    Send a booking request

    Use our secure messaging system to reach out to Hosts. Send them a personalized note telling them about yourself and why you are interested in homesharing with them. When you start messaging, we hold a one-time Guest match fee of $95 to $195 based on the length of your expected stay. If you do not confirm a homeshare, the fee will be immediately released back to your card.

    Review your booking requests

    We require all Hosts and Guests to complete our multi-tiered screening process, which includes email and identity verification by industry leader Onfido and two reference checks. Only screened Guests can reach out, and you'll need to finish your verification before you can respond to them.

Message

Upfront communication is key to a successful homeshare. Start by messaging through our secure platform, then connect over the phone or meet in person to make sure you've found the right fit. Discuss the Host's homesharing agreement to clarify the rules and expectations on both sides.

Confirm the booking

When both Host and Guest are ready to move forward, Nesterly makes it easy to confirm the terms of the homeshare and schedule automatic rent payments. Our one-time Host match fee of $95-$195 is simply deducted from the first month's rent payment.

Nesterly makes sending and receiving rent payments a breeze with our secure payment system. Charges occur instantaneously, and generally take 5-7 business days to be deposited into the Host’s account. Nesterly charges just 2% of monthly rent for ongoing use of the Nesterly platform, including automated rent payments, on-going support and our 24-hour service team.
