Great post @laurenkester. And if you're in London, I recommend Laundrapp (who bought my previous company Washbox) for laundry & Hassle for cleaning 😀

You nailed it, it really is a great time to manage your Airbnb – or any short-term vacation rental – remotely. We have found, as property managers of over a thousand Airbnb rentals, that turning your property into a tech-savvy rental not only helps attract more adept guests looking for these sorts of things, but also makes managing the property a whole lot easier. We use August Smart Locks which can be controlled from anywhere via a smart phone and are great for handling the initial check-ins/outs and for security purposes. Our guests love them too because it means they never have to worry about losing a key again. One other service I would recommend that you left off your great list is Nest thermostat. Not only is it a smart thermostat that will learn as it goes and adjust accordingly to save you tons on your energy bills, it can also be accessed via your smart phone anywhere – just in case!
