Below, you'll find tips for safe and effective Hosting, helping you create a winning listing, choose guests, and be prepared for contingencies.
Your listing is your full-color brochure and your rule book. Taking the time to make it shine and to clarify your rules and expectations will pay off.
There are three main components that make up an awesome listing: the listing description, photographs, and the house rules.
Describe your listing in detail. What kind of things would you like to know about the listing if you were considering renting it? Does it have a view? Is it near local attractions? Does getting to the front door require ascending a lot of stairs? Be creative, but honest.
Photos are an integral part of the decision making process when it comes to booking a Nudist property. For recommendations on how to make your photos stand out, see Photo Tips.
Do you have expectations about age, occupancy restrictions, and guest behavior? If yes, say so. Conditions for check in, such as identification, rental agreements, and key pickup, should also be listed here.
Security deposits provide priceless peace of mind, and they're an easy feature to add to your listing. When hosting, minor damage to your Nudist property can and will occur. A broken dish, a stain on the carpet, a cracked window or a hole in a wall can accidentally occur at any time. A reasonable and refundable security deposit will act as a small insurance policy for both you, the Host, and your Nudist Guest.
You can set custom parameters for messages and reservation requests, which means guests who don't meet your requirements can't send you a message or attempt a reservation until they fulfill your requirements.
Selections for reservation requirements include: verified phone numbers, complete profiles with photos and descriptions, location information, and trip context or purpose.
For your convenience, you can set cleaning fees that will be automatically collected each time you accept a reservation. These are typically not refunded after your Nudist Guest's stay, and should not be confused with a Security Deposit.
Purchasing an insurance policy is a simple, affordable way to protect your property. Some Insurance Policies do not cover damage incurred by Guests. We recommend speaking with your insurance provider to explore your options.
Asking questions is a major part of the screening process. Get to know your potential guests and make sure you have a comfortable rapport. We recommend scheduling a phone call instead of emailing. Be prepared to answer the guest's questions, as well.
Here are some preliminary questions to get the ball rolling:
Make sure that guests have completed their profile verifications. If they haven't, ask them to do so.
Check for verified phone numbers, connected social networks like Facebook, and references.
A positive review is perhaps the best indication of the authenticity of your potential guest. Because Bare Naked Rentals's reviews are a snapshot of a real experience between parties, it's a good indication of your guest's reputation and how they have conducted themselves not only in the reservation process, but in any previous rental experiences.
If, after corresponding with a guest, you are hesitant about accepting a rental request for any reason, trust your instincts. At Bare Naked Rentals, you are never under any obligation to accept a reservation.
