We openly invite short-term rental hosts to take our online “Host Interview”, that shares their experiences as a host. For those that would like to do the interview with us, we’ll post your story on our website and all our social media channels. The “Host Interview” stories have helped our users’ businesses in the past by giving them exposure to potential guests and other hosts. This week, read the question and answer session with Piero Asso from Florence Italy.
