Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky’s life has come full circle as, after 15 years, the founder of the world’s most famous lodging service has listed a bedroom in his San Francisco home on the platform. It will be more like an experience than just a stay in a beautiful San Fran home. While the cherry on the cake is admittedly the $0 price tag, there are other aspects, like spending time with the American entrepreneur and having him bake you cookies or take a stroll in the neighborhood. “I live here, so I’ll be here,” Chesky said in a video posted to his Twitter account for the Airbnb 2022 Winter Release, which shows him taking photos of his home. “I did it 15 years ago, and I’m going to do it again,” he added.

Brian Chesky’s Airbnb listing includes a full-sized bathroom with a large shower, a spacious chef’s kitchen, and a sun-soaked living room with floor-to-ceiling windows. The home is also ideally located, “My home is near the Mission, Castro, and Noe Valley neighborhoods with plenty of great boutiques, restaurants, and coffee shops,” wrote Chesky in the listing. “You’ll be just a short walk from beautiful Dolores Park, Bi-Rite ice cream, and the world-famous Tartine bakery for fresh bread and pastries.”

This seems like the best way to encourage more people to become Airbnb hosts on the platform. In addition, there is a significant improvement in AirCover, the company’s protection plan for guests and hosts, which includes guest identity verification and technology to ensure that suspicious reservations for parties are blocked.

Hosts can expect new features like one-to-one guidance services for newbies. “Since the start of the pandemic, 60M people have visited Airbnb to learn more about becoming a host,” Chesky wrote on Twitter. “I hope what we launched today inspires more of them to get started.”
