62 - Peter Lorimer of Netflix series 'Stay Here' on running a moneymaking AirBNB
Peter Lorimer is co-host of the Netflix series "Stay Here," which helps property owners turn their AirBNB listings into beautiful moneymakers.
The show is a fun mix of design, business and travel.
He, along with design guru Genevieve Gorder, traveled around the country and transformed short-term rental spaces like a houseboat in Seattle and a swanky Malibu beach pad.
Lorimer says the key to becoming a "super host" is to view the property like a small hotel. Make everything convenient for the guest, and store items in places that make sense so they won't have to go looking for them (think towels, sheets, utensils, etc.).
He also says small touches can go a long way when it comes to a guest's experience. Keeping higher-end toiletries stocked, champagne in the fridge and local travel guides for entertainment ideas can make all the difference.
Peter, originally from the U.K., started as a music producer and eventually began investing in property around Los Angeles. He now runs the real estate agency PLG Estates, which he launched in 2010.
He joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about how he landed the show, some of the best AirBNB listings he's ever stayed in, tips for hosts and red flags for anyone looking to book their next weekend getaway!
