Guide to letting

Year after year our success comes from our ability to choose properties we know offer the perfect mix of comfort and facilities, great location and competitive pricing. To help you feel comfortable making a decision to let – and to help maximise your rental income if you go ahead – we've covered a few of the basics below.

Creating the right first impression

Customers say that a welcoming atmosphere is crucial when they arrive, and that begins with clear directions and a clean, presentable property. It's also important to choose décor and furnishings that complement the property and each other, and always try to provide a personal welcome with a modest welcome gift like a bottle of wine. Don't forget to allow for any time it might take you to maintain and manage your property, or you can simply sign up for one of our optional Property Management services outlined on this website.

What facilities does my property need to offer?

Your Regional Manager is the perfect person to advise you on this, especially as different properties have different facilities and features. One thing you really must provide is linen and towels, while car parking, tidy gardens and good garden furniture are all important to holidaymakers.

How will you help me get the best price for letting my property?

Value for money is a huge factor in the popularity of our holidays so we're committed to offering our customers a good deal without hidden extras. At the same time, we think rental charges should always fairly reflect a property's quality, and we continually optimise financial returns for our owners. Our pricing specialists will carefully calculate the charges most likely to maximise your rental income, taking a strategic, year-round approach that allows for seasonal peaks and troughs.

And what if my property is one of a group?

As well as individual properties we also specialise in marketing small, select collections of them, usually featuring extra amenities like pools or leisure facilities. Our Regional Manager will happily provide information and answer any questions about this.
