What's an Airbnb Professional Co-Host
Due to the size of our portfolio of properties and the consistent quality of our service, Pass the Keys® were invited to become an official Airbnb co-host in 2018. This exclusive status afforded Pass the Keys with a key account manager and direct integration to their systems so that we could dynamically update pricing, report on guest behaviours, and other key metrics. We have retained our benefits as a valued partner even though Airbnb have now retired the programme (2022).

Airbnb Management Service in Derby
The cultural city of Derby is the most centrally located city in the UK, nestled in the Derbyshire dales and on the doorstep of the stunning Peak District, no wonder the city attracts tourists, culture lovers and travellers. Derby has been built on industry, with what is thought to be the world’s first factory, the famous Lombe's Silk Mill, which dawned the beginning of the industrial revolution.
Modern day industry is still a major part of the city, home to Rolls Royce and the last train factory in the UK, Bombardier, business travel to Derby is frequent all year round. Perfectly located from all the major cities, 45 mins from Birmingham, London is just 1.5 hours and Manchester is less than 2 hrs by train. East Midlands Airport is a short 30 min drive away and serviced by buses every 20 mins, this makes Derby a great destination to rent out your property on sites like Airbnb and Booking.com
Derby really is a cosmopolitan city, visitors can quench their cultural thirst at the city museum, which exhibits many historical pieces, such as the largest Joseph Wright of Derby collection in the world. There is a renaissance in Derby’s Cafe culture, and we’ve got some of the best in the country. There are also new restaurants appearing every week with a variety of styles. In Derby, there is no shortage of places to shop. The large and commanding Derbian shopping centre is central to the city, boasting a large selection of shops, cafes, food outlets, and a large Showcase Cinema. For those who want a more ‘independent’ shopping experience, there is the newly revived Sadler Gate with boutique shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, and a shopping experience unlike many other, all based in the beautiful Cathedral Quarter. There are also some sensational parks in the Derby. Some of our favourites include Markeaton Park, Darley Park with its sweeping landscape, and Allestree Park with its golf course, lake and beautiful views.
