Third year host. Hosting is a responsibility I take pretty seriously. I go to Airbnb town hall meetings and dial in to conference calls to keep up to date on the latest news and standards.
I wish I had time to accept every booking request but my schedule doesn't allow for that like it used to. :( I don't leave keys with local bartenders/baristas so I only accept requests when I know I can be fully available for my guests.
From day one, I planned the space layout in a way that accommodates Airbnb guests rather than as an afterthought. During your stay, my cell phone is always on so that I can be available 24/7. The best feeling is receiving a booking request from a repeat guest. :)
