Meet Maria, a host on Airbnb from Khayelitsha Township

Maria is a host on Airbnb and lives in Khayelitsha Township in the Western Cape. Maria loves to know that when guests leave her home, they’ll have been completely immersed in the experience — from the food they get to eat, the home comforts they get to enjoy and the people they get to stay with.

Maria joined our pilot technology and hospitality training course recently to learn more about how to leverage the Airbnb platform to make a little extra income and be a great ambassador for her community.
