With over 25 years managerial experience in the local holiday letting industry – both family and large corporate owned – we are all too aware of the pitfalls and frustrations of either letting independently or using a local/national letting agency.
Managing your own bookings is time consuming, often inconvenient and relies heavily on having a good local caretaker/cleaner who is prepared to attend to your guests and take appropriate action at the drop of a hat. There is huge local competition and professional marketing with an appealing description and photography is vital too.
Using an agency has its costs, frustrations and inflexibilities, often with call centres many miles away taking bookings and operating with a ‘one size fits all’ broad brush approach.
Airbnb is growing at an incredible rate with over 5 million listings in 191 countries – over 200,000 in the UK alone.
With booking levels increasing rapidly in the past two years, to take advantage of the ‘boom’, agencies are now beginning to list properties on Airbnb themselves!
Using Airbnb as the primary booking platform and known as a ‘co host’, we are able to offer an end to end holiday letting management solution using our extensive knowledge, expertise and valuable local connections. Ensuring the best possible service along with the best possible return on investment, whilst you remain free to use your holiday home whenever it suits you.
Covering the stunning South Hams coastline – from Dartmouth to Newton Ferrers – we will know your property and the locality intimately.
