Put your vacation rental on autopilot with a Burner line tailored for Airbnb hosts
The Benefits of Burner for Airbnb Hosts
(and other vacation rental marketplaces)
Reduce inbox noise
First time hosts on Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, and other vacation rental marketplaces are often surprised at the sheer amount of communication involved in renting a place out. The shorter and more frequent the stays, the more messages and calls you'll have to take.
Separate your rentals
Fortunately, Burner provides a simple solution to automate much of the communication involved in renting a property, in addition to providing you with a new phone number and a way to protect your personal identity in the process.
Spend less time managing
This page will walk you through our recommended setup for Airbnb hosts, plus show you a tool we created to automate responses to common questions from your guests.
Our Recommended Setup for Airbnb Hosts
CREATE NEW BURNERS
Create a new Burner line for each rental property, and name the lines after your properties so that you can identify them.
CONFIGURE YOUR BURNERS
Only get calls or texts when you want to. For each line, you can turn off the ringer, record a voicemail and much more.
SET UP HOSTBOT
Set up Hostbot and fill out the guest answers for each property—we've identified 16 common guest questions, all you need to do is write responses.
Create New Burners
Sign Up for Burner
If you don't already have a Burner account, you can choose your number by clicking this button and searching your preferred area code on the next page.
CREATE A SAVED MESSAGE
Add the number to a saved message in Airbnb for when you're communicating with guests.
Configure Your Burners
Turn off rings
You can turn rings off in the Settings of each Burner to get some peace and quiet (and let Hostbot respond for you).
RECORD YOUR OWN VOICEMAIL
Record your own customized voicemail for each Burner with a greeting specifically for guests at that property.
Sync to Google Drive, Dropbox, and Slack
Set Up Hostbot
STEP 1: CONFIGURE HOSTBOT WITH ANSWERS
To set up Hostbot, go to hostbot.burnerapp.com, and fill out answers for each common question. Your answers should correspond to the property for which you are using this line.
Step 2: Give out the number
Give out that phone number to guests. The bot will interpret the text message and respond for you. If it doesn't know the answer, it won't reply and you can reply when you get the message.
