Airbnb Management Dubai FAQs

How often will my home be occupied?

Our property management services maximise income through high occupancy and optimum pricing. Using various rental platforms like Airbnb, we ensure that each listing is consistently generating income. For those who also live in the home on occasion, our holiday management system works around your schedule to make sure that your home is always clean and ready for you when required.

In the event of damage, we handle all aspects and correct the situation. Airbnb offers a Host Guarantee that protects hosts worldwide if damage occurs during an Airbnb occupancy. We will also implement our own policies, such as guest deposits to mitigate this risk. Please get in touch for more details

I have an empty property I would like to list. Can you help?

Absolutely. Frank Porter offers full porter service and interior design — we can have your home prepared for listing without taking up your valuable time. This management service is recommended for investment properties, as our design and listing experts will stage for maximum revenue.

Does it matter when I list my short term rental property?

The sooner your home or apartment is listed, the sooner you can generate revenue. An important part of Airbnb success is the ratings guests leave after each visit. Once your property is listed, our Airbnb management begins generating quality ratings that increase booking frequency and revenue. Airbnb is relatively new to Dubai. With its increasing popularity comes growth in traffic and revenue that are immediately beneficial to the homeowner. This is an optimal time to use Frank Porter’s Airbnb management services to list and manage your property for short-term letting.

Can I run a short term rental myself?

Yes. Due to new policies, you can now list your property independently. It requires applying for a holiday home licence with Dubai Tourism, listing through Airbnb, and maintaining your home and listing. You will need to have a contact person in Dubai if you are not local during bookings, register guests’ passports with Dubai Tourism, and pay monthly fees.

Can tenants list their home or is it only for homeowners?

Yes. Tenants can list their home with Airbnb provided they follow all procedures and register a No Objection Certificate with applicable documentation from the homeowner. This states that the homeowner agrees to the subletting of the property through Airbnb. Our property management team will ensure that your documentation is appropriate so you can generate income through this lucrative opportunity.

How much money can my short term rental generate?

To get the most accurate estimation of how much money your property can generate, we recommend our calculator. The amount you can earn depends on the area your property is located and the number of bedrooms it has.

How do I ensure the vacation rental company I'm dealing with is reputable?

We are a fully licensed holiday homes operator in Dubai. We follow all recent regulations, according to the DET (Dubai Economy and Tourism Department) formally the DTCM, and our reviews speak for themselves!

Who regulates the holiday homes sector in Dubai?

The holiday sector is regulated by Dubai Economy and Tourism Department, which has strict rules on short term rental properties. Don’t worry though, as we’ll sort out all of the legalities on your behalf.
