“I now have more bookings year-round!”

There is no comparison. Lodgable was solely my source for reservation income, and I had the best season ever, even in-spite of a hurricane, which hit just prior to beginning my peak season. The level of service that I received from Lodgable surpassed every other vacation rental service I’ve ever used, not to mention a 75% occupancy rate in my off-season.

About the host

Bob was a personal injury and trial lawyer for 40 years. He is originally from Maryland, but in 2012 he began training dogs full time and moved to Florida for retirement. Bob purchased a vacation rental property in Bonita Springs. It’s a beautiful place that overlooks the Gulf Coast. He bought a quaint condo, to be used primarily for supplemental income. He was using a property management company to distribute and manage his vacation-rental but was very dissatisfied with their service and performance. He was not seeing the occupancy he knew he should be having.

The solution

He started looking online for a solution and came across Lodgable. Bob activated his condo, to see if the platform really worked. He solely used Lodgable for his distribution, and after 30 days, he could not believe his sudden increase in inquires and bookings. Bob enjoyed the uptick in bookings but especially found the reservation and calendar tools useful. He didn’t want to spend his time behind a keyboard, so the quick access to guest information, status, reservation amounts, and communication, made his hosting experience seamless.

“ Currently I have more bookings, through Lodgable, in my offseason than I did, without Lodgable, last year during my peak season. I used to work solely with a nearby property management firm. They were unresponsive, expensive, and provided me with few bookings. I purchased my condo in Florida, solely to be used as a vacation rental and as a secondary income. Lodgable has been exactly what I needed! ”

The results

Lodgable listed Bob’s property on over 100 booking channels in just a few days. Within that same month, Bob saw most upcoming weeks, booked solid. He now averages a 5-night average length of stay, went from a 15% to 75% occupancy in the offseason, and 60% to 95% occupancy during his peak season. He was even able to raise his nightly rate, without losing bookings. He now profits 76% more revenue than the average one-bedroom rental in the area and has increased his monthly earnings by $1,300 per month. Lodgable has also helped him meet other locals, international travelers, families, couples, and even individuals just traveling for work.

It is up to each individual travel company and/or third party to accept or deny your rental(s) based on their own reasoning. You, not Lodgable, will be required to pay all commissions to such travel companies in exchange for advertising your rentals and/or facilitating bookings.
