Our business runs as a holiday home letting company for properties in the South Kent Coast, mainly in and around Whitstable Kent and has been built up over the last 18 Months, part time.
At present we manage 10 properties with a nice selection of Apartments, Holiday Cottages, Holiday Homes and Bungalows. Each property is located very close to the seafront and beach in Whitstable Kent.
The properties have been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and inspected by ourself's. Nearly all the holiday lets are offered for a minimum of one week, maximising profits.
HOW IT WORKS............
We get clients to list there Holiday Homes with us on a fully managed service fee at 15% per booking + £50 per booking for cleaning and laundry.
An agreement is signed of a weekly price rate they will be happy with and of course allow our margins, then we arrange photos (Done on my iPhone) and we list there property on places like TripAdvisor, Holiday lettings, Airbnb as agents.
Once a booking is placed on these portals we get a text to say someone has booked, we allow the holiday portals to take payments and deposits and charge booking fees to the customer direct (You could do this yourself directly to make more profit,but i wanted it easy) Template emails are automatically sent to the holiday makers with key codes and directions once they pay in full.
The day a guest arrives in any one of the holiday homes, we get full payment direct into our bank account, we minus our 15% + £50 and pay the rest to our client.. SIMPLE :) Once the holiday makers have left we have a cleaner let herself in and clean and change sheets ready for next guest. (She has been checked and is very hard working and used to clean all 10 homes, she will stay on if needed)
We have our unique wordpress holiday website that we list all property's onto, so our clients and public can see which dates have been booked. (you could take booking from this site to make more profit.)
This can be run from anywhere with a internet connection, but also suite another letting agency to add to there portfolio.
