Why Choose Us For Encinitas Property Managment Over Out-Of-Market Competitors?
When you are choosing a company you are going to trust to manage your vacation rental, with Haustay you are choosing founders who are invested in your success. Nick & Elisa Foster, the founders of Haustay Vacation Rentals, will personally oversee the management of your Encinitas vacation rental and their success depends on the success of your property!
When engaging an out-of-market property manager not headquartered in North County San Diego, you will typically be working with a company that will assign you an employee to manage your property. We recently had a Solana Beach property owner switch from one of the bigger companies to our boutique sized firm because they were assigned four employees in one year. The property owner got tired of having to re-educate employees time and time again due to turnover in the property management company. They switched to Haustay because they wanted to work with principals who could provide them a consistent peace-of-mind service. Removing the anxiety and worry of who is actually managing their property.
Property Owner Testimonials
Haustay are ALL STARS!!! Honestly, no one ever wants to have to research getting a new Property Manager, but Nick and his team have made this a painless task. I was looking to drive up rental income on my vacation rental property in Carlsbad and contacted Nick and his team. The pandemic gave me more time in my schedule than usual and I was able to meet Nick at the rental property shortly after our first contact. His professionalism, attention to detail and projections for revenue sold me on using Haustay immediately. Since then I have been impressed every step of the way. Nick and Elisa are a solid ownership team all with different strengths that, combined, make for a winning Team. Their knowledge of how to best position your property for short term vacation rental success is superior and they have been instrumental in guiding me how best to set up the property, marketing the property and driving revenue. They are a FULL SERVICE, one stop shop for Property Management that pays attention to the details. Thank you for your support and help Haustay, I couldn't have asked for more!
When I decided to rent out my property as a full time vacation rental a friend referred me to Nick and Haustay Vacation Rentals. I am happy that we made the connection. Haustay as over delivered on my expectations of the financial performance of my property. So much so I purchased a second property for Haustay to manage. You will not regret having Haustay manage your vacation rental!
My husband and I purchased an oceanfront condo in Solana Beach in 2019 and we hired the largest vacation rental property manager in San Diego (not Haustay) to manage our property. After a year under their management we were unhappy. Their constant employee turnover, inconsistent cleaning quality, and sub-par revenue performance led us to seek out new management. We interviewed a few managers and ultimately went with Haustay and we have been very happy with their performance. They make sure our property is well maintained for, they have been out performing our previous manager in monthly revenue, and are easy to work with. We would highly recommend Haustay Vacation Rentals to any property owner looking for a reliable property manager who you can trust.
I have been very happy with Haustay Vacation Rentals and how they have managed my property. They keep me informed of any maintenance needed at the property, they fix things promptly, and really it has saved me so much time and stress. Having Haustay manage my property has freed up my time to do more things I enjoy without having to worry about my real estate. Haustay does an excellent job attracting bookings and providing a quality experience to guests.
I've been a landlord for almost 40 years but completely new to the vacation rental market. Decided to give it a try in Oceanside with our newly purchased condo. My local realtor lives next to Nick and Elisa and made the introduction. Our goal was to get this on the market within 45 days of purchase. Nick gave us a list of items to curate the condo, and we followed it to the letter. The amenities suggested make us stand out from others. We were up and running within our target goal and now have 31, 5 star reviews, and averaging over 70% occupancy.
Being an out-of-state owner we have peace of mind and comfort knowing HAUSTAY is handling everything, and we have been absolutely thrilled!!! Our place has a great location near the beach etc with all the cool amenities, so do many others, but what makes our place special is Nick and Elisa's attention to guest details. Almost every review mentions them and how happy they are with their stay. We had not been down here for 9 months and just returned for a winter stay. The place was as clean and neat as we left it. The cleaning crew has not left a crumb or spec of dust, immaculate care!
We considered much larger firms to handle this property and not one of them could offer the touch we get from HAUSTAY.
I previously had a large vacation rental management company manage my oceanfront home. I found my property was lost in their portfolio and both the property and I were not getting the attention we deserved. I started seeking out new management and I am very happy I found Nick and Haustay Vacation Rentals. They have been very professional to work with, the transition in management was not as difficult as I anticipated, and I feel my house is now in better hands with more attentive managers than before. Nick is so much more responsive than the prior managers who seemed to favor their owned properties.
I would not hesitate to recommend Nick and his team at Haustay Vacation Rentals to other property owners seeking qualified, professional, vacation rental management.
