I live in Pacific Palisades and I manage beautiful fully furnished homes in Pacific Palisades for short term rentals.  I list on three vacation rental sites, Airbnb, Trip Advisor and VRBO and post on other sites for month and longer bookings.   The properties are booked 90% of the time, receive 5 star reviews and make my owners much more profit than renting unfurnished to full time tenants.

I am a superhost on Airbnb, I have 100% response rate on Trip Advisor and VRBO.

Unlike management companies I do not accept all booking inquiries.  I vet people thoroughly prior to accepting a booking to ensure that there are no parties and people take care of the properties.

My keys to running a successful vacation management property are:

  • Have top notch photos and clear inviting listings
  • Answer all inquiries within the hour.
  • Vet potential guests to ensure house is taken care of.
  • Check and adjust prices daily to ensure a high number of inquiries.
  • Communicate about pre-arrival instructions.
  • Have a comprehensive guide in the house of rules and notes on the house.  As well as local restaurants, grocery stores, points of interest, etc.
  • Check in with the guests by text and make sure they are happy.
  • Answer all questions and concerns from guests right away.
  • Get personal feedback from the guests of any suggested improvements.
  • Provide excellent service and get 5 star reviews.

I am looking to add properties to my roster.   And I can do temporary management to give you a break.  This is the personal touch and not a big management company.   Please feel to contact me for more information and to set up a meeting.
