The Benefits of a Vacation Rental Manager

In a world with Airbnb and Vrbo, everyone can rent out their home.

It’s a great way to earn money back on your investment, and one we wholeheartedly support! But not every Vrbo or Airbnb experience is created equal.

Airbnb calls homeowners on their site “hosts,” and so much of what makes a vacation rental great is the host, or in our case, the manager. Many homeowners have full-time jobs and may even live far from from their rental; too far to keep an eye on the property or be helpful to guests. Vacation rental managers can keep your property and your guests happy with each reservation.

Here are the top 5 reasons to use a manager for your rental property!

1. It’s Our Job 

As vacation rental managers, it’s our full-time, 24/7 job to take care of these properties and those in them! We have the time, resources and experience to know what each house needs.

2. Get What You Expect 

This goes for our owners and our guests. Our partnership with our homeowners is straightforward. It’s not our goal to nickel and dime anyone. It is our goal to go above and beyond! We’re here to work with you to make your property an oasis for those in it.

The same goes for our guests. We want their trip to be straightforward and easy. We accomplish that with standards they can count on. They can expect fair pricing, a pristine cleaning, timely responses from us, and for their time in your home to be everything they hoped for–and more!

3. Customer Service 

We’re here for guests. If that means setting up reservations, bringing extra supplies, answering questions around the clock, or providing great recommendations for the area, we’re on it! PS: We’re here for you too. Call anytime; we want to talk about anything on your mind.

4. Maintenance 

We don’t want anything to go wrong during a reservation, and neither do you–or the guests! We do all we can to handle problems ourselves at no cost. If we need to call in reinforcements, we will! We can handle the logistics of maintenance work and the reservation schedule to keep intrusions on guests to a minimum and get issues resolved quickly.

5. Aaron and Lauren

Our greatest resource to you and the guests is us! We’re in your property after each check out. Naturally, we check for things like wear and tear or damages. We also listen to guest feedback and make necessary changes. We check on the cleaning to make sure nothing was overlooked. And finally, we’re there to think ahead. We plan not only for the next reservation, but reservations a year from now. We try to detect things that may become an issue in the future. And we also think of ways to make the house better whether those are changes you can make to the home, or changes we can make in our services.
