I am an interior designer, Airbnb Cohost in West Michigan, and owner of Bella Traverse Design. I have been an interior designer for 16 years. I've done it all from home staging, to kitchen design to whole home renovations. My Airbnb journey started off in 2016 when my husband and I had an "extra" house. We didn't want to sell, but weren't using it. We had two family members that had been renting theirs as a short term rental. So we thought we'd give it a try. I fell in love! We designed, handled reservations, hosted, cleaned, did the books, you name it, we did it! Most importantly we learned what to do and what not to do. It was an incredible journey. So today my focus is designing & cohosting STR's that your guests will love, while earning you 5 star reviews, resulting in higher nightly rates and a booked calendar.
At BTD we help our clients design, set up and cohost their second homes as a vacation rental. After several years of answering the same questions over and over, I realized there are no courses that help people that currently own a vacation home, but would like to rent it out. There are several blogs, websites, and podcasts that teach how to run a successful Airbnb. However none of them are for clients like mine. They love their house. They are sad they can’t stay there as often as possible. They want to learn how to rent it successfully, to vetted guests, and know their home will be properly cared for. But they are very overwhelmed by all of the unknowns, and afraid of making costly mistakes.
I am teaching this course to help you learn what this process looks like, so you can do it yourself and save hours and hours of research. I've spent 7 years as an owner, host, cohost and short term rental designer, learning the ins and outs so that you can learn in just 7 easy modules!
