Hi I am Merryn, the founder of “Host Your Home” and I would like to share a little about myself and my team.
My love of travelling and staying at Airbnb’s both in Australia and overseas, led me to host my own investment property on the Sunshine Coast. I changed from long term to short term letting to increase my rental yields and wanted to provide visitors to our beautiful area, a cosy and comfortable home to stay in. I quickly received great reviews and ‘superhost’ status. I wanted to continue offering such services while I was away, but needed trusted people to help me. So, on return from a trip to Bali, as I was mopping my BnB floors and reading another fabulous review from a guest, the Host Your Home seed was planted.
During my lengthy professional career in education, I have become an expert multi-tasker and am responsive to peoples’ needs.
Host Your Home offers a personalised service by local people who know the Sunshine Coast well and aim to help your visitors relax and enjoy their time here, whilst also assisting you to keep your place ‘guest ready’. This may mean contacting specialized tradespeople to help you or using our staff to purchase items that will make your guests stay 4 or 5 stars and gain great reviews. I believe it’s the personal touch that makes your guest want to come back again and again.
