Hosting made simple.
What is Host Happy?
We are local professionals who offer superior short-term rental management. We give your space the personalized attention it deserves - from individualized price monitoring and adjustment to creation of a one-of-a-kind space - to help you capture the full potential of your investment.
Why rent short-term?
Victoria is a world-class destination - you should get to enjoy it! Renting your space short-term gives you maximum flexibility, allowing you to decide when to host… or stay yourself. Plus, vacation rentals earn you more money, cause less wear and tear, and guests come with reviews and comprehensive insurance.
From designing and styling your space, to taking professional photos, creating your listing and welcoming guests, we take care of it all.
