Airbnb’s Northeast Executive visit Niagara on the Lake Vacation Rentals along with Toronto Short Term Rental Property Management Corp.
This past Friday NOTL Vacation Rentals, Toronto Short Term Rental Property Management Corp. and Airbnb executive’ Daniel and Lucy held a planning session and tour of Niagara on the Lake.
The goal of this trip was to showcase Niagara on the Lake as an Airbnb Experience and pull the Management Teams together for a planning session to discuss a multitude of topics and point our some of the experiences that Niagara on the Lake offers our guests from all over the world.
For dinner we chose The Epicurean Restaurant as one of the great culinary options in the area. We could not have picked a better place! Some of our guests were Vegan so we contacted the Owner Gina and the rest is a lasting memory. Gina and the entire team at the restaurant were fantastic, Gina whipped up a multi course meal for us that was outstanding!
We toured Niagara on the Lake and did some shopping as well. Daniel and Lucy pointed out one of the shops that stood out for them, One Earth at 187 Victoria Street. Strangely enough, our partners. Through some discussion with the Owner, Terri-Lynn, Daniel will be identifying One Earth as an “Experiences” in the region for their workshops, product and simply a great story. I’ll let Daniel say the rest in the experiences section of Airbnb’s platform.
Our partner Niagara Custom Tours has been identified as an experience and will be communicated through the platform as well.
Some of the topic’s we discussed are as follows:
Based on guest feedback a big topic is the ability to collect HST tax through the AirBnB platform and provide our tax number to guests. While Airbnb is not there yet, it is on the Radar.
How we best identify and improve the Airbnb’s “Experiences” in Niagara on the Lake and all municipalities we service. We identified a few immediate ones and will be working on improvements to this platform going forward.
Our planning session did not end at the above topics and I’ll save the other items we discussed for a later date when we are able to celebrate the success of each enhancement/improvement we identified as action plan items. We encourage you to watch for these updates.
Daniel and Lucy selected our Gaslamp B&B for their accommodations and here’s what they said about that!
“This place is AMAZING! Very clean and well done renovation. Easy check-in process and nice breakfast. Mark, Penny, Nico, Drake and the rest of the Niagara on the Lake Vacation Rentals team were terrific hosts. This is an entire unit within the house and you have your own living room, bathroom, and bedroom. I highly recommend this spot. If the calendar has any availability then book it! PS Also go for dinner at Epicurean and let them know you’re a guest of Marks for the royal treatment. ”
As we tick off items on the action plan, we’ll be sure to let you know!
