Having managed high-end boutique hotels No.15 Great Pulteney and The Bird, I know that occupancy levels for accommodation in Bath are very high, and want to offer hosts the potential to maximise their short let rental income without the hassle.

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 Bath
With its stunning Georgian architecture, rich history and surrounded by breathtaking countryside, Bath is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in England. Tourists flock to Bath to admire its Roman history and experience the famous natural thermal spas. Additionally, visitors are drawn to the city’s acclaimed arts and sporting scene and its compact shopping centre bustling with fantastic places to sample local produce. Bath is also appealing to those looking for a country break, the city centre is a stone’s throw from the beautiful and rural walking terrain of the Cotswolds, with mesmerising views across the city and beyond.
Due to its high volume of tourists, the city's occupancy level is extremely high. The demand for holiday cottages in Bath is constant, as more and more people opt to holiday with family and friends in cost-effective private accommodation. Business travellers and employees working on short term contracts also require self-catering accommodation in Bath for short periods. Real estate sales in Bath are soaring and competition is high, with buyers only able to put in offers on prominent properties if they are ready to proceed with immediate effect. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for short-term rentals for people in-between homes.
Bath is a compact city, and although it is always popular to stay close to all the action in the city centre, many visitors prefer to be in quieter locations that are easily accessible to walking terrain. Bath holidays attract tourists all year round, but spikes in visitor numbers are particularly noticeable during the Bath Christmas markets, Bath festival and Bath rugby season. There is also a boost in the tourist industry when local art galleries and museums hold prestigious exhibitions, and the Bath Royal Theatre hosts popular plays and concerts. Tourism rates will typically peak during the school holidays and in the summer months but the city is a popular attraction all year round.
Our Airbnb management company can help you optimise your Bath holiday rental without the effort and stress normally involved in Airbnb hosting. Here at Pass the Keys Bath, we have a thorough knowledge of the local market and quality operational expertise. We are an Airbnb agency that goes above and beyond to ensure your Bath property is well advertised, beautifully presented and fully serviced to meet all guest’s expectations and needs. From guest vetting, Airbnb cleaners to 24/7 guest support, our local holiday let management company provide it all!
We are Bath's leading short-term letting agents
