A few additional items:
Our rental properties are advertised primarily through www.vrbo.com and our company’s website, www.beachblueproperties.com. Our advertising success has surprised even us! A prompt and
thorough response to each and every rental inquiry has resulted in our enormous booking success. Each potential guest receives an email response to his rental inquiry within ten minutes. The Beach Blue website features detailed property descriptions, online
reservations, and instant quotes. Our current “repeat guest” percentage is approximately 25-30 percent for properties listed with our company for more than two years.
Booking, Policies and Tax Services
The process for scheduling, booking reservations, and collecting payments is streamlined and provides accurate accounting for each property. Online payments include major credit cards and
e-checks. Rentals are limited to persons over the age of 25, and pets are not allowed. Smoking is not permitted in any of our rental properties.
Each guest rental includes damage insurance that covers unintentional damage to the property up to $1500 per reservation. In addition, we offer optional travel protection coverage through
CSA Travel Insurance. The policy provides reimbursement to the guest for a reservation cancellation within 45 days of arrival for weather or medical related events. All refunds for cancellations within 45 days of arrival will be issued through CSA Travel Insurance.
Our travel protection insurance plan is offered to protect our guest’s vacation investment, and to protect the property owner’s revenue stream.
We offer monthly filing and payment of state and county sales and use tax as a service to our property owners. Monthly rental activity statements and revenue payments are sent to property
owners by the 10th day of each month. Property owners may access their rental calendar, make owner reservations and view monthly statements by logging into the “OWNERWEB” section of our website.
The rental property must be “inventory ready”, which means it must include all bedding, kitchen items, furniture, lighting, rugs, etc., needed for rental. We will provide a list of items
needed, but will be happy to stock your unit with necessary items if you prefer. Beach Blue will provide bed, bath and kitchen linens, and charge the cost to the owner’s account.
Housekeeping and Maintenance
Our professional housekeepers will clean and inspect your rental property immediately following each guest departure. We will charge the guest a reasonable and customary cost for the cleaning
fee. A member of our staff will conduct a walk through of the property following each guest departure. Light bulb and air filter changes, and remote control/battery replacements are offered free of charge to the owner. Other home maintenance services (carpet
cleaning, heat and air service, plumbing repairs, appliance repairs, tile cleaning, pressure washing, etc.) will be offered as needed and charged to the owner’s account. A deep clean will be completed yearly during the off-season and charged to the owner’s
Beach Blue charges a flat commission percentage of the gross rental revenue for your property. The property owner will be charged an annual advertising fee of $600, and will pay the cost
of providing two full sets of linens upon start up. If your property is located in Sandestin Resort, we require that you provide tram service to your guests at a cost of approximately $500 annually. We do not charge the property owner for credit card fees,
amenity fees, or other miscellaneous fees.
Property owners may use their rental property at their own discretion by reserving dates via the OWNERWEB section of our website. We do not limit the number of weeks available for owner
use. However, we strongly suggest that owners limit peak season reservations, and adhere to the “Saturday to Saturday” booking structure that is consistent with our booking procedure. Please be aware that the more time you have available for vacationers
during peak season, the more income your property will generate.
