Looking to maximise your rental earning potential? Then read on:
Since the beginning of 2014, we have expanded our portfolio of holiday rental properties by marketing villas and apartments in Kalkan owned by other people, in addition to our own highly successful Nur Apartments, which we established in 2006. The quality of service that we provide to our guests has always been important to us and, as we have grown, we have ensured that this remains at a very high standard... and the service we now provide to owners is equally important.
We now have over 70 properties available for rental, but would be happy to talk to additional owners who may be interested in marketing their property under the Kalkan Secrets brand.
What are we looking for?
- Villas and apartments in Kalkan Old Town, Kalkan Centre, Ortaalan, Kalamar Bay, Kiziltas, Kordere, Kisla, Komurluk, Akbel and Islamlar that meet with our standards.
- Well-furnished and above all, well-equipped (we can advise you on this)
- Wi-fi available to guests - this has become mandatory over the last few years
What services do we offer to owners?
We offer a range of services to owners and can tailor them to meet your needs; from just marketing the property and passing on any enquiries, to full rental management (from initial enquiry right through to post-holiday return of security deposit).
New for 2017, we are introducing three categories of listing: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Within these three levels our services include (but are not limited to):
Marketing the property on the Kalkan Secrets website (which features prominently on Google searches etc) and other websites as appropriate including regular blogs, Facebook page and via Twitter
Regular paid-for social media campaigns, electronic mailshots and newsletters to our extensive client/guest list to promote your property
Receiving and responding very promptly to all enquiries; providing a slick booking process, handling booking arrangements efficiently and with customer service as a priority; providing comprehensive secure payment facilities including credit cards and bank transfer (no surcharge to the guest for credit card payments)
Providing an Information Manual for the property, for guests to use during their stay (and emailed to guests in advance)
Arranging, if required, additional guest services such as airport transfers, car hire, trips and excursions
Providing cleaning and laundry services, if required
Liaising with Kalkan Secrets staff or other contractors in Kalkan to ensure that the property is ready for guests
Personal ‘Meet and Greet’ service where appropriate on guests’ arrival; regularly visiting guests during their stay, helping to arrange excursions and trips
Checking property for any damage following guests’ departure, returning Security Deposit (after making deductions if necessary) to guests
Guests are provided with a mobile telephone number to call an English-speaking Kalkan Secrets representative, who is available on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis to respond to guests queries or emergencies
Follow-up to guests’ departure is a feedback form and an invitation to leave a review on the FlipKey/TripAdvisor/Ownersdirect listing
Accounting to the owner on a regular basis for bookings, rental income, bills paid and any costs incurred
Transferring net income to the owner on an agreed timescale
If you are interested in becoming part of the Kalkan Secrets success story, please don't hesitate to contact us by email, on email@example.com or via our contact page.
Bronze (Subscription) service
We understand that many owners want to handle booking enquiries themselves, but are increasingly frustrated and angry with the traditional listing sites such as Ownersdirect and HolidayLettings, and their interference with (and monetisation of) every aspect of the booking process. We now have a sensible and lower-cost alternative, whereby owners can list their property under the Kalkan Secrets website for a flat fee and simply receive enquiries without any further involvement from Kalkan Secrets. This facility is available here.
