Diaz Beach Property Management

Do you have an apartment or property in Diaz Beach that you wish to capitalize on by renting it out to guests or want to convert to an Airbnb and not sure where to start? We want your property and will help you to get your investment generating extra income!

We can assist you from start to finish to get your side business going and start generating extra income. The holiday accommodation market is very competitive, yet booming and a STR business could just be what you need if managed smartly, correctly and confidently. Guests love authentic holiday experiences that offer value for money, quality accommodation and personalized service and we are here to help you on your holiday rental journey.

Bigger Rental firms, Franchises and Large Property Management Companies comes with watered down service, meaning you get money in the bank, but are stuck with unhappy guests, leading to negative reviews and unpleasant guest experiences, thus we keep our very selective portfolio small to ensure that our owners and guests get the premium service and individualized care they deserve. We offer local (Mossel Bay) Holiday Rental Property Management services including the full management of your Rental, Bookings management, marketing, administrative function, welcoming and seeing guests off personally and cleaning services with guest amenities included - All you need under one roof. We take a 10% - 15% commission on all bookings as remuneration with cleaning services excluded, charged from R550 - R650 per day depending on the property size.

All properties must be made available to guests on a short term holiday rental basis for at least 12 consecutive months on our portfolio (Sole Mandate - Coastal Hospitality Property Management will have exclusive rights to manage, market and rent the property). We unfortunately do not take on properties for seasonal letting only, in order for us to make it as financially feasible as possible for both the host and the owner.
