Summary

I started writing Optimize Your Airbnb in July 2017 while staying at an Airbnb in Estonia. I met Veronika while exploring Old Town Tallinn. When I found out Veronika was an Airbnb host, I asked to see her listing. I saw potential, but her online listing wasn't much. I told Veronika about how I optimize Airbnb listings. We agreed that I would stay at her listing for a small discount in exchange for a fully optimized Airbnb listing. As of November 2017, Veronika has 10 five-star reviews.

I wrote Optimize Your Airbnb to reach more hosts like Veronika. This book contains the culmination of my five-year experience with Airbnb from being an employee and a guest, to a host, to Superhost, and to starting an Airbnb property management company. I've hosted everything from a living room couch to a three-story, five-bedroom hillside mansion. The information in this book is more complete and effective than anything on the market.

Trouble deciding between which book to buy? To ensure my book is the most comprehensive, I read 13 of the top Airbnb books on the market. You can read my review of these books on Amazon.

You will learn how to:

  • Optimize your Airbnb listing to achieve a high Airbnb search rank
  • Leverage tools to automate 80 percent+ of your Airbnb
  • Interior design without professional help
  • Successfully navigate slow season
  • Identify problem Airbnb guests before they book
  • Master your Airbnb title and text

Best information but poor presentation

The information in the book is by far the best on the subject of Airbnb there is on the market at this time in my opinion and I have read them all. I did not give 5 stars because the speaker was hard to follow and the sound quality at times was mediocre at best. It was like being taught how to perform an intense surgery by the eyedrop guy, as the speaker is extremely monotone. Because of this, I've had to replay the book 4 times in order to catch the necessary information, as his voice is painfully boring and easy to get distracted from. I hope you find this helpful and good luck in your endeavors.

Great content - Awful Narrator

The content of this book is great! It covers all aspects of running an airbnb in a very through way. It is not superficial at all and if you are looking to run an airbnb, this is the book for you!
HOWEVER - the narrator is TERRIBLE... He is very awkward and robotic: it’s like listening to the gps lady read an entire book. Just when you think a sentence ends, the narrator pauses, the goes on... it is robotic and unnatural and distracting making it difficult to understand at times. Looking back, I wish I had bought the hardcopy instead...

not ideal for audio

this book is not ideal for the audio format. it is full of links and beneficial information which can be accessed through the website which is referenced multiple times throughout the book. however care could have been taken to make the audio format more engaging.

Loved it! Get it!

This book is on the top of my list of "business vacation rental must have books". I was amazed at the amount of solid information in this book. Danny gives examples and techniques so that you can apply these techniques in your own business. Absolutely worth not only the money, but your valuable time in reading it.

Highly Valuable Information!

We highly recommend this book to hosts and travelers!

We are just setting up our Airbnb business and found incredibly helpful information in every chapter, saving us a lot of time and helping our business be very lucrative from the start.

So grateful to Danny for his experience and expertise.

We also found this information helpful as a guest as we travel and love using Airbnb.

A must for anyone interested in Airbnb!

Incredibly detailed resource for Airbnb hosts

I found the book to be thorough, well organized and easy to understand. Unfortunately the book references the ebook for pictures and printed material. Wish he had provided a PDF for the audiobook version. The narrator was very formal sounding at times.

Very useful info

I listened in small increments and got a lot of valuable info this way that was easy to remember, by the time I reached the end.
The narrator was great.

The only downside is that there were a few photos that you would have to look at in the book to grasp the full concept as not all of them had a detailed description.
