Our family have been renting, marketing and managing vacation rentals in North America for many years. In this time we have come to understand and confront all the challenges that such a business can present. Vacation rentals have been an integral part of our lives and we have met so many wonderful people. It has become very apparent however that corporate investment on a significant scale is shaving the personal edges of this business, and monetizing to the detriment of vacation rental Guests. In 2014, after discussion with many experienced Managers, we identified that through collaboration (and hard work) we would be able to create a more unique experience and a company run by industry experts, not shareholders.
The vacation rental business has changed dramatically with a need to learn new skill sets, invest in new technologies, and adapt to Guests millennial requirements. The very nature of the industry means that there are hundreds of popular destinations, and literally thousands of North American holiday homes; small to expansive, ski chalets to waterfront cabins, countryside & city. Guests need to be reassured that the people they speak to and book with are reliable, knowledgeable, friendly, and provide a great service. Managers and Owners need to know that they are represented confidently online with no mediated Guest conversation, or monetary loss through over-zealous "marketplaces".
We live in a "sharing" world and the forces of technology accelerate the increase of data and its transmission. Working across continents is now the norm, bringing new skills, new and established brands, and creative new ideas. Cultures and languages remain diverse and local knowledge is imperative for managing vacation rentals and best understanding Guest expectations. We have created a global network of partners who are working together to bring skills sets, technologies, experience and Guests to North America.
