Who can use Be My Hostess?
Our service is designed for anyone – home owners and investors who:
- Want to maximise the return on their property
- Don’t want to or are unable to lease to long term tenants
- Want the flexibility of being able to use the property themselves when required (e.g. somewhere for visiting friends and family to stay)
- Want to make money renting out their own home while they are away
- Are an existing Airbnb or short term host
- Want to deal with Hawke’s Bays newest, professional and knowledgeable short term property manager
What is the difference between Be My Hostess and a standard property manager?
At Be My Hostess, we manage your property in a very different way to how a standard property manager and longer term rental is managed. Properties rented out on Airbnb and for short term rely on positive reviews for future bookings, meaning they need to be well appointed, furnished and maintained to help ensure positive feedback and reviews from guests. Because we are at your property checking guests in and out, it means we are regularly inspecting it to ensure the property is always in the best presentable condition. Regular inspections mean we attend to issues before they become problems.
Can my property be listed on multiple short term rental sites, as well as Airbnb?
Yes, it can. And we will advise you what the best options are for your property, and do that for you.
Can you help me get my place ready for Airbnb?
Absolutely, we can advise on any aspect of preparing your property ready for Airbnb and short term guests, or we can organise it for you.
Am I covered if something happens to my property?
If you list through Airbnb they offer a host guarantee of up to $1.3 million NZD. However we do recommend our clients have full insurance on their properties.
Can you help me if I am already an AirBnB host?
Although being an Airbnb host can be a rewarding experience, it is time consuming and a tie. It means you may have to block out dates or rely on friends and family to help you out if you want or need to get away for a few days. So if you are already a host, but need a hand occasionally or regularly, we can help!
What are your fees?
Because of the flexibility of our service, we do not have one standard fee. Get in touch to discuss your needs. We would love to help you.
