Back in 1998, Emma Vidler launched Keylet from her bedroom in her University accommodation after realising there was a huge gap in the market for student lettings. Since then, Emma has excelled the company to where it is today and the company currently represent over £200 Million worth of Real Estate across Cardiff, The Vale and Penarth. Not one to shy away from change, Emma has adapted the business in-line with the climate and diversified to create Keylet Student, Keylet Executive and Key Executive Sales all under the 'Keylet' umbrella.
Through Emma's 23 year property journey, Emma has assisted with a large number of large developments within Cardiff including Richmond Square and Empire House, which was home to the first £1m apartment to be sold in Cardiff Bay, sold through Keylet.
Emma is also the proud owner and developer of the Cwrt Yr Ala Estate which sits in the beautiful location of Michaelston-Le-Pit in the heart of Dinas Powys. The Estate is home to the main house, three luxury barn conversions, a gorgeous boat house and a beautiful lake house, all nestled amongst 50 acres of parkland and lakes. Serving as short term and holiday lets, these luxurious properties boast modern living, high- end finishing touches and the bonus of outside entertainment including hot tubs, a swimming pool and a tennis court.

These properties will be luxury three bed abodes finished to the highest standard and will include the latest appliances and technology and will showcase the latest ground source heating innovation.
