Rental return & exposure

The commission each website charges for the listing is covered within our management fee.
We are experts on presenting your property to stand out from the rest, from our dynamic seasonal pricing, to professional photo shoot, your property will look its best to any potential holiday maker.
Peace of mind
As mentioned earlier, a common concern is damage/theft. On top of our extensive booking conditions and house rules, we take a large refundable damage deposit from every booking. This is for us to use if any of the booking conditions are not adhered to, including penalties for bad behaviour. As a further measure , for a small price we insist the owner selects one of our affiliates insurance policies, which further covers for any mis-haps that may happen during a stay.
We can suggest specialty short-term letting insurance policies year round, or just a few weeks away. Either way, you can sleep easy at night knowing that there are multiple levels of contingencies in place for your property.
