WHAT IS HOSTFULLY?

Hostfully is an online platform that lets you create personalized, local guidebooks for your guests. Celebrate everything you love about your neighborhood. Share a customizable guide with each guest to make their trip more meaningful and memorable.

WHY IS HOSTFULLY A DIFFERENT KIND OF GUIDEBOOK?

In addition to essential information like house rules, amenities and laundry, Hostfully guidebooks include personal, local, and customized content.

Hosts can quickly and easily create a beautiful guide to share all the things they love about the area with their guests—from a favorite corner cafe or bar, to a must-see show, or a hidden vista only you know about.

Hostfully guidebooks will be available both online and in print, so guests can access content the way they prefer, creating unique experiences and an amazing stay.

WHO ARE WE?

We are a diverse group of home sharing hosts and world travelers. We understand the unique influence a great host has with their guests.

While our team members have worked for companies like Apple and Google, it's our experiences as couchsurfers, guests and hosts, that sets us apart. We know first-hand how personal connections with locals make any experience exceptional, and we want to make that possible for everyone.

WHAT WILL WE DO WITH THE FUNDS?

With your support, we're creating a Hostfully community of enthusiastic travelers, hosts and guests who will be instrumental in helping us create a product you'll be excited to use and proud to share.

With funds from our crowdfunding campaign we will—

  • Create a Founder's Circle limited to the first 200 funders, who will get early access to test and provide direct feedback on our product
  • Grow the Hostfully brand to reach more travelers, hosts and guests

I fell in love with travel when I was only 12. I met my wife while living in Germany and named my daughter after a Brazilian racecar driver. I'm a big Apple fan—having worked there for 7 years.

I live in Australia and bring my love and passion for travel to Hostfully. My husband and I both work virtually so we can travel the world with our two daughters as often as possible.
