Frequently Asked Questions – Private Rental


How does Renafran Property Management Private Rental model work?

Essentially, we rent a property and in turn list it on Airbnb® for bookings. We manage a very successful Airbnb® portfolio as a Superhost through properties we either own, rent or co-host. When renting, the property is managed just like a normal private rental, with weekly rent paid, regular inspections and a tenancy agreement signed by both parties.

What is an Airbnb Superhost?

Superhosts are experienced hosts who provide a shining example for other hosts, and extraordinary experiences for their guests. There is a strict qualification that needs to be met quarterly to continue as a Superhost.

How can Renafran Property Rentals rent a property and then list it on Airbnb, is that not allowed?

If the owner and strata/body corporate (if applicable) has agreed, the property can be listed on Airbnb® for bookings. The agreement is noted in the special terms of the tenancy agreement.

What happens if a guest damages the property?

All our listings have strict rules of no parties, no smoking and no pets. Our strict sifting and qualifying formula for the “right” kind of tenants reduces the risk of anything. We take out specific insurance and the Airbnb® Host Guarantee also protects hosts up to $1,000,000 should accidents happen.

What about insurance?

You will need to speak with your insurance company to see if they can include Airbnb® bookings in your landlords insurance.

What type of properties do you manage?

All types – apartments and houses, granny flats, spare rooms and even house boats and caravans. Most of our properties are located in tourist areas around Australia, popular wedding locations, popular corporate hubs and anything close to the CBD.

Why would I rent to you rather than a tenant?

All our listings are cleaned by professional cleaners after each booking, meaning it will be spick and span regularly, we have a no parties rule and we need the property in working order and therefore will ensure all maintenance is done in a timely manner (at the owners cost).
No more paying management fees.
