The Industry In A Drop

For a (relatively) new industry like short term rentals, it's hard to find authoritative, singular resources that cover the gamut of information you need to know, primarily because best practices haven't been established yet. Susanne has managed to do what few have and that is distill our industry's must-know knowledge down into a book. If you are entering the industry, please read this thing -- you'll be exponentially more educated (and therefore, less prone to costly mistakes). Just to note, I have never endorsed a book like this.

The most comprehensive vacation rental guide I have ever read and an invaluable resource.

I share it with every owner I work with

The first time I read this book I added sticky notes throughout the entire thing! After reading it again and again and again I've added more notes, underlines and dog eared pages. As someone who works with multiple owners of vacation rentals in both the US and Canada I can say there is a TON of valuable information in this book no matter what stage of the game you are in. I gift a copy to every client - and they all can't believe the gold they find within this book. Use it and you'll quickly make your money back just by reading one chapter!

Fantastic resource for vacation rental and Airbnb owners

I cannot tell you enough how much this book has helped our clients, who are Airbnb and short-term rental owners and managers. If you haven't read this book, you will be at a distinct disadvantage in this business. From marketing, decorating, branding, listing descriptions, websites, this book covers everything you need to know to get started or to upgrade your vacation rental bookings.

Great Find!

I highly recommend this book. It has been of great value to me, in preparing to launch my first beach rental. It covers all aspects of preparing, maintaining, and improving a successful rental, in a simplified manner. I have kept it open on my cellular for the last 5 months to reference. Best investment you'll make, for a small cost.

Best Book on the Vacation Rental Industry!!!!!

Book was very comprehensive and detailed. Susanne goes into detail on how to set up your vacation rental property from start to the end. With the details from her book and her expertise we were able to launch our Airbnb with less headache and with more confidence. In 6 months of launching our Airbnb we have made $12,000. My wife and I definitely recommend you read this book if you are in the vacation rental industry.
