Meredith Cowley is a passionate Social Worker turned Short Term Rental Entrepreneur. Following the birth of her son, then a diagnosis of breast cancer, Meredith re-evaluated her priorities and found a business that aligned with these.

Meredith strives to keep a healthy balance between family life and a flourishing hospitality and real estate gig. Sometimes she gets it right, but it's always a work in progress. The important part is making decisions - even in business - that are centered around what’s best for your family, instead of the other way around.

For Meredith this may look like keeping a 20-hour work week and delegating on-site work to her team, or balancing the business after her partners stepped away, or pivoting from areas like arbitrage to property management as her business continues to evolve.

Based in sunny Australia, she has grown a boutique STR business where she helps guests and property owners create memories. She is also a contributing author in the international best selling book Hospitable Hosts.
