Concierge Services for Owners & Guests


Concierge extraordinaire Julie Lawson – principal of Bees Knees Holiday Property Services – is offering her corporate property management, real estate and customer service skills to make life easier for Port Douglas AirBnB owners and visitors.

Whether it is management support for the region’s 500 AirBnB properties or catering for the needs of the thousands of visitors to Port Douglas every month, Julie and Bees Knees can simplify your experience with a range of hands on services.

With an extensive understanding of the property market in Port Douglas, Julie realised that many absentee owners with holiday or investment properties in the region found it challenging to achieve the benefits of the burgeoning AirBnB market. They have a home in paradise but are missing the financial rewards of short term rental markets because of the challenges of day to day management from a distance. Bees Knees Services has the answer – they can assure owners that your property is being cared for in a professional way and that your guests’ needs are being catered for by a friendly, helpful team.

Our aim is to look after the owners along with providing a service for the guests.

Putting the ‘person’ back into personal service – let us be your busy!!


As a Unit holder at Saltwater Luxury Apartments, I am pleased to provide a testimonial for Bees Knees Holiday Rental Property Services Pty Ltd.

I started with Bees Knees at the inception of the business and really appreciate the transparency of costs, the ability to use the Unit as and when I like and for as long as I like.

I make the same return as I did before using this service, sometimes even more but, have a much higher level of service provided to me.  I have used the On-Site Manager process in the past and find Bees Knees a much better option.

Julie manages my AirBNB site and has maintained my “Super Host” status throughout.

The company provides many options to clients to enhance their stay by offering tours, local restaurant referrals, travel advice for the region and attends to any other needs they may have, always in a very prompt and friendly manner.

Julie is efficient at her role, has a wonderful rapport with the clients and is a delight to deal with.

I am very happy to recommend Bees Knees Holiday Rental Property Service and am very confident that you will be too if you allow them to take on the management of your property.

Julie has been looking after our unit since we put it with Airbnb in May 2018. She has and is doing an excellent job with managing the guests and looking after all cleaning and maintenance requirements. We highly recommend Julie for anyone wishing to have their property with Airbnb.
