Can you tell us a bit about you, Mabin?

Why is Maidstone & Medway good for short-let?
Maidstone lies in the heart of the beautiful countryside and is home to many attractions such as Leeds castle, various museums, numerous orchards and hop farms. The location is perfect: it is situated within a short commuting distance to and from London, with beautiful beaches to the southeast of England and easy access to mainland Europe.
Medway is a historic town, which is also well known for being the birthplace of Charles Dickens. Not to mention the famous Chatham dockyard and the Royal Engineers Museum, which pique the interest of many tourists. The area simply has everything to offer, similar to Maidstone, and is slowly becoming the suburb of ever-expanding London.
The future is bright for these beautiful towns as business, leisure, travel and tourism are thriving within the areas, providing a perfect opportunity for property owners to maximise their income by joining Pass the Keys.
What is your top tip for property owners on short-term letting sites like Airbnb?
My top tip for property owners is to ensure that their property is presented in a way which showcases all of its attractive features; whether this be features of the property itself, or attractions/landmarks in the surrounding area of the property. Therefore, high-quality photographs and detailed descriptions are fundamental when trying to attract customers, and I can ensure that both of these factors will be implemented when listing your properties.
