Abstract

This paper aims to report on a study which investigates the host - home relationship within the commercial home, identifying typologies of commercial home hosts. Previous studies have identified types of small business owners and home owners and here more specifically to the hospitality context and host category is explored. The relationship with the host is explored using interviews, observations and discussions of relationship facilitated with photographs of the property. Findings identify five types of commercial home hosts; the economic host, the eco-socio host, the socio-eco host, the social host and the ego host. The typologies are explained and discussed.
