Description
Do you want to have a successful guesthouse in a developing country? This is the guide for you! Full of practical, useful tips from the perspective of a very well traveled writer who has stayed at more than 300 guesthouses. This quick guide covers everything from what important features you shouldn't forget inside your property to suggestions on how to make extra income. It's organized into clear sections and full of interesting stories that give examples of how (and how not to!) successfully run a guesthouse. While many books tend to focus on running a bed and breakfast or a small hotel in developed countries, like the UK or the USA, this quick guide is focused on developing countries like Nepal, Solomon Islands, Indonesia, Peru, Bolivia, Uganda and Zambia. In only 25 pages you’ll find more practical advice than in hundreds of pages published by other writers. What you will learn with this eBook? How to choose the location for your guesthouse While this step might seem simple enough, having a guesthouse located in a hard-to-reach area might not be a good idea. Have you considered the security implications for your guests? How to advertise your place Just having a big sign saying "We are open for business" is not enough in this day and age: there are many venues for advertising your business. Ideas for the interior of the guesthouse Sometimes it's the little things that count - do your guests have somewhere to put their clothing in a common shower area? Tons of ideas to make your guesthouse more comfortable! What services to offer Offering a bed for weary travelers is just one of the services you could offer. Depending on the location, you might be able to offer up to 5 extra services that will increase your income. Ideas for the design of the guesthouse Have you ever thought of building a tree-house for your guests? How about having hammocks in your garden? Many more ideas that would make your place memorable. City vs. rural vs. beach vs. mountain guesthouses There are major differences between these types of guesthouses and each of them have their own short section.
