Indulge and relax – in a home away from home – with the winner of Most Trusted Short Term Vacation Rental Company, 2022, Maison Privee, for your incredible Dubai experience. Maison Privee was founded in 2017 with a mission to become the accommodation provider of choice for business and leisure travellers to Dubai. The company has since become a leader in the UAE short stay accommodation market with plans to continue its expansion following a USD$4m Series A funding round. Maison Privee fuses the comfort of a home with the convenience of a hotel, hand picking the finest apartments, penthouses and villas which guests can book for short or extended stays.

From the beginning to the end of a guests stay, Maison Privee provides an attentive, well-rounded service. Indeed, the company endeavours to support its guests, with curated check in and out, leveraging its 24/7 support team for any questions or troubleshooting during the stay. Their dedicated Guest Relations Executives offer concierge services, personalised meet and greet with professional cleaning services, fresh linens, towels, and toiletries between stays, along with management of special requests. The company prides itself on the high-quality service it provides. Since its founding, it has hosted over 28,000 guests and has garnered numerous glowing reviews exemplified by its retention of ‘Superhost’ status on Airbnb for over two years in a row. This success, of course, is credited to its hard-working, dynamic team. Maison Privee empowers its team by giving them full ownership of their responsibilities and encourages employees to grow into positions where they become leaders. Furthermore, when hiring, the company searches for people that will embrace the fast-paced nature of the role. As a high- growth company, there is an enhanced focus on finding and developing talent that can add something new to the business. In turn, this ensures progression, and allows Maison Privee to continue expanding its services. Long associated with the ultimate in luxury hospitality, Dubai also boasts the ultimate in residential developments. Maison Privee enables access to the very finest homes the city has to offer, giving each guest the opportunity to live like a local in the most ultimate properties. Maison Privee understands that no two customers are the same, and it is with this in mind that the company targets a variety of demographics using different methods. Taking the different needs and requirements of its guests into account, Maison Privee takes advantage of its ability to choose different property styles in different locations, service and experience packages, and price ranges, resulting in the attraction of guests of different backgrounds from around the world. Over the past couple of years, the key challenge for many businesses has been the Covid-19 pandemic. For Maison Privee, this was no different – however, it was able to successfully navigate such issues due to the flexibility of its model. Pivoting towards allowing extended stays, Maison Privee was able to continue providing a service to guests throughout lockdowns, economic uncertainty, and restrictions. In addition, the rise in ‘staycations’ proved to be a benefit as the company was able to effortlessly cater to the demand. The company optimised its digital marketing strategy, developing a well organised and structured plan to increase bookings and drive repeat customers. 2021 was a busy year for Maison Privee. Building on partnerships with numerous companies, including JETEX, a private jet operator, and Archipelago International, the largest independent hotel chain in Asia. Forging such relationships gives Maison Privee the opportunity to market towards clients on a larger scale – capturing an audience in international markets. Ever increasing in momentum, the company has recently become the first partner of Marriott Homes & Villas in the Middle East region and has expanded its business to Abu Dhabi, adding over 100 new units to its portfolio. The upward trajectory continues into 2022 and beyond. Contact: Paul Mallee Company: Maison Privee Web Address:
