Think being a Super Host is Super Hard? Think again…
Elle was not always a super host. She has gone through the usual trials and errors that most people do that approach the vacation rental business with fearless inexperience. Over the years, Ellie has learned – the hard way – that sometimes the best way to manage your vacation rental business is to let the professionals do it for you.
“Some of our most enthusiastic hosts are so dedicated to their guests having an exceptional stay that they’re challenged to find their own time and resources for themselves,” says Elle. “They’re givers and sometimes givers swing too far into that giving activity.”
Worrying about what is going on with your remotely located property adds unnecessary pressures and stress onto your day to day lifestyle. When it seems like you just don’t have the time or the energy to properly manage your vacation rental property, achieving the status of “SuperHost” seems too far out of reach. But fear not, because becoming a Super Host is Super Easy with Special Places of Costa Rica! Ellie knows this, and has put together two easy steps every host can follow to help prevent hosting from becoming more of a chore than a reward.
Determine your Super Host Goals
Are you hosting your vacation rental primarily to earn money? For companionship? To create more art or share the meals you enjoy preparing? Then it’s important to recognize and feel good about how being a super host aligns with and supports these goals. For Elle, Special Places hosting started as a means to keeping her beach-front condo. She says that initial goal has evolved into being able to provide a great, affordable place to stay in the highly coveted Flamingo Beach area and give guests the opportunity to live like a truly pampered traveler. “I’m proud to be able to share that.”
Surround Yourself with the BEST Vacation Rental Management Resources
And by resources, Elle means those you can “call in a pinch” when, for instance, “you need to arrange for a late check-in because your incoming guests experienced travel delays. This can be especially stressful for absentee owners like me who are living and working in another country.” Thankfully, Special Places of Costa Rica makes it easy to be a super host. Special Places is fully staffed with professionals who make it their business to take all the worry out of check-in & checkout logistics, as well as providing an impressive array of full concierge services as required. For owners who do not live in the area, this is akin to having a community of like-minded friends that protect your interests, your property and your reputation. Owners can sleep soundly knowing that Special Places really does take care of all the little details.
That’s all there is to it… with Special Places of Costa Rica on your team, you too can become a Super Host – just like Elle!
