Being an AirBNB host is a great way to earn money, make friends, and get to meet people from different countries.

Cristina Hoffman, who has listed her family’s Villa Busay in Jardin de Busay with AirBNB, said all her guests have so far been wonderful. Hoffman was among those who shared their experiences as hosts at an event organized by AirBNB and PLDT Home at her luxury villa.

Since the first thing guests ask about when looking up a place to stay is Internet connection, PLDT Home provides a connectivity package for AirBNB hosts that’s replete with exclusive and special offers.

Pat Jose, PLDT Home product specialist, said a reliable Internet connection is now a big consideration among travellers.

“This is one of the best deals PLDT Home has especially put together for AirBNB hosts,” she added.

AirBNB hosts in Cebu said they love their experience with the listing company and appreciate the connectivity bundle being offered by PLDT Home.

Villa Busay

Hoffman, who described her property in Cebu City as her dream home, said she decided to have the villa listed on AirBNB as they currently live in Hong Kong.

Her property in Busay is a two-story villa that is built on side of a cliff. It has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and an infinity pool with panoramic views of the metropolis.

The Hoffmans have been AirBNB hosts for over a year and the listing makes it easy for them to get villa guests.

AirBNB, which has around 1.5 million listings, has served some 60 million guests.
