Developing and Validating a Scale of Perceived Host Territoriality

Abstract
Human territoriality is a highly relevant topic in P2P accommodation studies. This paper aims to develop and validate a scale of host territoriality from the perspective of P2P accommodation guests. Five studies with diverse data sources were conducted sequentially following best practices in the scale development procedure. The proposed scale of perceived host territoriality, which consisted of 18 items and four dimensions, namely accessibility, house rules, signs of ownership, and intrusion, demonstrated good reliability and validity. Findings of this paper can facilitate empirical examinations of host territoriality in P2P accommodation settings and shed light on the conceptualization of human territoriality in tourism and hospitality fields.
