From the initial inquiry to the time the guest checks out (and even beyond), we handle all communications with our awesome guests. This includes answering questions about the home, all payments, rental agreements, area questions, and more!
With an ever-growing number of short-term rentals in our area, pricing and marketing the home is key to success. We utilize a pricing software that helps us determine different key factors and analytics of the local market, while listing our properties on several different platforms, including Airbnb, VRBO, Booking.com, and more! We are Superhosts on Airbnb and Premier Partner on VRBO, which helps drive more bookings, and work closely with our SEO company to ensure our content is being distributed in the most effective manner across the web.
All funds flow to our Trust Account, ensuring your rental revenue is kept secure. Our team handles all the revenue from all the different booking platforms, keeping track of it all for you. Just keep the lights on, and we will send you an ACH payment every month! We also charge, withhold, and file local county taxes that are required for STR's in our area.
All cleaning is handled by our in-house cleaning team, who is fully insured and background checked! Not only do we schedule, supervise, inspect, and pay the housekeepers ourselves, we actually cover all the linens in the home! All linens are professionally laundered and changed out with every single reservation. We won’t be doing several loads of laundry at the home, which in turn will help save on those expensive propane and electric bills. Lastly, this extra step allows us to provide our guests with highly sanitized linens, as the industrial washers and dryers reach higher temperatures than standard home units!
We oversee all basic repairs and maintenance of your property. Guests won’t be calling you with HVAC, plumbing, or Wifi issues. We’ll handle it (of course we will stay in contact with you during serious matters). Rest easy knowing you have someone local to tackle these problems.
Our main goal is to provide an all-in-one service to ensure a quality vacation rental experience is delivered to our guests. The vast majority of our homeowner partners are very busy with their day-to-day lives and often live in another area. Working with an experienced local company ensures the small details are always being handled. Lastly, when you work with a LOCAL company, you are helping to create LOCAL jobs, something an online-only vacation rental management company doesn’t do.
