About Us

Canberra Airbnb has disrupted traditional property management services and empowered owners to achieve outstanding returns without giving up access to their homes. More than 70 property owners are enjoying Airbnb Management in the sharing community offering incredible experiences to people from around the world.

Our Story

Canbnb was created in Canberra in early 2017 when Grant, our first client, started his PhD at ANU while still living and working on the Gold Coast. Grant bought a small apartment in Canberra to use during his periods of research, for two months at a time.

Once he realised the apartment would be empty for half the year, Grant began to look for an alternative to long-term tenants. He stumbled upon Dan who was looking for an opportunity to start a business in the sharing economy through Airbnb Management after working in the Australian military for more than 15 years.

Dan created Canbnb Airbnb Management to help Grant and many others maximise their property returns through Airbnb.
