Choosing A Vacation Rental Manager

In St Lucia and around the world, more and more individuals are looking for ways to increase income and increase return on investment (ROI).

So you found the perfect property which can be used for vacation rental and at the same time serve as a second home in the event the property is not rented. After all, the property is in a touristic area, location is perfect as it is sunny at least 80- 90% of the year, 10 minutes to a nearby beach, pool and easy access to shops. But now you have to figure out how can you increase your ROI. You have approached a few vacation rental companies and a management fee could run from 10 to 25% depending on the experience and length of time in the business for the vacation rental company or manager.

You move swiftly in purchasing the property as you have located the ideal vacation rental company or manager. You purchase new furniture, do some painting, new towels, sheets, kitchen appliances, all the items you would require if you were on holiday in your new investment project. After all you have been to a few vacation rentals and found furniture need updating, kitchen lacking utensils, pool is green and so on.

Sign a management contract, wave goodbye to your property and after all wait for that monthly check.
Two to three months go by your manager confirms no rentals for your property. Well it’s only two to three months so these things take a while you thought. In the fifth month your place is rented and you just knew things would get going sooner or later. The next rental is in month twelve for four months. Great!

At the end of the third month you are told the client is refusing to pay for his stay in the fourth month. While the manager tries to get the tenant out by force, an eviction, very little communication is relayed between you and the manager. One email takes weeks to get answered. Then you are told the tenant was forced to leave but the property is trashed! Furniture needs replacing, food is everywhere, graffiti on your walls and soiled mattresses.

Choosing the right vacation rental manager is very important. Find out how long they have been in business. Usually a seasoned vacation rental company would have seen at least many situations therefore knowing how to protect your investment. Vacation rentals are widely considered as short term rental and though the laws may vary from country to country, the practical method in such situation is to make sure all the monies are paid upfront. Depending on the value of your property, a deposit will be taken from the tenants and refunded once the property is thoroughly checked after their departure. An experienced manager will guide you from start to finish in getting the property ready for rentals and stress that irreplaceable items should be locked away and taken out while you, the owner is residing in the property. Do research, ask questions during the process, is just another way to try to get loose ends covered.

St Lucia VRBO

Vacation rentals by owner are becoming a big attraction to travelers who want to experience travel in a different way.  The era where hotel and motel accommodation were the only choices are so yesterday. This growing travel choice has caused websites like homeaway, VRBO (vacation rentals by owner) and similar sites to increase their marketing budget to reach travelers who are more independent and at the same time assist home owners with the increase in revenue for their properties. VRBO advertises a $50,000 per year in revenue for vacation rental owners. The majority of St Lucia VRBO’S and other areas are mainly absentee owners. This means that advertising their properties may be one thing but the actual management of guests while owners are absent is another. The home owner is often faced with relying on on-site staff, pool man or housekeeper to attend to guests needs.

St Lucia VRBO is ideal for the Caribbean savvy traveler. The Caribbean has long been known to be somewhat a place for the wealthy. St Lucia VRBO’s provide a more affordable accommodation for travelers who want to explore the island on a budget. Vacation rentals in St Lucia offer full kitchen areas, over-sized bedrooms, large walk-ways and patio space, detailed pools and real open floor plans of Caribbean living. Additional services which can be requested are personal chef, exciting excursions and personal concierge service.

Today the concept clearly works, forcing more and more VRBO on the market in nearly every country. Giving renter direct contact with owners, is ideal in todays ever changing holiday market. But there may be a gray area here where there is no medium between renter and owner for the protection of either. Many management companies offer that added comfort, piece of mind in the event of any miss happenings. Another recommendation to the renter who decides to go this route is to accept the travel insurance option that  may of these sites provide. Normally this is a small fee which protects against theft, damages or unseen circumstances.

But travelers are becoming independent in a way sites like Homeaway understands. The traveler who loves the secluded villa, with an appetite for independence and a quest to explore.

St. Lucia: A Rare Caribbean Gem

St Lucia Travel

Traveling to St. Lucia is a must for any Caribbean traveler. St Lucia is one of the most beautiful places you’ve ever seen. Located in the eastern Caribbean, the island’s nation covers 238.23 square miles. Its population of 174,000 is an intriguing mix of Africans, East Indians, French, British, Caribs and various admixtures. But it’s the climate and stunning natural beauty which draws visitors to the island. A visit to this island is part of only the best Caribbean vacation packages.

The island was christened St. Lucia in 1660 when the French signed a treaty with the native Carib people. It has switched between French and British control several times since then and the local culture reflects it. The inhabitants of the island speak both French and English. Saint Lucia is a volcanic island and one of the most mountainous of the Caribbean islands. Dormant twin volcanos called the Pitons are the island’s most striking feature. Situated between the towns of Soufriere and Choiseul, the verdant Pitons rise majestically out of the turquoise Caribbean Sea over 2,000 feet into the bright blue skies on St. Lucia’s west coast. Saint Lucia is also one of the few islands in the world that boasts a drive-in volcano.

Saint Lucia’s tropical climate is moderated by northeast trade winds. Its numerous secluded, pristine beaches, friendly, peaceful, population and gorgeous fragrant gardens and exotic dishes make St Lucia travel a must for those in the know. The perfect way to spend your St. Lucia vacation is ensconced with your loved ones at Blue Moon Villa’s 7000 square feet, 4 bedroom villa complete with a pool and an incredible view of the lush forests, gently swaying blue Caribbean Sea, colorful gardens and brilliant sunshine.
