Queen Mother tried that spot and it was a dismal failure. But alot has changed since then with more people living in the area.  

 

Whoever is trying to rent out "407" (same space) has been at that for over a year, and i have yet to see a single soul in there. 

 

Look how long it took Canoe to get their spot going.

 

I wouldn't touch it.

^^ Honestly did not know a commercial space even existed there.

 

When (if?) the harbour walkway goes past the Janion, the parking lot to the north connecting to the pier/Canoe Club, I could maybe see someone being successful there.

 

That, or something with some known appeal could draw people to an out of the way location.

I really liked that Queen Mother when it was there. It seemed like a cool space.

/\   The space in there is actually an improvement, so it's sad that it's not getting any use.

^ Cleaning fee of $70 seems pretty steep for such a small place.

There's a huge shortage of decent cleaners so they can really charge what they want. Or if the owner cleans it himself, a tidy extra profit. It doesn't take a vastly smaller amount of time to do a studio compared to a one bedroom--you still have to do the laundry, scrub the bathroom, take out garbage and recyclables et cetera.

Finding cleaners who are basically willing to work on call 7 days a week often on a tight turnaround schedule really isn't easy.  

I quickly learned that for a cleaner, a kitchen is a kitchen and a bathroom is a bathroom. Janion units are full of tempered glass and subway tile in the bathrooms, chrome and shiny white surfaces almost everywhere else. IMHO sparkling clean is job one in the accommodation business. :-)

Concierge, what is the experience with contract cleaners, are there many that do many Air BnB's?  It must be quite a juggle with arrival/departure times varying.

Most cleaning companies offer VR services but like anything else, it's about finding the right fit. Yes, coordinating same day turnovers definitely makes life interesting. But every day is different and that's one of the things I love about this job. :-)
