Property management platform Guesty unveils Guesty for hosts

Guesty, a leading property management platform that automates and streamlines all complex operational needs accompanying short-term rental management, announced the unveiling of Guesty For Hosts (Formerly Your Porter App), it’s newly branded and enhanced offering for small hosts and property owners. Built for the needs of those managing a handful of rentals, Guesty For Hosts is cost-effective, intuitive, fully optimized for mobile and has new users better managing their listings in a matter of minutes.

Guesty’s legacy product, now Guesty For Pros , will continue to service larger hospitality megabrands and enterprise businesses. With the unveiling of Guesty For Hosts, Guesty cements its footprint as the property management software serving the entire alternative accommodation ecosystem – from small family run businesses to enterprise megabrands.

Guesty For Hosts boasts key features including a Unified Calendar to manage all reservations across Airbnb,, VRBO and more, in one centralized location; a Direct Booking Website Builder that creates a branded website immediately, enabling users to earn more revenue per reservation; Cleaning Management Tools with a dedicated staff portal to schedule cleanings, report tasks and create individual property checklists; and simplified Guest Communication with auto-response messaging templates that save users 40+ hours per week. All these features, and more that the platform offers, can be utilized on-the-go via the Guesty For Hosts mobile app ( iOS and Android ), or on desktop.

Amiad Soto, Co-Founder & CEO, Guesty: “With short-term rentals now the leading accommodation choice in the COVID-19 – era as they offer privacy, comfortable work-from-home setups and longer-stay amenities – more individuals are looking to participate in this ecosystem. We are excited to launch Guesty For Hosts to give those starting out, or those currently running smaller-sized rental operations, a tool that can help them automate key areas of their business so it can run on autopilot. The transformation of Your Porter App into Guesty For Hosts provides users with more support, enhanced capabilities and a platform backed by Guesty’s industry-leading Product and R&D team which has implemented a new design to elevate the user experience.”

In April 2021, Guesty acquired Your Porter App and raised $50M in Series D funding, led by the Apax Digital Fund, with participation from the AMI Opportunities Fund, both advised by Apax Partners (“Apax”), and existing investors Viola Growth, Flashpoint, Vertex Ventures, Kingfisher Investment Advisors and La Maison Partners. The round cemented Guesty’s position as the highest-funded property management software worldwide. Since graduating from Y Combinator in 2014, Guesty has continued to build a flexible, smart software in a fragmented market, providing customers in over 80 countries with an end-to-end solution in which they can manage their portfolio of properties across a variety of online travel platforms. The launch of Guesty For Hosts furthers the company’s one-stop-shop vision.
