Styling and furnishing expertise to make your listing stand out!

Get in touch

Pannell, Melbourne CBD

Pannel is one of our flagship listings in the heart of the Melbourne CBD.

This was our client’s first experience with short-stay hosting, so there were some natural apprehension and anxiety about the process given the significant investment it represented.

The newly purchased property was both unique in layout and a blank canvas. It required some out of the box thinking to help it shine.

Cassie and the team stepped the clients through the full styling and furnishing process which included:

  • Interior design and furnishing advice
  • Purchase of all furnishings and white goods
  • Property setup
  • Creation of a unique art installation 
  • Airbnb / Booking platform listing creation

Our feedback from the client following project end has been extremely positive, and we look forward to delivering great returns over the coming years:

“It is fair to say the apartment posed unexpected issues around furnishing, getting utilities connected, and awkward access arrangements. However, it was great having a group of people working to tackle the unforeseen challenges thrown at them – while keeping us in the loop every step of the way.  

HostKeep have taken care of everything, from the key handover on settlement to getting our place styled, furnished, listed online and guests booked – without batting an eyelid.  

These are fair dinkum people, who go about dealing with things without spin and nonsense. 

The team don’t approach their jobs in the ‘set and forget’ way you might see with some long-term managers. Given our experience to date, I know that our property is being managed and cared for as if it were their own – which is exactly what we needed, given we are so new to all of this. 

I can’t speak highly enough of our experience to date, which is saying something given how apprehensive we were at the start. “

Our Clients Say

When we first met Cassie we presented a brief that was both broad and unusual.

We wanted our apartment styled so that it would appeal to young professionals with the short-stay market in mind. However, we also wanted it to be family friendly and to our taste, not like the ‘safe’ and conservative look you might find in a display home.

Despite our concerns that this brief would be too broad for it to be successful, Cassie conducted a full site inspection, refined the brief closely with us and developed a concept plan with some fantastic suggestions to make it all work.

Cassie was at pains to make sure she understood us and understood the brief. It took some skill to bring such a wide brief together while completing a look and feel that was spot on and within budget.

She’s captured our personalities perfectly, delivered a lifestyle property which short-stay guests will love and addressed our anxieties about family practicalities for the future.

We were speechless when Cassie took us through the apartment for the first time on completion, and we are still pinching ourselves at how brilliantly everything turned out.

From the humongous abacus wall which the kids won’t be able to resist, to the ingenious antique breakfast bar which she painstakingly sourced and reshaped to fit into a previously pointless space – Cassie understood what would make our place feel comfortable and come alive.

Before meeting Cassie, we would never have considered commissioning a stylist to look after a significant project like this for our family. Now that we’ve been through it, we don’t know how we would have achieved anything close to this if we hadn’t put our faith and confidence in Cassie’s hands. She’s repaid it in spades and in ways we couldn’t have imagined.
