What We Do

If you’re like us, expanding our real estate portfolio short-term rentals was a
family decision. One born from a desire to create financial wealth for our family and to showcase our gifts & talents to others.

Hospitality drives our decisions. The guest may not always be right, but while they’re in our space, it’s our responsibility to make sure they are safe and treated like the 5-star guests they are. Our business is guided by our overarching family values:

How Can We Help?

We deeply understand as a vacation rental owner the desire to want to jump into this industry with both feet, excited to create your own short-term rental business, and bring memorable experiences to your guests. We also see the tight barrier of entry for successful vacation-rental property owners due to the massive competition in many of the premier vacation rental destinations across the world.

How do you set yourself apart, deliver 5-star service to your guests, stay on top of the consistent changes in the industry by the OTAs – like AirBNB and VRBO – and STILL manage to turn a profit?

The industry is rapidly growing, and that’s why you want to stay focused on your money-maker, which is acquiring great vacation rentals and growing your portfolio, and allow us to professionally manage your vacation rental portfolio. Whether you’re acquiring your first property, or have a substantial portfolio, we have built a model that works!

Why Should You Consider Us?

Frequently Asked Questions

We work with nationwide businesses, airports and hospitals to help house their professional employees, cabin crews and doctors, who need accommodation in the area.

They cannot commit to long ASTs as they may be in the area for only a short period of time (a few days up to 6 months). That’s where we come in and provide accommodation on a short term basis to them while ensuring we meet our obligations to you as our landlord or client.

We fill gaps by letting the property to well vetted guests who need accommodation while visiting the area for leisure and to families who need accommodation due to work being carried out on their main residence (often insurance companies are funding the stays).

Like any tenant things can get damaged, however unlike a regular tenant, we repair and maintain the property whenever an issue occurs. Our guests have to provide ID, sign terms and conditions and we take a security deposit every stay.

If something gets damaged we charge it directly to the guest out of the security deposit and inform their employer (our guests do not want to upset their employer). We are fully insured with legal indemnity, contents and public liability insurance if the worst should happen.

A key difference with us, is that we have guests, not tenants so they have no right to occupy. If there is a problem – we can remove them. Overall, the property has to stay in hotel standard condition or we could not operate as a business so you can rest assured the property will be looked after – that’s what makes us the perfect tenants as your needs and ours are aligned!

Contact us now – we get back to everyone and there are no silly questions – we are happy to answer anything and show you our systems. An analysis of your property takes only a few days.
