Frequently Asked Questions

We currently operate in:
Southern Peninsula, Cape Town 

Email [email protected] and we will call you back to setup a viewing of your property. We will guide you through the process from there.

We will have your property up and running with 10-14 days once it is ‘guest ready’.

We are used to taking over existing Airbnb listings. We will happily manage any existing guest bookings and incoming guest communications, as long as we can get the right access to your property & listing in the right time frame. Once you sign up with us, all of your existing and future bookings will be managed under our HomelyHosts management team.

Our listings usually take 3-5 guest bookings to ramp up. Due to the seasonal nature of the vacation rental market, this can vary depending on the time of year.

Your home should be available for vacation rentals for a minimum of 6 months of each calendar year. This makes it worth our while to devote time to marketing and establishing your online profile so that you can reap better revenue.

Your property needs basic items that guests expect in a modern vacation rental. We’ve summarised these below for you. If you don’t have all of these, let us know and we can purchase them and charge you during the on-boarding stage.

  • Uncapped WIFI
  • Pillow (2 per person), duvet, mattress protector, 2 sets of 200 thread count white percale cotton linen, and curtains, lamps, clothes storage, hangers
  • Toaster, kettle, microwave, bin, cutlery, plates, bowls, cups, glasses, pans, pots, coffee plunger or machine.
  • Kitchen utensils (we can provide you with a full list)
  • Hair dryer
  • Clothes rack
  • Toilet Brush
  • Iron & ironing board, mop & bucket and vacuum cleaner
  • Smart TV or TV with DSTV
  • Aircon or fan & heaters
  • Comfortable seating for all guests
  • A safe (we can help with this)

We suggest removing items of high monetary or sentimental value. You may leave other personal belongings in the home provided they are stored & locked away and leave sufficient space for guests to unpack their belongings. However, some décor and personal touches in the home as these help create a welcoming environment, however, please remove all personal photos.

We list on Airbnb and Booking.com. We also advertise on social media.
