Born and bred in Auckland, we have become the city's premium Airbnb management choice for clients wanting to make the most out of their CBD apartments. Founded by property investor Stefan Nikolic after he listed his own apartment on Airbnb for yields of around 11.5%, Zodiak Management has honed and perfected the art of this new form of property investing over time to set the industry benchmark in quality of service provided to both property owners and their guests. To read more about Stefan's Airbnb journey and how he got started as a property investor, then please read this blog post.
Why Choose Zodiak
Most management companies simply let guests check themselves in using a key they leave in a lockbox.
We go the extra mile and have employed staff who’s job it is to welcome every guest to their managed apartments in person, answer any questions that they may have, and make them feel welcome in a new city. This not only guarantees great guest reviews but also makes sure that the guest will respect the property when they associate a human face with the apartment. Our staff also inspect the property after every checkout, as well as after every clean, just to make sure that everything is perfect for the next guest’s stay.
Our hard work and dedication to quality has allowed us to achieve SuperHost status on Airbnb, and we are proud to say that we are the only Airbnb management company to do so in Auckland.
We are also part of Booking.com's Partner Program which is similar to Airbnb’s SuperHost status. Again, this is due to the excellent reviews we receive from guests and this gives our managed listings more visibility online converting to higher occupancy rates for your property.
As mentioned above, we do not only use Airbnb to list your apartment, but Booking.com and a direct booking website as well.
This gives your apartment maximum exposure on multiple websites. Booking.com allows us to actually charge more than what is possible on Airbnb as potential customers’ price expectations are high due to the expensive hotels they compare our listings to on Booking.com. We also list your apartment on TripAdvisor, Expedia, HomeAway, VRBO, and Agoda, as well as having our own booking website for direct bookings, to ensure that our managed listings are seen by as many customers worldwide as possible.
