Why Choose Select Vacation Properties?
If you currently own a property on Sanibel or Captiva Islands, or are considering purchasing a property for investment purposes, there can be a lot to consider when deciding to put the property in a rental program. Select Vacation Properties is a locally-owned vacation rental agency on Sanibel Island specializing in management and marketing of properties just like yours!
With decades of combined experience managing rental properties on the Island, our staff at Select Vacation Properties understands the challenges unit owners face when renting their property. Managing a rental property yourself is difficult and time consuming and can expose you to potential scammers who now have your personal contact information. And don’t forget the hassle of dealing with house cleaners, service persons and the task of navigating the bureaucracy of local, county, state and federal regulations, bed taxes, tourist taxes, and the like. And while large corporate entities or internet-only services can deal with some of these issues for you, they will never be able to give you, your properties or your guest the personal attention we can give. We pride ourselves on being a “boutique” type of agency, different from all others on the island. We offer a personal connection to both our owners and guests, and we believe this is the key to our success. Every single property we manage is on Sanibel or Captiva Islands, so our attention is focused on promoting our Islands and your unit only.
So if you are ready to end the hassle of finding qualified tenants, collecting rents, remitting taxes, endless maintenance issues and answering the phone in the middle of the night for emergencies, Select Vacation Properties is your answer. We will maximize your income, manage general upkeep of property, inspections, scheduling cleans and maintenance items all while offering excellent customer service in a process which is seamless for you and your guests.
