Hassle-free Short-Let management that optimises your rental income.
Local holiday letting expertise, national know-how
Meet Danny, Jasmine, and Leah
Hi, we’re Danny, Jasmine, and Leah and we are very pleased to meet you. After years of managing a very successful holiday business in Thailand and having a few long-term lettings in England, we’ve now decided to come back home to the Totnes & Torbay area, aka The English Riviera. This uses our knowledge of the holiday home business and short-term lettings management to run Pass the Keys® in Torbay & Totnes. We have realised the huge financial benefit and enjoyment that comes with converting to short-term lettings rather than managing long-term lettings. It makes our hosts richer and happier and gives them more time back to enjoy their lives hassle-free. We are excited to offer our services to our home town making Torbay & Totnes a great place for many more visitors to enjoy! Airbnb hosting in Torbay is growing every day and Pass the Keys is their number 1 co-host. Therefore if you have a property that can be a holiday cottage home rental in Torbay (Torquay, Paignton and Brixham) and Totnes, we at Pass the Keys Torbay and Totnes are very happy to offer 100% total management of short-term let/holiday cottage properties in Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Totnes and the surrounding area.

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).

Holiday letting agents in Totnes
Sitting on the banks of the River Dart, you can find the historical town of Totnes, which dates back to 907 A.D. and is the real world ‘Real World Narnia’ that Totnes is twinned with. Totnes really has the quirkiest market town experience you could imagine. It appeals to the country type, arts and crafts devotees, spiritualists, health and well-being enthusiasts including yoga, meditation and alternative way of life folk who tend to gravitate towards Totnes. The river is the perfect scenic backdrop for short walks and riverside eating, kayaking and canoeing. The high street is full of unique and independent shops and eateries and also has stunning architecture, fascinating history and local legends. Another standout in Totnes is its promotion of ethical and fair trade goods and since the 12th century to the present day, Totnes has had bustling markets on the Market Square. The weekly market is on Fridays and Saturdays. The Elizabethan market is each Tuesday morning, May to September, when traders dress in Elizabethan period costumes and every third Sunday, there is a food market which is aptly named the Sunday Food Market.
In and around there are river trips on the Dart, scenic walks and cycle routes, interesting museums, the historic Totnes Castle, a ride on a steam railway, and many art galleries. For wine and cheese lovers, Sharpham Vineyard is the perfect day out - set on the banks of the River Dart, enjoy a tour of the winery and taste its award-winning local produce. If you enjoy that, you’ll love the Cider Press. For kids, there’s the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, Pennywell Farm and China Blue. Connoisseurs will love Dartington Hall estate and gardens. And let’s not forget Totnes is South Devon’s gateway to the outstanding area of natural beauty and much loved Dartmoor.
