Lavanda Named Best Short-term Rental Platform 2018

March 21, 2018

We are delighted to announce that Lavanda has been recognised as the industry’s “Best Short-term Rental Platform/Operator” at the 2018 international Serviced Apartment Awards. This award is in recognition of our pioneering solution that enables estate agents to flexibly monetise vacant property within the sales or letting cycle.

Piers Brown, CEO of International Hospitality Media commented:

“Lavanda was praised by judges for its innovation, its excellence in hospitality and the identification of a new source of accommodation that has the potential to disrupt the market. Lavanda look to bridge the gap between traditional estate agents and the rapidly evolving short-term rental sector, of which Airbnb has become synonymous.”

Our solution for estate agents

Lavanda transforms vacant properties into hotel-style accommodation and efficiently generates thousands of pounds of additional income for vendors and landlords through fully-managed “super short lets”.

Through partnership with Lavanda, estate agents gain access to an unbeatable value proposition, enabling them to delight their customers with a value-added product, win local market share, and drive new profit for their business.

Lavanda AGENT, our dedicated solution for estate agents, uses deep industry data and analytics to provide a real-time valuation of a property’s earning potential on the short-term rental market. We then provide a fully-managed, 100% compliant and hospitality-led service for short-term rental. This covers everything from property styling and furnishing, hotel quality housekeeping, professional guest vetting and yield optimisation, to managed viewings, personalised account management and the Lavanda Home Guarantee. 

Co-founder and Head of Lavanda AGENT, Frank Breckner, commented:

“Lavanda helps estate agents to stand out from the crowd and win more instructions by generating income from property that would otherwise be standing vacant. We work tirelessly to provide a hassle-free solution that creates maximum value for estate agents, vendors and landlords, with complete peace of mind.”

National rollout

Since launching last year we have seen incredible demand from agents, validating the clear gap that exists in the market.  We now look forward to rolling out to all major cities, including London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, York, Leeds, Edinburgh and Dublin.
