I have really enjoyed working with the Marbella team for the past year. They have a one-stop service which substantially saves me time and energy in terms of managing my Airbnb property. Their service includes the beautiful furnishing of the entire house, purchasing all operating essentials, conducting regular repairs, and more. I can fully trust them and am very happy to see their super performance results. They have high standards for cleaning which is a key criteria for Airbnb experience. The management team is easy to communicate with and has the mindset of constant improvement. Overall I highly recommend Marbella to anyone who is seeking a good Airbnb management company.

Marbella Lane has been great! They helped me completely furnish my rental property after I purchased it and have been taking great care of it for the last 2.5 years! They have a great team and really care about the property owners and guests. They are always available and communication is great! I'm very happy with the job they've been doing and can't imagine trusting my home to anyone other than Marbella Lane!
