About DoorMat

DoorMat: Airbnb Property Management was created to serve hosts with a desire to share their space with travelers from around the world, but without the resources (namely, time) to deliver a refined experience to those travelers.

Matt, owner of DoorMat, started hosting in September 2012 in Big Bear, CA. After going through endless property managers in the Big Bear Lake area, I finally decided to devote my time and energy to mastering the Airbnb host experience. After 4 years of learning I discovered the best practices as an Airbnb host. I work hard to provide the best services to my guest and ensure they are always able to get a hold of me during their stay. I built a team of people in the area to assist my guest with every need during their stay. I pride myself on going above and beyond to make sure their stay is the best and will do the same for your property.

Think of DoorMat: We strive to provide a clean and cozy space for travelers where they can feel at home the moment they step in the door.

Am I a good fit for DoorMat?

My ideal Airbnb host (or soon to be host) has a reliable cleaner and emergency contact we can leverage. This is because DoorMat offers ‘remote’ Airbnb property management. Don’t worry! It’s still full service and you won’t hear from me. I coordinate with the cleaner, respond to all messages, do revenue management, continuously optimize the listing so it stays on page #1 of search, maintain the electronic guidebook, etc.

Why should I choose DoorMat?

I run a small, personalized operation. Every one of my Airbnb listings means a lot to me. That means you, the Airbnb host, and the guest gets personalized attention. I respond to every inquiry myself. You will have one point of contact, me.

How much will I earn?

It depends. I know 100% that you will earn more than you can by renting to a long-term tenant (fees included). I avoid estimates as I tend to be conservative (I’m not a salesman). I have greatly exceeded my expectations on every property I manage.

How are guests vetted?

After managing thousands of reservations, Doormat has developed a system that examines the guest profile and message content to determine guest quality. This is in addition to requiring a verified ID and Airbnb’s Trust + Safety department.

What happens if a guest causes damage or steals from my home?

DoorMat proactively advises hosts and takes steps to prevent damage and theft. In the unlikely event that damage or theft occurs, DoorMat works with the host to gather evidence and submit a claim through Airbnb’s Resolution Center. The host is expected to cover low-value damage and repair as a cost of doing business.

Can I cancel my contract at any time?


Why do you only list on airbnb?

DoorMat has decided to focus on the market leader, Airbnb, instead of being ‘just ok’ on multiple vacation rental platforms. This results in high occupancy and nightly rates for all of my listings including during slow travel season.

How do I get started?

Email me as much of the following info as possible:

  • Do you plan to rent for more or less than 12 months?
  • Tell me about your property
  • Do you have a reliable cleaner and/or local emergency contact?
  • Send me photos (cell phone is fine) or a link to your online listing.

If we determine that I am not a good fit for you, often I can recommend someone who is.
