Vacation Rental Management

A recent report by, a vacation rental analytics company, indicates that average daily rates in Dubai are the 3rd highest in the world.  For Dubai real estate investors, this presents an obvious opportunity.

For vacation rental property management services, however, this means the Dubai market is fiercely competitive.

For this reason, vacation rental managers must up-there-game!  Gone are the days where you snap a few photos on your iPhone, pop them on Airbnb and watch the money roll in.  Things have become more complicated!


Of course, Dubai vacation rental services should provide exceptional hospitality for your guests.  But in such a competitive environment, exceptional hospitality is not enough.  Sophisticated marketing tech that optimizes dynamic pricing and manages a property's availability are indispensable.

FAQ:  Short Term Rental Company
 1. Who regulates the Holiday Homes sector in Dubai?

Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) regulates the Holiday Homes sector in Dubai. Unlike many cities around the world, DTCM was swift to regulate the sector with very clear guidelines and definitions. In many respects, Holiday Homes are regulated in a similar way to Hotels, though they do have their own explicit governing documents and bylaws. The latest Resolution issued by DTCM can be found here It is worth noting, that while DTCM issues the Resolutions governing Holiday Homes, it is Dubai Economic Depart who issue licenses to Professional Holiday Home operators.

2. Is a "Holiday Home" the same as a "Short Term Rental" or a "Vacation Rental"?

Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) officially uses the term "Holiday Homes" to reference the sector. However, the use of the term "Holiday Homes" can be slightly confusing, as a huge portion of people who stay in short term accommodations are not on 'Holiday' as the name would imply. This is particuarly true during the pandemic, when many residents wanted flexible accomodation because of jobloss etc., and 'holidays' were virtually nonexistent. See Gulf News article for reference. Broadly, all these terms imply the same thing: a furnished, residential dwelling, that is operated for the purpose of hosting guests for less than 90 days. We prefer the term "Short Term Rental" to describe the sector, because its generic enough to describe all the different reasons people chose to stay (vacation/holiday, business, resident stays, etc.).

3. Is a license required to operate a Short Term Rental / Holiday Home in Dubai?

A property owner (or 'authorize tenant'), can legally operate a single Holiday Home without a license, according to DTCM guidance. A Holiday Homes license is required if more than one property is going to be operated by the same individual. See most recent DTCM here for more details.

4. Can I run a Short Term Rental myself?

The short answer is, yes. However, operational realities will quickly make the average person reconsider. A few 2am check-ins, overnight waterheater problems and incessant guest questions ("How do I turn the TV on") makes most people realise leaving it to the Pros is a better option.

5. How much can I make with my Short Term Rental?

Not every property is well suited for Short Term rental. That being said, it's not uncommon for property owners to earn 30-40% more than with traditional long term contracts. Be wary of so called "Revenue Estimators", as any operator who is giving a revenue estimate without seeing your property is not being entirely forthright. Individual characteristics of a property have a big impact on earning potential (views, amenities, etc.)

6. Is there a major difference in how STR operators perform for their clients?

Yes! The sector is primed for consolidation, as the barriers to entry are low which has led to an overabundance of operators (many whom do not have the sophistication to consistently deliver returns). Successful operators need to act with the sophistication of major hotel brands to compete in what has become a very competitive market.

7. How big is Dubai's Short Term Rental market?

As of January 2020 there were 13,000 Active Dubai properties reported across Airbnb / VRBO (according to For context, Dubai has just over 100,000 Hotel rooms on offer, which means Holiday Homes represent a sizable portion of the accomodation market in Dubai. Furthermore, in the year leading up to Jan 2020, over 600 Million AED in revenue was reported by Airdna across Dubai for the preceeding year. Make no mistake, a combination of proactive regulation and booming tourism numbers (Covid-19 aside), means STR will be a forced to be reckoned with for years to come.

8. What happens if a guest damages my Short Term Rental property?

Broadly speaking, this concern is overblown. We've hosted over 10,000 stays across two continents, with no meaningful damage inflicted on our properties (that's not to say it never will happen).
