Let Out Your Airbnb Without Any Fuss
How We As Airbnb Agents Optimise The Airbnb Hosting Experience?
First, we create trust.
Trust creates momentum. And momentum becomes occupancy. As occupancy increases the number of reviews increases.
As this increased demand goes up. What happens when demand exceeds supply?
Prices go up. Unfortunately, many Airbnb agencies in Cape Town and around the world are oblivious to this relationship.
Qualify For CapeHolidays Airbnb Management Company Cape Town
CapeHolidays have no intention to be the largest holiday rental agency in Cape Town. No. We aim to be the best. By focusing on being the best we can make choices. As we always say,
We rather turn you down today, than disappoint you tomorrow.
But to get here we need to understand each other well.
Qualify The Owner And The Holiday Home
Qualify The House – Guests Must Go WOW!
There is a type of home that works best for Airbnb – The one that is always clean, quiet and with all the amenities a traveller needs.
Obviously, some homes will make more others less. More on house qualification.
Qualify The Owner: Airbnb Management Company Cape Town
We must spend time with the owner to clarify expectations. Here are a few issues:
An owner is an integral part of the equation. An owner can be absent in another country, but an owner who does not care will not work.
The owner must be willing to work with his agency as a partner. Any bossy or controlling kind of owner will not last.
Allowing management on his behalf is not always easy, and some owners may do this reluctantly.
Obviously, the owner can stay at his home but the agency is in control of the calendar.
The agency will allow qualified guests to stay here. These guests may be critical. And if the owner does not like criticism then it will cause issues.
Income expectations: Read the paragraph on trust again; basically we cannot make you money when your home has no trust record; the number of reviews you have is trust.
And there is a direct relationship between reviews and income. If you expect high rates from day one, year one we may find it difficult.
The owner should be an integral part of the equation.
There are many issues that we must address when it comes to the owner.
An “absent” owner (not involved), or apathetic owner, and a bossy or controlling kind of owner will not last for long with this business.
The agency must work with the owners as partners to maintain a healthy working relationship. The agency does management on behalf of the owners.
And if they are reluctant to do this, they may not be right for this business.
A few main points namely that the owner should be willing to work with the agency, trust them, and give them opportunities to maximise happiness; for the guest and the owner.
More on the ideal owners.
Owners Need An Airbnb Agency To Immediately Respond To Guests, Qualify, Close, Undersell, And Set The PlayGround.
Increasing your Airbnb home’s occupancy depends on how quickly you respond.
Owners need an Airbnb agency to act quickly. Qualify guests, close a reservation, undersell, and set the ground rules for the stay. And everything is done to get a 5-star review. We want TRUST.
The Impact Of Check-In & Check-Out On Your Goal
Checkin starts long before arrival. Your Airbnb agent must start setting the scene for arrival upon reservation.
First impressions last.
When they arrive you need a magical host to handle nice and not so nice people. And it’s critical to set the playground rules. Any agent overselling will be in trouble. But being firm is critical.
It’s a great opportunity to get feedback. And we always remind guests to give us a 5-star review. Always. You know why!
Airbnb Management Company Cape Town: Professional Cleaning
All Airbnb travellers looking for a place to stay come with their own set of expectations. They would read the reviews. Any negative remarks and you are on a downward slope.
Cleaning an Airbnb home is critical to get great reviews. Yes. But is it not the right thing to do?
A professional Airbnb agency wants happy guests. Surprise a guest with any dirt and your ratings drop. There is no compromise.
Airbnb Guest Vetting
What are your thoughts on Airbnb?
Money is great but not everything.
Do you know what other others host have said about your latest (prospecting) guest? What ratings did they get? Did you set up Airbnb to limit risky guests? We vet your guests before booking. And if we don’t like their manner we can even ask them to explain their plans. Any vague stuff and they are gone. Money is great but not everything.
Guests with positive reviews can instantly book, guests with no or few or some bad reviews cannot instantly book.
We take these new and border edge guests through a series of simple questions. Depending on their transparency we may permit them to book.
Setting expectations throughout the process, from “agreed” rules before the reservation, pre-arrival information, arrival brief and communication during the stay are geared towards setting expectations.
Fools will be fools…
Fools take advantage if they think they can get away with it.
Airbnb Pricing Strategy
Owners have various needs; some want to maximise income, some want to pay the overheads, others are worried that the empty home get’s no attention or the wrong attention.
Whatever the motivation, it’s critical for the agent and owner to define the goals. And set a pricing strategy to meet these goals.
Airbnb Marketing Strategy
For us, it is important to have a consistent marketing strategy when launching a short-term rental. To be a winner is to have a consistent Airbnb marketing strategy. But never leave the marketing to Airbnb alone.
You must do email marketing, social media, have your own direct booking website and create and maintain a Google My Business presence.
Airbnb Financials And Accounting
As your Cape Town Airbnb management company, we inform you immediately of all reservations, number of guests, dates and income. These reports are available online 24/7. And any home-related payments required are done on your behalf.
What do Airbnb management companies charge?
You have two costs. One is what we call marketing costs. Depending on who you use you can pay from 15% to 30% of the rental fee.
How much does the actual Airbnb management service cost? – excluding marketing.
Management costs are covered per booking. Consider this; guests pay a rate per day plus a once-off change over-fee, and any other fixed fees related to managing your home.
Depending on the demand and the pricing strategy the guest pays 80% to 100% of the management fees. However, if guests stay longer, which is a good idea, the number of change-overs reduce.
But the once-off cost may not cover all weekly costs.
Turning Superhost (Airbnb Management Company Cape Town) Services For Your Short Term Home Into 5 Star Reviews.
The number of reviews a guest leaves for the listing affects how many people see that listing and whether or not the host can attain or keep Superhost status.
The guest’s ratings can mean the difference between performance success, mediocrity and failure. Research also shows a direct relationship between the number of reviews and occupancy. Obvious.
It’s for these reasons CapeHolidays, Superhost Airbnb Management Company Cape Town, do focus ALL our attention on getting excellent reviews. However, it does not mean we don’t get rid of guests who don’t behave.

What Do Our Happy Owners Say?
(10) We have always been happy with your service and your comms during the pandemic have been exceptional. We love your positive attitude.
(10) It’s already perfect,
(10) Consistent good quality guests.
(10) From our perspective living overseas and relying on you entirely to create bookings and manage our property, it is difficult to think of ways for you to improve your service.
We don’t even see what you actually do for us. We only see the bookings and the money coming in. It would be easy to say the way to improve your service is to get more bookings into our house but that is too simplistic (particularly at the moment of course).
I think what I would suggest to you is just to continue doing what you are doing – namely not resting on your laurels and continually looking for new and innovative ways to promote your service and by extension our house.
You are pushing forwards during this difficult time, just keep that commitment up.
(10) Excellent service and reliability from everyone I have dealt with at CapeHolidays. Thank you.
(10) I am very happy with your work. Thank you.
(10) Carry on with the way you are doing things. Don’t change.

What do Airbnb management companies charge?
15% to 35%. Depending on the agency.
How much does an Airbnb management service cost?
On average, Airbnb management services costs 20% of the rate per night. And the management costs. There are two main options for Airbnb management fees. The first is a flat rate per month. This means that no matter how many bookings you get, you pay the same monthly rate to the management company.
We don’t believe this is in the best interest of the owner as the agent can do nothing and get paid. The second is a commission rate of 15 to 35% per booking, depending on the agency you use. Agency.CapeHolidays work on a combination of commission per booking and a management fee per booking.
This means; when we achieve a goal we get paid a commission. The second portion is the management of the home; guests pay most of this management fee once off per booking.
