Airbnb is a new brand partner for Balance. Together, we are interested in exploring the idea of how to become an Airbnb host and use the service.
In this video we meet Sandy Bruns. Sandy is an Airbnb host with a Bronte property listing and we ask her what to expect as an Airbnb host.
Sandy previously owned well known cafes Swell and Bronte Cucina. She is now travelling and decided Airbnb would help with security and extra income.
“I thought I would be happy to have the house rented about 20% of the time… as it turns out it’s rented about 80% of the time,” Sandy said.
Do you have to have experience and is Airbnb secure?
In this segment of our interview, Sandy talks about the initial reservations she had about Airbnb and how the system works.
When you sign up for Airbnb hosting, the company automatically puts in place a $1,000,000 AUD host guarantee and host protection insurance
