4 - Sarah Andrews, arguably Australia's most successful Airbnb host, now has the world firmly in her sights

Posted December 31, 2019


Sailor, stylist and entrepreneur, Sarah Andrews is the owner of Captain’s Rest, a once desperately run-down but now fairytale-like, renovated shack located in the north-western Tasmanian town of Strahan.

After the breakdown of her marriage and a couple of serious health crises, Sarah took a gamble and purchased the shack on a whim – sight unseen – in the mid 2010’s.

Although originally intended purely as a sanctuary for her, it has since become one of Australia’s most in-demand short-term rental properties, commanding a nightly rate and occupancy levels most hosts can only ever dream of.

These days, Sarah runs ‘The Hosting Masterclass’ both online and in-person around Australia and has exciting plans to take the class to a global audience in 2020.
