Project Description

  • the Jane was born of a void in the hospitality industry. Do I book a hotel room for all the amenities I need, or do I book a rental and forgo the service I need? Why choose? Luxury is having what you need, when you need it, preferably in grand style. With the Jane, you can have it all.
  • We are fusing new rental inventory with hotel-style amenities and concierge services, elevating product quality with more stringent host selection processes, greater sustainability and with privacy/security a top priority. The vacation rental market currently represents 100B annually, and growing, and with the global in-destination activities industry poised to hit $183 billion by 2020, in-destination activities represent an opportunity for the Jane to connect guests to unique experiences and drive incremental revenue.
  • Funds raised here will allow us to build out 3-5 properties that will be available within 6 weeks of our funding goal being met. We are focused on top tier real estate within the hottest destination markets, for both business and leisure, and ensuring that all of the Jane technology, amenities and design standards are met with ease. Our first 5 markets include:
    • Charleston, SC
    • San Francisco
    • New York City
    • Nashville 
    • Austin
  • Our business model is based on quality vs. quantity. To ensure that a visit with the Jane feels as though you are our first guest, we have built our success on the rich experience of the guest rather than heads in beds. This means that we'd prefer to have 3-4 reservations per month than every night booked. Our rates are comparable to luxury hotels, or private homes found via Luxury Retreats or AirbnbLUXE. We also take care to take care of you; from car service to stocked beverages + snacks, gourmet coffee bars and luxury linens, we want you to feel pampered and respected at every turn.
  • The team at the Jane are parents of kids of all ages, with a deep understanding of what parents need in a quality vacation, as well as designers. We're also professionals, with more than 50 years of hospitality experience among us. We have traveled the world and worked in some crazy places. When curating what the Jane would offer, we took every experience, all that we love and every frustration of home, and home-away-from-home, into consideration. Making your experience of living, and traveling, not just easier, but richer, is our mission.

The Project FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Are we affiliated with other property management companies? No. We use Airbnb Plus and Airbnb LUXE as our exclusive booking tool. We love the Airbnb platform for its inclusive protections of both the user and the host, as well as their firsthand, at the table, pro-active work to bring the private rental market greater options and exposure.
  • What is our re-book policy? For our contributors here at IFW, we are offering a one-time rebook should the need arise, based on availability, with no penalty. We know life happens, and we want to be responsive to those needs when they arise. We will also work pro-actively to rebook any reservation that is impeded by acts of God or Mother Earth, or other unavoidable disruption to an upcoming reservation.
  • Do we allow pets? Because our properties are top tier, we work on a case by case basis in each market to address the needs of your furbabes.
  • All of our properties are strictly smoke-free, and offer humidifiers and air purifiers.
  • Will the contributor reservations be limited to the initial 5 markets? No ma'am! As we grow in the next few years, so do your options. We are planning to add Rocky Mountain destinations, island hopping through the Caribbean and Hawaii, and intend to go abroad in 2020. As a contributor you'll be kept abreast of all our exciting additions, market launches, new partnerships and much more!
