What is Daniele Liana Online School?
This is a series of rental courses that take you from any level to opening and scaling a short term rental business. The school currently has a total of three courses that provide comprehensive guidance on how to become an AirBnB super host.
Who is Danielle Liana?
Danielle has worked as a Senior Human Resource Generalist and an Accounts Payable Operations Manager for a global company for seven years. In 2018, she saw the chance to use her spare bedroom as an AirBnB and she took that chance. By February 2022, she was already co-hosting her third property.
In the same year, she registered her business; Danielle Liana, LLC, and hired her first employee since she was getting more business than she could handle. Following her success, she decided to start her online school; Short Term Rental Success With Danielle Liana in January 2023.
Danielle describes herself as an inspiring person who won’t stop at anything to help you get to the level of success you desire. She shared the story of how she conquered the Sister South, a hiking route with an elevation of 4,986 feet on her first attempt as a newbie hiker.
Her friend who went with her had injuries so she couldn’t complete the hike that day but years later, they went back to Sister South and she motivated her friend until they reached the summit. She does the same with her clients, she gently pushes them out of their comfort zone until they achieve their goals.
How Does Danielle Liana’s Program Work?
As mentioned earlier, Danielle has three courses. The first one is an introductory course on how to start your short rental. The topics include goal establishment, finding available space, marketing strategy, pricing, design, customer service, managing reviews, and cleaning of the property.

The last course delves deep into short term rental marketing strategies. The more residents you have staying over, the more money you make hence Danielle considers this an important part of the training process.
The course teaches you how to create a brand identity, identify your target audience, and marketing strategies like social media marketing.

Should You Invest in Danielle Liana’s Courses?
Danielle’s course outline seems to cover a lot of relevant topics in the short term rental space. Although there are lots of reviews on her website, there are not a lot of reviews on independent review websites but we are not surprised since the program was launched this year. The only review we found was on Google and it was positive. The reviewer mentioned that the resources were comprehensive and Danielle responded promptly to their questions and gave a response that cleared every doubt.
They also mentioned that the course prepared them for the launch of the Airbnb hosting which is exactly what they were looking for.
Since Danielle’s school actually delivers the resources it promises and the pricing is moderate, it is definitely worth the shot. If you are still skeptical about it, start with an individual course and see how it goes. Danielle has previews for the courses so you can take a look at them before making a decision.
