Why list with Finest Retreats?
We're genuinely different in our approach. Being owners of a holiday cottages ourselves, we wanted to create a website that hands back control to independent holiday cottage owners and showcases only a select few of the finest properties. Finest Retreats is designed to put you in control.
Some of the ways we set ourselves apart:
Payments 6 weeks in advance
No annual or sign-up costs - its free to list!
Let as many or a few weeks as you like
A local, personal account manager with a friendly service!
Stay in control - set your own booking conditions, payment terms etc
Sign up only takes 5 minutes - we do the work of creating your listing
What you get - Services and features
Calendar sync with your existing platforms and booking systems
We can easily link up with all the major booking platforms you may be currently using. Every time we take a booking your existing calendars will be updated, and vice versa. No hassle!
FREE, professional photography for all new signups before January 2020
For all new owners that we accept on to our website, we will send round a professional photographer to stage your property and take some new, high quality photos. All free of charge. We recognise how important it is to show off your property in the best light and that's why we are happy to cover the cost of this important aspect of successful letting.
Low commissions starting from only 5%
No annual or sign up costs make it free to list - only pay for the bookings we generate. It's risk-free advertising where you have nothing to lose!
We only select the best, well-run properties
Enable your property to stand out from the crowd and showcase it alongside only the best cottages. Our guests tend to be more respectful and discerning since we don't market bargain-basement properties.
Security deposits as standard on all bookings
We take a mandatory security deposit from all guests which offers you protection and only attracts those who will treat your property with respect.
Listing on Finest Retreats
Show your property off on a slick and user-friendly website optimised for mobile browsing. We don't fix the search results in favour of any type of owner meaning you get your fair share of website views and bookings.
Advertising with selected online and offline partners
We work hard to promote your property and work with selected brands to help boost our profile and bring in more bookings for our owners.
Other optional services
Because of our personal and tailored approach we are able to offer more to those owners who want the extra assistance. Finest Retreats also offer a full property management service for the owners who would prefer a more hands-off approach. You can read more about our full management service here.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to look after the changeovers and customer admin yourself and just have a single point of contact for your bookings, we are also happy to work on a sole lettings agency basis. You can read more about that here.
