Feeling Like You Belong In a Place You’ve Never Been Before”

This week, Andy and Tyann speak to Amber Hurdle, public speaker, author and vacation rental industry influencer.

Amber talks about how a journey to Europe to connect with her Italian heritage left her feeling completely at home – even though she’d never even been to Italy before!

While Amber’s story starts with a deep longing to understand herself better through her ancestors, it unfolds into a conversation about ways vacation rental owners can tap into the history of their guests.

She suggests that by focusing on the heritage, background and history of a property or area, hosts can provide a unique stay that evokes a far more compelling guest experience – and makes them stand out of the vacation rental crowd.

And – Tyann again challenges you to find the special, historical or cultural experience that is local to you – and make sure your guests know about it!
