Shampoo and Booze Episode 26: Being Airbnb Guests Rather Than Hosts For A Bit

We've been on the road for work and fun for the last two weeks. Our first stop was beautiful Bellingham, Washington where we stayed in a basement (bachelor style) apartment of a very nice family. Next we drove about 400 miles to Bend, Oregon to immerse ourselves in some Northwestern hipster-ism, complete with bespoke coffee and beer at every corner.  We thoroughly enjoy being Airbnb and guests, rather than hosts, every once in a while. Back home, our friend is successfully running our Farmhouse, checking people in and cleaning. Thank goodness for people you can trust!

We had an interesting week of farmhouse adventures. While Ryanne was busy promoting the house at a wedding show, Jay was cleaning the whole thing and checking people in (and literally putting out fires with chaotic guests, [they were very confused about this]). Also, the roof on the river house renovation is done. We made the final payment and did the final walk through this week. Feels good to get that done and paid. It's a real beauty!

Shampoo and Booze Episode 24: Outside- Just As Important As The Inside of Your Rental

As springtime springs and summer approaches, we remember how important the outside areas of our house are for attracting guests. Creating and maintaining the land can be time consuming and pricey, but when you hear from your guests about how much fun they had exploring the woods and the stream, that makes it all worth it. Plus it's cheaper than a pool!

Shampoo and Booze Episode 23: Springtime Airbnb Rentals Picking Up and Jay's Fresh Flowers

Springtime is officially here. That means Jay gets to cut fresh flowers and put them on the table at the farmhouse. It looks nice and it's free! We talk about how we run our businesses like a Mom and Pop general store. All hands on deck, all of the time. We have a feeling that more urban rentals are becoming less like this. Though there are a lot of country rentals around here that are just as hands off, even by the management companies. We have successfully booked 4th of July weekend for a premium, so that feels great.
