An Airbnb property management specialist has announced that it will move into the Melbourne market to take advantage of the capital’s reputation for being the world’s most livable city.

Coming off after two years in the Sydney market, MadeComfy has expanded into the Melbourne market, with Darren Brown appointed as Melbourne regional manager.

According to Mr Brown, the expansion of MadeComfy can allow for those who wish to short-term let their property be accessible to those who are interested in profiting from those attending one of Melbourne’s entertainment venues.


Melbourne has been voted [as] the world’s most livable city for the last seven years running, and its calendar of headline ​​events​ ​continues ​to ​​attract​ ​visitors,” Mr Brown said.

“It’s easy to pop over to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena or AAMI Park to witness some of the world’s most exciting sporting events like the Australian Football League, Australian Open, Australian Grand Prix and ​​the ​Ashes, ​​or ​​to the​ ​Etihad ​​Stadium​ ​to​ ​see ​music ​​concerts ​​from ​​some​ ​of ​the ​best ​​artists ​​in ​the ​world.

Short-term rentals offer a terrific opportunity for both property owners and guests, with better returns for property owners, and improved convenience, competitive price point and comfort for guests. It’s a win-win situation.

The reason behind the Melbourne expansion is attributed to a rise in demand for short-term letting services, such as Airbnb and Stayz.

MadeComfy is not the only start-up business that Mr Brown has been involved in. He also has his hands on Vinomofo, Luxury Escapes, Expense Check and Pozible.
