Turn your home into an Airbnb destination

The times, they are changing. With access to several mobile apps, our lifestyles are changing in ways that were unknown to us not to long ago. We use Uber for transport, Snapscan to pay for street parking and for accommodation, we have the greatly accessibly and easy to use Airbnb app – that connects people from all over the world to living spaces.

Airbnb allows you to book homes from local hosts and experience a place like you live there. No more do we have to share a cramped dormitory in a packed backpackers or out-budget accommodation fees on boutique B&B’s or hotels, we now have the chance to live comfortably in a home setup, in a different city or country all at the touch of a button.

The rise of Airbnb listings are increasing in South Africa, as our tourism is expanding. People would much prefer to enjoy the atmosphere and style of someone’s home than stay in a place they don’t feel connected to. South Africa, and especially Cape Town has a large demand for property that rests along the coast, in the middle of the city or surrounded by the leafy suburbs. When people travel to our country, they are looking for more than just a place to stay, they are looking for an experience and a chance to make more memories.

So, instead of renting the flat or house you own and ensuring leases are signed and deposits are secured, why not turn your investment into an Airbnb property. The same applies with spare bedrooms and cottages. If you’re already getting short term lease tenants come in, think of the potential these spaces can have with someone visiting from another country and how you can share a little piece of your home, environment and inside knowledge to your city.
