Should I get a property manager for my Byron Bay holiday property or Airbnb?

To establish an in-demand, income-generating and successful holiday rental property, there are a lot of things you have to juggle. This is especially true if your property is located outside of where you normally live.

Managing the availability, cleaning and maintenance, responding to enquiries and managing guest bookings is a huge time commitment. Not to mention you need to be available and on-call for your guests 24/7. If you fail to get it right and create a seamless guest experience, your reviews will reflect this and bookings will be impacted.

A local Byron holiday home and Airbnb property manager can help you reduce your time commitment and increase your income and the overall guest experience. You’ll have peace of mind knowing your property is being found, booked, cleaned and maintained and guests are having a memorable holiday.

If you know that you want to be 100% hands-off when it comes to the management of your holiday rental property, a property management company is a must.

What are the benefits of using a local Byron Bay holiday property manager?

If self-managing your holiday rental is eating too much into your free time or causing you too much stress, a good holiday property management company like Beach Houses of Byron is just what you need. With a good local holiday property manager you’ll:

  • Get back your peace of mind
  • Have a clean, maintained and well presented holiday home year-round
  • Have access to a number of proven industry connections such as cleaners, maintenance staff and other local businesses
  • Enjoy more you time
  • Have a round the clock on-call emergency contact
  • Increase your overall guest experience
  • Have access to invaluable local and industry knowledge and advice

Our ultimate goal is to give you peace of mind, increase your bookings and give your guests 5-star review worthy holiday experiences they will never forget.

What services do holiday property managers provide?

We offer end-to-end property management and tailor our services to suit how hands-on Airbnb property owners want to be. Tasks you may choose to outsource to your property manager include:

  • Respond to 100% of initial guest inquiries
  • Providing a 24/7 local emergency contact
  • Coordination of cleaners, laundry services and all maintenance issues
  • Be the main point of contact for your guests (responding and messaging guests, answering questions, sending out booking information)

  • Replenishment of consumables (toilet paper, tissues, soaps, garbage bags, etc.)
  • Guidance and management of styling, interior design and property photography
  • Collecting and monitoring guest reviews

How do I decide which holiday rental management tasks to outsource?

Deciding which tasks to outsource and how hands-on (or off!) you want to be when it comes to managing your Airbnb property can be difficult. Consider the following:

  • Which aspects of the work do you enjoy, if any?
  • Do you have enough time to dedicate to being an exceptional host?
  • What aspects are you comfortable having a third party manage?
  • Are you happy with your results as a self-managed host?
