Airbnb Friendly Buildings Program

Work with your HOA board to create home sharing policies that work for everyone.

About the program


Home sharing is an amenity that helps residents afford their optimal lifestyle. We want to make it as easy as possible for everyone, including HOA board members, to get the most out of home sharing on Airbnb. That's why we created the Airbnb Friendly Buildings Program, the world's most efficient and comprehensive property management tool for home sharing.

Through the program, an HOA can amend its CC&Rs to allow home sharing, and in exchange, receive a percentage of the revenue from hosting within its properties. The HOA also gains access to general information about the hosting activity taking place in its properties as well as greater control over the home sharing process.


It’s good news for everyone

Share the wealth

Each HOA decides how much of host earnings must be paid back into the community fund and used for social events, renovations, maintenance, or to subsidize HOA dues.

Gain transparency

HOA board members get access to a dashboard with high-level information about when residents are hosting, how many guests are staying with them, and how much money they earn.

Customize your program

Each board can set specific home sharing rules, like blackout dates and pet policies, that participating hosts and guests must accept before an Airbnb reservation is confirmed.
