Airbnb Sunshine Coast Host Club launched in March 2018. There is a growing Airbnb community on the Sunshine Coast filled with passionate people who take pride in sharing their homes and what the Sunshine Coast has to offer. For some hosts, home sharing on the Airbnb platform allows them to make a little extra income and pay the mortgage or bills.
This new club gives hosts more opportunities to support each other and share advice. Topics covered at the launch include the flow on effects for local small businesses when guests stay in non-traditional tourist areas, council rules and regulations, the vision of the club going forward and hosting tips and tricks to welcome guests. Hosts were also very interested in how to get involved in community services and initiatives.
All meetups are designed differently with a calendar of various topics and speakers throughout the year. These social get-togethers are an extremely popular way for hosts to meet face to face, talk about issues that are important to them and share insights on how to be better hosts.
