Host & Stay wins big at international awards

A North East holiday lettings firm has beaten its global rivals to win an award for its management services.

Host & Stay, which is based in Saltburn, North Yorkshire, won the prize for best leisure property management company at the recent Short Term Rentalz Shortyz awards – one of only two UK-based companies in the category.

The property management firm, which was set up by Dale Smith in 2018, has enjoyed rapid growth over the past two years, and now has more than 600 holiday properties on its books.

The category judges were looking for entrants that could demonstrate their growth, as well as proactive and effective marketing, staff development and tangible benefits to clients.

Our Redcar | Cleveland Ambassador, Dale Smith, was also shortlisted in the Rising Star category, said:

“For the submission we documented our growth, our processes and also shared our team video, which went down really well with the judging panel. At Host & Stay, we pride ourselves on doing things differently, for both our clients and our team.”

“For our clients, we offer full management of properties thanks to our growing in-house team. From the styling and photographs of the property, to marketing it and handling bookings, we give owners a full end-to-end service.”

“We also recognise that our team are integral to our ongoing success, and wherever possible we employ people from the local area, in order to continue to support our communities.”

Host & Stay is part of The SDDE Smith Group, a portfolio of property-based companies operating in a variety of fields, including legal services, construction and interior design. Dale added:

“The Shortyz are one of the top awards in the short-term rental sector so we are delighted to have come out on top this year, especially after being shortlisted in 2021.

“It’s a testament to the hard work that the entire Host & Stay team has put in across the last 24 months, and also to the other supporting brands within The SDDE Smith Group, that makes Host & Stay stand above the crowd.”
