Elena Beguiristain, Owner

Hello friend!

I am passionate about hosting, all things travel, STR investing, specifically luxury and unique spaces. There's something magical about submersing yourself within local culture and community. I believe in authentic human connections while providing beautiful spaces of solidarity and comfort.

My Story

As the Founder and CEO of Local Haven Stays, I help property owners optimize their short-term rental performance with my expertise in STR management. I have over 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, and I have successfully launched and grown my own company that provides end-to-end solutions for hosts and guests.

I am also a Project Manager and a Host Ambassador at Airbnb, where I have recruited and managed multiple properties into the Airbnb program since 2016. I oversee all aspects of reservations, operations, maintenance, administration and improvements of investment properties, and ensure high standards of quality and service for guests and owners alike. I am passionate about creating memorable and comfortable experiences for travelers, and providing efficient and professional solutions for hosts.
