David Krauss

Co-Founder & CEO, Rent Responsibly

David Krauss leads the passionate team behind the STR industry’s first community-building and education platform: Rent Responsibly. David discovered his hospitality and entrepreneurial genes by becoming an STR host in 2012. Before hanging up the keys in 2019, he was honored as one of the longest-tenured super hosts in the world. Early in his hosting journey, an incident with loud guests inspired him to co-found NoiseAware. Through this work, he has met thousands of passionate hosts and managers who wanted to build a local STR community but lacked the tools or support to do so.
