Their mission is to empower short-term rental managers to harness the power of data and grow brands that deliver a better rental experience. They believe that guests and property managers are best served when they have a direct relationship with each other, not intermediated through OTAs.
StayFi also simplifies the WiFi experience for vacation rental guests. All of your properties have the same branded guest network, so your WiFi instructions are the same for every property. No more dealing with individual home passwords and guest calls about how to use the WiFi.

If you've already manually created properties in StayFi, you can link your existing StayFi properties with the corresponding property in Hostaway. Linking properties is preferred over creating new properties in StayFi as it will preserve all splash page settings and guest data that has already been collected.
