Thinking about Airbnb for your property?
Toodle is the one-stop shop for property owners who want to earn income from their short-term rental property, without the hassle. We look after everything: finding guests, welcoming guests, cleaning up after the guests - just 'Toodle it' and it's done!
At Toodle we manage your property like it’s our own, from advertising it on multiple booking sites, to welcoming your guests and taking care of all the details that ensure it always stands out and gets great reviews.
Toodle presents your property professionally
Your property’s advertisement will be written by a professional copywriter who draws on the experience of writing hundreds of property reviews. This creates an advertisement that works hard to showcase your property’s best features.
We can also arrange professional photography at rates that take advantage of our superior purchasing power.
Toodle finds your guests
We ensure that potential guests see your property by listing it on multiple websites, including Airbnb and booking.com.
Toodle works hard to maximise your revenue
We bring valuable strategic insight to our relationship with you, by reviewing competitors’ rates and forecasting anticipated demand on event calendars that highlight shows, conferences and sports events where increased demand will support higher rates. Toodle’s commitment to delivering a superior guest experience is also another important factor, by driving repeat business and the great guest reviews that help to motivate first-time bookers.
Toodle keeps you informed
Our comprehensive service offering produces a wealth of information that we use to identify tends in demand, pricing competitiveness and guest expectation. This ensures we are meeting performance benchmarks and provides you with up-to-date advice to maximise your returns. Owners of managed properties can also choose to access continuously reviewed, real-time reporting on their property.
Auckland’s short-term rental accommodation bed tax (APTR)
The recent introduction of APTR (Accommodation Provider Targeted Rates)needn’t put you off listing your property. APTR is simply a cost like any other and Toodle can suggest the rate you should set for your property to take this cost into consideration. And because APTR is applied as a sliding scale that reflects how many nights your property is booked in a year we keep you informed on how you’re tracking. You can download our latest information sheet on APTR [here].
Toodle can look after all guest engagement.
If a completely hands-off experience is important to you we can look after everything.
Our services include:
Depending on your property’s location, we can personally meet your guests on arrival, if that’s your preference, or alternatively provide a secure key dropbox on location so guests can retrieve their key when they arrive.
Cleaning up after your guests, using our own professional cleaners who know exactly what to do to make sure your property is ready to welcome your next guests or you back into your own home.
Toodle provides a 5-Star hotel-grade linen and towel service to ensure every guest begins their stay with professionally laundered sheets and bathroom towels. We also make sure a welcome pack of tea, coffee, tea towels, bathroom necessities and toilet rolls are in place for every new booking.
