Start Hosting on Airbnb and Get Paid, San Diego!

Call for Airbnb hosts in San Diego! Help our city shine this summer and make an extra $200.

All Star Game Week is history and another Comic-Con is in the books. But there’s still time to take advantage of this offer from Airbnb and me. Have you signed up to host guests with Airbnb?

Have you thought about taking a vacation, maybe traveling the world, and making money renting out your home, apartment, or rooms while you sip on Mojitos in Costa Rica? If you live within 25 miles of San Diego, Airbnb and I can help you make this happen!

I’m very excited to have partnered with Airbnb, and to be able to share with you a special offer exclusively you, my readers!

Airbnb will pay you a $200 bonus when you list and complete a host booking in San Diego between now and September 30th, 2016!

Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world—online or from a mobile phone or tablet.

Core to Airbnb is its host community, which in San Diego is made up of thousands of locals actively welcoming travelers into their homes. As the numbers of travelers coming to San Diego continues to grow, Airbnb is also looking to grow its host community.

The demand for hosts in San Diego is heating up. The amount of visitors expected to flock to America’s Finest City to enjoy our city’s beaches and attractions means lodging will be tight and at a premium.

By signing up on Airbnb to become a host you could earn enough money to make your travel dreams come true.

To give you an idea of your earning potential, Airbnb hosts in San Diego can make up to $4,000 per month in the summer!*

Listen, I know home-sharing isn’t for everyone. Personally, we are not in a position to open our home to guests, strangers if you will,  but wish we were.

However, we’ve used Airbnb short-term rentals in Paris, London, and Amsterdam without any problems. And our college-age daughter relied on Airbnb (and so did I) when she was studying abroad in Paris and traveled throughout Europe.

The difference between a hotel and a private home is that we just didn’t travel there, we lived there and felt like locals. The only glitch we’ve encountered staying with an Airbnb host (we rented a whole apartment) was running out of TP. Ha! We had to buy our own. But it was these experiences that made us feel more than just tourists in these cities.

These are not trips looking for the lowest cost option. They’re trips looking for an authentic, memorable experience. That is what Airbnb provides and the traditional hoteliers cannot. As this map of Airbnb properties shows, people want to live like a local when they visit, not stay in a plain, isolated Hotel Circle room with no residents or attractions nearby. They want to see what being a San Diegan is like and that’s a great thing – an opportunity to show why this is a fantastic place to live. Voice of San Diego

Whether you’re an empty nester and have a spare room or two, or if you don’t want to leave your home or apartment sitting empty while you take off to Europe for a few weeks, Airbnb is the most popular way to earn extra income by putting your spare rooms or home to work for you!

I see I’ve piqued your interest. Let me help you take the host leap and consider these benefits:

  • Earn extra income: Let your extra space go to work for you. Hosts use income from Airbnb to help pay bills, pursue their passions, and improve their homes.
  • Host when you want: It’s your home, after all—so share it as often as you want. Make your availability known to travelers on your listing’s calendar.
  • Welcome the world: Bring the world to your door. Make new friends and connect with people from every corner of the globe.
  • Belong to a community: You’re not doing this alone. As an Airbnb host, you become part of the global community. Get support, learn from fellow hosts, and meet your neighbors.

Your home isn’t going anywhere, but you can. Become a host, and start living the wanderlust years.

Go ahead. Sign up. It’s easy.

The bonus cash offer is valid for new Airbnb hosts in the San Diego area.

      Abbigayle, we used Airbnb in London — stayed near Portobello Road. You should look into it. It’s so convenient!

      Yes, please share this offer, Angela! This summer is going to be a unique one for San Diego with the All Star Game and Comic-Con both in July. I hope your friends, or their friends, can take advantage of this window of opportunity to make a little extra money.
