We specialize in managing and marketing short term vacation rentals in the Alligator Point, Florida area. As the owners of several area vacation rental properties ourselves, we understand what it takes to successfully manage a property. We treat all of the managed properties as if they were our own.
We provide an eye-catching exterior sign on your home to identify it as a vacation rental as well as for marketing purposes. We get many calls and compliments on our bright signs. We also include a guest information book in the property filled with helpful information such as guest services, phone numbers for attractions, activities, and equipment rentals and other tourist information. We post rules, check out instructions, and emergency contact numbers in your home. Our guests are very appreciative of all the useful information provided along with their vacation rental.
We are here to protect the owner's property. All guests are required to sign a rental agreement and review the policies. We primarily rent to families or adult groups over the age of 25. Some preventative measures we include in our agreement are not allowing house parties, not allowing the number of guests to exceed the published capacity of the home, and not renting to student groups under the age of 25. We do everything we can to protect your home and your investment.
Vacation rentals had strong occupancy last season and 2009 is shaping up to be even better. On some busy weekends all of the rentals that we manage were occupied. Even our most expensive vacation rentals with weekly rents of over $3,000 per week had strong occupancy.
Harbor Point takes special pride in managing our vacation rentals and treating them as if they are our own. We offer over 40 vacation properties ranging from Gulf to Bay and canal homes with boat access to interior homes in the Bald Point area. Prices range from $700 to over $3,000 a week during our peak season.
Because everyone who works with Harbor Point Realty lives in the Alligator Point area one of us drives by every managed property almost everyday. We take care of overturned trash cans, overgrown lawns and leaking water pipes right away.
Harbor Point is proud of our rental management system that integrates with our website and provides real time availability calendars as well as credit card processing. Potential guests can send a specific rental request directly from our webpage that becomes a reservation once our manager confirms the information. Owners of our vacation rental houses can log into a special section of our website to make their own reservations and check the status of their properties. Additionally, our system allows us to electronically manage the cleaning and maintenance of each property as well as the monthly income statements to owners.
Harbor Point Realty advertises online through search engine placement as well as Visit Florida, which is the state's tourism development agency. Reservations are also generated through periodic mailings to all past rental guests.
We are accepting a limited number of new vacation rentals properties to manage in the Alligator Point area.
