To become a Harvest Inn host, there are a few basic requirements we’ll need you to tick off. This ensures we’re able to offer the best possible experience for your guests when they come to stay.
Learn more about requirements in the FAQs below.
● Public liability Insurance
● Safe access & parking for guest vehicles
● Goods or services to offer your guests
Yes! One of our guiding principles is around creating a community that supports local businesses – and that includes our hosts – by making a purchase of available goods and services during member stays.
Harvest Inn is also launching a guest and host rating system, which enables you to rate your guest. This rating will then become important to our guests as other hosts use this to determine if they will accept a guests’ request to stay.
The place where guests will park their vehicles for overnight accommodation needs to be reasonably flat, level and free from obvious hazards and obstructions (including potholes, uncovered drainage or irrigation lines or trenches, collapsed trees and branches, stumps, livestock grids and exposed electrical cabling); and to the best of your knowledge, able to be safely accessed by Guest vehicles (including two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive motor vehicles, campervans, recreational vehicles, caravans, trailer campers etc).
All hosts are required to have $20 million in public liability insurance and in some instances the host will need to contact their insurance broker to note on their policy a “change in activity”. This extension will allow you to have a guest van or two overnight and in most circumstances this minor alteration will result in no additional costs to your business. To assist the conversation with the broker, Harvest Inn has prepared a document you can provide. Download here.
No, Harvest Inn is an overnight stay in a self contained vehicle. Our Code of Conduct stipulates that guests are not to request an additional night. This avoids hosts having to constantly deal with additional requests and guests overstaying welcome. Hosts are more than welcome to extend an invitation to stay longer, however that is their choice, as they might to a family friend.
It is important to remember that guests are at your property at your invitation. Generally any disagreements that can not be reasonably resolved, would result in the property owner exercising their right to ask them to leave. Where a guest’s conduct is unacceptable, Harvest Inn has the right, as set out in our guest Terms of Service, to terminate membership.
To become a host, we will need to set up a host profile which requires signing up. However, it is important to note that it does not cost hosts anything to have a listing designed, built and promoted on the Harvest Inn Platform. Hosts are in complete control on who they accept to stay at their property and when. E.G you may elect to only have one guest vehicle every second Wednesday. Whatever your preferences, you retain control.
No. All members of the platform have self-contained vans that must carry and capture all grey and black water, as well as onboard power and cooking facilities to participate.
No, you retain control on when you would like guests without having to offer a reason.
Yes! The hosts listing states vehicle size and limitations. Usually these will be determined by the area made available for parking, along with property access. However, there may be reason beyond these parameters for you electing to limit vehicle size. These vehicle limitations will be noted on your listing and guests with registered vehicles outside of these parameters will be unable to request a stay.
