As the Host from the Qantas Airbnb campaign, Vanessa knows the main reason people consider becoming an Airbnb host

They want more money for holidays, mortgage or rental payments


  • They think it is a hassle to de-clutter and prepare
  • They are concerned about whether their place is Airbnb ready
  • They don't understand how profitable the short-term rental market is
  • They are concerned about letting strangers into their home
  • They wonder why some listings on Airbnb are killing it and they don't see how they can get bookings.

The BnB School has the answers. Our 3-hour BnB Accelerator will teach you everything you need to know to make money from your home on Airbnb. All your questions answered by experts, in one place. This is exceptional value.

The genius of Airbnb is that anyone can make money from their home without additional investment

BnB Accelerator

We offer a 3-hour workshop to teach rentalpreneurs how to make money from their home without additional investment

  • Most people don’t realize the money making potential that their property holds.
  • They don’t realize that on those key dates they are away on holidays, there is often only 4% of properties available on Airbnb and there is a massive opportunity.
  • They think it will be a hassle having to clear the clutter – it’s too much work.

" The genius of Airbnb is that it works on two levels. Anyone can make money from their home without additional investment but more importantly, it makes accommodation more accessible for travelers by opening up locations outside of the hotel network at a price for any type of budget "

Joanne Lia, Business Owner and Mum hosting in Bondi

I always thought Airbnb was for other people. I thought clearing away the clutter and storing my valuables safely wasn’t worth it. In 3-hours Vanessa’s BnB School changed my perspective. I now have the tools, the confidence and the knowledge of what my listing is truly worth. And my family is looking forward to our five-star holiday this summer with the extra cash we are making.

Ian Salgado, IT Professional hosting in Waverton

I’ve been on Airbnb for about six months and thought I was doing all the right things, but I wasn’t getting the bookings I needed. Vanessa showed me some small changes I could make to my listing and bingo! I’m now getting great results. I’ve been able to increase my nightly booking rate as well as get more nights booked a week. I’m now just one review away from becoming a Super Host and really excited about the money coming in over the holidays.

Leesa Melchert, Manager and Mum hosting in Mosman

The insights that Vanessa and her team taught me have improved my results on Airbnb within the first week! After getting mediocre results, I simply did not have the time to become a ‘hack’ and read everything online from people who weren’t experts. She presented all the information from how to price my place to what I can claim for on tax, and helped me understand the importance of the guest experience. If you are considering Airbnb for the holidays, don’t delay. This is a must attend event. You will love it!
