  1. Help travelers get to know you. Set up your profile by uploading a picture and telling guests a bit about yourself, your listing, and your neighborhood.
  2. Make your space welcoming. Put away personal items and tidy up to make your place welcoming for guests. Add a compelling description of your listing and amenities offered. You’ll aslo want to setup your calendar availability and set an attractive price to get your first booking.
  3. Upload photos of your space. Take photos of your space during the day when there is good light. Many hosts use simple tools from their cell phones. We also offer free professional photography so you can showcase what makes your space unique. Sign up here.
  4. Connect with guests. Communicate directly with travelers and decide who stays in your space. Agree on a check-in time and key exchange to welcome your first guest.
