Nowadays, there are numerous ways to make money from home. One option is hosting overnight stays. There are many short term rental websites out there, but if you’re not a fan of having strangers spend the night at your property, you may want to consider becoming a host on Viewnary. Compared to Airbnb and Vrbo, Viewnary is unique in that it allows you to organize hourly rentals. Here are the 3 main benefits of hosting on Viewnary.
1. Plan hourly rentals
If you look up Airbnb Miami or Vrbo Florida, you’ll come across countless listings that you can book for one (or more) nights. Much like hotels, the rate you pay is nightly. Some listings are entire residences, while others are just one room within a property. Amongst other factors, city skyline views are often an important consideration when choosing a place to stay.
If not to wake up to an amazing view, it could be that guests want an exclusive view over a sporting event. Instead of buying Monaco Grand Prix tickets, they could rent out an apartment that overlooks the circuit. But what if they only want to book the apartment for a few hours to watch the race without having to book it for an entire night?
Alternatively, if a couple wants to have a romantic date or an intimate golden hour drink in a unique setting, why pay for an overnight stay?
Now, thanks to Viewnary, you can rent out your apartment with views without having people around for the night: you just have to set an hourly price per guest and skip the overnight part. How many guests you can host, as well as which price you want to charge, is up to you.
2. Less invasive
While other space-rental platforms offer various types of property, Viewnary focuses on properties/spaces with unique views and settings. Avoid all the problems with Airbnb. If you have a balcony, terrace or even an indoor area with a midtown manhattan skyline, all you need to do is rent out that specific space – not your entire property.
This makes hosting on Viewnary less invasive and protective of your privacy than any other short term rental platforms. Having guests spend a few hours, say for a golden hour cocktail, instead of days at your place is naturally less invasive.
3. Your rental property cleaning list just got simpler
Cleaning up your property and ensuring adequate maintenance after an overnight stay costs lots of time and money. After a Viewnary booking, there’s less to clean up and maintain since you’re most likely only hosting guests on a specific part of your property. Viewnary bookings are easy to fit into a busy schedule, since you can decide exactly when and for how long you can host.
Even if you are already hosting on Airbnb, and are wondering how to make money on your property, you can fill empty slots with hourly bookings with Viewnary. No guests staying the night next Friday? You can still earn just by renting out to a photographer who wants to spice up her Instagram gallery with your best views in New York.
