Host with Us

Why owners choose us...

Owners want their homes to be cared for, as they would themselves, with a team supporting them and their goals for their property.

Owners’ homes are also investments and they need to maximise returns. We understand and appreciate that requirement without compromising quality, and we ensure everyone on the team is dedicated to achieving this.

Owners appreciate our policy of operating a transparent financial structure that is clear, honest and fair.

Owners want their guests to be looked after in a personal and friendly manner while being assured that guests have been screened to match their property as much as is possible! This in turn creates more memorable stays, hence better reviews that reflect and represent the property more accurately.

And, of course, owners want support seven days a week both for their guests and for themselves. There is peace of mind in knowing that we are always available to assist in whatever way we can.

Why guests choose us...

Our guests are looking for homes away from homes that will be pivotal to making memories…

They book because they love our houses and they trust our company and team. They like our eclectic, user-friendly approach – both online and in person.

They like our informative and easy-to-use website which covers all the need-to-know information both about our properties and the surrounding areas. They enjoy browsing through our blogs that cover every imaginable what to do, where to go question for every age and enthusiast.

Then there’s our team who are on hand seven days a week, who know our houses inside out, who live in the New Forest and can be on hand with suggestions, advice or help in any way they can.

We know this time and effort, to care for our guests before, during and even afterwards, makes their stay. Read the reviews to see for yourself.

Great returns that maximise your investment...

Our service is not just about being friendly and helpful (as important as that is), we’re also very efficient at maximising bookings and revenue.

Our marketing focuses on a very targeted approach to find the right guests for your property. We use appropriate third-party holiday websites to reach a larger audience, plus we conduct our own online advertising campaigns and promotions.

Our Social media channels, using experience based posts and stunning imagery, are also successful at converting browsers to bookers. We pride ourselves in a comprehensive enquiry and follow up process; you would think this should be standard in our industry, but it isn’t!

And we make sure that all our enquirers receive regular communications that are interesting and relevant to their stays in the New Forest. We build relationships with guests, inviting them to return by offering them additional benefits if they come back to stay at any of our properties. We also ensure that we cross sell our unique portfolio of properties during their stay.

Support Systems

Our owners don’t ever feel like they are on their own. We provide all the advice and support needed.

Ensure bookings and cancellation policies are easy to understand: written in plain English so everyone is clear about what is involved and expected. Owners also have control of their home’s availability: just login and adjust the calendar when you want to book out dates for yourself, friends and family.

We look after all the booking communications with guests (ensuring essentials such as security deposits are paid before arrival). We will always hand-hold as required. We also know owners value financial transparency and we supply clear and concise monthly statements detailing income and expenditure.

Property Management

Our flexible approach to property management is designed to respond to our owners’ needs and expectations.

We can provide a one-off consultancy to get your property set up for renting or provide a comprehensive on-going management service, taking all the hassle out of letting your home.

You will be allocated your own Property Manager who will be responsible for looking after your home and your guests. They will get to know you and your property so they can take care of it how you would like.

We know detail matters, so we make sure that when it comes to the financials, owners have a full breakdown of the running costs for each home.

Commission Rates & Pricing

We have a base commission rate for our Sales and Marketing package…

In line with most other agencies but the difference is the high level of customer service you receive by being with a small, agile and independent company. You know us, we know you, and we make sure that any specific needs you have are followed through on.

Using the latest market data, our pricing is decided with you and your property in mind. Although we use the latest technology in dynamic pricing, we (humans!) look weekly at your property prices and manage the process carefully and in line with your wishes. We agree set parameters for your property and make our decisions based solely on its performance – we don’t group it in with others and never discount if we haven’t first discussed it with you.

Next Step...ready, steady, go...

If you are interested in knowing more please get in touch. We can talk through your situation, let us know a bit more about your property and your thoughts on what you want out of letting your home and becoming a host with us.

Once we know a little bit more about your property and your requirements, we can then discuss meeting at your home and discussing the ins and outs of renting out your home. We’ll talk you through everything from styling your home, the choice of property management options, the details, a timeline appropriate to your property and, of course, our service and how we support you, step by step.
