Vacation rental hosts no longer need to wait on guests who arrive late, stop for dinner enroute, or have a flat tire. No need to take time off work, or beg friends and family to handle the key exchange with their guest.

Worst customer service experience ever after Keycafe LOST our keys. Keycafe refused to take responsibility and said it was a “user error.” After reading numerous reviews I realize this is their modus operandi. We had a number of guests give us a poor check in review solely based on their experience with Keycafe. We had one guest leave our condo unlocked with our keys on the counter as they refused to deal with Keycafe. We had a number of guests try to return keys only to have a box open up with someone else’s keys in it. I honestly feel bad for people that work there and have to take calls from frustrated people. We were SO happy to be able to dump them.
Meeting my Airbnb guest at midnight last night to check them in on a Monday night was horrendous. Luckily, now I have stored my keys 2 blocks away at a 24 hour 7-11 location. I am so much more comfortable and confident knowing my unit is self manageable, and my cleaners and guests can let themselves in without the added hassel of having to go meet them.
Be very careful with this company and always check your invoices. I’ve been having more than one problem with them already. This is the latest one: they sent me an email and gave me only 2 hour notice that the place where I store my key is shutting down due to the Coronavirus. When I saw the email it was too late and now it’s been weeks that I have to access to my spare key. They should have been proactive in finding what food businesses are choosing to close and give longer than 2 hour notice. On top of that, at the end of the month they charged me for the full month even though I haven’t had access to my key for 25 days out of 31.
