Simon Lehmann's new year resolutions for STR hosts



We kicked off 2024 in style by welcoming industry guru Simon Lehmann back to the #HCHPodcast.


Simon is a highly regarded short-term rentals expert and consultant. As well as being the CEO and Co-Founder of AJL Atelier, Simon is a renowned keynote speaker and angel investor.


During the episode, he shared the five new year resolutions that every STR host and property manager should be making. He also gave his predictions for the year ahead and shared his main takeaways from the recent conference season.


Simon's favourite brand shout-out went to Moving Mountains, while his individual shout-out went to Antonio Bortolotti from Vacation Rental World Summit. Simon also picked his favourite between Airbnb and Booking.com (it was a very fast response!).


Below are Simon's five new year resolutions. Make sure you tune in to hear his reasons.


Resolution No. 1: Prioritise sustainability.

Resolution No. 2: Financial hygiene.

Resolution No. 3: Work on your pricing strategy.

Resolution No. 4: Enhance the guest experience and take advantage of the fact remote working is here to stay.

Resolution No. 5: Market and promote effectively – because we are all at the mercy of the online travel agencies.


You can listen to the episode on our website, wherever you get your podcasts, or watch on YouTube.
