Attention Short-Term Rental Hosts + Property Managers

Short on time, but want to showcase your professionalism to guests?

Let us do the hard work for you.

Many aspects of the guest experience happen in writing. Whether you are marketing a rental in your listing description, or clearly conveying house rules, your words make a difference.

Running your short-term rental property as a true professional means happy guests + great reviews

No guest wants to feel like they've paid hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars to stay with an amateur! And, when it comes to professionalism, your words matter.

Airbnb identified the 7 key moments of guest communication:

Inquiry stage: guests are looking to book with you. How do you respond to their initial requests?

At the time of booking: the guests have given you their hard-earned money. Now, how do you get them excited and set the right expectations?

Pre-arrival: how do you make sure your guests have all of the right information for a smooth arrival?

At check-in: did the guests easily get inside? Are they happy?

After the first night’s stay: a quick, friendly message confirms everything meets the guests' expectations.

Before checkout: set the stage for building an ongoing guest relationship.

Pro Hosts and Superhosts offer a fantastic guest experience—and, yep, that includes communicating effectively with guests through all 7 Key Moments listed above!

Not to mention the moments not listed, like enticing potential guests in the first place with your written property description, outlining your house rules in a way that makes sense, ensuring the property's cleanliness exceeds the expectations of even your pickiest guests...

It's... a lot. You really do have to earn those five stars! But that doesn't mean you can't take a few shortcuts here and there.

That's where we come in.

Property Description Listing Workbook (Value: $100)

Since 2015, Guest Hook has helped hundreds of short-term rental hosts create property descriptions that set them apart. Our Property Description Listing Workbook is great for those who prefer a lighter investment than hiring our pro copywriters, yet don't want to go it alone. Let us help you create a listing that shines, using your own words! This part of the template pack alone is worth $100. But wait, there's more!

Your Image

Welcome Letter (Value: $49)

Greet your guests with a well-written welcome letter that shows you appreciate them. This is especially important if you are not able to meet your guests in person upon arrival! It's one of those small things that makes a big difference.

Your Image

House Rules (Value: $49)

When it comes to your house rules, the most important part is clearly communicating them! With our House Rules template, we cover all of the most important bases to protect your investment and keep everyone happy (including the neighbors).

Your Image

Checkout Instructions (Value: $49)

Don't bury your checkout instructions in an email or your guidebook! Print a copy, too, and leave them in a visible spot to ensure a seamless, stress-free checkout process.

Your Image

Emergency Contact Information (Value: $29)

To keep your guests safe, print and display emergency contact info in a highly visible spot (like on your fridge). Simply fill in the template with info on nearby urgent care facilities, hospitals, and more.

Your Image

Door Signage (Value: $49)

Use this template and place it on the back of your rental’s door to provide your contact information and to remind your guests to book direct next time! This is also a great place to offer a discount code for returning guests.

Your Image

Safety Checklist (Value: $49)

The Pro Host Template Pack also includes non guest-facing checklists that are vital to running a professional rental. We created this Safety Checklist for you (or your property management team) to complete thorough, routine safety checks of the property that ensure guests are protected... and so are you.

Your Image

Cleaning Checklist (Value: $100)

Some of the worst reviews in the short-term rental industry are the result of sub-par cleaning. Use this Cleaning Checklist (and pass along to your cleaning crew!) to organize your changeovers and make sure nothing is missed.

Your Image

Rate Your Stay (Value: $29)

Our Rate Your Stay template is a great way to nudge guests into reviewing their stay and providing you with essential feedback. Print these and leave them in your rental so guests can fill them out—or email it for them to complete when they get home.

Your Image

The "Top 5" (Value: $29)

Detailed, multi-page guidebooks for guests are great, but sometimes it's also helpful to keep it short, sweet and to-the-point for busy guests. Summarize your favorites with our "Top 5" templates, which point to your five most-recommended restaurants and top five activities. QR code version available, too!

Your Image

WiFi (Value: $29)

Drastically decrease the numbers of texts and calls you receive asking for your WiFi info by using this template, which can be prominently displayed in your rental for those who want to get connected ASAP. QR code version available, too!

You could re-create all of these templates on your own time... or hire a designer and copywriter to create them for you. But why do either of those, when you can save hours of your life and hundreds of dollars with our ready-made templates?

Single STR/VR Property Description

Our descriptions include each section that you’ll need for a compelling listing on both Airbnb, Vrbo and your own website! Add-on a professionally written description.

We'll write for you:

An Irresistible & Clickable Headline
The key to a showing off all that your property has to offer is a great lead image/thumbnail and a great headline! Your headline is the first thing your potential guest will see, so we write punchy and clickable headlines.

Location Description & The Neighborhood
Sure, we’re here to sell the rental, but it’s still about the location, right? Here, we dive into the nearby neighborhood and community or area and share why it’s a phenomenal place to book a stay.

Interaction With Guests
Not all short-term rentals/Airbnb listings have the same in-person interaction with guests. If you host from afar, we’ll share that, or write up a friendly message for this part of the description if you’re on-site or local. 

About The Host / About The Manager
Guests don’t just book a property: they have to trust their host or manager! Make sure your bio/about the host section tells a story about what you have to offer and why you’re involved in short-term rentals in the first place.

The Short Description
Once a guest dives into your listing, the main “meat” of your description is the short description (Airbnb) or primary description (Vrbo + others). This is your chance to share the key facts and tell a story about what makes your rental unique! 

Features Description & Other Things To Note
Have a pool? Hot tub? Beach access? Smart TV? Even more? Show off all that your property has to offer in the property features section of your description! Here, our copywriter will focus on your primary selling points and make this copy sizzle with all you offer your guests.

Getting There & Transit
Guests want to know it all! So, help them understand how to get to your property (plane, train, bus, sea, by car) and arrive in style.

Property Access Information
Okay, I’ve booked, now how do I get in?! Guests want to know the process to rest their head on your bed.
