Absolutely the BEST book I have ever read on investing and AirBnB behind the scenes knowledge. Culin's advise is bar none the must needed, go to advise to get started with AirBnB and to make a profit with your short term rental property. His book walks you though every step needed to not only set up and launch your STR but to also get to ready for guests. We would have made sooooo many mistakes that would have easily ruined our dreams of hosting and making money. His simple strategies have already allowed us to thrive in our 2 months on AirBnB with our first listing. We had 5 bookings in our first 24 hours and have not only paid all our expenses for each month but made PROFIT! (and we are not even in the High season yet!) If you read his book and go to his website, ensure you schedule a call with him and use his AirBnB host code for setting up your listing. He immediately messaged me after using his code to ask if I would like to set up a call to help me get started. To date I have had 2 amazing zoom calls that are invaluable in the knowledge he has shared. He looked over my listing and gave me personal advise to make my STR a success... not to mention he did it for FREE! I can not sing enough praises for him, his sweet wife, and their incredible business. IF you really want to succeed and make money as a Host, purchase and read his book (and/or listen on audible), then contact him for one on one mentorship to reach your goals!! -Heather M.
Practical, Actionable Advice for Short Term Rental Hosts!
I’m a new short term rental host, so I listened to this book on Audible. It was so practical and full of great ideas that I bought the paperback for reference! The information was so valuable I listened to the audiobook a second time. I just launched my Airbnb listing using these strategies and I’m already ahead financially compared to the same month last year when a rental management company was handling my condo, with potential for even more income. Don’t hesitate, buy this book! -Tracey B.

Just Buy This Book if You Are Interested in Airbnb's as a Business
I bought the kindle version of this book while I was staying at an Airbnb recently. I read the entire book on my tiny phone - it was THAT good. The tone is encouraging, realistic and they give specific checklists and guidelines to follow as you consider a property. It was so good that I also ordered the print book so that I could dog-ear the pages and highlight answers to my questions. I had always felt overwhelmed thinking about what it would be like to get a small property up and running as an Airbnb and these authors help make the undertaking much more approachable. I am excited to be implementing what this book offers as I get my first property set up following their blueprint. I'm so grateful for the generosity of these authors and highly recommend this resource if you are considering setting a little cabin up for short term rental income. -Melissa P.
Perfect Airbnb Book for the Careful (Anxious!) First Time Investor
I read this book cover to cover, immediately after buying my first property with the intent of doing short term rentals. I have zero background in business, real estate, or the short term rental market. And I tend to be cautious and squarely cynical when it comes to anything concerned with making money easily or quickly that sounds too good to be true. My husband and I followed all of the advice in the book - from pricing tips to decorating and outfitting each room. Within 24 hours of listing our cabin on Airbnb, we had 2 bookings. Two months in, and our rental income has covered 100% of our expenses each month so far - and this without WiFi and during the low season! We are getting phenomenal reviews, and all of our guests rave about how we have thought of everything. Culin and Danielle’s road map works! They know what they’re talking about, and this book really helped us feel safe in embarking on this new adventure. -Sara S.
Makes Wealth Building Fun and Attainable for Anyone!
Bottom line: The book, Host Coach, is a comprehensive guide to making dreams a reality! As a fellow real estate investor, I appreciated the candor and practical advice provided -- and yet, Culin and Danielle took it several steps further, pulling from their years of combined entrepreneurial experience. It makes me want to take a personal peek into their day-to-day operation. I bet it is a blast! If you are looking for a path forward for wealth creation, living a life of financial freedom, harnessing that which motivates you most, and doing so with gratitude, then this is the book for you! Everyone wonders how to invest and profit from properties and Airbnb, and this couple has graciously opened their doors to let us see and learn firsthand. Personally, I am even more appreciative of their approach, because it is clearly centered on living a purpose-filled life for God. I included one of my favorite pages from the book in the images included. Don't hesitate. I believe this is a morphed version of a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, but I landed on it yesterday, I love it, and it applies here: "What you are afraid to do is a clear indication of the next thing you need to do." I recommend you get this book. -Lindsey
