Vacation Rentals

For many homeowners the prospect of renting their own property is quite alluring. You take bookings directly from travelers without paying a fee or commission to a rental company – sounds easy right? According to Vacation Rental By Owner reviews, an overwhelming majority of homeowners say they get better results when choosing a professionally-managed vacation rental company like Garden City Realty to rent their property.

There is no doubt that the trend of vacationers choosing to rent condos and beach homes rather than hotel rooms is becoming increasingly popular. Condos and vacation rental homes provide more affordable options to a variety of vacationers. By offering a greater selection of choices, vacationers can select properties with features important to their individual needs; such as ample space for large families or full-service kitchens to prepare their own meals. Garden City Realty enables prospective guests to narrow their search by identifying criteria they deem important in making their vacation experience pleasant and enjoyable. Important amenities like private swimming pools and hot tubs, outdoor grills, private and public boat dock access, large common areas and porches for family gatherings, washer and dryer availability and ample televisions and DVD players can be identified prior to guests’ arrival.

What About Maintenance?

How does a homeowner renting their own property address renter concerns and maintenance issues without a full-service maintenance department? For example, what do you do if you’re a homeowner living in New York and there’s an emergency maintenance situation with your rental property in Garden City Beach? These types of calls can come anytime day or night. You need to locate a qualified service repair person fast. Imagine the time spent on the phone describing the issue without actually seeing it or coordinating with the guests to set-up the appointment - while you’re five states away. In addition, how can you guarantee the repair person will show-up? Even worse, what if you weren’t even alerted to the situation? Who’s looking out for your property when you’re not around? This can be a nightmare for many vacation property homeowners.

Garden City Realty is prepared to address any obstacle presented by guests and homeowners. Responding to information acquired from routine property inspections and guest feedback, we’ve become experts at knowing what to anticipate and how to remedy the situation. Our experienced maintenance staff quickly reassures guests by promptly addressing their concerns. The same service applies to our homeowners. If a property is in need of updates, our staff will recommend replacing or repairing items such as furniture and appliances. We’ll even suggest local businesses to assist in the service and repair of your property. Because Garden City Realty is an experienced, professional rental company it is our job to provide the highest in quality standards. In addition, we provide departure maid and linen services for the convenience of you and your guests.
