Our Operating Ideals

We look for guests on your behalf who will cherish the vacation at Valparai like we do. By sharing what we have as Property Owners, we can help families, couples and bachelor groups who want to make their own “At the Cottage Memories”. In a way of thinking, our guests pay for a share of the cottage and we, as Property Owners, obtain financial assistance to keep the cottage for years to come.... and when the magic all works, the same guests come back after years.

Renting | what we do

There are many components that we handle and bring together so that your cottage can be properly and effectively marketed to potential guest.

  • We visit you at your cottage. There we will have the first and foremost discuss your questions and requirements, so that we can manage our relationship and the management of your property with your needs top-of-mind.
  • We then start to work on collecting information on your cottage, surrounding area. We capture factual information so that we market only what your cottage has to offer. We like to understand some of the local folklore and special things you can tell us. This helps us describe your cottage in a more intimate way when we talk to potential guests.
  • We take pictures of everything on the property inside and out. Ideally to show the looks of your cottage to the guests. Remember that when we ask the guests to leave the cottage as they found it so, it is very important that we show those guests what clean and tidy looks like in the photos and when they arrive.
  • During the course of our interview with you, we will gather detailed amenity & features information that summarizes what you are offering with the rental. Items such as tv’s, internet access, number of bedrooms, types of beds all the way to parking, etc.
  • We will also put a property information package together, which documents standard rules and procedures when using the cottage facilities, where the nearest hospital is, distance between sightseeing spots, kitchen information and so forth.
  • Finally, we take the information gathered and do a competitive analysis within your area and recommend a rental rate for you. Often we can give you a ballpark up front but we do need to complete the local analysis to be sure we are pricing your place to be competitive with other similar properties in the area

The above activities will take time to complete accurately depending on the size of the property. You should plan on a 2 to 3 hour meeting with us to complete the first cut. We will take that information back to our office and formalize it. Once we are done we will send the finished materials and rental rate to you for validation, approval and updates if needed.

Listing your Cottage

Once we have the pictures, description, rate and supporting documents mentioned above, we:

  • List your property on Valparai Tourism web site oriented to Cottage rentals in Valparai. These listings consist of pictures, descriptions, location and rates.
  • We maintain a presence on Regional Tourism sites and Business Association sites that we belong to.
  • We then add it to our web site and develop additional richer content such as pictorial tours on www.valparaitourism.net.
  • We also promote our business through social media.

All of this gives you extensive exposure to the most popular media sites the Internet has to offer so that families, couples and bachelor groups can find your property and rent it.

Taking Bookings

As your Rental Management Agent, at all times we act on your behalf. We are the first point of contact for the Guests, working directly with them in completing a rental agreement; collecting the money and making sure they are aware of everything they need to know so that they can have the best experience possible. The majority of our Owners ask us to screen for families and couples who wants a better Experience.

Payments to you

Once the guests have experienced their vacation we remove money from Valparai Tourism account and process payment to you with in two business days after the guests departs.

Property Management Service

Responding to an increasing demand from some Property Owners, we can also do property management services in areas where we have reliable local help at a very nominal price. We will find the right set of resources and coordinate activities on your behalf in order to maintain the basic operation and cleanliness of your cottage. For larger jobs or emergencies, in most cases we can source the right help or link you directly with local contractors if you prefer. We do not take on large work request where we would be deemed a general contractor.
