Here is what our owners are saying…

Testimonials-One Seagrove Place 802

We’ve owned locally for 12+ years now and have used 3 previous management companies. We learned the hard way what was necessary to maximize our profits, and that it’s about more than keeping the place full. We’ve found our current management company, Best Beach Getaways, most important to our success over the past 2 years and counting; a company owned and run by people of honesty and integrity, who treat both us as owners and our guests fair and right. We no longer worry about many of the things we’ve encountered over the years with the previous companies. You can always count on Best Beach Getaways to be creative and flexible in the rental programs they offer; to consistently provide top-level housekeeping services and maintenance; to pay you what and when they owe you; and to value and appreciate your business. We highly recommend Best Beach Getaways; and that’s not something we say casually or lightly! We always feel like Best Beach Getaways management team places a high level of importance on our business; and we know that our guests feel the same way about them.

Testimonials-Sterling Shores 518

After 9 years with the same local & onsite Property Management & Rental representation, I took the time to explore my alternatives in the Destin Market. My criteria for making a move was predicated on a company’s marketing platform, management fee structure and quality of all things related to housekeeping. In May 2013, I selected Best Beach Getaways to handle our vacation rental marketing & management and have been extremely pleased with the results both from a financial standpoint and in the attention to detail in maintaining our vacation rental and in taking care of our guests.

Testimonials-Splash 1202

Best Beach Getaways has been managing my rental property since 2009. I have been very pleased with their management of my unit.  Their commission rates are very reasonable, and they do not load owners with frequent miscellaneous charges. My occupancy has increased under their management, and I stay in control by setting minimum rental rates. I can always trust that the management team will take good care of me, my condo, and my guests. I would gladly recommend Best Beach Getaways to other owners.

This is the first year that I have used Best Beach Getaways as my rental manager for my two properties in Panama City Beach.  So far, my rental income is at least double what it was last year for both units.  The staff at Best Beach Getaways is very attentive to my needs and responds to me in a timely fashion.  Suffice it to say that I have been very pleased with how Best Beach Getaways handles my investments.

Testimonials-Seychelles 901

Changing management companies is not an easy decision. For us, it was the right change. Best Beach Getaways is a company that truly cares about the people it represents and rents to. We no longer feel like we own “just another condo”. It’s that specialized service that makes them stand out from the rest. They address our questions and concerns rapidly which is important to us since we do not live in the area. They are very accessible and have proven to be able to handle the most intricate situations easily. We are able to use our condo whenever we want since they don’t require any mandatory allotment of weeks. Yet, they always keep it adequately rented during the time we don’t use it. This year it was occupied 92% of the weeks through August. In all, we are extremely satisfied with Best Beach Getaways.

We have enjoyed the increase in revenue, but have been most impressed with the services from the management team. They are familiar with our unit and are available anytime we need them. We strongly recommend Best Beach Getaways to owners in need of rental property management.

Testimonials-Ensoleil 411 & Marisol 705

We like Best Beach Getaways one-on-one approach.  They market all their properties individually.  So the guests get to pick my unit because they like what they see. I also like that I can talk to the President of the company any time.  And Matt, the Operations Manager in Panama City Beach, is just as accessible. I’m getting better service than I got from the onsite companies, and my revenue’s better two years running! I took time to make the decision, but I’m glad I made Best Beach Getaways my choice.

Testimonials-Capistrano 201

We switched to Best Beach Getaways after much research, for more competitive commission rates for full or VRBO agency services, for our rental condo. We use them for confirming reservations, processing deposits and entry codes, completing post-rental cleaning and providing maintenance services, at reasonable prices. I would recommend Best Beach Getaways to other owners to manage their rental property.

Testimonials-Villas at Seacrest

I have owned my Villas at Seacrest condo since 2004. I have been disappointed in the past by companies providing the same service they promised and they were unresponsive to my requests. I signed on with Best Beach Getaways in 2011. Since then, my rental income has increased every year. The Best Beach Getaways management team could not be more helpful and responsive. My condo is better cared for than ever. I highly recommend Best Beach Getaways. If you would like to talk to my about my experiences, email me at denisepiefke@yahoo.com.

Testimonials-Long Beach 4-705

We chose Best Beach Getaways after our Realtor recommended them. In the first year we owned our condo, we thought we would not get much business because it was a new listing. But the Best Beach Getaways management team surprised us by booking solid all of the summer and spring break! Even September was booked in our first year. We are thrilled by the amount of rental income we are getting. Best Beach Getaways has a friendly staff and always picks up the phone when we call. They are doing a great job keeping the condo clean and looking good. When we had some damage done by a renter, Matt took care of everything. We believe that our condo is in good hands with Best Beach Getaways. We’re looking forward to next year.

Testimonials-St. Croix 502

I have had my condo at St. Croix in Silver Shells with Best Beach Getaways for many years. I have seen an increase in revenue year after year and I appreciate the care they take in managing my unit. Delphine McGibiany, the Operations Manager, treats my unit as if it were her own. She goes above and beyond to make sure my unit is well maintained and I know that I can reach out to her anytime I have questions or concerns. I strongly recommend the Best Beach Getaways team to all owners.

Testimonials-Hakuna Matata and Karibu

We have rented Hakuna Matata and Karibu, our vacation homes in Seaside since 1992. Two years ago we decided to hire Best Beach Getaways to help manage our rental homes and we immediately knew we had made the right decision. Phone calls are answered on the spot or are returned in a timely fashion. When maintenance problems arise, the staff at Best Beach Getaways takes care of it promptly, even if it means purchasing an appliance and installing it for us. Thank you, Best Beach Getaways, for a great experience with your rental program.

We have been with Best Beach Getaways for 5 years and have been extremely happy with their management of our vacation property. We have two units that both rent very well even during the winter months. Every year their goal is to increase sales and they always manage to do that. Delphine McGibiany is an awesome Operations Manager who goes out of her way to fix things in a pinch. She manages to always find the best contractors at the most reasonable rates.

Testimonials-Long Beach 1-1104

We have been with Best Beach Getaways for almost a year and are very pleased with both the rental income and the way they have met service expectations.  We have dealt with other property management companies in the area and we can say without a doubt that the management team delivers on their promises and provide great customer service to both the owners as well as the guests.  When we signed up, we were given a detailed description of how they conduct business and developed a schedule of anticipated rental income, which was more than we had previously made on our unit.  Before the year is even out, they have already delivered more than the rental income plan.  The recordkeeping is also very professional and timely. Housekeeping has also been better than most we have experienced. We highly recommend Best Beach Getaways to other vacation rental owners
