Why List with Us?
SeaStay offers a unique combination of years of local vacation home ownership experience with a suite of tools that will ensure your home stays full, while providing you complete visibility to the process.
Sharing Our Expertise
At SeaStay, we want to share the knowledge we have gained over 35+ years of investment consulting, real estate sales and vacation rental experience to ensure that our owners have a great, value-added experience with their vacation home and that guests have that same experience while staying in your home. We believe the best way to help create that experience is to present you with the right plan, upfront, to make your home a great one and then handle things like permits, housekeeping and maintenance, getting exposure for your home, guest reservations and tracking, and customer service. With local ownership who has lived in the area since birth and works in the real estate industry, you will have access to information about the area that will be valuable to the management of your home.
Creating a Quality Guest Experience
The old saying that “you never get a second chance to make a first impression” could not be truer than it is with vacation rentals. Guests staying in a vacation home are looking for the experience of feeling that vacation vibe while having all the comforts of their own home. As part of our upfront planning, we will make recommendations on the look of your home, how it functions, what areas you should highlight, and what amenities people want while on vacation. This will not only help the guest experience but also your own, when you are ready to personally visit the home.
Taking Care of Your Home
Housekeeping is a critical component for a rental home. We work hard to present a home that feels comfortable to your guests, and we work just as hard to make sure that our housekeeping keeps it looking that way. We require each housekeeper to follow a strict checklist of things to do to keep your home looking great, and we have a standard for how it should be done. Our housekeeping is monitored by an inspection process to keep it running the way it should. We constantly monitor our housekeeping staff to make sure we have people that share our passion for presenting a clean home to our guests.
SeaStay has a reliable network of local maintenance providers to keep your home operating properly. We have contractors who can handle things like simple repairs, electricity, pools and hot tubs, appliances, heating and air, roofing, plumbing, carpentry, installation and building contract needs. Our network of contractors charge reasonable rates that are consistent with the area and work to be performed. Some work may require permits depending on the type of work and location of your home. We will work with the various contractors to make sure regulations are followed.
The key to success is communicating and being responsive. We will be available to you and your guests to make sure that any questions, concerns or issues are quickly addressed. This formula has served us well in our previous experiences, and it is a cornerstone of our business model. We do all of this while keeping you in the know with reporting and calendar access and making sure that you get to personally enjoy your vacation home.
Branding and Exposure for Your Home
At SeaStay, we believe in providing a quality property that draws quality rates that guests are comfortable paying because of the value they are receiving. We also want to make sure that we are maximizing your potential return on investment. We will not only make suggestions about ways to improve your home, but we will also demonstrate how that correlates to improved occupancy and higher rates.
We also want to make your home as visible to potential renters as possible. We accomplish that by having a high-quality website, working with various vacation rental partner sites like VRBO and Airbnb, and leveraging multiple social media outlets at targeted times. SeaStay also keeps up with local events and relevant articles that would be of interest to potential renters and makes those available through blog posts on both our website and social media.
Simplified Fee Structure
We provide a lot of services and value to our owners, and we do so using a simple fee structure. We don’t want you to worry about being nickel and dimed for every service we provide, so we created a simple and competitive fee structure to take the hassle and confusion out of the property management process.
