Who is Evelyn Badia anyway?

I'm Evelyn Badia,

and I’ve been a successful Airbnb Superhost since 2010. I have hosted 100’s of guests in my home. I have done more than my share of housekeeping, laundry, and renovations, and I make enough income with my two listings to pay ALL of my New York City bills and enjoy a good life.

My mission is simple: Help ALL hosts grow their business and achieve financial success while enjoying “The Hosting Journey.”

I’ve had the honor of being one of the Host Educators at the 2015 Airbnb Open Conference in Paris and the 2016 Airbnb Open Conference in Los Angeles. I have also been a guest speaker at the Vacation Rental Success Summit in 2017. I have been teaching hosts how to successfully create a sustainable and more profitable Airbnb business since 2014.

I offer guidance and tangible assistance through my podcasts, webinars, and products like The House Manual Templates, a personalized House Manual that will have your guests raving. I also lead interactive challenges like the “Spring Clean Your Airbnb Challenge,” which has inspired hosts from around the globe to prep for the HIGH season.

Brian Chesky, Evelyn Badia


““Wow! Your templates for the HouseManual are so clean and professional looking, plus they cover all information a guest might need. Thank you so much for making these available, totally worth every penny! Love it!”. ”


“Thank you Evelyn Badia! Just received my first inquiry/request from Trip Advisor which I listed with during the Spring Challenge! $750 I would never have received with out the kick from the Challenge. Thank you!”
