About us

Red Kite was founded to bring a fresh and modern service to Airbnb Management and Holiday Letting.

We found local operators were too rigid and inflexible, for example tying owners in for 12 or 24 month contracts and having rules around what times of year owners can stay. Sometimes they will even charge owners to stay at their own home.

We think this is madness.  

We found that national operators don't provide the local expertise, attention to detail or proactivity that is so important when it comes to short let management.

We are here to change that and show that it can be done much, much better.

We knew existing offerings didn’t reflect what owners and guests want - we knew it could be done much better - with purpose and with personality.

Our Founder, Freddie, has worked in the travel and holiday let industry for over a decade and brings with an unwavering passion to do things better.

We know that each property has a different story.

Owners want flexibility, market expertise and a safe pair of hands - we understand that one size doesn’t fit all when we’re talking about people’s homes and hard earned holidays.

From last minute lawn mowing to helping plan the perfect proposal - nothing is too much trouble.

Our aim is very simple...

Deliver outstanding service to owners, guests and housekeepers
Use technology and personality to set us apart from the competition
Make a positive impact on our communities and planet

We have big plans to shake up the industry and expand our service to all inspiring homes and places throughout the UK.

“Freddie was a fantastic host when we decided to holiday let our house for a few months while we went travelling. He took the time to meet us in person, answered all of our questions in a timely and helpful manner and, based on the reviews, was clearly the perfect host. He was also extremely responsive to any queries we had while we were travelling and dealt with any issues right away. We cannot fault the service - very highly recommended indeed!”

“Since I chose to start using Freddie and his team to fully manage my property, my life has become easier and the rental revenues have increased dramatically. It took a leap of faith but I'm so glad that I did. Freddie has been very professional in everything he does for me, he has applied his experience to the platform profiles and his communication with customers. I can't imagine not using his services now.”

“Freddie at Red Kite manages our 2 bed short term letting in central Cheltenham. We decided to find a reliable company to fully manage the property and trust them to take responsibility for all aspects of administration and guest liaison.

We are delighted we chose Red Kite. The response from our guests is overwhelmingly positive. Freddie is always 'on the case' and his availability to respond to queries from clients is second to none.

We are extremely satisfied Red Kite clients and cannot recommend them highly enough. If you want to take a 'hands off' role go to Red Kite!”
