What is Co-Hosting and How do I Become One?
Before becoming a co-host, it's important to know what that actually means. Airbnb defines someone who is hosting on behalf of the owner as a "co-host." On Airbnb, hosts are responsible for the process from beginning to end - including staying in contact with the guests upon booking, during their stay and providing them with information on the area. Co-hosts are responsible for being the point of contact from start to finish - including going through check in procedures, scheduling cleaners, providing quality assurance, answering questions about the property or city as needed and staying in touch until they depart.
