    Thanks Laura for the topic.You will not  believe it. Its what my husband asked me this morning.  If I went back in time would I do things the same way.  Of course!! all the way!! My life has been like a fairytale.

    Have two lovely children, one beautiful grandaugther and thank God although we had hard times in the past we are all healthy.  With my husband we have traveled and discovered our country, first of all, and then around the world in so many places over and over again. Now that my grandaughter is ten years old I dont tell her fairytales but my life adventures and discoveries. Now she takes part in hosting and is thrilled. The fairytale never ends....

    Happy posting to everyone!!!

    Welcome everyone to the Partner Forum! Sharonhaseley, I imagine that springtime is particularly beautiful at your property with its pastoral green setting. 

    Lucy, your Tea House experience sounds so inviting!

    Sarah Heard

    Hi everyone,  my name´s Sarah and I have a holiday apartment in the lovely town of Pinoso in the inland Alicante region of Spain.

    I have been on booking.com for a while but only recently came across the forum and started posting.

    As for the questions

    1. Where you’re from?  I am from Yorkshire in the UK originally but have lived in Spain full time for over 10 years.
    2. What’s your property like?  My property is a 1 bedroom apartment with 2 wonderful outside terraces where guests can enjoy the year round sunshine.  It´s in a small town surrounded by countryside where farming grapes, almonds and olives is the most common activity.  The town has many wonderful fiestas throughout the year,  we have just enjoyed the Spanish 3 King´s celebrations and parades.
    3. How long have you been in the business?  This apartment is our first and we´ve been running it for a couple of years now.  Although, as I love travel you could say I´ve been in the business for over 30 years - but most of that as a guest ;-)

    Bonus round! If you could go back in time, where would you go?  oooo this is a really difficult question .... I would probably go back to the Yukon in Canada where I went in 1988 - this time taking my lovely husband back in time with me :-)

    My name is alta. My hotel was constructed in 2005 and only in 2018 we were able successfully open it. The name of my property is Rambuje Hotel . Located near a beautiful river called Drini, not far away from a wonderful beach called Vain. As you can imagine all this paradise is part of a small city Lezha in Albania. We operate with 18 rooms. We tried to fulfill every guest need and desires.
    This year I reach 8.8 from booking. Thank you very much. We are full during summer and very kin to know how it will go during winter days.

    Breiner House - Porto

    Hey everyone, my name is Christina and I am new to booking.com. I own a property in Porto, Portugal. A cute little studio apartment with kitchenette and a balcony on a quiet street near the city center.

    Although I have had some views of the property, I don’t seem to be getting any inquiries. Since I have no reviews on the property as of yet, I’m not sure how to promote the listing.

    I would appreciate any advice from the forum on what I can do to get bookings...

    Thanks so much,
    Christina

    Hi! Sarah-Heard, love your profile picture, you are beautiful and very happy...

    so nice to have you here.  I love Spain. Have visited your country, with my husband many times and had great time. Hope we can do it again sometime. Yukon, Canada, another beautiful place to be. I have lived in Toronto, Canada for many years when attending school and afterwards visit it a couple of times with my husband and children.  Many adorable  relatives and friends still  live there and come to visit us in Greece every year. So our summers are even more beautiful with reunions.

    I was borned in Athens, lived for 5 years in Canada and now with my husband have settled down and enjoy our summer house in Oropos, 5 klm from the beach and  55 klm away from Athens.

    Our summer house is a two storeys house.  In the upper floor is our Studio which is available to guests only  in the summetime from April till October, since in the  wintertime it is occupied by us.

    The Studio is 85 sq. m., with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, big veranda, fireplace, flat-screen TV, private bathroom whith shower and free luxury toiletries, excellent quality towels and bed linen, private garden with barbecue facilities. The amazing panoramic view of sea and mountains is the reason everybody loves the Studio.

    We love being outdoors. We live to travel. We believe riches come from experiences, not things. It is important to us to live everyday to the maximm, because  knows what’s around the corner. We love adventure, travel, great food and good friends, preferably all at once.

    Have a nice day....

    Hi! -Rambujehotel very nice to hear you are full. I have visited your beautiful country but where exactly is Lezha.

    I have been to ksamil. The place is wonderful and  the beaches incredible.

    Christina dont worry. You will have your bookings in no time. In the meantime share your property in facebook, instagram etc. Visit your Opportunities  and  Promotion tab in you Extranet inbox. Making some deals helps a lot since many guests are searching for bargains.

    Cheers!!!

    Centerfrance

    Hi, everyone, my name is Angie and I should have introduced myself before but never realised there was this opening forum.

    I am English from the S.West of UK, my husband and myself are helping our son to develop his house,situated in the Center of France in the middle of one of the largest oak forests in Europe. The finest oak is used for wine barrels and the making of Cognac.There is much history in the area.

    One apartment is being let for holiday rentals and  the house is beside a beautiful fishing lake,the apartment has beautiful views of the lake and surrounding forest.

    People come for the fishing, walking,with their pets,to just be able to appreciate the silence in the forest and  close to nature.

    I would not change being able to come to this area and feel very privileged, in this age of `hustle and bustle`. however technology makes it simple to communicate ,worldwide. 

    To Christina,  we have been with booking .com for a year and it was ,`slow`,to start but you will find that any business takes time to nurture and grow, don`t become` fainthearted`,you will soon find your `niche`.

    Breiner House - Porto

    Hi Angie,

    In the middle of an Oak forest! Sounds incredible! There is something about being outdoors amidst nature that is so attractive, such beauty.

    My family and I visited Cognac during a festival one year. It took place in the center of town. We first enjoyed a walking tour through some of the beautiful vineyards and later that evening, sipped some sinfully delicious cognac while listening to live jazz music at said festival. We had a memorable time and would definitely enjoy visiting again.

    As for the process, i understand it is a slow one, but there is something about hosting, greeting your guests, sharing some hotspots or sights to see around town, just overall making there stay a pleasant experience, just as I have had in the places we have visited and with the hosts who received us.

    I sincerely thank you for the encouragement and
    yes, I certainly plan to hang in there while any tips or advice are definitely and greatly appreciated since this is my first time hosting.

    Sincerely,
    Christina
