Holiday Vacation Rentals is a full-service professional vacation rental management company servicing northern Michigan. Our mission is to provide rental guests with memorable vacation experiences and to increase rental revenue for home owners.
Holiday Vacation Rentals was founded in 2005 by Managing Director Alan R. Hammond, who has served as a Director, Officer, and Treasurer of the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) and holds the Certificated Vacation Rental Manager (CVRM) designation. A recognized industry leader, Alan is quoted in the book The Rental Game: Winning with a Professional Vacation Rental Team by Maureen Regan. Holiday Vacation Rentals is a proud VRMA member.
Holiday Vacation Rentals’ exceptional customer service results in satisfied guests returning year after year. We manage the entire process for you, making it practical and convenient for you to rent your home without having to worry about the details. In addition to handling all aspects of reservations, our expert staff will ensure your property is well cared for so you can have the peace of mind you need.
Our staff is trained in industry best practices to enhance guests’ vacation experiences and earn you more rental revenue. We use sophisticated property management software to manage reservations in real time and a trust accounting system to assure that your financial transactions are safe. As a homeowner in our rental program, you will receive detailed monthly revenue reporting and have your rental money quickly. Our good-neighbor policy, rental rules, and 24-hour emergency assistance hotline helps ensure the safety and satisfaction of guests and owners.
We maintain high quality standards for housekeeping, and guest services are monitored continuously. We also provide a complete compliment of guest amenities, including hand soaps, shampoo and conditioner, dish and laundry soap, paper towels, toilet and facial tissue, and coffee. Home walk-throughs are performed before and after each renter to ensure property care and guest satisfaction.
Holiday Vacation Rentals is a fully licensed and insured vacation rental management company. Additionally, we require Accidental Rental Damage Insurance or a security deposit from each renter to protect your home against accidental damages. Travel insurance is optionally available to guests, providing even more peace of mind for vacationers and homeowners alike. Our property management contracts and guest rental agreements are reviewed by legal professionals. Additionally, we prepare and manage sales taxes on your behalf and prepare your 1099 tax form annually to make it easy for you to file your rental property taxes.
As a full-service professional management company, we also advertise to get your property seen by more potential guests at no extra cost. To market your property, we invest in hundreds of online distribution channels, use effective online advertising services such as Google Adwords and Facebook, and maintain a mailing list of 10,000 vacationers, past renters, and new inquirers. Additionally, each home in our program has its own dedicated page on our website, and we stay active in our efforts to outrank the competition through search engine optimization (SEO), helping your home to get found by renters in search engine results.
We provide homeowners with a free consultation and offer flexible fee options, each with a variety of benefits and services. We are happy to look at your home and discuss what rental rate would best fit your property and individual needs. Our property management fee is charged as a percentage of monthly rental revenues. All rental fees such as housekeeping and damage insurances are paid for by guests, not owners. There are no restrictions on the number of weeks owners can use their vacation property. We also allow your home to be listed for sale while being rented provided that your Realtor® or agent coordinates closely with us for showings and ensures current and future leases are honored as contractually required throughout the sales process. Our real estate sales division can also help you list and sell your property seamlessly, as well as offer unique insight to potential buyers or investors seeking a vacation rental property.
Holiday Vacation Rentals provides rental management services throughout northern Michigan, including Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Cross Village, Good Hart, Mackinaw City, Boyne City, Charlevoix, and Glen Arbor. We are now accepting new rentals into our program. If you have a luxury residence, lodge, cabin, condo, or home with distinctive appeal and a location guests would enjoy, contact us today!
