Pass the Keys, the UK's leading short let property management service, is now expanding into one of the UK’s top staycation destinations Wells, Somerset and into the up and coming town of Bridgwater.
Since Pass the Keys was founded in 2015, the company has worked with hundreds of property owners across the UK through sites such as Airbnb and Booking.com to host thousands of international and domestic guests. As short-term holiday letting is becoming increasingly popular for property owners all over the UK, and especially in Wells and Bridgwater thanks to the high financial rewards, there is a need for professional support and services to help manage this rising demand. Pass the Keys is proud to announce that we have teamed up with local entrepreneur Anthony to provide professional support and expertise in Somerset.
Pass the Keys is a new kind of property management company and a full-service operation, created specifically to give homeowners the ability to maximise their short-term rental income without any hassle. In a nutshell, we list and manage your property on leading online booking sites like Airbnb and Booking.com, so you don't have to.
We interviewed the Director of Pass the Keys Wells to find out why he is so passionate about this area of Somerset and its growing short let industry.
Q: Hi Anthony, can you tell us a bit about yourselves and your experience prior to coming on-board with Pass the Keys?
Hello Folks, great to e-meet you here and hope you are all well and safe. Pass the Keys is my first business venture, but I have been in the hospitality accommodation sector for more than two decades. I am excited to combine my experience with the expertise of the UK’s leading holiday let property management service, so you can rest assured that your property is in safe hands.
Q: Why did you decide to start your business in Wells and Bridgwater?
I know both areas extremely well; Wells and Bridgwater both have a lot to offer to leisure and business visitors alike. The popularity of “staycations” and “workations” have meant that the short let industry has skyrocketed. The growth in Airbnb style property operation is not going anywhere soon! This is a chance for property owners in Wells and Bridgwater who are ready to capitalise on this booming industry and increase their income through flexible short letting.
Q: Why do people need a short-letting company in Wells and Bridgwater like Pass the Keys?
There aren’t any agents or short let management companies taking on the whole of the short-let market or working as totally dedicated Airbnb agents or Airbnb style management specialists in Wells and Bridgwater. And they certainly don’t have the tech to support their property management like Pass the Keys does.
Pass the Keys provide an end-to-end service, utilising dynamic pricing and bespoke technology such as the PTK Connect app, so that you can sit back and watch in real time as your property achieves its optimum potential. Here at Pass the Keys, we put the host first and use a comprehensive guest vetting system and provide hosts with additional insurance for extra peace of mind!
Pass the Keys has also achieved the prestigious Professional Airbnb Co-Host Status, one of only three companies in the whole of the UK to achieve this status, further demonstrating their position as a leader in the field.
Q: What advice would you give to property owners wanting to host on Airbnb?
If you will not be cleaning the property yourself, make sure you have reliable Airbnb cleaners on standby. Holiday let management companies like Pass the Keys can manage the cleaning and laundry service for you.
Aside from taking care of toiletries, cleaning, and laundry, they also offer guest screening, 24/7 check-in and guest support, and other services for a completely hassle-free way of hosting.
