Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs for hosts

How much is it?

A one off setup fee is charged to cover things like photography, listing copy, property guide collation and printing etc. Our ongoing management fee is charged at a percentage (15-18%) of the guest rent, which means that we only get paid when you do! This incentive based commission means that we work extra hard to get you higher yielding and a higher number of bookings so we all benefit. Cleaning fees are charged to the guest to ensure the guests are not paying more than they need to for longer bookings if it were included and owners are not out of pocket.

What’s included in your fee?

Our fees includes a huge range of services, many of which you can find here. We also include the rental and laundry of hotel quality linen using a professional laundry service. You don’t have to worry about expensive upfront costs of purchasing additional linen as it’s all taken care of.
