What is a professional Airbnb co-host?

Due to the size of our property portfolio and the consistent quality of our service, Pass the Keys® was invited to become an official Airbnb co-host in 2018. This exclusive status provided Pass the Keys with a key account manager and direct integration with their systems so that we could dynamically update pricing, report on guest behavior and other key metrics. We have retained our advantages as a valued partner even though Airbnb has now withdrawn the program (2022).

Holiday Let Management in Dumfries & Galloway

Dumfries & Galloway welcomes visitors to this beautiful country with a bang! With over 200 miles of coastland, stunning forests and woodland, hills, mountains and countless towns, villages and hamlets, it’s no wonder that tourists from around the world have fallen in love with the local area and accommodation in Dumfries & Galloway is in such demand.

There is so much to do in the region and something for everyone, from sailing to hill climbing, quad biking to golf the choices are endless, or simply relax and enjoy the stunning scenery and beaches. Dumfries & Galloway holidays are becoming increasingly popular, and holiday lets in this area are very valuable.

Our local visitor attractions are both numerous and exciting, we are the region that inspired Peter Pan, where the world-famous poet Robert Burns lived and is laid to rest (even his favourite pub is still going strong), and the national savings bank was developed here along with the Royal Navy.

With all this on our doorstep, the region is the perfect place to own a holiday let property. The beautiful harbour towns of Kirkcudbright, Isle of Whithorn, Portpatrick & Kippford and areas with stunning sea views such as Rockcliffe, Sandyhills, Powillimount, Southerness & Carsethorne are just a few of the perfect locations that attract visitors to the region and are perfect for short term let opportunities.

With various events and festivals taking place all the year-round such as Youth Beatz in late June (the largest annual free youth festival in Scotland) to The Big Burns Supper in late January (a festival spanning 11 days which is a must for any visitor) along with the Wigtown Book Festival (a ten-day literary festival held in October each year) and the Eden Festival (a vibrant and independent boutique Scottish festival) held every June, there is always something fun happening for visitors to enjoy throughout the year resulting in high demand for property to rent in Dumfries & Galloway.
