Episode 75: Running an Airbnb. Everything You Ever Wanted to Know.
LISTEN HERE Most of us have stayed in an Airbnb once in our lives, but have you ever thought about what it would be like to run one yourself? In this episode of ExtraVirgin Food & Travel Podcast, Natascha Mirosch talks with Lucy Cousins, owner of the gorgeous "The Artist's Cottage," in Blackheath, in The Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia. They discuss everything from why you'd do it, to how to do it - all the perks and the pitfalls of airbnb ownership, from expenses and claimable taxes, to dealing with wayward guests, marketing tips and lots more practical information. Lucy also shares her own personal experiences - from nearly losing the cottage to bushfire, to being gifted paintings of naked guests. So, whether you're thinking of doing it yourself or are just curious about behind-the-scenes of an Airbnb, have a listen.
