Supreme Bnb Rentals During the Time of COVID19
Supreme BNB is Perth’s ultimate short stay management company for individuals that own rental properties.
We’ll discuss more about this later, but for now, we want to address the elephant in the room, which is the current coronavirus pandemic.
Our Coronavirus Pledge
Let us start with the obvious. There has never been a more trying time, and hopefully, there will never be again such a difficult time in the Air BnB rental business.
With all international and interstate travel banned and strict social distancing, rules have usually meant one of there things for Airbnb super hosts in Western Australia:
- Cancellations of bookings
- Extended stays and bookings for people from overseas and interstate
- The setup and strict regulations of Quarantine style Airbnb’s for FYFO industry workers
And unfortunately for our clients, Airbnb has invoked special contingency rules for refunds of cancelled reservations.
Airbnb’s Refund Policy During the Pandemic
Airbnb has elected to invoke its extenuating circumstances clause due to the COVD-19 pandemic.
Can You Still Rent Your Airbnb?
At the current time, yes. The Australian government has not demanded that any BnB’s shut down, and many Airbnb owners & hosts are proactively renting their homes as Cornoavirus retreats or Coronacation’s as we call them.
Primarily for Australian and New Zealand residents only, these hosts are stocking up their BnB with food, essentials such as canned goods, cooking utensil’s, bottled water, toilet paper, soap, toothpaste and all the essentials for a couple or a family to self-quarantine for two or even three weeks.
How Can We Help?
We at Supreme BNB have a prepared list of essentials we think a couple or family would need to self-quarantine, and we will be happy to share this list with anyone of our clients who calls.
In addition, we are in the process of preparing self-quarantine packages so that any potential renter not only has a place to self-quarantine but has access to local phone numbers for doctors, hospitals and clinics, as well as a list of internet sites to keep track of the pandemic news. You’ll also want to include a list of the most popular restaurants that provide takeout.
The idea is you want to do ensure your rental is a true respite for those who need a relaxing place to quarantine.
Also, speak to us about your current pricing. Prices for rentals may fluctuate greatly during the pandemic, and you don’t want to be shut out completely from the market.
And for those who don’t choose to rent during this time, we recommend you use the downtime to paint, replace furnishings etc., to be ready for the vacation rush that will surely follow after the pandemic is over!
Our Cleaning Service
We know that one of the reason many of our clients ask us to manage their BnB is due to our cleaning service. We do clean everything from top to bottom, so your next guest always has a pleasant visit.
Never the less, effective immediately we have doubled our cleaning service. After a shower or toilet is clean, for example, it is wiped down again with a disposable disinfectant cloth. Linens are washed with the hottest possible water, as well as all silverware. We also double vacuum, or double mop your floors.
That being said, after each visit, we recommend hosts contact a reputable cleaning company to defog your house to ensure no viruses remain in the house.
If you have any questions about the cleaning element of our business, feel free to call.
Your Minimum Length of Stay
Our hosts have visitors that stay for one or two days, but during the pandemic, we recommend you lengthen your minimum stay to 7 days. It is far easier for you to manage perhaps two tenants staying in your Airbnb during the month than it is to have 8 or 10 clients. Later, when the pandemic is finished, go back and review your minimum stay policy.
Redo Your Photos
If you are going to hold yourself out as a respite during the Coronavirus, then you’ll certainly want new photos showing completely restocked pantries, a bathroom with all the necessities, etc. Did you add a barbecue, lawn chairs or exercise equipment to help your guests deal with the boredom? Then show it in your updated photos.
The Post Pandemic Rush
Even if you completely lock down your BnB for rental during these stressful and every shifting times, one thing is clear. Once the pandemic is over, we expect to see a rush and a big one at that in Airbnb rentals.
One of the reasons that Supreme BNB is so successful is that we carefully screen potential tenants based on past BnB owner reviews.
When the rush hits, you don’t want to open your doors to deadbeats, clients that love to party till 2 a.m. each night disturbing the neighbours, or people with pets that will destroy your Airbnb.
You want carefully selected clients that will be respectful of your property, and Supreme BNB will ensure that’s what you get.
About Supreme Bnb
Supreme Bnb aims to provide investors in a Bnb property with a “Set it and Forget it” approach.
From marketing your Bnb, screening your potential tenants, taking care of check-in and check-out service and cleaning your BnB after a tenant leaves, our aim is two-fold:
- To provide each guest with a 5-star experience, they will rate and rave about us on Airbnb.
- To provide you with a 100 per cent occupancy rate
And at the same time do as little as possible and let Supreme Bnb handle the details.
Supreme Bnb has a fantastic booking system, will turn the description of your rental into a vibrant experience that renters will want to experience, and is available to your tenant 24-7 to handle minor emergencies.
Virtually all of our clients are on our social media list, and we will keep each one of you informed of vital information connected with BnB rental such as the current pandemic news.
Most importantly, all of of our Supreme BNB staff love what we do. It’s an exciting business; we want to be the best Airbnb management service in all of Australia.
Each month we get glowing letters of thank you from your tenants telling us what a fantastic experience they had and how they planned on booking with us next vacation as well.
And of course, we are very close to our clients who regularly praise how easy we have made their BnB business.
