Meet Ali Steere
Hello, I'm Ali, Owner of Pass the Keys®- South Hams! I am passionate about where I live, and marvel at the beauty I see around every corner. There is so much more to see in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty than just its coastline and watersports. From the wonderful moorland of Dartmoor with its wild ponies and Tor's to the many National Trust properties and gardens that are just a stone's throw away in any direction. And let's not forget the fascinating history of the area. From speaking Cornish until the late Middle Ages to the tragic Exercise Tiger during the Second World War, the South Hams has such an incredible heritage that we are all very proud of. It's no surprise that the South Hams is such a popular holiday destination at any time of the year, it really does have something for everyone. Having run my own successful Airbnb here in Kingsbridge, I understand what hosting involves and what a landlord's concerns are. I also understand what guests are looking for and pride myself in getting it right. The family holiday is an important part of our childhood experience, those memories that turn into myths and legends and are talked about for years to come are also the reason why families return year after year and I love the thought of being a small part of that.Speak to Ali

Holiday letting agents in South Hams
South Hams is the southernmost district of Devon; comprising 342 square miles, much of the area and its 52 miles of glorious coastline have been officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With stunning beaches and many wonderful towns and villages, South Hams is just waiting to be explored.
It’s a wonderful outdoor environment, with rivers, moorland, coasts and the sea offering visitors a range of activities including stand up paddleboarding, yoga on the beach and sailing to name but a few. Heritage fans will love local attractions such as the Agatha Christie Trail, Dartmouth Castle and the variety of National Trust Properties.
A range of arts, music and food festivals have become increasingly popular over the years and for the nautically inclined Salcombe and Dartmouth have a big tradition of sailing regattas.
The West Country is one of the most important producers of food and drink in the UK, noted for its quality and traditional methods. In South Hams, you’ll be treated to some of the best fine dining using locally made produce. For seafood, towns such as Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe boast award-winning restaurants, while inland gastro pubs serve excellent home-cooked fare.
For all these reasons, the South Hams is experiencing a boom in staycations with short-term lets increasing dramatically. Pass the Keys South Hams is more than an Airbnb Co-host! Our holiday let management services ensure that your Devon holiday home will appear on 20+ platforms giving you the best results at the best price, all year round. The South Hams have traditionally experienced high volumes of visitors during the school holidays but occupancy isn’t limited to that. With the flexibility of short-term lets, we anticipate that bookings will continue and elongate the traditional seasons.
We are also experiencing an increase in people visiting in between property purchases as well as professionals able to work remotely. Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are not seasonal towns so whatever time of year, there will be places to eat and plenty of shops. Salcombe is more seasonal so it is best to check before booking a Salcombe holiday home out of season that you will be able to locate all that you require.
Pass the Keys South Hams are based in Kingsbridge with expert local knowledge and years of experience in property management. Our holiday let agency will take care of the entire Airbnb hosting process for South Hams holiday cottages, from start to finish, so you don’t have to. This includes professional photography, guest screening, twenty-four-hour customer support, cleaning, maintenance and so much more. Our dynamic pricing software will ensure you receive the optimum nightly rate for your South Hams cottage and with Pass the Keys client portal, you will have access to guest reviews, the option to block dates for the personal use of your property and track your income. You can also cancel our holiday cottage management service at any time. We don't believe in long-term contracts or hidden fees.
So if you’re thinking about letting for as a full-time option or just for the summer months, then why not calculate your income and let our holiday let company the rest.
