As one of the UK’s most popular short break destinations, it’s no surprise that the bustling seaside town of Brighton is littered with Airbnb properties, many of which are located close to the seafront and boast enticing ocean views. As a result, the town is also well catered for by Airbnb management companies who include Brighton within their radius of operations.

For hosts, Airbnb management companies can be an absolute godsend, taking away all the hassles of running a successful Airbnb while ensuring you make the most money you can out of your rental property. If you’re thinking of becoming an Airbnb host in Brighton – or perhaps you already are one but have so far been helming the ship alone – then we’ve selected three of the best management companies currently available.
One of Europe’s leading Airbnb management companies, the team behind GuestReady call upon their 50-plus years of experience in the fields of hospitality, finance and even rocket science to offer premium Airbnb management services. The company is focussed on helping landlords turn their investments into profitable income by using technology to bring the tradition of hospitality to the short-let market. They take charge of everything, from the initial listing of your property through to check in, maintenance, concierge, housekeeping and check out, providing guests with an experience akin to a high-end hotel and ensuring they return time and again – or provide 5-star feedback at the very least. Hosts can also keep track of everything from guest bookings to revenue via a dedicated dashboard.
Founded in 2018, Air Home Lets are one of the newer arrivals on the short-let property management landscape, but have quickly gained a strong reputation for its services. From running all credit and referencing checks to drawing contracts, collecting payments, viewings as well as property inspections, inventory reports and tax advice, they support hosts every step of the way. They also provide advice on furnishing your home, respond to guest queries, and manage bookings, housekeeping and maintenance. To help maximise your revenue, they review and adjust rates daily depending on events in the area as well as competitor’s activities. One other perk of using Air Home Lets is that they deduct their 15% management fees after all 3rd party fees and cleaning fees have been taken off.
HelloGuest are a premium short let and Airbnb management company that manage a wide range of rental properties in Brighton and in cities across the UK. They offer a complete end to end service that’s personalised around each host’s individual requirements and expectations and is designed to minimise rental voids and maximise returns. This service includes guest meet and greets, managing the property before and after stays, guest communication, listings management, and dealing with housekeeping staff. Each host is assigned a dedicated manager and there’s also a comprehensive interior design service that includes advice on decorating and furnishing your space to optimise its short let potential.
