Why did you decide to become a host?

With nearly three decades managing key global client relationships in a job I adore and also having a passion for gardens, animals, and people, becoming an Airbnb host with our Decatur Alpaca Cottage was a natural extension of everything I already love! To host well takes commitment, attention to detail, creativity, and it combines the hospitality Georgia is known for with a good bit of business sense. As a young child, I also enjoyed playing with dolls and playing house. In many ways, being an Airbnb host is a lot like that on a larger scale; finding the perfect linens and bedding for our guest cottage, decorating with just the right touch of gracious comfort and eclectic charm, and finding ways to surprise and pamper our guests with little touches that show we care. In short, it is the perfect combination for a hobby business!

What do you love about being a host?

I love meeting our guests and hearing their stories; what brought them to the area, why they chose the Decatur Alpaca Cottage, and where they have seen alpacas before. Every guest has a story to tell and I thoroughly enjoy hearing what our guests share! I also take great pleasure in reading our guests’ entries in our guest book and finding the common themes; impeccably clean, incredibly comfortable, a haven, peaceful, close to the city, but just far enough away, you thought of everything, and my all-time favorite ‘We’ll be back!”
