What's your business, and who are your customers?

Primestay Vacation Homes Rental LLC is a holiday home rental company and is a labor of passion and hard work. I started my career in Real Estate in the year 2014 as a broker, wherein I offered serviced apartments and hotels to my clients who were looking for short-term rentals. I saw the huge potential of the short-term demand in Dubai because of the volume of clients from tourists, residents, investors, medical tourism, and corporate clients who are looking for fully furnished and serviced apartments/villas in residential towers/communities. Basically, clients that are looking for a home away from home.

As a company, we understand the process of setting up a vacation home and welcoming guests, and providing hotel services with the comfort of a personal home. We take care of all our stakeholder's assets by generating a higher return on their investments and maintaining properties in pristine condition.
