Homestay Management Services in Malaysia. Comparison

Running a Homestay or Vacation Rental business is a full-time job. If you wanted to rent your property on AirBnB but do not have the time to manage the business, consider the list of Homestay Management Service and Solutions Providers we compiled below.

The rise of sharing economy spurs many business opportunities. Public transport players like taxi operators, in China, Malaysia and Indonesia, are disrupted by independent drivers who use ride-hailing apps like Didi, Grab and Go-jek.

In the context of Hospitality, the lodging services no longer offered solely by hotel operators. Through platforms like AirBnB and HomeAway, independent house owners and property investors have now jump on the bandwagon of renting their property on short-term basis to tourists and business travelers.

For property investors, renting their properties on short-term basis (a.k.a Homestay or Vacation Rental) might provide better returns compare to long-term rent BUT it often comes with additional works. Additional services like guest concierge, housekeeping, key handling, booking management and property maintenance are expected routines to generated good yields from the rentals.
