In this blog post, you’ll learn all about Mary, who offered up her flat for short-let services in Bath through us.
With a 2-bedroom flat in the luxury city of Bath, Mary was not aware of the pot of gold she was sitting on that had been left empty for months.
And as empty homes equal zero income, our Airbnb management company stepped in at just the right time to help Mary maximise her earnings and take advantage of the staycation boom and peak season occupancy rates.

Mary bought a flat in Bath for her daughter to live in whilst she was in university. But Mary’s daughter moved out a few years later after marrying her partner and relocating back to Bristol to be closer to family.
During this time, Mary had decided to let the property out to other students in the area as a private landlord through the agency Savills.
But COVID-19 was hard on the Bath property market; the once-wealthy property market had now been affected by a lack of demand for properties in the area due to a decline in student numbers and overseas visitors.
Wanting to keep the property in the family for a little bit longer, Mary did not want to put it on the market, especially during the current economic climate but felt she was out of options. That was until she found us.
The secret to success
We take most of the workload:
For example, Mary will keep an eye on the property and ensure that the bins are taken out at the right times and converse with neighbours to keep all operations running smooth.
Whereas, we will cover all the intensive tasks like ensuring the property is kept clean and is ready for the same day check-ins and outs. More than this, we will cover all guest communication, guest vetting and all the admin that comes with it.
- Answering inquiries 24/7
- Pricing and listing optimisation
- Hosting properties on several booking platforms
- Property upkeep, maintenance and cleaning
- Replenishing toiletries
“I could not do this without Hello Guest.”
How does Mary make her flat feel like home?
We know it’s the personal touches that make a home. And with Mary, we’re lucky as hosting partners to work with a host that go the extra mile to yield higher reviews, and in turn, higher occupancies.
The only thing you will need to do as a host is removed any personal items from your home, guests don’t like to feel like they are staying in a stranger’s home, so the space needs to feel unattached.
However, you can add personal touches with quirky home accessories, or even handwritten notes or chocolates on the pillow.
