Lightbulb Manhatten, NY Property Management/keyholding holiday homes!

Dear all
I don't suppose anyone has any recommendations or suggestions for holiday home property management in Manhatten, NY?
Uk citizen with an owned vacation apartment that is used on occasion by family/friends.
We are looking for a person or company that we can trust to offer a key holding, property management service and organise cleaner for before/after guests and possibly occasional help with adhoc queries. The service required is very minimal and basic but I am struggling to find someone and so thought to ask you for any recommendations or suggestions?
Thank you
Lisa The PA

My guess is it is because AirBnB type operations can be illegal in New York. Something you need to look into.

Is this the rental that your Boss wanted to buy in the US in 2018 without his wife knowing?

No, not an airbnb or rental property . just an apartment he owns and we have lost our current cleaner/key holder due to a move out of state!

Hello,

No - this is another property in NY. As you mentioned my last post was about a property in LA. Which he proceeded to buy, with his wife knowing. Why does everyone think everything I post is dodgy! I can assure I'm just looking for friendly advice from those in the know!

OK, very friendly advice: it's ManhattAn. l suggest you contact the super of the building in which the apartment is located and ask him for a recommendation. There may be an agent who works with other owners in the building.

So sorry Nutmegger! Thank you for replying. Yes I have emailed the Super to see if he has any suggestions for me and I’m also attempting to set up a Nextdoor account for the local area but hit some red tape re UK email address / geo location! Thanks again

If no key / fob is needed to get in to the building, i.e. if there is a doorman or a pin code I would look at a remote lock with a pin code and doorbell cam. That would allow you to monitor who comes and goes and also assign temporary codes to visitors and the cleaners when they come (you can set between certain hours, or generate 1 time codes etc). I use August, but there are lots of brands:
