A journey from a Small Idea to a Multinational Company

The idea behind Cloudbeds emerged from the frustration experienced by its co-founders, Richard Castle and Adam Harris while traveling in Brazil. The difficulties they faced in booking local accommodations inspired them to create a platform that would allow any property, regardless of size, type, or location, to successfully manage their lodging business. The co-founders envisioned a modern guest experience that would be available to independent property owners worldwide.

Starting as a "back of the napkin" idea, Cloudbeds has come a long way since its inception. The company has gone through four financing rounds, acquired multiple companies, and driven billions in revenue for tens of thousands of properties. Today, Cloudbeds is a global company with a presence in more than 157 countries and continues to innovate and provide solutions for the hospitality industry.
