Our Consultancy Services

Let me help you understand the self-catering rental business in more detail. Whether you are new to the self-catering industry, you may not have even bought a property yet, or you have been renting your property for a while, I can offer advice in all areas of the business.

Renting a large holiday house is different from renting a 2 or 3 bedroom cottage. Variables include:-

Pricing Strategies – Getting your prices right from the start is the foundation to a successful business. If you get this wrong, it doesn’t matter how beautiful your property is, or how many key features it offers, you will not achieve the best ROI.


Guest Avatar – a large property appeals to many potential customers. Guests may look to book your property for a family holiday, a big number birthday, an anniversary, a hen party, a corporate event. You will need more than one marketing message throughout your website, marketing and social media campaigns.


Seasons – the market for a large property has no limitations. You can see bookings at times of the year other smaller properties, may well be closed.

Managing bookings
– whether you chose us to act as your agent, or you pick our listing site option you need systems in place to keep track of your bookings. I can help you identify what solutions are best for you, from a PMS system to online guest handbooks. This industry has seen a flood of technology solutions over the last four or five years, let us help you pick the ones that are right for you.

Furnishing and equipping your property. Along with 29 years in the self-catering industry, I also have a diploma and a degree in hotel and hospitality management.
Financial Planning. Over the years, I have seen owners begin the journey of renting their large holiday home with no plan for the future. Year on year, they raised their prices, but put no income aside for refurbishment.

I can offer a tailormade package to suit your needs.
Whether you would like help choosing a property to buy or would just like an appraisal of your current property and marketing strategies, please fill in the form on the right-hand side to schedule a call.

You have a fantastic property; together let’s work to establish and grow your brand and increase your profits.
