The Blue Standard
Blue Sky Luxury has been renting villas and holiday homes in Barbados for over 40 years (previously under the Bajan Services brand). We manage the majority of our properties we rent to ensure a seamless guest experience. Recognising the lack of standards relate to the minimum level of quality service in the rentals market, The Blue Standard was established. Our standard is for the benefit of property owners and guests alike.
As the on the ground and direct representitives for our owners, we work to create a seamless experiece that ensures that your holiday rental is perfect upon your arrival!
Health & Safety
Home audits to ensure that health and safety standards are maintained are very important and they incorporate areas which international and local tour operators want addressed/reviewed. These audits include:
- Fire checks – smoke detectors, fire blankets, fire extinguishers
- Health & safety checks – availability of first aid kits, flashlights, proper signage, e.g. pool signage at both individual and common areas
- Risk area checks: tiled areas which may be slippery when wet; height of steps; width of balcony railings; glass doors.
Guests or tenants should be advised by letter or guidebook of any areas that may pose a concern or threat. This protects the guest/client as well as the owner.
“It looks even nicer than the photos!” is the one truly fulfilling statement we get from our clients when they see one of our properties in person! The accuracy is so important to our guests/tenants as they need to feel confident that what they have rented is exactly what was promised and to our owners who take great pride in knowing their property has met or surpassed the standards and services advertised.
Cleanliness & Maintenance
All homes in our portfolio are checked regularly and each owner has an agreement in place specific to how often this is to be completed. Each property manager uses our devised checklists and if any issues are found, there is a plan of action to have these remedied. These checklists along with those for health & safety and hurricane, incorporate over 250 points/areas that are checked by each property manager on our team for each home. Having these checks completed as agreed, helps to prevent any problems from developing in to more serious issues over time.
