Want to attract more direct bookings so that all your eggs aren’t in one basket?
Wish you could find guests who stay longer and make your life easier?
I'm the Founder at Epicurean Properties; a luxury provider of furnished rentals based in Columbus, Ohio.
I don’t do a lot of consulting, but I’m happy to accept the occasional call and show other short-term rental hosts how to get more direct bookings and attract longer stays.
We started on Airbnb like most people, but today 95% of our guests book directly and for minimum stays of 30+ nights.
We grew to 7 figures in annual sales by our 2nd year, and I'm happy to share exactly how we did it.
I've been a full-time entrepreneur since age 23.
My first "real" business was a valet trash & recycling company that I founded with a friend in 2010.
In 5 years, we built that business to 7 figures in revenue with teams in 5 cities across the Midwest.
We were acquired in 2018 by the largest company in our industry, marking my first successful exit from an entrepreneurial venture.
