In a dynamic and ever-evolving marketplace like Airbnb, the experience of your property management company can make a significant difference in the success of your rental. Recently, Airbnb started showcasing how long hosts have been with the platform—a subtle yet powerful indicator of reliability and expertise. At Open Air Homes, we believe this is a pivotal metric for guests and homeowners alike.

Are you considering adding a co-host to your listing or working with a “fully remote” company that charges a low rate? Let us show you why a local, experienced property manager like Open Air Homes is the better choice.  

A Decade of Excellence in Property Management

Since 2013, Open Air Homes has led the short-term rental industry, providing homeowners with unmatched expertise and consistently high guest satisfaction.

Founded after my personal stint managing my own home on Airbnb beginning in 2011, we’ve built a reputation anchored on deep industry knowledge and consistent performance. With an impressive average of 4.91 stars across 11 years of hosting, our track record is not just a number—it’s a testament to our dedication and expertise in creating exceptional guest experiences.

What Sets Us Apart?

  1. Superior Guest Attraction: As Airbnb SuperHosts and VRBO Premier Hosts, our properties are positioned to attract more views and bookings.
  2. Exceptional Performance Metrics: Our occupancy rate and average nightly rates significantly outperform market averages. For instance, in Venice Beach, our properties enjoy a 74% occupancy rate compared to the 58% market average, and our average nightly rate is $445 versus the market’s $318.
  3. Medium-term Rental Focus: We specialize in medium-term rentals ranging from 30-90 days. This focus attracts homeowners seeking less turnover and more stability in their rental income.

Why Longevity Matters

Airbnb’s decision to display a host’s tenure is more than a feature—it’s a tool for building trust. When guests see that we have been hosting for over a decade, it speaks volumes about our stability and deep-rooted understanding of the platform. This longevity is crucial in a sector where new hosts can pop up overnight. It assures potential guests and homeowners that we are not just another pop-up operation but a seasoned entity committed to excellence.

Building Trust With New Listings

Introducing new properties to our platform brings its own set of challenges, notably the initial lack of reviews which can deter potential guests. However, our long-standing reputation and extensive portfolio of highly-rated homes provide a crucial leverage point. Guests might hesitate to book a new listing with no reviews, but the trust in our brand, built on consistent positive feedback across our properties, alleviates these concerns. They feel confident that even our newest listings will deliver the quality and experience synonymous with Open Air Homes.

A Future Built on Experience

The journey with Airbnb has been transformative. We’ve witnessed various market shifts, observed competitors rise and fall, and have continuously adapted to ensure our services remain top-tier. This adaptability and resilience underscore our commitment to not just surviving but thriving in the competitive Los Angeles market.

With the short term rental more competitive than ever, setting yourself up for success involves ensuring that you build a solid base of 5 star reviews from day one.  More and more co-hosts are getting into the industry, and we applaud Airbnb for making it easy for individuals to start co-hosting businesses from scratch and grow.  However, issues do arise in this industry. Choosing a company like Open Air Homes, with 11 years of experience handling every possible scenario, ensures peace of mind when renting your home.

Further, there are a growing number of “virtual property managers” who attempt to manage your home from afar, for as low as 15% commission.  We have taken on management of a number of homes that first started on this route, only to realize that not having a local company to consistently check on their home, and address guest concerns, lead to a number of bad reviews, unhappy guests and neighbors, and overall poor performance. Our team at Open Air Homes has offices in both Los Angeles and Palm Springs, with local on-the-ground support for any issue that arises.
