If you’ve ever used an online merchant similar to Amazon or services like Yelp and TravelAdvisor, you’re probably pretty familiar with checking the customer ratings before making your purchases. In an online marketplace where your customers can’t physically touch or see your product in person, your customer’s ratings can make or break you. Let’s face it, no one wants to spend their hard-earned cash on a bad product or inferior service, and one easy way to ease that risk as a consumer is by viewing previous customer ratings. Airbnb, Inc. offers a marketplace for arranging and offering lodging to guests and provides a way for homeowners to earn an income playing the perfect host right from their home. Similar to a hotel, potential guests are looking for a clean space and great amenities, but most of all, a comfortable bed! So how do you choose the best option for your Corpus Christi Airbnb rooms that will leave your guests happily snoozing under the sheets?
It’s widely recommended to choose a mattress with medium firmness. Find a mattress that is somewhere between 5 and 7 on the universal firmness scale so that it will be “too soft” or “too firm” for the fewest guests. If you’ll be using a soft mattress topper, find a mattress in the 7-8 range for more support. For the majority of Airbnbs where a guest is staying 7 nights at most, a well made medium firmness memory foam mattress will get you great reviews while keeping money in your pocket.
Pick something that fits with your listing. If you’re charging $400 a night for your listing on Ocean Drive, a blow-up airbed is not going to cut it. If you’re positioned as a luxury or premium listing, you’ll need something more luxurious to fit your positioning. Invest 5-7 nights of bookings into your mattress if you’re an affordable listing, 2-4 nights of bookings for premium listings. For premium listings, consider adding an adjustable bed base to really take your guest’s experience to the next level.
