Full Job Description

This position will begin as a part-time, on-call position as Property Manager for busy Airbnb/Short Term Rental Management Company. There is opportunity for growth. The ideal candidate must be flexible, adaptable, trustworthy and detail-oriented.

About The Company:

At Niagara Hospitality, we welcome 20,000+ guests from all over the world to our properties. Hospitality and people are at our core, and every interaction we have is an important one. Our mission is to host our properties in a way that makes our guests feel valued, appreciated and relaxed, so they can freely enjoy their vacations, reunions and celebrations without a worry.

Role Purpose

The co-host is our frontline for ensuring a guest's stay is everything they wanted, and more. A Jack or Jane of All Trades, our co-host ooze common sense and resourcefulness. They've never met a problem they can't solve, and no guest- no matter how tired or cranky- can ruffle their feathers. Our co-host needs to marry Hospitality with Home Ownership; They can answer guest inquiries and make reservations like a boss, and then can turn right around and screw a toilet paper holder back into the wall, or stock a shower with shampoo and conditioner. No job is above or below them, no task too big or too small. Our Co-host needs to be able to get the job done, with a smile on their face and a pep in their step! They work hard, and smart, know how to leverage technology, delegate out what they can't figure out themselves, and still keep hospitality at the core of all they do.
