An accidental beginning…

Our story begins with Ken and Vin sitting around a spare bedroom wondering if there was a way to earn some extra income. After taking the plunge and listing our very own studio on Airbnb, we found the secret recipe to successful homestays – warm Malaysian hospitality delivered in an organized and consistent manner. Within a short span of 2 months, we doubled our studio’s yield potential.

That got us thinking. There were many beautiful units in Malaysia with the same potential, and all they needed was the same tender loving care that we had poured into our studio. Thus, Plush Services was born. We expanded rapidly mainly through word of mouth and recommendations from other property owners, and currently operate around 100 units in Kuala Lumpur.

While we are now a much bigger team (37 people, and counting!), our focus on the founding principles of Plush remains constant. We strive to provide home owners with an end-to-end solution to professionally-managed homestay, with the same emphasis on warm Superhost hospitality, quick attention to guests’ needs and organized management. If you’re a property investor, developer or a homeowner considering managed short-term rentals, let us take care of everything for you so you can just sit back, relax and wait for the rental yields to come!

Meet Our Founders

The co-founder with a passion for business development that is deeply embedded in his DNA. In addition to overseeing day-to-day operations, Ken focuses on the company’s growth strategy and works closely with property owners and developers to expand our portfolio. Prior to founding Plush Services, Ken was a Project Manager in Novo Nordisk, with global project management experience. When he isn’t busy thinking about properties, you would likely find him on a boat with a fishing rod.
