US: Premier next-generation hospitality platform AvantStay is maintaining its rapid growth and market expansion strategy by adding a large portfolio of homes in Oahu, Hawaii; Joshua Tree, California; Charleston and Hilton Head, South Carolina; Vail, Colorado; and Smoky Mountains, Tennessee.
The property additions brings AvantStay’s portfolio to more than 600 homes in the United States, following the news of the company’s launch on the Emerald Coast of Florida and first international venture in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, earlier this year.
AvantStay founder and CEO, Sean Breuner, said: “On the heels of one of the largest shifts in the history of traditional hospitality, consumer demand for premium single-family homes and interest in our sector has been at an all-time high. Our 2021 outlook has been centred around one theme: growth. Launching in these new markets also showcases that we’ve been listening to what our customers truly want in their travel experiences.”
In addition to market expansion, AvantStay recently signed off on a partnership with Bonotel Exclusive Travel [Bonotel], a leading inbound marketing and distribution partner of both branded and boutique luxury hotel rooms to a longstanding base of international B2B clients. With this partnership, the company says it will be able to reach new audiences in Latin America, UK, Germany, Australia, Asia, India, Mexico and the Middle East, with access to over 60,000 travel agents.
Reuben Doetsch, co-founder of AvantStay, said: “Working with Bonotel comes at a perfect time for us given we recently launched multiple new premier destination markets. Our properties will now be available to Bonotel’s global distribution partners and will further expand our presence to a new and established international network.”
Earlier this year, AvantStay recorded its highest revenue in the company’s history, and added over 250 properties in the first half of 2021 alone. Additionally, the brand partnered with fintech company Affirm to allow guests to purchase trips in installations, and enhanced its integration with Marriott, allowing Marriott customers to use their loyalty points to book trips.
