CoHost vs. Property Management


CoHosting is the cousin of property management but generally only for short term vacation rental locations (homes, condos, apartments, rooms, teepees, yurts, campers, etc.). Property Managers usually ensure that your long term rental property stays occupied for a minimum of 1-year and may perform rent collection, ensure landscaping, structure, and utility maintenance. CoHosts provide all the services of a property manager and additionally, hospitality service that includes location and linen cleaning services, guest communications, and website platform management for people from all over the globe, on a daily basis.


CoHosts, smile, grit their teeth, fluff, cater, and wrangle for the guest's comfort and convenience. It's not a hardship. CoHosts are normally individuals that like to go that extra mile to ensure all parties get what they want (Property Owners and Guests).
