How a 25 Year Old Makes $860K with Airbnb

Interview with Isaac Francis

“Yo, what’s good, fam? I’m Isaac Francis, a 25-year-old entrepreneur killin’ it in the biz game. I’ve done a little bit of everything – accounting, bookkeeping, construction, and even art. But, let me tell you, building a “tiny house” hotel was the real game-changer for me.

I dropped $138k to buy 5 acres in Waco, Texas and partnered with my fam to build a short-term rental property made up of seven tiny houses. We grinded for 9 months, dropped $2.5 mil on the build, and opened the doors in January 2022. And, let me tell you, the results have been epic – we made $860k in bookings in our first year and now have 70k followers on Instagram.

Marketing played a big role in our success, and we’ve been killin’ it on social media, especially Instagram. Partnering with travel influencers and consistently posting high-quality content helped us grow our following organically.

Plus, we made more profit by avoiding booking-site fees through direct bookings.

But, it’s not just about the cash, fam. We wanted to create an experience that guests would never forget, and that’s exactly what we did. From the hammocks and hot tubs to the pond and paddleboarding, we made sure our guests felt lost in nature and part of a community.

And, it paid off – guests have been raving about their stays and coming back for more. We’ve even hosted corporate retreats, family reunions, and weddings. It’s been wild to be a part of people’s traditions and memories, and it’s only making our brand stronger for the future.

So, that’s my story, fam. If you’re looking to start a successful short-term rental biz, just remember – invest in the experience, use social media to your advantage, and go for the direct bookings. Trust me, the results will be worth it.”
