Family run and family focused

Host and Stay was born from a love and passion for property, and a desire to lead the change in an age old industry.

We’re here to help more holiday home owners unlock the potential in their homes. With new methods for new times. With better guest experiences through technology and lightning fast response rates. All resulting in more revenue for our holiday home owners, and with less hassle due to our completely hands free service.

Our vision

As investors ourselves, we’re here to change the game. To reset the standard. To help property owners maximise their income, maximise their returns, and reduce their fees and their hassle. We’re on a mission to make the UK one of the most popular, guest centric holiday destinations in the world – but not at the expense of holiday home owners paying high management fees and seeing very little, if any return on their investments.
