Meet Natacha, an Airbnb host who shares her home to finance the maintenance of her house

Why did you choose to share your home?

Unfortunately, I only receive a small pension. I live in a house that I could no longer maintain. So I decided to become an Airbnb host to finance the maintenance.

Why do you love sharing your home? 

As I no longer travel, it’s a good way of “travelling at home”. Meeting guests from all over the world keeps me entertained. I really enjoy sharing a cup of coffee with my guests in the morning or even a nice Belgian beer. These types of activities provide the opportunity to chat for a little while and enable us to get to know each other better.

What local gem do you recommend to your guests?

I have made a list of all of the friendly shops in my neighbourhood on the Ixelles district map. I encourage guests to visit the restaurants “Les Filles” and “L’entrée des artistes”, which are two very successful establishments.
