Basic Property Management
This is our standard programme providing a fully comprehensive service designed to give total peace of mind for holiday home owners, their family and guests and includes the following:-
- Key Holding – For our management clients we act as secure key holders. Any necessary visits to your property by emergency services, utility companies, tradesmen and delivery companies, etc. can be arranged directly with us.
- Monthly Inspections – We provide monthly inspections of your property whilst unoccupied. Our inspection reports will highlight any significant problems which will be notified to you the same day by email or fax, together with details of any necessary action taken or recommended to remedy the problem. This periodic inspection will cover:-
Security – Checking all doors and windows are correctly closed/locked and if applicable, that the alarm system is functioning correctly.
Utilities – Checking that the water, electric and phone (if applicable) services are connected. Toilets will be flushed and the taps run in sinks, baths and showers to ensure water traps to drains do not dry out.
Airing – Opening windows and doors to freshen your property.
Maintenance – Checking for evidence of any damage from water leaks or damp and for any other maintenance issues which should be addressed. Our report, where necessary, will be supported by photo-evidence together with our recommendations for any remedial action required.
Our company Housekeeper controls a team of cleaners who have been trained to clean our clients’ properties to pre-determined and consistent standards. A typical 2 bed/ 2 bath apartment would take 3 – 3½ hours. A typical 3 bed / 2 bath villa would take 5 – 6 hours.

Maintenance and Repairs
We have an experienced team of qualified tradesmen and specialist sub-contractors on hand to deal with any maintenance problems which may occur and who will remedy any minor problems highlighted by our inspection reports. For major problems we will pre-advise you and request your ok to carry out the necessary repairs – providing you beforehand with a detailed estimate of the work and costs involved. Our Project Manager will then supervise the works right through to completion. All work and materials are supported with trade guarantees.
