It’s up to the owner to decide how much they will invest to start up their business successfully.
By looking at my statistics the owner can decide which price bracket is suitable for his property.
Please bear in mind the style of the property, the quality of the property, sea view or not, the distance to the beach, how many beds, furnishings, accessories, and appliances etc. These are the deciding factors for choosing the right rental price.
The price that is proposed to the client must be in accordance with the quality of the property: nowadays with internet there is no possibility to lie to the clients!
The owner must personally supervise the cleaning service, and be present to welcome his guests. If it’s not possible for the owner to be present he should find someone that he trusts to stand in for him, not only in this phase, but also for assisting guests during their stay. Holiday homes are usually rented for a week, with check in and check out on Saturday.
Your property should be comfortable, charming, and sparkling clean, and in order.
It should be advertised for what it is, with great photos that respect the reality as not to create false expectations: honesty is the winning card in client relationship!
IMPORTANT: I am only willing to work with owners who really take to heart the welcoming of their guests.
Owners that are cordial e discreet and will go the extra to provide all that is needed for their guests.
Everything must be efficient and functional: water heaters, air conditioners, TV’s, Wi-Fi, Satellite Receivers etc.
The utensils should be plentiful and looked after constantly so nothing is missing (dishes, glasses, eating utensils, bed and bath linens etc.)
Your relationship with guests should be based on kindness. This kindness will help you out when any inconveniences might pop up during their stay!
I reserve the right to decide NOT to take on or manage properties whose owners are not in line with my welcoming philosophy.
Every year hundreds of tourists worldwide ask my advice on available accommodations: many are loyal clients that contact me every year because they were pleased with the property that I manage and now they trust me, my work and my advice.
Since my agency’s reputation is important to me, I don’t want it to be ruined by the poor management of a owner!
