Holiday Rental Specialists is a specialist holiday rental manager, a family owned business.
Holiday Rental Specialists help owners who have worked hard to earn their investment property, that want to protect that investment and want to share it with others, all whilst they earn a solid return. The team encourage owners to buy holiday rental properties in fabulous locations, and present them beautifully, so guests rave about their experience and ultimately create a place where wonderful memories are made by all.
Founder, Rebecca Cribbin and her team look after properties all over Australia, the business has grown from just 20 properties under management in 2014 to nearly 400 today. They specialise in holiday properties in Culburra, Callala and Currarong as well as Jervis Bay, the Southern Highlands, Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa, Berry, Kangaroo Valley and The Sunshine Coast. The team have the expertise and contacts to manage holiday rental properties anywhere in Australia.
Rebecca is thrilled to be working in the holiday rental industry. “The two things I love to do most is spend time with my family and friends and travel, at the intersection of those two things for me is FUN. I believe that families who travel together and have fun are more likely to stay together. It excites me that I can help make that magic happen.”
In 2018 nearly 100,000 holiday makers will stay in properties managed by the team at Holiday Rental Specialists across Australia.
Holiday Rental Specialists look after everything: the advertising, the bookings, the housekeeping and the maintenance. When owners entrust their holiday rental to us, they find they have more time for the fun stuff, they can enjoy all the benefits of owning a holiday rental and earn more income than they would have if they were to manage the property themselves.
Holiday Rental Specialists have been the recipients to the Southern Highlands Business Award for Tourism Services in 2016 and 2017 and are finalists in the awards for 2018. They also won the 2016 Silver Award for Holiday Rental Management on the South Coast of NSW. Plus were national finalists in the Australian Small Business Awards in the category of Tourism for 2016. This year business owner, Rebecca Cribbin, is a finalist in the Southern Highlands business person of the year award.
After working with hundreds of owners we have noticed that most owners face three major challenges with their holiday rental investment property.
- They don’t live locally to their property so they don’t have the necessary contacts for trades, housekeepers and maintenance and they aren’t on the ground when a guest needs assistance.
- The business of advertising, booking, cleaning and managing a holiday rental property is complicated and constantly changing. Most owners don’t have the experience or access to the expensive technology required to maintain a high profile online.
- Each property takes an average of 40 bookings a year and at least 200 enquiries to get those bookings, most owners just don’t have the time to manage this amount of enquiry.
Holiday Rental Specialists want their owners to know that their holiday rental is really working for them and feel relaxed about it.
Holiday Rental Specialists want to be known as the company that can double the income an owner can earn from their holiday rental.
Holiday Rental Specialists manage properties and in turn this allows people who can’t afford to buy a holiday rental to stay in one and create fabulous memories.
