Blue Sky Luxury is thrilled to participate in the first annual Vacation Rental Week—the vacation and holiday rental industry’s first of its kind! As a member of VRMA for the last 6 years, we’d like to use this opportunity to highlight the value and key benefits of professionally managed vacation rentals for both guests and property owners alike, and to encourage you to book a stay in Barbados or choose a professional manager to rent your vacation property.
As a guest, vacation rentals are a great alternative to hotels in every aspect, offering you much more for your money, with additional space, privacy, convenience, and amenities included. Along with this added value, your options are constantly increasing as the industry itself experiences rapid growth each year, meaning there are more available properties, more variety, and more destinations to choose from.
Vacation rentals also present you with a unique opportunity to create a more personalized, memorable vacation experience when compared with traditional hotels. You’ll have the practical comfort of an actual residence, the ability to explore the neighborhood, and the opportunity to discover aspects of your destination you might not encounter when staying at a hotel. If you’re vacationing with a group of family or friends, vacation rentals are an excellent option, typically offering multiple bedrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and easy access to local entertainment.
For property owners, renting your second property through a professional manager can be an easy and reliable revenue source, transforming it into an asset that offers a return on your investment and helps you reduce the cost of ownership. You’ll also be able to use the property when you choose, spending your own vacations there with family or friends, while renting it to guests the rest of the year.
A professional vacation rental manager will handle all the logistics, securing responsible guests, and maximizing your return through an expert understanding of the industry and in-depth knowledge of the local community. They’ll also advertise the property, handle inquiries, collect deposits and balances, generate agreements, and follow-up post-rental, so you can sit back and simply enjoy the experience.
