    Info

    Hi my name is Rob, my wife Mary and I moved from Buckinghamshire England to county Mayo in Ireland 2 years ago to open and run bed and breakfast, always been our dream. We opened Marnic House B&B on 1st March 2017, we have just celebrated our 2nd birthday.
    Marnic House has 4 en-suite rooms , breakfast room and guest lounge. Big enough for the 2 of us to run without getting help in. Last year we opened up our back garden to caravans and Motorhomes, I love where I live and want as many people as possible to see it.

    Where you’re from?

    I am from Brisbane, Australia.  Brisbane is becoming very popular with travelling guests.

    What’s your property like?

    We have a large home which has got too big for my partner and myself. We turned the top floor of our house into a B&B.  It has three large queen sized bedrooms and two bathrooms.  Our property is called Brisbane, Modern and Convenient Coorparoo and we have been in the B&B business since mid 2017.  

    We really enjoy meeting and talking to guests from all over the world.  It is hard work but enjoyable when we get such great reviews and information that the guests share with us about their visits to Brisbane and how much they enjoyed their stay.  It is very satisfying.

    Hi! Justmyself100 almost similar situation. Kids have grown up, flew away, house too big for two people. Hosting is a great idea to meet and greet people us long as they are not troublemakers.
    Nice to hear that others feel the same way you do...
    Happy posting!!!!

    Thank you for your post,  yes it can be a little difficult when you live on the property.  We have been very fortunate with only a couple of guests who did not follow house rules.

    Hi everyone. 

     

     I have a small apartment in Cape Town 100 metres from the beach.   I have been with Airbnb exclusively for the past 2 years.  I am a Superhost and have loved every minute of meeting my guests.  I have been considering adding my property to Booking.com but I am quite nervous about hitting the final button.   I have to take time to sit down and learn the programme before I feel I can begin....

    Bottom line...I am nervous. 

    Thanks Sharon.

    Dear Sharon Welcome!!!

    Please don't be as you will not be sorry/ I am in Agulhas WC and its the best thing I ever did 85% of my bookings come from bookings, com. They are amazing!!!! I only get about 8% bookings from Airbnb but love them as well xxxx

    Take the leap it's well worth it

    Welcome Sharon

    I don’t think you will regret joining booking.com, I am new to this and it has taken me a little while to get used to how they operate - I still can’t manage to link them to airb&b though.
    Good luck and take the plunge.

    Regards

    Hello, 

    My name is Sophia. We have two properties on Lefkada island, Greece. We rent them out majorly in summer time. We are listed on booking.com and haven't got any bookings this year yet. We also have a website: https://housvillas4rent.com

    If any of you could give me any advice, I would highly appreciate it.

    @villa soumela i think the best way after you have listed your property is going a step further and start marketing your place using a share url link. You are just supposed to copy it and endlessly continue pasting it in all platforms you think are your potential target markets. For example if a guest will click to search on properties in Lefkada island and finds out that there is a property in the same island with more  reviews than yours he/she will be tempted to book on another property. Just market your property as aggresively as you can until you feel you have submited your share link to over a very high number of platforms you cannot remember.

    Work harder and harder!

    I greet you!

    Hi! Sophia and welcome to the forum, how nice to have a Greek partner from our beautiful Ionian Islands.

    I have visited your island many many times and have beautiful moments....

    In addition to what  kibokoafrica mentioned above, maybe you should visit your Opportunities tab in your Extrenet.  I am sure you will find something that  suits you.

    Wish you a  good start of the season...
