HOSTING CHECKLIST

Guide to becoming a host

Codi makes it safe and easy to host pre-screened professionals during the day. You’re in full control of your availability, house rules, and how you interact with guests.

Get started

 

____

Start your application


Tell us who you are

We'll ask you for some personal information so we can run a background check. This helps to ensure the Codi community is safe for all. 

Take great pictures

Members love looking at photos when making a decision on where to work. Take shots using natural light when possible.

____

Schedule your walkthrough

Once your background check is complete someone from our team will reach out to schedule a virtual walkthrough. You should be in your space for this 30-60 minute meeting. A member of our team will verify your space meets our standards, offer hosting advice, and help you set up your profile. 


____
Setting up your Codi

Help guests understand your expectations, rules, and offerings. 

Pick a name

Consider what makes your space special, such as a design element or a nearby place of interest. Your name should be unique, but not too long. 


Set your calendar

To make sure you only get guests when you want to, update your Codi calendar with your availability. You can set how much advance notice you need for bookings and how far in advance guests can book. 


Set your rules

Shoes off? Love music? You decide. 


Update your amenities 

Every Codi is unique. Make sure to share amenities that make your Codi special, like if you have a private parking spot or a friendly pet.
