Introduce Yourself: January edition

Welcome to the Partner Forum!

Posting in a new community can be pretty daunting, so to kick things off for the newcomers, we’d love to know:

  1. Where you’re from?
  2. What’s your property like?
  3. How long have you been in the business?

Bonus round! If you could go back in time, where would you go?

Even if you just say hi, we’d love to hear from you. Feel free to include links to your property listing or photos - though keep in mind photos can only be uploaded through the desktop version of this site.

If you are new to the forum, check out this article about how things work over here, including our Community Guidelines and how to update your profile name and photo.

Happy posting :)

Hi to everybody , my name is Shiloh and my guest Lodge is situated on the Southern most tip of Africa where all the Southern Right whales come to give birth every Sept.I am based in the seaside hamlet of Hermanus and run two lodges Squirrels Leap and Matshana Lodge. Between the two is a small tribal Arts museum open to guests . We are a stones throw from a white sandy beach with beautiful walks along the coastline. (From Cape Town airport about 1 hr) I also travel to Europe frequently and love networking with other hosts from various countries . My greatest joy is sharing the unique wild life heritage and biosphere individualism of this area, notwithstanding a good glass of Merlot with a international traveler. We have a wine valley called Heaven and Earth and here you can sit for hrs watching the golden African sunsets while nibbling on tasty seafood snacks.Hosting for Booking.com is the best job in the world where the global village becomes one and their are no more borders , we are just one big family .

HI - I have been with booking.com for over three months now and all is going pretty damn good. I started with Air B'n'B in July 2018 but booking started to dry up after two good months - so went with the suggestion of a Dutch guest to try Booking.com and never looked back since. I have a Victorian semi-detached 4 bed B'n'B within walking distance of the great city of Liverpool, so I am blessed with guests all year round - so it would appear - hardly any rooms free every weekend till June !

Before this I went round the world and other places with the Royal Navy, then went into Probation did this for 15 years, managed African bands and set up as a therapist. I have to say this is perhaps the best job I have had - and starting to become the best well paid to boot. I do all the work myself at the moment - decorated the whole house with Beatles LP's - all originals (most older than me) and art from local artists - which is a bit querky and although it has not earnt me any money yet it looks great and guests love it.

My next venture is to rent out high end mountain bikes to guests - need to make some indestructable chains and locks (this is Liverpool after all !) - which I will do this month after I get paid. I have already got 6 bikes to rent (got them all second hand for £220 !) just need a bit of work to get them all serviced and good to go. I am surprised more people are not thinking of doing the same on 'here' - best way to see any place / country and so good for you / environment. I will try and keep people posted as to how this goes - any ideas or advice most welcome .

Cheers Peace and LOve - from the friendliest city in the world !!!

Sealed with a kiss!!! My favorite!!! I used to hear that song when I was a teenager living in Canada.
Thanks David for sharing this lovely song. I love Montenegro. Hope I can visit it some day.
Happy day...
