Working at AvantStay - Redefine The Way People Travel

Mihaela Popa 4 March, 2021 | 3 min read

AvantStay is an LA-based, tech-enabled, venture-backed travel and hospitality startup founded in 2017. AvantStay is redefining the rental market by setting new standards for short-term rental experiences.

AvantStay guarantees a highly-curated experience customized to guests’ needs, using a proprietary tech suite to power bookings on the back-end, seamlessly operationalize in-field and remote management, and activate authentic and elevated consumer touchpoints.

The company leases properties, boutique hotels and commercial spaces in the US and converts them into short-term rentals. They work with Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeAway and have recently partnered with Marriott International’s Homes & Villas arm, currently offering direct bookings on over 50 OTAs.

In 2019 they have raised over $40 million in funding. The round was led by 3L Capital with Bullpen Capital, Convivialite Ventures, F-Prime Capital and Zeno Ventures.

Since then they have expanded their portfolio of properties, further developed their technology and expanded their team, all while continuing to offer exceptional customer experience.
