    This week Luke is joined by his good friend and seasoned property manager, Chuck Kramer, to share some real-world experiences and tips on managing parties at your Airbnb. Chuck shares a story about an incident at his beach property where a seemingly normal booking turned into a party with about 70 kids. Despite taking precautions like collecting IDs and being extra vigilant during spring break, the party still happened. Chuck explains what methods he used to monitor the situation and reveals what it took to clear the party out. They discuss the aftermath of the party and emphasize the importance of clear communication with your guests.

If You’re Not Listening You’re Losing

I’ve learned and continue to learn about STRs from Luke and Avery, and I wouldn’t be doing so well with my cabin if it weren’t for their knowledge!
