Airbnb Services Ranging from Consulting to Set Up

Well Designed Airbnb = Great Marketing Photos = More Clicks = More Bookings =

 More Money!

Whether you're looking to upgrade an existing short-term rental or starting from scratch, we offer a variety of packages to serve you. The best place to start is a consultation. From there, both Larimar and the short-term rental owner and/or host(s) can determine what, if any, additional services will be needed. Every package will be custom quoted depending on the scope of work. There is no way we can offer estimates for these services over the phone without providing a consultation first. Please click here to view our fees for consultations.

  • CONSULTATION - Start here if your goal is to raise both your occupancy rate and your nightly rate. We can offer a consultation on-site at your rental property, or online via Zoom.
  • design concept and layoutThis package INCLUDES design CONCEPT BOARDs AND FURNITURE LAYOUT plans for each room/space in the rental property.
  • SOURCING - Larimar will provide the sources and shoppable links of the items in the concept boards. The CLIENTS will take responsibility for the shopping themselves and HANDLE ordering, tracking, RECEIVING, inspection, returns and exchanges, interim STORAGE and delivery to the rental property OF all needed ITEMS
  • PROCUREMENT AND INSTALLATION - Rather than do the shopping themselves, the Clients will purchase all items directly from Larimar, who will handle all ordering, receiving, inspecting, returns and exchanges, assembly, interim storage, delivery, layout, laundering the linens, washing the dishes before putting them away, making the beds, styling the decor....  We will get the rental property guest-ready. Marketing photos are included in this package. 
  • Styling - This package is great for those who elect to handle the procurement themselves, and would like Larimar to come in after the furnishings are delivered and assembled to set up the layout, style the beds, and put on the the other finishing touches needed to get the rental property photo-ready. Marketing photos are included in this package.
  • VIRTUAL guidance - cLIENTS WILL TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR procurement, but will get remote guidance from Larimar via Zoom and/or Facetime when it comes time to get everything into place and styled. A Larimar stylist will accompany you on A VIRTUAL WALK-THROUGH TO HELP YOU WITH ALL THE FINISHING TOUCHES. This is A GREAT OPTION FOR THOSE OUTSIDE OUR SERVICE AREA (SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA).
  • marketing package - Larimar will procure professional photography of the property, and create the photo captions, property description, and Guest Welcome Book. We can create the listing on your behalf on the platform of your choice, or simply provide you with the photos, captions, and description to add yourself. The Welcome Book will be professionally printed and illustrated in full color. A pdf of the Welcome Book will also be provided should you need to edit and reprint at a later time.
  • Turnover System Creation - It's imperative that your rental look like the marketing photos every time a guest checks in. If it looks different, or there are amenities missing that were promised in your listing, you could end up with negative reviews. Larimar will train your turnover team to reset the stage each time, as well as create a turnover instruction booklet. We will also provide a supply list in spreadsheet format for your team to use to track par levels of consumables.

Competition on Airbnb and other short-term and vacation rental platforms is fierce! Every month, there are 14,000 new hosts on the Airbnb platform alone. Growth means more supply, and lackluster listings are no longer cutting it. To compete, your listing needs to stand out above the others. If you simply bought a cheap investment property, spent no money updating it, and are furnishing it with worn, outdated, mismatched second-hand junk from garage sales or Facebook Marketplace, you may have saved money in the short-term setting up your rental, but in the long-term, it isn't going to be as profitable as it could. Owning a short-term rental is a business, and for your business to be profitable, you need to invest in it. 

Airbnb and other vacation rental platforms are search engines, so search engine optimization (SEO) is vital in getting more exposure (and more bookings). The title, captions, and photos all matter when attempting to generate better SEO and more interest in your rental property. Reviews are also considered, and great Airbnbs that are well-designed, comfortable, and well-stocked for hospitality get great reviews. All of this will get your rental better SEO, more viewings, and more bookings.

Larimar Home Staging can offer a re-design of your existing Airbnb, using as much as possible of what you already have in the rental, or we can create a fresh, new design from scratch. We can offer one or more of the a la carte services listed below, or we can put together a full service package where we create the Airbnb from an empty space to the first booked guest. Contact us to schedule a consultation.

Our full service packages are only available for short-term rentals in Southern California (or those willing to pay our travel expenses), but many of the services listed above can be provided remotely using a variety of online services and platforms.

We are more than happy to offer consulting and design for all vacation rentals on all platforms, such as VRBO, HomeAway, Booking.com, Expedia, and TripAdviser; but when it comes to our marketing strategy for vacation rentals and specific requirements for design and hospitality, we strive to meet the standards Airbnb seeks to qualify for their Airbnb Plus designation. Since Airbnb Plus has very high quality standards, if your vacation rental meets those, you'll probably do quite well on other platforms.
