Does this sound familiar?

I was surprised when I first learned that you didn't need to own property to host on short-term rental (STR) platforms like BnB.

As soon as I learned this, I started calling apartments to see who would let me rent an apartment, furnish it, and start hosting to make money.

The struggle was real.

I was calling apartment after apartment just for them to tell me they weren't interested.

If they did accept this type of lease, then they would finish the call letting me know that they have to background check every guest.

And each call became more and more discouraging.

I started to give up with the idea of hosting because people on the internet made it seem easy. But then, I finally got my first break.

And now, I am a full-time host that owns and rents my bnbs.



For the Host Academy was created by Kierra of @coachforthehost on Instagram. She knew there was a gap between new hosts entering the short-term rental market and guests of short-term rental platforms. And that's how it was born.

Hi! My name is Kierra and I am your short-term rental coach. I've been hosting for over 3 years.

I am a real estate investor with a focus on buy-and-hold investment strategies. I graduated from the University of Houston with my BBA in Accounting. I worked for two big-4 accounting firms but quickly realized AirBnB was my strong suit. My goal is to help students of the For the Host Academy discover the world of STRs so you can have the knowledge readily available.

Walked around after a tour of the Vistor Experience. Not really much to see, but I was fascinated with the landscaping and plants. Not too many tech parks have watermelons growing. Lots of pollinators were being visited by their flying friend. Impressive that a company of this size cares enough to do such a good job!
If you're not an employee, you can't see any of the interesting stuff. So it's just a bunch of office buildings in a boring corner of a not very interesting town. If you're interested in the Computer History Museum nearby, by all means do a drive-by while you're in the area. But don't go there just to see the GooglePlex, it really isn't worth the time it would take to get there.
Really enjoyed the amazing Googleplex for a recent conference! The surroundings are delightful to visit or ride a GBike around on the winding paths. The new building is open to the public now!
So disapointed! Everywhere in the internet is marked that there is a Google Store (similar to Apple) but no, here is absolutely nothing for public - even the water in the public toilet did not work. My family just told me to sell my android phone ... sad all the way from Switzerland, just to see the (pretty nice) Googleplex from the outside
Horrible treatment. Person at googleplex out of the blue told me: HEY MA’AM - YOU CANNOT GO INTO ANY BUILDING. Then I asked, can I use the bikes to explore around? He said, NO! So I asked, so just walk? He said, NO! JUST WALK OUTSIDE. HAVE A NICE DAY. Umm what?.. I felt attacked. He was so rude. No idea why. There was a shop but security told me that it was not open to the public. Waste of time. Not much to see. Just a couple of statues and some geese eating grass.
