We are a complete solution for your short term let offering a fully managed service for both clients and guests in our beautiful city of Bath.

This depends on the location, size and number of bedrooms. Please contact us and we can discuss further.
We don’t believe in long term contracts and operate on a 30-day notice period.
Due to the amount of work involved in establishing a successful short term let, we would only consider properties that will be available for a minimum of three months or more in a 12 month period.
Our standard rate is 17% + VAT. Cleaning, linen and essential supplies are charged in addition to this, but most clients charge guests a cleaning fee to offset some of the additional overhead costs.
We hope that this wont be the case, but don’t worry, if you don’t have any booking you wont need to pay anything.

Yes. We appreciate that sometimes your circumstances change and you need someone to either act as a co-host, or take over the management of an existing property when it hasn't worked out with another management company.

We then pay the balance into your designated account.
When checking into a property nearly all guests prefer the convenience of using a key safe. We send clear instructions to guests after the cancellation period has ended to ensure that they have clear instructions for accessing the property. We are always available on the phone if required as well.
