With many years of “Real World” experience managing luxury vacation rental properties, 30A Escapes has set the bar extremely high. Other companies attempt to copy our business model but they just don’t quite get it. Being the top boutique management firm on 30A isn’t about bedrooms and bathrooms.
We sell the “Luxury 30A Vacation Experience” and we accomplish this by having real relationships with our rental guests. Our team members answer every call and email personally to engage rental prospects in order to develop an intimate level of service unsurpassed on 30A. In turn, our rental guests respect and care for the properties as they would their own home.
The majority of our competitors look for ways to automate “E-Bookings” without ever engaging the prospective guest personally. How would they even know who is coming into your home without having a conversation prior to accepting a booking? Someone on the other end of a computer having a valid credit card should not be the only requirement to be guaranteed a booking in a multi-million dollar property.
We have personal experience owning vacation rental properties which gives us a level of expertise and perspective no other company can provide. We act and think like owners. We keep revenues high and expenses low while providing elite service.
We rent to professionals willing to pay top dollar for our luxury vacation properties. We’ll never waiver from our boutique level of homes to simply add a new property. 30A Escapes is selective regarding the properties we manage and the owners we work with. The relationship with our homeowners is a win-win “Partnership”. Our success in the boutique marketplace allows us to make wise decisions to protect the value of our “Escapes” Brand.
I chose 30A Escapes hoping to get a more responsive property management team. Not only has 30A Escapes been extremely responsive to all my requests, they are always proactive with both managing my property and managing my bookings. Most important is the very personal nature of the service Brenden and his team provide for both my Rosemary Beach property and my Inlet Beach property. In addition, I appreciate the technology platform used by 30A Escapes as I can see current and future bookings, origination of the bookings, financial matters, etc. And when my family and friends request use of the place, 30A Escapes continues to be helpful and friendly to my guests. I have had a great experience with 30A Escapes from both a management and a financial perspective over the past 3 years which is why I chose to place my newest investment in Inlet Beach as well. They make owning a beach property seamless so I can just focus on enjoying the property when I visit while maximizing the investment return when I'm not using the property. I cannot recommend 30A Escapes more strongly.Keith R - At Last Cottage
Our focus lies in three primary areas:
As a professional property management firm, our job is to act on your behalf, the owner/investor, to maximize your net operating income.
Some ways in which we maximize your rental income include but are not limited to the following:
Our motto is “He who is first wins” and it’s a big part of our success. Lightning fast response times to rental inquiries is one of the major differences between us and our competition. Our full-time reservations managers are on top of rental inquiries as soon as the email dings or the phone rings. Research shows that inquiries responded to within 1 hour of receipt are 50% more likely to book. Our reservations managers all receive base salaries and they also make a commission on every rental booking, so being the first responder is important to everyone.
Marketing is paramount in our business culture. Without the right rental clients, there are no bookings. With a proprietary database of over 37,000 area visitors, we will immediately launch your property to a target rich audience. No other management firm on 30A has an email database even close to what we have built over 15 years. With one single E-launch of your property, you will be placed in front of 37,000 real 30A vacationers.
In addition to our proprietary database of 30A renters, other ways we promote your asset include but are not limited to:
Tenant qualifying is one of the main ways we protect the value of your property.
We personally speak to every guest prior to their booking. The 30A Escapes team ensures that prospective guests are of proper age, responsible, and will take excellent care of the property they wish to book. We process all of our bookings with credit card payments which is the best way to protect against cancelations. At the time of booking, 50% of the rent is due and we have a strict cancelation policy to protect our owners’ earnings.
We are all about transparency in regards to the financials. Monthly owner statements are issued with full accounting of receipts, expenses and disbursements. Net rental funds are disbursed in a timely manner at the end of every month via ACH deposits. In addition, 30A Escapes collects and pays local, county, and state taxes on your behalf.
The 30A Escapes team stays on top of repairs and maintenance to preserve the value of your asset. Full scheduling and oversight of necessary repairs is coordinated by 30A Escapes. We conduct weekly property inspections during peak season and monthly inspections the rest of the year. Your dedicated property management team keeps close eyes on your 30A investment.
The 30A Escapes team is dedicated to making sure our guests enjoy every minute of their vacation. We handle all calls prior to, during and after their stay. We promptly respond to any issues or repair request that might arise. Our property managers are seasoned pros that know how to handle any challenge. We offer full concierge services to arrange any such requests our guests may have and we do it all with a personal touch that is unmatched on 30A.
The answer is simple, we live by two primary fiduciary duties:
1. Protect the value of your asset.
2. Provide the highest level rental returns in the market.
Everyday, we are dedicated and focused on fulfilling those duties to the best of our ability.
We are committed to upholding our end of the partnership and our team members are available to you both day and night. We do not keep “normal office hours” so that you can always reach us as you will have our mobile phone numbers. Our dedication and service to you the homeowner is second to none in the vacation property management industry as further demonstrated via the 30A Escapes Owners Perks Program.
We offer fair management rates which are based on the rental projections of your specific property.
