RESIDE Worldwide, Inc. (www.staywithreside.com), a premiere prop-tech alternative accommodations firm with operations in over 19,000 cities and 60 countries (RESIDE), announced today the creation of an innovative partnership with Homelike (www.thehomelike.com) one of Europe’s fastest growing prop-tech start-ups. The Homelike marketplace offers a comprehensive portfolio of over 70,000 self-catering furnished apartments, aparthotels, serviced apartments and studios in 400 cities throughout Europe. The firms announced the Homelike properties will now be added to RESIDE’s global marketplace aggregator platform, 3SIXTY, providing its clients and guests significantly expanded options in key international business travel and leisure markets.
“We are thrilled to add the vetted and professionally managed Homelike inventory to our rapidly expanding 3SIXTY tech platform,” said Lee Curtis, CCHP, CEO and Co-Founder of RESIDE. “It is critically important for us to ensure the options we make available to our Fortune 500 client base meet the highest standards as we aggregate, curate and advocate on behalf of our traveling guests. Homelike has quickly established itself as an inventive leader in our space with a state-of-the-art approach to serving some of the world’s largest corporations.”
With ready access to over 1 million properties, RESIDE continues to build upon an unrivaled network of local suppliers and a diversified array of property types, all while remaining hyper-focused on meeting and exceeding duty of care deliverables. This commitment is reflected in the recent addition of unique and exclusive adjuncts to the program like the GeoSure aggregate safety scoring for each property and Stay Well rooms by Delos.
Homelike’s mission and culture is similarly guest-centric and health and safety-oriented, as evidenced by such operational enhancements as their dedicated Enhanced Hygiene Initiative or flexible cancellation policies. Both companies are wholly-confident this alignment will allow the Homelike inventory to seamlessly fit into the broader RESIDE offering, making the strategic combination a powerful force across the continent.
“We believe our Homelike marketplace opens additional outlets for RESIDE’s clients and guests seeking well-appointed properties in our growing list of cities, including Berlin, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich, Cologne, Vienna, Brussels and, most recently, Valencia.” said Dustin Figge, Founder at Homelike.
