Private House Stays is a booking software and accompanying platform with a difference. Founder, Cassie Bouverie, has an extensive background in the tech industry, and owned and ran her own Bed and Breakfast in Edinburgh for many years. Tired of the complicated balancing act of managing multiple bookings platforms and seeing a considerable slice of her earnings disappear into the pockets of large corporations, Cassie decided to do something about it - She designed her own booking system.
If you are a small, quality accommodation provider, Cassie’s bookings software and the Private House Stays platform are specially designed to help you maximise your margins and start getting commission free bookings through your own website immediately.
With a range of very affordable, easy to understand pricing plans, Private House Stays is a great solution for small businesses who want to provide a professional booking service which doesn’t cost them the earth. You can choose to buy a simple license for the software and set up the software on your own website or choose to have Cassie’s support and booking referrals sourced by her. You pay the license fee for the service selected and any independent bookings are commission free. If Cassie actively refers a booking to you herself through the platform, she charges just 9% commission on that booking.
Private House Stays showcases over 100 privately-owned accommodation options throughout Scotland, representing the very best in Scottish hospitality. Ranging from B&Bs, inns, guest houses and small hotels, to self-catering accommodation and glamping. The booking platform, can become a real partnership, all properties listed are carefully selected to consolidate the company ethos of slow travel and persona local holiday experiences.
"We want to provide a booking software that helps small businesses take commission free bookings from people who don’t want to stay in, impersonal hotel chains. The aim is to make booking privately-owned accommodation simple and sustainable for both the business owner and the guest. The Private House Stays website offers authentic, original, local accommodation experiences.”
