Self-Management Is Hard Work

Managing your property yourself is hard work: you need an 800-number for reservations, a reservationist, a website, and you should be prepared to invest in advertising. It can be challenging to provide quick solutions if you are not a local resident and your property has issues with plumbing, electrical, or air conditioning. Not to mention the responsibilities of record keeping, accounting procedures, and licensing. Royal Shell Vacations will take care of it all, making it easy for you!

Professional Help Does It For You

The other option, registering your property with a professional management and rental agent, starts to look pretty good, doesn’t it? Of course, not all rental and management agents are equally good. But rather than dwell on other’s negatives, let us tell you about the advantages of registering your property with Royal Shell Vacations.

Successful Growth

We are a professional rental and management company with a successful track record and happy owners that have been with us for years. In that time, we have found that both our owners and our rental customers are extremely pleased with their treatment at Royal Shell, some even refer to it as “The Royal Treatment!”

Effective Marketing

As the Best Vacation Rental Company in the area, we hire a professional advertising firm to help us with our marketing. This is an example of our how our dollars work for you! Our dedicated advertising professionals keep track of the best places and times to advertise, the best appeals at any point in time, what our competition is up to, and generally how we can invest for the best return in terms of reservations booked.

Chamber Membership

You will find us in the obvious places, such as the Sanibel-Captiva Visitors Guide, the Chamber Welcome Center and the Chamber website. We are long-standing members and have built lasting relationships with the Chamber, and we know that potential visitors see our messages. Because we are Chamber members you don’t have to be and that is another cost that we can absorb for you.

No Marketing Fees

We provide professional marketing with no marketing fees. You only pay us our standard commission when your property is rented, as well as cover the cost of special offers that we put together so that a guest in your property can rent a bike or a canoe, or take a cruise at discount rates.

Online Booking 24/7

We offer 24/7 online booking services. Anyone who sees an ad, surfs the Web or just gets a middle of the night inspiration can go to our website and make a reservation on the spot. Anyone who would prefer to make a reservation via phone can call our toll-free line at 1-800-656-9111 and get information or reservations during normal business hours. Reserving a getaway has never been easier!

Nine Offices

We have nine offices throughout Lee and Collier Counties. Our convenient locations allow our renters to choose the location closer to their vacation home to pick up their keys, and recreation information. Our helpful staff will be there to ask questions and assist walk-ins for last minute reservations.

Professional Rental Management

We provide every owner with top-drawer professional management, including post-rental inspections, cleaning, linen service, appliance and utility maintenance and on-call service people if a tenant has a problem that needs immediate attention.

Reliable Maintenance and Cleaning

Because our maintenance staff and cleaning people are “in-house,” we know that we are providing “hotel quality” services. Our linens are laundered and supplied from our in-house facility, so we will always have the necessary supplies on hand.

Large Repeat Customer Base

As one of the largest and most successful rental management firms in Southwest Florida, we have hundreds of customers who return to stay with our owners every year. It’s reassuring that we don’t have to reach and “teach” new people about Royal Shell each year. Even in slow times, and everyone has them from time to time, our repeat customers give us an edge.

Why Not Talk To Us?

In short, we can’t think of any reason why anyone who is serious about renting their condo or home (with maximum occupancy and maximum care for the place) would register with anyone else. We invite you to call us, check out our Web site or stop in one of our offices to talk about how we can serve you.
