A property in Ambleside is the first home in the Lake District to be listed on Airbnb’s newly introduced luxury platform, Airbnb Plus.
The apartment, Midland Bank Chambers Flat, has now been officially recognised on the website, after an extensive inspection by Airbnb.
The property was created and is managed by LetMe Stay, a holiday home management firm that operates throughout the South Lakes.
Craig Hill, owner of LetMe Stay, said: “We are truly proud to see this home achieve Airbnb Plus status. This unique property was a complete labour of love and took over two and a half years to fully renovate. However, the hard work has certainly paid off and we are so pleased to see this property listed on the prestigious Airbnb Plus platform.”
Craig added: “We were initially approached by Airbnb Plus two months ago. The process was in-depth and included an extensive inspection and a photo shoot by the team. The feedback showed that the apartment was one of the best properties on the site and was highly regarded for customer service and quality. We are delighted with the listing and are certainly looking forward to welcoming more visitors to enjoy lovely Ambleside this summer.”
LetMe Stay was established in 2018 and works with property owners to market their properties’ individuality, using marketing techniques to maximise revenue. The firm is passionate about the Lake District and aims to give back to the local area – donating £1 of every booking made to the Lake District Foundation. It also works with local suppliers, including Pure Lakes Skincare & Pennington’s Coffee.
Craig added: “LetMe Stay was formed from growing frustrations with large agencies that were not able to deliver results. This spurred on the idea to embark on a fresh and new approach to holiday home marketing. I am proud to say that we now have occupancies of 98% and gross revenue figures more than 156% higher than quoted by any other local or national agency.”
