Blueground, which calls itself the largest global operator of furnished rentals for 30-plus day stays, announced the acquisition of Nestpick, a global platform for those seeking monthly furnished housing. Through this acquisition, according to the announcement, Blueground will launch the invite-only Partner Network that will consist of a curated set of pre-vetted, third-party furnished apartment providers and their portfolios of units.

The Partner Network will initially add over 18,000 units to Blueground’s established network of apartments around the world and will provide guests with even more options and access to quality, furnished apartments globally.

Nestpick is a digital platform connecting those seeking furnished rentals for 30-plus days globally to thousands of properties around the world. The platform had over 15 million users and generated $80 million in gross booking value in 2022. Blueground will use Nestpick’s technology, integration infrastructure and expertise as a global platform to establish its Partner Network and grow Blueground’s business beyond its core network of managed properties.
Blueground’s Partner Network is launching with 18,000 units with the goal of adding 50,000 units by 2024. The apartments will be located both in already existing Blueground markets as well as markets the company is not yet in, continuing its strategic growth plan.

Currently, Nestpick works with 120 professional operators in the 30-plus day sector with connections to nearly 40,000 listings around the world. Blueground will bring selected partners such as Kasa and Placemakr and their portfolio of listings over to the Partner Network, based on established criteria to meet the needs of current and future Blueground guests. The Partner Network properties will be listed on Blueground‘s website, denoting the partner operator, creating an easier way for travelers to find trusted, high-quality furnished rentals for monthly stays.
