Homestay management service Hostmaker has added three new European cities to its roster as it continues its global expansion following a $15million funding round last year.
It will be launching in Florence, Cannes and Madrid this month in Italy, France and Spain – three countries it is already active in.
Hostmaker offers hospitality services for homestays and has grown 400% year-on-year since it was founded in 2014 by former hotelier Nakul Sharma.
Over the last three years, it has expanded into four markets. Including the addition of Lisbon in November as well as the three additions, it is launching in four markets in four months.
It is targeting property landlords and primary and second-home owners with its service that offers housekeeping, photography, pricing reviews, guest relations and listings on popular booking platforms.
Sharma said: “We have continued our fantastic growth from previous years into 2018, and we are delighted to be able to announce these latest expansions. We will be rolling out the full service in the coming weeks and look forward to welcoming new customers and team members to Hostmaker.
“This is an exciting time for the company and we are rapidly developing the Hostmaker brand across Europe, which shows our model is working, and we are growing responsibly.”
