Together with my husband Philip, we love traveling together and really enjoy meeting new people wherever they may be from. We travel overseas frequently, particularly to Europe, and now have an ever widening circle of friends and acquaintances with whom we try to stay in touch.
We have been hosting AirBnb guests for over 2 years now and are most gratified with the responses we get from our guests.
We attained "Superhost" status after 3 months and have maintained this status ever since. It is an integral part of our hosting. We like to welcome our guests with a comprehensive briefing on what to do, where to go, and which restaurants to visit while in Wellington. We back this up with written notes on our house routines, together with a detailed map and list of recommended restaurants, as well as clear directions on how to navigate their way around the town.
We like to treat our AirBnb guests just as we treat close friends and family whenever they visit.
