When it comes to vacation rentals, the difference between a good stay and a great one often lies in the details. At RatherBeProperties, we pride ourselves on creating memorable experiences for our guests, avoiding common pitfalls that can detract from a vacation. Here’s what we do differently and why booking directly with us not only saves you money but ensures a smoother, more enjoyable stay.

1. Overbooking

Many property managers rely on multiple platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, Expedia, Google Vacations, and Booking.com, which can lead to overbooking. At RatherBeProperties, we meticulously manage our bookings to ensure that every guest’s reservation is honored without hassle. By booking directly with us, guests are guaranteed that their chosen home will be waiting for them upon arrival, no surprises or last-minute scrambles.

2. Hidden Fees

It’s not uncommon for guests to find unexpected fees tacked onto their bill. Whether it’s for extra guests, early check-ins, or miscellaneous services, these fees can sour an experience. We believe in transparent pricing. What you see is what you get. No hidden fees, no surprises. Plus, booking directly with us means you avoid the service charges often imposed by third-party booking sites.

3. Inflexible Check-In/Out Times

Travel doesn’t always stick to a strict schedule, and we get that. Unlike other properties that might adhere rigidly to check-in and check-out times, we offer flexible options to accommodate our guests’ needs. This is subject to availability, of course, but we always strive to meet our guests halfway to ensure their convenience.

4. Lack of Personal Touch

While digital convenience is key, personal interaction remains invaluable. We ensure that every guest of RatherBeProperties feels welcomed and cared for. From personalized travel tips to immediate assistance with any issues, our team is just a call or message away. This personalized service is often lost when booking through large vacation rental platforms.

5. Neglected Maintenance

Nothing ruins a stay like arriving to find maintenance issues. We regularly inspect and maintain all properties to ensure everything is in working order. This proactive approach prevents the common pitfall of reactive maintenance, which can disrupt a vacation.

6. Overly Strict Cancellation Policies

Understanding that plans can change, we maintain fair and reasonable cancellation policies. Guests who book directly with us enjoy more lenient terms compared to those booking through third-party sites, offering peace of mind when travel uncertainties arise.

Save When You Book Direct

Apart from ensuring a high-quality stay, booking directly with RatherBeProperties also means significant savings. Avoiding third-party fees can reduce your total cost by a noticeable margin.

At RatherBeProperties, we are committed to providing a stress-free and enjoyable rental experience. Our direct booking process not only saves you money but aligns perfectly with our core promise: making your vacation as enjoyable and seamless as possible.
