Hometime is the largest and fastest-growing platform for short-term rental operators in the APAC region and are very excited to have recently entered international markets like the US and Europe.

At our core, we partner with local hosting businesses and empower them with industry-leading technology, supporting infrastructure and scale normally reserved for large companies. Our ability to successfully scale a network of local hosts has meant we have been an official partner with Airbnb since 2018 and are fully funded to execute on aggressive growth targets.

After successfully scaling our core business locally, we’ve released a SaaS product for the global market of short term rental operators. Our ambition is to be the software partner of choice for small operators and to help them grow successful businesses through our amazing product and industry expertise. Our target market accounts for approx 50% of all Hosts on Airbnb so the opportunity is huge.
