With the launch of Instant Apartment, a web-based platform that provides short stay, medium and long stay property rental, tourists and travellers who don’t want to stay in hotels wherever they travel to around the world, are in for a swell time, as the platform offers customers a wide range of outstanding luxury apartment services to make their stay memorable.
The official launch of the new initiative which took place last week in Lagos, allows users to search for short let apartments and connect them with verified real estate hosts as well as property owners looking to monetize their self-owned apartments which can be booked anywhere around the world on www.instantapartment.com.
Instant Apartment has revealed a couple of services which will be rendered to ensure utmost convenience and comfort for customers. Some of the services include free pick up from the airport, provision of a car and chauffeur for mobility, free Wi-Fi, 24 hours uninterrupted power supply, swimming pool, 24/7 security, cable TV and more.
Commenting on the company’s objectives and services, the Chief Executive Officer, Instant Apartment, Mr. Ubi Franklin, remarked: “Our platform’s goal is to help customers gratify their various tastes and needs with the wide range of luxury apartments which have been made available.
“It is also an avenue for property owners to advertise their property to customers across the globe. Apartments on our platform are carefully selected and the hosts are thoroughly verified to provide the best accommodations and additional services like free meal on first day of arrival, restaurants, events, recreation centres, among others,” Franklin stated.
Some of the apartments on the platform are currently situated in Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos not too far from the country’s best hangout spots to further make customers’ stay a meritorious and adventurous affair.
The Instant Apartment boss who disclosed that he is a traveller who has gone round the world and said he stays in short let apartments instead of hotels, noted that the idea of Instant Apartment was informed by his experience in short let accommodations.
Revealing that those who have property and want to monetise their property, become hosts to the platform. He added that only registered members of the platform have access to the platform, pointing out that the platform operates 24 hours customers’ service. The CEO said the location and how well furnished a property is, determine the price of an apartment.
“Business between hosts and us is based on percentage. Our business is to promote your apartments. We make people pay less for more by our services. We have one, two, three, four and five-bedroom apartments for those who want more spacious apartments, and they can stay as long as one year in our instant apartment accommodations across the world,” Franklin noted.
The company has described the launch as a paradigm shift in the sphere of serviced apartments as their standards prove to be considerably above par.
