Aloha! We’re Maylene and Charity
Our journey to Airbnb Superhosts status is not exciting, and perhaps that’s its greatest strength. Almost anyone can do it.
From Zero to Superhosts in No Time
We first learned about Airbnb from our landlord in 2012 and used it for the first time on a family trip to Hong Kong. Shortly after that trip we learned our condo would be sold and began searching for a home of our own. We found the perfect place in October 2012 and just three months later opened up the first bedroom in our North Portland craftsman home to Airbnb guests as an experiment to see how we liked hosting.
We didn’t just like it, we loved it and have since expanded Airbnb into other areas of our home, becoming Superhosts in Q2 2013, the first chance we were eligible. That same year we were committed to a month-long vacation and needed to find a way to replace ourselves. That’s when we realized hosts like ourselves needed a turnkeyed solution to keep their Airbnb spaces running while they focused on travel and their other passions.
We Are Ensourced
We started Ensourced with one client in August 2014 while formalizing processes and have expanded throughout the Portland metro area. We look forward to meeting other Superhosts and would-be hosts in the Airbnb community.
