If you want to pay off the ever-increasing private school fees, or a big chuck of the annual house mortgage, renting your home over the summer could be a great solution for you.
Due to Covid-19, international travel is not possible, so local travel to the Peninsula during summer will be more popular than ever. If you have contemplated renting your home during December/January, now is the time to take advantage of these unprecedented circumstances.
At Luxury Peninsula Escapes, we specialise in matching families looking for luxurious accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula with resort style luxury homes like yours.
Renting your home can be very stressful, especially if you want use Airbnb. Many agents also advertise on Airbnb but their software doesn’t allow screening of guests.
We don’t use a live booking system, preferring to use an enquiry based form. Interested parties simply send an enquiry and we follow up with a phone call. It’s the best and most thorough way to screen guests. We also take care of all logistics including council licences, rental contracts, cleaning, linen service, terms and conditions and the security deposit. If there’s a problem, we are your guests first point of call ensuring you can go away knowing your property is well looked after.
Our mission at LPE is to deliver a premium level of service for both owners and guests. We have a thorough selection and screening process to ensure a perfect fit, not only for guests, but property owners too. We are locals, and our primary objective is looking after the locals and the community.
Of equal importance is that guests have a fabulous holiday in your home. We can provide additional services including a personal chef, butler service, welcome hampers, grazing boxes, airport transfers, child minding, massage and facials. We truly want your guest to have an amazing stay and believe our personal approach is key.
As property managers, not rental agents, we personally welcome all guests on arrival with a welcome gift of a grazing box. This personal greeting is paramount, firstly to meet guests and put a face to a name, secondly to reiterate the terms and conditions and council regulations, and thirdly to document, with photos, the condition of your home as we walk the guests through your home. On the tour, we also answer any questions your guests may have, explain the welcome booklet, and advise that we are around the corner if they require assistance. We want your guests to have an amazing time and this starts with exceptional personal service.
If you use Airbnb or a rental agent, you need to have systems in place if you want to go away. If something breaks, or guests have trouble using an item, somebody local may need to pop over and assist. At Luxury Peninsula Escapes, we manage your home, so you can relax and go on your own holiday whilst we take care of everything.
We only have a select few properties on our database to ensure we can deliver the exceptional service we deem so important. Our limited property list also means we play into supply and demand strategies with the view that all our properties book out during peak periods.
Our other point of difference is our digital marketing methods. We use stories, videos and drones to really capture the essence of your home. Still imagery is bland and stagnant whilst movement and fly-outs are what your luxury accommodation holiday house rental demands.
Some holiday rental companies simply advertise your property on AirBnB and Stayz. Why promote in an already saturated market, where you cant screen guests?
Our team specialises in social media and modern digital marketing methods to promote and advertise your home, and stand out from the crowd. Our laser focused approach targets your perfect clientele to find a great match for owners and guests alike.
