We are householders in the Margaret River region and House Down South look after our holiday rental property.
In this industry, if the service from Property Managers is poor, it is reflected in the reviews and bookings, and therefore occupation rate and income.
Communication with guests and owners needs to be spot on, and there is also a requirement for the engagement and coordination of reliable and competent ancillary services such as cleaning, linen and property maintenance services to ensure everything runs smoothly and guests are not inconvenienced at any time, as it only takes one cog in the wheel to break and the whole team effort counts for nothing.
We have found House Down South work exceptionally hard to ensure the house is presented immaculately to our guests on arrival, and that back up team remain on track at all times, which leave our guests very pleased and accordingly leave good reviews, which in turn attract more guests.
We are delighted with the way Steve and Tina manage our property and would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to do the same.
Anne and Adrian Pegdon, The Deck
We have found Steve and Tina to be fabulous managers of our two properties.
Their care and attention to detail of the properties, immediate response and repairs of any issues or faults and their prompt replies to our queries or requests is exemplary.
We are very happy with their service and look forward to continuing our business
Brigid and John, Abundance and Aroha
Our place has been managed by House Down South since 2017.
Steve and Tina do fantastic work, professionally looking after our place and making our holiday-tenants feel welcome, as well as maintaining great website, booking and communication tools. The partnership and the mutual trust built over the last three years has provided us great peace-of-mind as owners, especially through recent times, when we have been unable to visit Margaret River! Thanks HDS.
