Airbnb-inspired Web Portal for a London-based Rental Property Developer

Easy and comfy all-inclusive settlement options for expats

Client and business goal

A UK-based rental property developer contracted AIS Novations for web application design and development (MVP). The web application would be a local Airbnb version for expats listing residential communities of stylish all-inclusive apartments in prime London locations.


The delivered solution is a smart web portal that makes it easy for professionals to settle in a new city. The web portal boasts an airy design with all the key functionality displayed in a neat and intuitive manner. The web portal allows the users to

  • book a new home/apartment in a few clicks;
  • find co-working and meeting spaces;
  • join community members with similar interests;
  • make payments easily and reliably.

The app is designed to be an all-in-one booking service, personal account portal (payments, account settings, optional services like cleaning) and maintenance portal to report quickly on issues like a blockage or a broken chair.
