As I have mentioned several times on my blog, we opened up our home to travellers over four years ago. Initially, we did it to meet lots of new people and make our lives a little more exciting too. However, it can’t be denied that we’ve been very successful with this and are often fully booked for weeks or even months on end despite not living in a city centre location.
Meanwhile, there are lots of people with good locations but poor Airbnb profile pages with few if any visitors and even fewer reviews.
In this Kindle E-book, I have shared my experience, advice and tips on how you can go about having a successful listing on Airbnb and the other rival room-sharing websites. For 99pence / 99cents what have you got to lose and you might make yourself a small fortune
This book has been an Amazon Kindle Number 1 Bestseller in multiple categories and is only available as an ebook from Lulu and iTunes/iBooks and also on Kindle from Amazon UK, Amazon USA and all other Amazon websites as well as Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
In November 2014, I was interviewed by Bloomberg Television for a feature on Airbnb which also showcased my book below and there aren’t many similar books that can make such a claim.
Then in November 2015 I was interviewed on the BBC about my book and Airbnb in general, the host thought both the book and myself were great and commented how incredible it was that such an ordinary home was so obviously a big success.
How To Get Rich Using Airbnb is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk and are also available through Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Smashwords and Createspace. Alternatively, if you send me an email I can send you a signed copy of any book for the usual retail price plus postage.
***An Amazon 2013, 2014 and 2015 # 1 ranking best-seller in three sections including TRAVEL > Special Interest > Business and TRAVEL > Bed & Breakfast ***
There are no other Airbnb-related books or authors with such a pedigree.
Even better, here are some actual reviews from my Airbnb listing. As you can see from 2012 to 2016, I have been successfully making lots of money and making hundreds of tourists and long-term rentals happy at the same time in what as the BBC admitted is a very average home.
“This was my first Airbnb experience, and I can honestly say it was wonderful. Stephen provided me with great directions to his place and how to get to my next location via the bus and tube. He was also a life saver when I realized I brought the wrong plug adapter and found one for me to use until I was able to purchase one. I highly recommend this Airbnb and would love to have another opportunity to come back in the future.” Carly from California in January 2016
“Stephen was an excellent host and made me feel very welcome. The house is clean and comfortable, and the room was exactly as described. Although I didn’t require them, the provision of towels and shower gel was a nice touch. The breakfast cupboard was also handy. Overall, a great experience and highly recommended.” Nicola from Birmingham, U.K. October 2015
“We loved everything about our stay! I only wish we were able to spend more time there! We will definitely be coming back to London, and definitely with Stephen and Emilia! The house is easy to find, the room was just as described. I’d have loved to spend more time at the house, but our time was limited. Stephen and Emilia were wonderful hosts, both very kind and helpful. I was hesitant when I booked – to stay at someone’s home, but I have no regrets! ”
Lindsey from New York in February 2014
“The sun did indeed shine in London during my stay with Emila and Stephen and no more radiantly than the friendly smiles of my hosts and their many kindnesses during my stay. My first Air bnb experience was a memorable one because of Emilia and Stephen. Their house is spotlessly clean, modern and conveniently located. They made my visit a memorable stay indeed, and I am grateful to have met Emilia and Stephen on my first Air BnB trip.”
David from New Mexico, September 2012
