The local couple delivering modern holiday-let management services in the region. 

When Houst launched in Canterbury, we knew we wanted to bring something special to the area. Enter Maria del Valle and Gustavo, our dynamic duo with a diverse set of skills that perfectly complement each other. Together, they are set to elevate the guest experience in Canterbury to new heights!

Maria, with her rich background in architectural technology and a keen eye for detail, brings over a decade of experience in the construction industry. Maria's skills go beyond architecture. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to establish her own company, honing her management skills and building strong relationships with her clients. In 2019, Maria made the move to Canterbury, falling in love with the region's architectural beauty and rich cultural history. Her travels in Kent, combined with her passion for hospitality, made her the perfect fit for Houst, where she is eager to share her knowledge and offer exceptional service to guests.

Gustavo's journey is equally fascinating. With a decade of experience in chemical production and water treatment, he brings a unique perspective to the table. His early years were spent in the production department of a family-owned chemical company, eventually transitioning into customer service and retail sales. But it was his venture into the hospitality industry and passion for wine that truly set him apart. After graduating as a winemaker in 2019, Gustavo organised wine tasting events and even worked for a major wine company in California. 

Together, Maria and Gustavo are the perfect team to bring a unique and exceptional guest experience to Canterbury. Their diverse skills, combined with their shared passion for hospitality, make them the ideal partners for Houst in this exciting new venture. We can't wait for you to meet them and experience the magic they bring to Houst Canterbury!
