When I started my first Airbnb, I had too many questions (and concerns!) to count.
And the worst part was - I couldn’t find reliable information anywhere.
The lack of helpful information made me even more overwhelmed and worried that starting my first Airbnb would be a total disaster.
So, I opened my Airbnb with little guidance and a whole lot of trial and error.
I learned the hard way that, yes, the details do matter, and, no, responding to guests isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I've learned what works and what doesn’t. What gets more bookings. What gets 5-star reviews. What the Airbnb platform is good for, and what it's not.
I grossed over $85k my first year Airbnb hosting.
I achieved Superhost status just three months after starting my Airbnb.
I've had dozens of ecstatic guests and 5-stars reviews.
And I learned everything the hard way, so you don't have to.
Stop feeling like you have to re-invent the wheel.
Stop asking yourself, “Wait, aren’t there 4 million Airbnb hosts worldwide? Why does it feel like I have to go this completely alone?"
Now you don’t. That’s why I’m here.
My partner, Matt, and I traveled to 100 different cities and got a lot of experience being Airbnb guests in the process.
That trip laid the groundwork for exactly the type of Airbnb host I wanted to become.
In 2018, I spent four months traveling through Europe.
After getting back from Europe, Matt and I headed straight to San Francisco, where I landed my dream job in brand marketing.
It didn't take long for me to realize the reality of that job wasn't what I thought it would be. I spent every day commuting two hours to work and back, only to sit at my desk becoming less and less passionate about the work I was doing.
In 2019, I landed my dream job...or so I thought.
When the pandemic hit, things got even worse.
After spending six months working from our one-room apartment in the middle of San Francisco, I decided I couldn't take it anymore.
So, Matt and I broke our lease, moved to Lake Tahoe, and got Winston - the cutest puppy ever. I had no idea what my plan was, but I knew I never wanted to go back to the city.
In 2020, the pandemic changed everything.
And I immediately fell in love.
Six months later, Matt and I moved into our new home in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
I turned my Lake Tahoe home into an Airbnb; quit my full-time, 6-figure, job; and started coaching other hosts on how to successfully build their own Airbnb businesses.
In 2021, I visited Jackson Hole for the first time.
These proven tactics and step-by-step guides will help you go from just-barely-surviving to thriving.
"I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!"
Sabrina is truly the best host I’ve ever worked with.
"I’m already planning my next stay!"
I have stayed in MANY places throughout Tahoe over the last several years, and this is the only one that I will absolutely be making sure I can come back to.
"If you're considering this place for your next vacation, don't wait."
My teens were impressed, and that's hard to do. The homeowner's communication was nothing less than first class.
"Will definitely stay again!"
Sabrina is a wonderful host answering all my questions within minutes.
"This is our favorite Airbnb ever!"
I can’t think of one thing our host Sabrina left out.
