Property Management Services

As owners of vacation rental properties ourselves, and with more than 40 years’ experience managing vacation homes in Cayucos, you can be assured that we understand your excitement about having your property pay for itself, but we also understand you may have some concerns when allowing your valuable property to be rented – such as:

  • How clean will your home be kept?
  • Will renters be a good fit for your property?
  • What about damages or if something happens?
  • How often will your property be booked and what rates can you expect?

Be assured – we take care of everything you could think of – plus more. You never have to lift a finger!

Here’s why:


Your home will enjoy the highest standard of cleaning and maintenance available. We use only independent cleaners who are licensed and bonded.

Over time, our cleaners develop a familiarity with your property, and they look at your home as a “relationship” not just another job, and take great pride in providing a clean and attractive living space. In addition, all properties are inspected and inventoried by our cleaning inspector to ensure your property is ready for the next guest, and is staged to confirm everything is in order and working well.

Here’s how it works:

Before renters arrive:

  • Your home is “staged” by making sure everything is in working order. Appliances, including remotes and TVs are briefly used to make sure they work. Toilets are flushed, faucets and showers run, etc.
  • Your windows are cleaned, and blinds/curtains are in working order.
  • The correct temperature is even set for your home.
  • We leave a completed form informing renters that all of the above has been checked and overseen personally by us.

Upon renter departure:

  • We do a lockout, meaning we secure the premises, make sure everything is in working order and that nothing has been damaged.
  • Cleaners come in within 48 hours to clean.
  • You are rarely bothered with any issues. By doing the above we develop an intimate knowledge of your home, and most of time any issues that come up, we take care of without ever bothering you.


You know you’re always getting renters that are the best fit for your home. We personally match to the right renters for each property. That is done by screening every renter that books with us.   Even with online booking, we call them and screen them, so the house won’t have too many people, or people that won’t be respectful of your home.

Your neighbors will not be bothered. We follow county noise ordnances so renters won’t disturb the surrounding neighbors, keeping a high quality of life for everyone.


You can rest easy because we use CSA-Travel Protection so your property is covered for many basic items that may be soiled or damaged by accident by a renter – such as wine spilled on a carpet or a garbage disposal that was broken. For more details about this, please contact our office and we will gladly talk to you!

The bottom line is – you and your property are taken care of just like the home was our own!


In order to help you with this, we will personally come out and visit you and your home after which you will receive a written evaluation. The evaluation will go over what rates you will get and how often your property can be expected to be booked.

Location, number of bedrooms, how your home is decorated, and how willing you are to rent throughout the year including summers, weekends, and some holidays – all of these factors are taken into keen consideration when providing a thorough evaluation. The more available the home, the more we can get you rental income! Contact us for a free evaluation; we’d love to talk to you!
