Want to rent your house via Airbnb? Then you want to know Bnb Fixed Fee

never encumber your friends with bnb check-ins

Since a while I rent my house via Airbnb every now and then while I’m travelling and my lover can join me. Looking back, I think: stupid that I didn’t do this before. But perhaps you recognize it when I say it was just too much to handle before going on a trip. I just couldn’t manage to leave the house spick and span and also finish the last last-minute things for Your Little Black Book and pack my things. After packing my suitcase the last thing that I want to do is cleaning up the mess I just made, trust me ;-) But now, I’m tack. Since there was a camera crew in my house a couple of weeks ago, my house has never been so tight! Pretty Airbnb proof!

no hassle with bnb fixed fee

The first time that I received guests via Airbnb, I could get away with asking colleague Lise to do the check-in and key exchange. But it doesn’t feel good to keep asking your friends to do your chars. Do you recognize the feeling? Of course there are many agencies in Amsterdam that help you with renting your house. But often they ask a pretty high percentage and isn’t it the most warm welcome for guests. In my search to a good alternative, I came across Merel from Bnb Fixed Fee. For a fixed fee she arranges your check-in, cleaning, laundry and makes sure you don’t notice a thing that other people have slept in your bed. It’s like a package you buy that you can adjust every time according to your needs.

personal check-ins and a clean house!

Are you a Airbnb-newbie? Then Merel also gives some nice tips and tricks on her blog to get more from your rental. She also knows all the rules that you must adhere to. I’m excited about the service and my guests also find the personal check-ins of my ‘friend’ Merel nice. The €60,- that I pay to Bnb Fixed Fee to make sure that they’ll do the final things  as regards to cleaning and check-in the guests I directly pass on to my guests as cleaning costs.
