Hand over your keys the smart way.  Simple and secure key exchange solution for Airbnb hosts, serviced apartment operators, and real estate agents.


KeyNest was founded in 2016 by two Airbnb hosts, Marc and Florian. Marc was getting fed up with changing his plans to meet Airbnb guests who were arriving late, so he asked his local cafe to hold the keys for him – and that’s when KeyNest was born.
