Airbnb (Air Bed and Breakfast, or Air BNB) is the second most valuable United States technology startup - estimated to be worth approximately 30 billion dollars. This is because Airbnb successfully books millions of properties around the world daily, directly pays out money to hosts and takes service fees from every transaction. Airbnb has affected the politics and policies of cities, housing, and the job market on a global scale, and has forever changed the way people travel.
This book will help you understand how we started an Airbnb that transformed our income and property while providing memorable experiences for people from all over the world.
As a guest at Airbnb units, we have found the experiences to widely vary in quality from unit to unit. We write this book in hopes of elevating the overall experience for Airbnb guests across the board. We enjoy this form of travel- but notice that that there are still major gaps in safety, sustainability, and accessibility for everyone. We hope this book will serve as a catalyst for improvement to spaces by hosts across the board to make the overall experience better for everyone, while improving your income and space at the same time.
