“Our experience with the new Kigo website has been nothing short of impressive. The simple and functional design is in keeping with today’s trend. We really like the property search feature, which is fast and easy to use. Property search results are clear and eye catching, similar to what you’d expect in popular website portals for holiday rentals. Performance has been consistently fast. One priority we always had when evaluating Kigo Websites and other similar technology offerings in the market was mobile responsiveness, knowing that a growing number of our clients are accessing our website from mobile. Very early on we realised Kigo Websites have a remarkably mobile responsive design. And we can tell the team behind it are committed to improve on this even further from the constant updates to the platform, with each update resulting in the website looking even better on mobile. We’re happy with our decision to go for a Kigo Website and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a new website for their holiday rental business.”

Kigo Vacation Rental Software Reviews
“This software is the business – This is a big company, with serious resources, that listens. It’s a very rare find in today’s world. The software already addresses industry issues well (let me tell you how many hotel software salespeople have tried to sell me something completely unsuited for this industry….) Kigo does a fantastic job, it continues to improve, because that is part of their business model.”
Ian Macaulay, TDG
“Perfect fit for our needs – Kigo was our best decision at the time we approached the short-term rental market. Kigo let us be confident and able to use it from the beginning. It’s easy to use and easy to learn. Kigo also creates an advantage in our third-party property management, getting us the ability to provide useful reports, statements and value to owners. That’s a big plus, since this creates a very good relationship with owners, so that they are always confident in what we are doing for them.”
Luigi Fabiani, Apartment Siena
“Excellent software for the industry – Overall, the software is excellent. Pricing mechanisms, portal integration and Guest App elements of the product are absolute standouts.”
David Lee, Uptown Apartments
“Good product. Even better people! – We have been using Kigo since the beginning of the year to manage our Bali villas and we cannot imagine going back. The customer support has been second to none in our case and we always have access to a Kigo team member if needed.”
