Being a gracious host involves more than just changing your sheets and calling it a day — even if your guests are continent-hopping strangers. Any Airbnb host worth their weight in thumbs-up emojis will tell you that coordinating your guest's arrival is one thing, but doing your part to help them have the best vacation ever is a whole different ball game.

Obviously, the burden of their travel fun doesn't fall entirely on your shoulders. (Hopefully, their vacation plans don't hinge on how Instagrammable your place looked online.) But, it's important to make a good first impression. Whether Airbnb is your side hustle, or you're about to welcome your first guest — hell, even if you're just letting a friend stay the night — we've rounded up 10 home buys that are guaranteed to set the host bar high.
