Join us in The STR Sisterhood’s latest podcast episode where we crack the code on why DIY Airbnb cleaning is a recipe for disaster (it’s more than just sore muscles, trust us!).

Assaf Karmon, Turno’s co-founder, spills the tea on:

  • Turno’s magic matchmaking: Get connected with local, vetted cleaners who rock the sparkle socks. No more sketchy reviews or crossed fingers!

  • From dream to reality: Hear Turno’s inspiring journey from a crazy idea to empowering thousands of Airbnb hosts.

Ready to ditch the mop and embrace cleaning bliss? Assaf walks you through the easy-peasy signup process so you can wave goodbye to cleaning woes and hello to happy guests (and a much happier you!).
