Rob has managed our vacation home for many years now. He has handled all kinds of concerns, both those that come up specifically related to bookings and the kind that have to do more with maintenance and security of my property. Two years ago a tree came down across my power line. It pulled the mast off the house. Rob called the electrician, had the tree cut up, and called a carpenter to do the repair and painting of the house siding. All I did was show up and find a nice pile of firewood.
We had Island Vacation Homes Ltd manage our waterfront home while we built a deck and installed a hot tub. Rob made sure the contractors had the access they needed, saw that everything was done in the proper order and finished off by competent people.
I achieved my dream of owning a vacation home on the west coast. When I am not there, I have more important things to do than create vacation home listings, take bookings, monitor calendars, call cleaners, and worry about what attention my home needs between bookings and then try to find the right person(s) to do those jobs. Rob handles all that.
