The study of well-being is a significant emerging frontier in tourism and hospitality research. Nonetheless, research efforts to date provide limited examination of the stressors associated with running peer-to-peer (P2P) accommodation, particularly for those providers operating in regional Australia. Using the PERMA model as a wellbeing framework, this exploratory study focuses on wellbeing in relation to coping with stressors emerging from running a P2P accommodation. These stressors combined with round-the-clock technological access and non-work demands can create devastating impacts on the well-being of P2P accommodation providers. This study also identifies potential support mechanisms that could be employed to deal with these stressors.
