Houst’s been getting into the festive spirit this year. So much so, we’ve decided not to leave it to Santa to deliver all the presents this time around.We’ve enlisted the help of some ‘house elves’, to bring a little extra festive cheer to a random selection of guests staying in Houst properties all over the world during the festive period.From this week, some lucky guests will arrive for their stay at some select Houst properties to find a present with their name on it waiting for them in the home!Using information from the Airbnb profiles of guests, each gift has been carefully selected to suit a guest and lovingly wrapped, before being delivered into host properties by one of the Houst House Elves before the guests arrive.
Presents already delivered include a DIY origami kit, travel guides, an A to Z of fashion styles, a book of architectural walks through London, a Miami Heat snapback cap, and a couple of bottles of champagne, with more to come over the next few days.We hope the gifts from our House Elves will help some guests to have unforgettable stays over the festive period, leaving host properties with happy memories (and 5-star reviews for their hosts!).At the end of the day, it’s the personal touches which make a guest’s stay truly special. As a host management company, we pride ourselves on making the lives of our hosts hassle-free, but we’ll never lose sight ofthe importance of looking after both our hosts and each one of their guestswith genuine care.Houst hosts can look forward to an update on the House Elves and their gift-giving adventures in January’s ‘Host Post’ newsletter.If you’re not yet a host with Houst, and you’d like to find out more about our service and what we can do for you, simply use the price calculator at the bottom of the page to get started by finding out how much you could earn from short-letting your home with us.
