Why Airbnb Doesn’t Scare Us

Airbnb has been downloaded tens of millions of times and undeniably revolutionized the hospitality industry. Even through this massive shift, we have stayed confident in the value we deliver to Fort Pierce and our customers. How can we stay calm during this revolutionary time? Let us break it down for you.

The average Airbnb rental price for Fort Pierce is $108 per night, but what do you get for your money? When you look at Airbnb’s Hosting Standards, you’ll find that there is very little guarantees. Airbnb expects hosts to update their availability frequently, communicate with their guests in a timely/supporting manner, commit to reservations, offer an easy check-in service, provide accurate rental information, and a clean environment. You will notice however, that Airbnb doesn’t guarantee many things. These are often just suggestions for hosts, instead of guidelines and rules. And if they go unreported, there are no repercussions.

Meanwhile, our average weekday rental costs $114 per night, across all room types. What do you get for the extra $6.00? The short answer: a lot. Let’s break down what comes standard with our rooms that does NOT come standard with an Airbnb rental:

  • Free continental breakfast and coffee
  • Private bathrooms
  • Guest Laundry rooms
  • Daily cleaning service
  • On-site heated pool and whirlpool
  • Free parking
  • On-site restaurant
  • Information on local activities and hotspots
  • Covered picnic areas with grills
  • Pet-friendly rooms
  • Smoke-free rooms

We could go on, but you can see that when compared to Airbnb, there is little competition in terms of value. Don’t forget that all of these are standard, so you get them whether or not you book a $69 room or a $159 room. Not to mention that if you are staying 15+ days, we give you discounts up to 35 percent! That’s why our customers have continued to stay with us despite the “savings” that Airbnb offers. There’s a big difference between staying at an ocean-side resort and staying in a stranger’s spare bedroom. So next time you think about booking a vacation in Fort Pierce, Florida, ask yourself how much saving $6.00 is actually worth? Better yet, give us a call at 772-468-3555 and we can tell you!
