Our Collaborate Plan is Now Available Australia-Wide!

Short-Term Rentals: Big Rewards, Big Responsibilities

The allure of short-term rentals is undeniable. Higher earning potential, flexibility, and the chance to showcase your property to a global audience are all major draws. But let's face it: managing a successful short-term rental is no easy feat.

Beyond the housekeeping and maintenance, there is a world of digital demands. Crafting the perfect listing, managing bookings across multiple platforms, providing guest support, screening potential guests, and optimising pricing for maximum revenue is a lot to take on.

That's where Cosmo's Collaborate plan comes in. We are here to handle the digital heavy lifting so you can focus on creating a welcoming space for your guests. We work to maximise your rental income while you maintain the personal touch that makes your property unique by facilitating housekeeping and maintenance. Thanks to the digital-first nature of this plan, it is available Australia-wide, at just 10% management commission.

What is the Collaborate Plan?

Whether you're a seasoned host or new to the short-term rental game, the Cosmo Collaborate plan is designed to streamline your operations and boost your bottom line. We understand that the administrative and technical side of hosting can significantly drain your time and resources. That's why we take care of it all, so you can focus on what you love most: creating memorable experiences for your guests.

This powerful plan includes:

Expert Listing Optimisation

We will craft compelling listings that showcase your property's unique features and attract high-quality guests. This includes professional photography, engaging descriptions, and strategic keyword placement to maximise visibility on platforms like Airbnb and Booking.com.

Seamless Booking Management

We handle bookings across multiple platforms, ensuring a smooth and efficient process for you and your guests. Our team handles inquiries, reservations, and calendar synchronisation so that you can say goodbye to double bookings and missed opportunities.

Dedicated Guest Support & Screening

We will handle all guest communication, from inquiries and bookings to check-in instructions and post-stay follow-ups. We'll also implement a thorough guest screening process to ensure your property is treated with respect. Guests are provided with an easy-to-use app that integrates with their Apple Wallet, providing an industry-leading experience.

Advanced Pricing Strategies

Our dynamic pricing algorithms and in-house analysts analyse market trends, seasonality, and local events to optimise your rates for maximum revenue. We'll help you find the sweet spot between occupancy and price, ensuring you get the most out of your investment.

Targeted Marketing

We will promote your property across various channels, including social media, email marketing, Cosmo Homes, and online travel agencies (OTAs) to reach a wider audience and increase bookings.

By leveraging our industry-leading technology and expertise, we can help you achieve higher occupancy rates, increase your average nightly rate, and maximise your rental income. With the Collaborate plan, you'll gain access to the benefits of over 20 different technology products bundled into a single management plan without the hefty subscription costs and upkeep.

Easily track all bookings and everything else you need within the Cosmo App, which is available anytime, anywhere.

We make it easy to get started

Signing up for the Collaborate plan is simple and straightforward. We prioritise transparency throughout the entire process. We'll start by analysing your property's market value and the competition in your area to ensure that short-term rentals are a viable option for your home. We will provide you with a detailed estimate for your review.

If you wish to proceed after assessing our estimate, you’ll be invited to complete an Onboarding Application. This captures all necessary listing, regulatory and booking information. Our team will then review your application to ensure it meets our requirements.

Once your application is approved, we'll create or migrate your listing, optimise it, and distribute it across multiple platforms (Airbnb, Booking.com, Vrbo, Stayz, Homeaway, and Homes & Villas by Marriott). Then, we'll create compelling content and implement a dynamic pricing strategy tailored to your property. You and your housekeepers will be able to keep track of bookings and when guests are checking in and out through the Cosmo App.

Our team will be available to assist you throughout the entire process, providing guidance and support as needed.

Team Up with Cosmo.

Whether you are a seasoned host or just starting your short-term rental journey, our Collaborate plan is designed to simplify your life and get more out of your investment property.

We are here to handle the digital details, so you can focus on ensuring the property is physically ready for guests and enjoying the benefits of your investment without worrying about the burden of complex technology and guest management.
