Lyme Bay Holidays are teaming up with Dream Cottages to share their expertise in a brand-new Holiday Let Insights...
When choosing to buy a holiday let, you might be wondering where to start with holiday let management. Some owners choose to run and manage their holiday let on their own. For others, the ease of off-loading this responsibility is high on their priority list.
At Lyme Bay Holidays, we take the stress away from holiday letting your property. Combined with our local team of property managers, we offer different holiday let management.
Read on for our guide to holiday let management options for your Dorset or Devon holiday home.
You may be thinking to manage your holiday let yourself. This is a great option if you live close to the property, or you already have an existing housekeeper/caretaker. Managing the laundry, maintenance and cleaning will be your key responsibility however, this could work out financially better for you with a larger return in investment.
Bear in mind also, you’ll need to be available for check-in days to carry out the property changeover. This could tie you down in the long run making it difficult to plan your own time off and holidays.
If you decide owner managed is how you’d like to run your holiday let, you can still hugely benefit of Lyme Bay Holiday’s full booking and marketing facility.
If you’re looking for a happy medium, the partially managed service option is a great option if you’d like the laundry taken care of for your holiday let. With this option, you can sit back take control of your bookings calendar and leave the changeovers to our expert housekeeping team.
Furthermore, you’ll be able to benefit from the Lyme Bay Holidays full booking and marketing services. However, make sure you factor in property maintenance checks throughout the year to ensure your property is in tip top condition for your guests.
The fully managed service is perfect if you’re an owner who lives abroad or away from your property. Perhaps you’d like to minimise the stress of fully managing the property yourself, we can absolutely take care of this for you.
At Lyme Bay Holidays you will be assigned a property manager who will be your contact for any queries and issues. We’ll keep you up to date and recommendations for your property during the peak season through any feedback that arises.
You’ll also have changeover management so you can be assured your property is cleaned to our standard.
With over 300 properties across Dorset and East Devon, Lyme Bay Holidays would love to welcome your property to our portfolio. As part of the Sykes Holiday Cottages Family, we have both local and national opportunities for your property.
