Vacation Home Property Management Services

As a property owner, you deserve to have the best company represent your home and interests. Country Club Rentals, Inc. has been a household for a dozen years. We pride ourselves in offering our owners piece of mind in knowing that, while rented, their home is being cared for with the utmost concern for their investment. Our company’s mission is to provide the highest degree of service when an owner places their home in our rental program. We have all the necessary tools to ensure that, while occupied by a renter, both the owner’s needs are met and the guest’s issues are handled expeditiously and with precise care. We have a highly-qualified handyman available to address issues with skill and detail. In addition, we have long-standing relationships with all the necessary vendors to provide immediate attention to every possible issue. Responsiveness to our guests helps to enhance their vacation experience. We provide a balance between providing necessary maintenance and upkeep and generating a solid rental income.

We have the experience to know what guests are looking for in their vacation rental. We pride ourselves in being able to educate our owners on what is necessary to maximize their investment income. We have established a partnership with our owners such that they have come to trust our recommendations. This partnership creates an environment that keeps our guest returning year after year. Our returning guests know they will only need to bring their suitcase because the homes in our program have all the comforts of their own home.

We are proud of our hands-on approach when working with each guest. Reservations are not made on-line because we care about helping them find the vacation home of their dreams. We realize that they have chosen Fort Myers for their vacation destination over many other places in the country and we want to make sure they come back year after year. Although Mother Nature has provided the sunny weather, we provide the sunny disposition that enhances the vacation experience of all our guests.

We have maintained a wonderful relationship not only with each country club but also with the many Associations currently in place for the over 165 properties in our program. We advertise on the internet as well as on social media. We can also be found in the local newspaper, The News Press, as well as local venues. In addition, annual rentals are advertised in the MLS system. We provide a state-of-the-art website for not only our guests to find their dream vacation property but also as a vessel to provide owners a portal to view up to the minute statements as well as a year-end accounting statement for their property. We remain current in our knowledge of local laws and market conditions and are always available to answer any questions you may have. We collect and submit the sales and bed tax to the state and country agencies on your behalf. Additionally, while the property is rented, we provide necessary required repairs and ensure payment is issued. Country Club Rentals has had a long-standing relationship with a large organization who leases over 20 properties each season. Our expertise and attention to detail has kept them coming back to us for over twelve years. We can truly say that we have become friends with many of our returning guests! We would love the opportunity to discuss our rentals services with you. If you are in the early stages and are thinking about investing, we would be pleased to lend our expertise to assist you in the purchase of a home. Although we have over 165 properties, we are still able to address our owners and guests concerns no matter how small. We are all licensed Realtors and look forward to the opportunity to tell you all that southwest Florida has to offer you as a homeowner!

Our vision is to continue to provide the quality and care necessary to keep you in the Country Club Rentals family for years to come! We appreciate the trust our owners have in us and hope you too will consider contacting us. Please call today for you own personal consultation on how Country Club Rentals can help you with either a furnished seasonal property or your unfurnished home to be marketed as an annual rental.
