frees her up to focus on what matters most — making sure her guests have a great experience. Working with us provides an additional layer of protection with carefully vetted guests, fraud prevention tools and more.
Jenny has also observed that the quality of guests really does vary across each holiday rental marketplace. On our platform, she has found the ideal guests who stay longer and book again and again. Jenny’s cabin is currently fully booked until the middle of next year, and our platform is now the top source of bookings for the property.
Jenny’s business continues to thrive. In fact, she’s currently expanding, adding a ‘glamping’ option to the property for next year. She and her husband are also starting plans for building an additional cabin down the road.
They’re even considering expanding to other locations by buying another property — perhaps near a lake, something Jenny has always wanted. Knowing that they can acquire a second home, then use our platform to generate revenue when they’re not using it, makes it easier for Jenny and her husband to make their dream of a second home a reality.
Jenny continues to learn and grow as a businesswoman and has even begun offering her expertise to others who are considering starting a holiday rental business. One of the key insights she shares? She tells them that knowing what she knows now, she would have listed with us from the start!
