Hometime was the first company offered to join Airbnb’s official Global Pro-Host Program in the APAC region.

Our official partnership with Airbnb means that we get priority support, along with a number of other additional benefits, which means when you partner with Hometime, you do too!

NAB Ventures, a venture arm of National Australia Bank, is amongst our major investors.

Outside of the funding aspect, this helps us fine tune our product offering and data structures in line with the requirements of the banking sector and helps us develop new product offerings and ongoing innovation for the short-term rental market.

To successfully manage a portfolio of short-term rental properties, requires strong collaboration with a number of key suppliers, namely qualified housekeepers, linen suppliers, maintenance personnel, furnishing vendors, etc.

Given the scale of our Hometime Hosting Partner network and our extensive number of properties under management, we are able to negotiate considerable supply discounts, which we then make available to you as part of our partnership.

Community and best practices

Throughout our years of experience, we have compiled a list of all of the best practices that are involved in successfully managing Airbnb's at scale. We have made this blueprint fully available to you, meaning you get to leverage off of all of our learnings and bypass years of trial and error.

Dedicated support from our team

Hometime is structured around specialist teams, each focused on a different part of the host and guest lifecycle. As part of our partnership you gain direct access to these teams in addition to having a direct point of contact throughout your journey with us.

Meet Lina

Since partnering with Lina ~2 years ago, together we have helped grow her portfolio of homes under management to over 120+ properties. She is by far the largest professional host in Darwin!

Who determines the cleaning fee?
