All the rewards of letting. None of the hassle!

There are lots of ways we make letting your property easy and hassle-free, like marketing it for you and managing your bookings and payments.

Today, more and more of our owners go one step further, trusting us to arrange the everyday running of their holiday let for them. This could mean anything from cleaning the property and linen between bookings through to maintaining the entire premises all year round. The great news is that there’s an option that will suit you perfectly, because we can match your needs and budget with our bespoke packages of holiday home cleaning services and property management options.

Better still, there’s more to our managed services than just reducing any work and worry that comes with holiday letting. Our expert teams can give you priceless advice about managing and presenting your property too, helping you to boost your bookings and rental income. We can even save you money, thanks to discounted rates from our trusted suppliers and tradespeople.

Managed services

We understand different owners have different needs, lifestyles and budgets. That’s why we offer different levels of property management services.

Managed Service

We take care of aspects of managing your holiday let. A dedicated manager will take responsibility for managing your property, they’ll do all the planning and organising for you, as well as arranging the cleaning, laundry and caretaking.

Part Managed Service

Don’t need quite such a comprehensive service as our Managed Service, we can arrange specific jobs while you do some yourself.

Managed Service

With our Managed Service, we take care of aspects of managing your holiday let. We’ll start by allocating a friendly dedicated manager: they’ll take responsibility for managing your property as well as marketing it. Once they’ve got to know you and your property, they’ll do all the planning and organising for you, as well as arranging the actual work itself, like cleaning, laundry and caretaking.

On your behalf, we can arrange the following maintenance tasks and holiday home cleaning services:

  • Cleaning for every changeover

  • Everyday repairs and maintenance

  • Key handling from our local offices

Part Managed Service

If you don’t need quite such a comprehensive service as our Managed Service, you can opt for our Part Managed Service instead. In this case, you might do your property’s cleaning and laundry yourself, while we arrange any gardening, DIY or decorating. Just ask us for details.

Why use a managed service?

  • Less work

    Using a trusted team to manage your property saves you the time and effort it takes to do chores like laundry, DIY and gardening as well as any holiday let cleaning. Instead, you can just relax and watch the bookings come in.

  • No hassle

    No homeowner enjoys the job of looking around for reliable tradespeople, particularly in a location they’re not familiar with, and especially in an emergency. Using our managed service puts an end to all that.

  • Lasting peace of mind

    Our maintenance teams operate 7 days of the week and at very short notice – great for knowing you’re always covered in the event of an emergency. You’ll also have contact with someone who really knows your property inside out.

  • Bigger income

    A property that’s cleaned and maintained using professional holiday home cleaning services is likely to get great reviews, and that helps attract more bookings. On top of that, those properties with the best reviews command the highest rental charges.

Welcome packs

A great first impression is really important for guests arriving at your property, because it can help set the mood for their entire stay. Along with a spotlessly clean property, providing a simple welcome pack really helps to create that comforting ‘home from home’ feeling.

In the pack, you might want to include essential refreshments like tea, coffee, milk and some biscuits. Tourist information about the local area is also a good idea, along with some clear and friendly rules and instructions for the property. Don’t forget to include handbooks for its appliances too. To really make an impression, you could even leave a bottle of wine.

Our experts can give you more advice about welcome packs and, with our managed service, we can assemble them on your behalf for every changeover. That’s one more job off your list!
