Are you thinking about being an Airbnb host in the Anaheim and Long Beach area? You’re not alone. According to DMR Business Statistics, there are over 640,000 Airbnb hosts all over the world, drawing in 150 million Airbnb users since its inception. And it isn’t hard to discover why there are so many Airbnb hosts all over the world. By simply renting out an uninhabited room or set or rooms, hosts can expect to make a couple hundred to a couple thousand extra dollars every month!

So, what’s the secret to being a profitable Airbnb host? Well, it’s actually pretty similar to being a regular host. Except, unlike your last house party, Airbnb guests will rate their stay, and no one wants to stay at a home with poor ratings. If you’re thinking about hosting Airbnb in the Anaheim, Los Angeles and Long Beach area, check out these tips!

4 Must-Follow Long Beach and Anaheim Airbnb Hosting Tips

  1. Clean Your Home: This should really be common sense when hosting any guests, but take time to thoroughly clean your home. And we don’t mean a superficial cleaning of your most visible areas! Instead, really take the time to scrub and prepare your home for guests. While by no means do your Airbnb guests expect to stay in a 5-star hotel, they do expect for their stay to be clean. A part of cleaning your home should be decluttering the guest area. Any personal items and valuables should be moved to another location or placed into storage.
  2. Offer Essential Airbnb Amenities: Many of your Airbnb guests will have used Airbnb before. This means that your guests will likely compare their stay with you to their stays with other hosts. One of the best ways to make a good impression on your guests is to have the essential amenities and supplies in your home. For example, the bedroom should be stocked with extra pillows, blankets and an alarm clock. The bathroom should have enough toilet paper, a hair dryer, fresh towels, toothpaste and disposable razors. The kitchen should be stocked with the necessary kitchen supplies like a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cooking oil, utensils and sets of plates and bowls.
  3. Have a Welcome Basket: This is a personal touch that will go a long way. In this welcome basket you can include things like small snacks, fruit, tea or hot cocoa and even some wine. The idea is to make your guests feel welcome and cared for.
  4. Offer Resources: Your guests are likely staying in your home because they are traveling. As a local, you can provide insight and share helpful tips and tricks for the city that they may not be able to find online or in book. Answer any questions they have about the area and be willing to give recommendations about cool restaurants and interesting locations. If you will not be around during their stay, leave books about the area out for guests to read or pin a list of recommendations to the fridge.

Be the Best Airbnb Host in Anaheim and Long Beach with Help from Lighthouse Self Storage

When inviting any guests into your home, it is extremely important to declutter. When those guests happen to be Airbnb guests who will be living there for multiple days, and therefore have access to drawers and closets in your home, this is essential. But, losing a couple of rooms of storage space can actually be a big deal. So, what are you going to do with the off-season clothes, extra furniture and other trinkets that were stored in those rooms? Well, consider a storage unit rental.

A storage unit rental is a good way to declutter your home for your Airbnb guests while still holding onto important or off-season items. Lighthouse Self Storage has storage facilities in Whittier, CA, Westminster, CA, Oceanside, CA and Carson, CA, serving the local Anaheim and Long Beach, CA area.
