Why House Parties
We are a small boutique agency, offering a personal service to both homeowners and guests. We pride ourselves on delivering outstanding experiences to our guests and an efficient service to you the homeowner.
We take the security of our owner’s homes very seriously, which is why we do not use websites such as “Airbnb” because they restrict access to your guest information. We believe we should know the name and address of every guest before we send them to your home.
We save you money by offering a far more competitive commission rate than many of our competitors, but still offering a far more comprehensive and efficient service to you and your guests.
What we can offer you that some other agents in the large, luxury holiday home market can’t :
- A fully integrated reservation system that is available to owners and caretakers so you can log in 24 hours a day to check the status of your bookings.
- An online booking system for guests – some agents can’t offer this and it is essential to ensure maximum levels of bookings. Guests want to book online 24 hours a day.
- An up-to-date website that is fully https compliant and mobile and tablet friendly. More and more guests are now using tablets and phones to search and book for properties; if a site isn’t compliant and compatible it will rank very poorly with Google.
- An ongoing Search Engine Optimization Campaign – this ensures that we rank efficiently for many popular and niche searches.
- We actively encourage guest reviews – each guest will be sent a request to review their stay, this is then visible on our website. Reviews are now essential.
- An online app for every house which is sent to each guest as soon as they book. It contains information on the house they are staying as well as links to services they may wish to book, places they may wish to visit as well as links to restaurants and bars offering special offers to your guests.
- We nurture past guests through mailshot campaigns, Facebook and Instagram posts. If you are fed up with paying too much commission, possibly having to list your property with multiple agents and still not achieving the occupancy you want and you would like to talk to us about joining House Parties please fill out the enquiry form on the right and someone will contact you as soon as possible.
