The commercial home concept refers to enterprises where the home or a home construct is used for the purpose of generating income through accommodation letting (i.e. homestays, bed and breakfasts, farmstays, self-catering accommodation, guesthouses, and small family hotels). In this work, Lynch (hospitality and tourism management, U. of Strathclyde, UK), McIntosh (hospitality and tourism management (U. of Waikato, New Zealand), and Tucker (tourism, U. of Otago, New Zealand) present 16 papers exploring different aspects of the commercial home through the disciplinary lenses of anthropology, economics, entrepreneurship, environmental studies, geography, hospitality, management, and marketing and tourism. Topics include forms and experiences of the commercial home, female commercial home entrepreneurs in the west of Ireland, interpreting public/private domains in farmstay enterprises, the servicescape of the commercial exurban home, setting and the rural tourism experiences of rural commercial homes, the discourse of home hosting, perspectives of temporality in the commercial home enterprise, managing behavior expectations of hosts and guests in small hotels in the UK, gendered space and the cave-homes of Göreme in Turkey, rural dimensions of the commercial home, economic and political action in the hospitable Muslim home in urban Malaysia, diversification of the commercial home in Australia, and sailing boats as commercial homes.
