Bernal Neighbor Launches Concierge Service for Vacation Rental Hosts

guesthop

Recently, Neighbor Emily launched Guesthop, a new service for people who host guests via websites like Airbnb and VRBO.  She tells Bernalwood:

From the East Side of Bernal, introducing Guesthop.com.

We created Guesthop to deal with the problems people face when they are hosts on AirBnB. People love to rent their spaces on AirBnB but it’s a lot of work! They have to list the place and handle inquiries, keep it clean, make it guest-ready, plus take care of the guests while they are in town. It’s a lot of management and attention to detail.

Basically, everything a concierge would do in a hotel — that’s what Guesthop does. We handle all the work for people, to make renting out your space hassle free.

Mention Bernalwood and get $10 off your first Guesthop service.

  1. I’d like to think that there are some other interesting businesses that could be featured on this blog. How about some non-tech services that touch the lives of Bernal residents.

    • @ Ed: Guesthop in fact does touch the lives of Bernal Residents and is NOT a tech company, yes we have a website, but what company doesn’t? Not sure what you are getting at.
      We are making it possible for property owners to rent out their places when they are away or otherwise unable to manage the bookings and take care of the guests while they are staying in the homes. This service has been extremely beneficial to many people already, touching the lives in a way that has been very liberating for people that thought they were unable to share their home and earn extra income.

      ***Sorry for the double post, just wanted to make sure this reply gets to Ed.****

  2. This is an interesting concept – I can see owners wanting to AirBnB their property or part of their property using their services. I Assume Guesthop knows that any renter using them is, very likely, in violation of their lease already. I doubt this would affect Guesthop but any landlord noting their presence or activity on their property would have grounds for eviction.

    • Yes, our focus is to work mainly with property owners, but sometimes with renters as well. It is the renters responsibility to know what their lease says.
      Guesthop is here to serve the hosts making hosting more feasible, and make sure their guests are well cared for in their absence.

  5. @bocana planter – it’s not typical property management, finding renters, collecting rent, maintaining properties, like you may be referring to.

    This a is niche market, we are a hospitality concierge business as well as property management, working specifically with owners of short term rentals and their guests who are tourists. Managing inquiries and bookings, turnovers and check ins, more like managing many small hotels all around town.

    Instead of cynical, how about recognize the need for innovative ideas in an ever changing world, and the people around you that are doing them!
