Vacation Rental and Bed and Breakfast Owners Benefit from Rentalo’s Exceptional Advertising Value, Quality of Leads and Site Functionality
Well managed vacation rentals and bed and breakfasts receive high ROI on advertising and time-saving features to ease property management tasks
Miami, FL. January 14, 2010. If you are an existing vacation home owner or manager, or an individual considering renting your second home, recent testimonials from Rentalo's clients reveal high revenue potential for home owners and hospitality businesses. Marketing your vacation property online to find short term renters can be very costly and time consuming. It could take years and a small fortune to increase your business profits by trial and error. Savvy property owners, innkeepers and property management firms take advantage of the success of a leading directory to market their properties more efficiently. Below are some testimonials from existing clients of Rentalo.com; the Internet’s leading travel directory for advertising vacation rentals, bed and breakfasts and hotels.
“Your website generates a lot of leads and a good majority of my bookings.” says Shannon Paolocci, owner/manager of a luxury condo in Sanibel Island Florida, a 1,603 sq, 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment located in Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa.
“I have been listing with Rentalo since 1999 or 2000. Through your web site I have received many, many inquiries and have rented to several of your clients. I have watched you grow into a leader in the vacation rental market since joining your site near it's inception.” shares Craig Caffall, owner of a beautiful vacation rental home in San Miguel de Allende in Guanajuato, Mexico.
“Rentalo has been my major source of referrals since I joined 4 or 5 years ago.” says Sharon Arkin, owner of Bed and Bagels Tucson Bed and Breakfast; an elegant, children and pet friendly B&B with desert and mountain views located in Tucson, Arizona.
In addition to the site’s proven success in generating high quality leads and bookings for its clients, there are important site functionality factors that are very valuable for property managers. Here is what Ms. Paolocci says about Rentalo’s exclusive Auto-Offers feature: “My favorite feature is the automatic offer. If I am not able to reply to a potential renter right away, at least they are being given some information about my unit so they have instant feedback and can see what I offer. Your website handles that automatically. I am notified that the offer is sent and can add to it when I am back at the computer. My property looks fantastic on your site and your layouts are great. Keep up the good work!.”
Rentalo’s unique feature called destination-based inquiries also has proven highly effective in allowing owners to find renters searching for accommodations in their destinations. “I like it because it offers direct communication between travelers interested in my destination” says Sharon Arkin.
“Making the web site more effective for travelers and property owners while maintaining the advertising costs affordable has been challenging, but rewarding at the same time” says Alfredo Purrinos, President and founder of Rentalo.com. “Our success is the result of my team’s commitment to providing our inventory clients the best results at the lowest possible subscription costs.”
“It's very easy to navigate the site for both owners and travelers alike. You keep your listing prices to an affordable rate especially during this hard economic time. One of my favorite features is the fact that we as owners, can post as many pictures we see fit to promote our properties. And your availability calendar is easy to keep current and potential guests can understand it. When people ask me about renting my house in San Miguel de Allende, I send them to my Rentalo page of which I have the link printed on my business card. I have used other vacation rental sites but have found Rentalo to be the best for my rental needs. Thank you for all your help and service during these past 10 years and here's to many more years of rentals to come.” says Craig Caffall.
