STAY YNA all started in Nice on the French Riviera by Simon and Amanda Walker who gave up careers in television and travel and moved there in 2007. Originally called ‘Your Nice Apartment’ our aim has always been simple: to provide high quality unique and stylish homes away from home with a personal and high quality service to guests and a personal, hassle free, fully comprehensive service to owners.
The business developed quickly and after 3 years it had over 100 properties. In 2011 we returned to the UK to have our first child and enjoy being with Grandparents and set up head office conveniently next to Stansted airport to support the French Riviera team. In 2012 Clodagh Edwards joined the team to develop STAY YNA on the stunning Dingle Peninsula. Ibiza soon followed and the Iveragh Peninsula in Kerry is being developed by Director Catherine Spain with some stunning coastal and unique lakeside properties.
Today we have 150 apartments and villas and a 40 strong team in 4 countries.
We are passionate about the homes and the service we provide and are always looking for new owners with stunning homes to join the STAY YNA family.
We have an emphasis on supporting the local community. We blog about local business and events encouraging guests to the area and to spend money in the local restaurants, bars, pubs and shops. We created the STAY YNA App so we can advertise all the local business we love at no cost. We support local producers as much as possible when buying our welcome packs and toiletries. Our team are also passionate about the local environment and we encourage recycling and reusing wherever possible in our owners’ homes!
