    Once you’ve selected the kind of space you’re hosting, you can help give guests an even better idea of what you’re offering—and whether it’s a good fit for them—by further defining it.

    The list of more specific property types you can choose from in this step is based on your answer to the previous question.

    For example, if you selected “House” in the previous step, you can stick with that here or specify a type of house, like “Bungalow” or “Cottage.” Or if you selected “Unique spaces,” you can choose from a wide range of property types, including “Tents,” “Treehouses,” and yes, even “Caves.”

    Some types of spaces can be defined in multiple ways. If you have a small house, for example, you may wonder whether you should define it in this step as a “Residential home,” “Cottage,” “Cabin,” “Tiny home,” “Bungalow,” or perhaps even “Farm stay.”

    For now, just select the option that you think best describes your place.

    There’s a perfect guest for every space, whether it’s a luxurious castle, a quirky treehouse, or a simple and affordable apartment. The key is setting guest expectations by creating a detailed, honest listing that showcases what makes your space appealing.

    And remember that you can always update this after you publish your listing.
