What information will I need to provide when signing up?

Your homestay profile should show off yourself and your home. Make sure it looks its best so that you’ll capture the interest of potential guests.

Start with a snappy title for your homestay. Something to grab attention on the listings page. Then write a descriptive introduction and upload some great photos. You should have no problem encouraging guests to read your full profile and book a stay in your home!

You’ll need to provide a description about yourself and your home. This should include your interests and hobbies, the number of bedrooms you have available to book, details on other occupants in your home, directions to your home, photos, house rules and other information as required. Guests love to read about a host’s interests and learn a little about the area they’ll be staying in and what to expect.

Before going live, you'll also need to set up your bedroom rates and make sure your availability calendar is up-to-date.

Hosts connected with a Local Partner are required to upload this documentation or show it to the Local Partner during the homestay visit.

Hosts who are not connected to a Local Partner are not obliged to provide documentation but are encouraged to upload documentation when completing their profile.

A verified profile gives interested guests peace of mind and security when choosing to book and stay at your homestay so we encourage you to upload verification documentation when completing your profile. 

We currently store documents in Amazon S3. This storage complies with the safe harbour regulations. All documents are encrypted, and only accessible with private tokens dynamically generated.
