How to start renting apartments on Air BnB to tourists. We tell you about our experience.
After 1 year of moving to Tenerife, my husband and I decided to buy a small apartment in a tourist area in Puerto de la Cruz, in the north of the island.
The apartment was in a former hotel complex that still retained the reception, bar, restaurant and heated swimming pool in a beautiful tropical garden. Once we bought it we realized that to live in it it would have been too small since it was a small apartment of only 40 square meters plus a balcony overlooking the sea, having also 1 dog and a cat.
Not knowing what to do, we began to inform ourselves of renting it in the long term but the prospect of gain was very low and above all we were frightened by the various stories circulating in the area about people who did not pay their rent and stayed at home with no one knows what right. … 🙁 or even that they took away all the furniture. This is why we decided to finish the renovations, furnish it and resell it higher. While the works were coming to an end, the apartment seemed to come from a design magazine, and there we realized that it would be a shame not to exploit it.
For this reason the idea of renting it for a holiday began to flash. In 2016 very few people rented their homes on Airbnb or especially on Booking (which was seen as a hotel site). For this reason there was not much information about it as it is nowadays that has become a fashion. The gains were very high, but it was not easy to start from 0 and understand the paperwork to follow, especially here in the Canaries. So, we began to investigate and study everything concerning this topic to prepare ourselves to become a Host. I must say that the Airbnb website has helped us a lot in preparing to receive our guests, and how to set up our apartment in order to give customers all the comforts they need.
After 1 month of in-depth study and preparation, we finally decided to publish our announcement on the major portals. That was the beginning. Now in 2019 we also have a real estate companyhttps://www.facebook.com/dhp.realestatetenerife/ that sells and manages vacation apartments, all over Tenerife, and supports all the people who want to become Hosts.
