Meet Tom and Clare Sherlock
Hi, we’re Tom and Clare Sherlock, Owners of Pass the Keys® Chichester. We were both born in Chichester and have lived here all our lives. For many years we ran an independent hotel in Chichester and managed self-catering holiday apartments, also setting up and running restaurants and cafes across the city. We have extensive knowledge of the hospitality industry in Chichester and are thrilled to now be able to share that knowledge and help others to achieve their property’s full potential. Chichester is such a beautiful area and we are incredibly lucky to be able to live and work here.

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).
