How Host & Stay will take the stress out of your property management

Monday 22nd November, 2021 by hostandstay

Do you have a holiday home rental that isn’t achieving the occupancy rate that you expected? Perhaps it isn’t generating the revenue you need to make it viable, or you simply don’t know where to start marketing it. 

That’s where we come in!

Back in July 2019, there were only 8,100 monthly searches for ‘staycation’. A year later in July 2020, the figure was over six times more at 49,500, with figures in June 2021 reaching over 40,000 after a lull in activity during the Winter months. 

As holiday homeowners ourselves we understand what’s important for both owners and guests, and we’re well-placed to minimise the stress for you. 

Your property will be set up and managed by our dedicated team, from copywriting and professional editorial photography, to a five star housekeeping service. We do everything we can to make the journey for you and the holiday maker as stress-free as possible.

The property visit

First things first, we need to see your property! 

One of our expert team will come to meet you, so you can show us around and tell us a more about what you’re looking to achieve. It’s also a chance to see if we’re the right fit for each other – after all, we will be helping you to look after one of your most valuable assets.

Performance forecast

Within 72 hours of our visit, you will receive a performance forecast which will provide you with our expected revenue, occupancy and running costs over the next four years, so you don’t have to work that out.

Optimising your pricing will be on a per night, per stay basis, to help encourage sales and keep advertised costs down.

Property details

When it comes to property details, we like to be thorough, so we have one or two checklists for you to complete at this point. 

We don’t have lengthy contracts, but we do ask for a signature to make things official.

Cleaning and laundry service

Our in-house cleaning and laundry team will have a deep clean of your property and help to maintain the highest quality standards for the guests, great news – you don’t have to do it yourself!


Book your property photoshoot

We believe our property photography is what sets us apart from the masses of other holiday home listings. Once you’re booked in we can have your photos edited and ready for use within 72 hours.

Create a property listing

With the property details you supply, the information from our property visit, and the stunning professional images – we will create a property listing that will have the reader thinking they are already there.

Our copywriter will ensure your property’s key features are shown off in detail to attract sales.

Go live!

Now for the exciting part. We push your property listing live on over 60 global platforms including our own Host & Stay website, Booking.com, Airbnb, TripAdvisor, HomeAway, Expedia and more.

Manage performance and pricing

We always strive for better performance and with our weekly property performance meetings and unique pricing tool, you can rest assured that your property is being continually optimised for the very best performance, for you and the customers.
