Paul Hart, founder of Roamlocal, want to connect Airbnb hosts, guests and local businesses to create a win-win-win situation. Guests want to live like a local, which means frequenting the same places that locals do. Hosts want guests to be happy. Local businesses want customers.
Most hosts understand this and provide their guests with local recommendations. But as an Airbnb host, you can take it a step further. You could visit your favorite local businesses to let them know that you're an Airbnb host and that you're sending customers over.
Take your local pub or cafe for example. Good chance the owner would be willing to offer your Airbnb guests a free cup of coffee. That makes the experience for the guest more special. And who knows, you may get a complimentary glass of wine yourself from time to time.
