Property Management

"Property Management Built for You."

Emerald Coast property management is competitive—especially vacation rental property management. It makes sense: the vacation rental industry has seen jaw-dropping growth (2x the growth of the travel sector in general!), with more projected.

As a homeowner looking for a property management company for your second home or rental investment, you have your pick of companies. We'd say you're lucky to have options, but we also know it's tough to be confident in your final decision.

Let us tell you a little bit about Salty Escapes, and what makes us different.

We're Boutique. Property management companies range from small mom-and-pops to the Big Guys with thousands of properties. Salty Escapes falls on the "small" end of the spectrum and we like it that way. We want to know our homeowners (and their families) by name, and to make your goals our goals. That means:

We're Forward-Thinking. Just because we're small doesn't mean we aren't mighty. We have decades of experience in hospitality and property management. We know and understand the latest technology to streamline guest stays and marketing strategies to help you book more nights at your property. Like:

We Offer Professional Hospitality. With us, the guest experience is far from an afterthought. It's our reason for being! Many property management companies will take the booking dollars and disappear; we strive to create a perfect experience for guests, beginning to end. That includes:

No Hidden Fees. Destin property management fees can be very high...and very misleading. At Salty Escapes, we clearly outline our simple and transparent fee structure and never stray from it. 

What Does Vacation Property Management Mean to Us?

It was 10:30 p.m.—at the height of peak season at my property management job before Salty Escapes—when my phone rang.

A guest, calling about a mysterious and ongoing beeping noise at his vacation rental. Mystified, I leapt out of bed to troubleshoot. Smoke detector? Appliance with a timer? HVAC system? Nope, nope, and nope. With two kids asleep, I couldn’t leave home, but I was determined to find a solution.

Time to phone a friend. I dialed my go-to maintenance partner and within 15 minutes, he arrived at the guest’s home to take a listen. Then he burst into laughter, still on the phone with me.

The culprit? A board game buzzer, lodged out of sight in the guest's own suitcase.

We all shared a sigh of relief (and a laugh). Most importantly, our guests enjoyed the rest of their stay.

We look back fondly on that memory. In part because it ended well, and in part because you won't find situations like that in any other industry but vacation rentals (and we like it that way). But it also shows the way we approach all of our guest relations—with care and concern, swift attention, and a dash of light-heartedness.
