I do exactly the same - about 30 clients on WPEngine. In fact, at this point I won't take on a web design/dev/maintenance client unless they're on WPEngine (I'll migrate them for free to make that happen). I now set up new clients on a transferable install so when their site goes live I transfer hosting to them and they own the hosting account - but I still have access to it in my main account. That takes care of the issue @Tony Wang asked about while still keeping everything in one place for easy access for me.I manage sites for 25 or so clients. I host all of them at WPEngine. Not cheap, but very, very, very reliable and helpful.
I hate to have to manage my vendors, making sure that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing, making sure that they aren't down, etc.
For me, with vendors like hosting providers, I want them to be like dialtone (back in the landline days). What do I mean by that? Well, you never had to manage dialtone. You never had to wonder if it was working. You never had to call the phone company to check on them. It. Just. Worked.
WPEngine has a lot of other virtues too, besides reliability.
