The aim was to help the quizzee find the ideal property management service.When I had finished, having selected the options I felt to be essential to any vacation rental owner support services, I ended up with a list of requirements. These provide a great checklist for any aspiring vacation rental owner seeking support services to help run his property. So I thought I’d share them with you:

- A service that allows any staff such as a housekeeper to have necessary limited access to the property information and data
- A service that provides customer relations management tools to communicate with my guests
- A service which enables me to offer my guests extra services including tours and welcome packs
- A service that can provide customized reports on various aspects of my business to help with decision making.
