Software to help you host

We recently had a message through from Oriana, one of our readers, asking us the following; “I’m finding the need to have some sort of management software to consolidate my bookings, calendar, cleaning etc. I was curious to see what do you guys use. I need help!” Well, we can help with this one……….Big Time!


Interior Hints For Hosts

So this month we’re kicking off a new part of the blog providing you with a break down on some interior tips on how you could increase your guests experience and hence future bookings for your listing/s. It is going to be mainly written by me, Fiona! Not because Phil is not good in this area, on the contrary…


Chips Tips

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all! To our fellow hosts, hope you had a great break over Christmas but benefited from the tourists who like to get away over the festive season. For us we spent our holidays in Barcelona and had a busy Christmas and New year’s week with reservations, now we’ve been…


We’re back….

The Ourbnb Company Wheels

Here is the latest edition to our family. Last year with the first apartment going back and forth with the large blue Ikea bags was not too much of a hassle. It’s only two blocks away and a few trips a week. But with our new apartments it soon became apparent that we needed a solution to get…


Ourbnb & Airbnb Meet Up

Airbnb got in contact with us last week to ask if we would like to meet and have some photos taken for part of a Christmas promotion. Of course we would!
