If you’re planning on getting out of the city this winter, you’re not alone. Whether you’ll be spending winter down south or traveling, Jayne McCaw of Jayne’s Luxury Rentals suggests putting your city property to good use while you’re gone.
Jayne’s Luxury Rentals is Ontario’s leader in luxury property rentals, with a portfolio of over 350 properties between Muskoka, the Kawarthas, Collingwood, and Toronto, offering a personal touch that includes concierge services, 24/7 customer service, and other luxurious add-ons like gym equipment, spa services, shopping, and airport services.
Unlike simple short-term rental providers that do little to screen clients, Jayne’s turn-key rental approach protects property owners, while providing guests a five-star vacation experience.
“Many of our owners never would have considered renting their high-value properties before we entered the market, and now they are referring their friends to our program.”
Extended staysWhile the minimum stay at most short-term rental companies is only a few days, Jayne’s urban properties have a minimum rental period of one month. Most rentals are one to two months and are often extended.
“Our urban guests include those doing renovations to their own home who want to stay in the area. Others are here for business or film productions. We take a personal approach to our guest selection process. We want to match our owners with the best guests, and vice versa,” says Jayne.
Jayne’s guests go through an extensive screening process before being allowed to book a rental. Once the rental is reserved, a substantial security deposit is taken for complete peace of mind.
White linen program
Before guests arrive, the property is given what Jayne calls the “white linen program” – a hotel quality linen replacement, so you don’t have to worry about others sleeping in your sheets. “For the quality of the rentals we provide, we know our guests expect weekly cleaning, which is included in our service. This also helps us keep an eye on our owners’ properties.”
Once the guests leave, Jayne’s team will impeccably clean and inspect the property to ensure it is returned in perfect order.
“We’re not just a rental company,” says Jayne. “We’re creating an experience for our guests, and a worry-free rental service for our owners.”
This approach has been a soaring success for Jayne, as she’s seen a 70 percent return rate among guests over the years and over 700 bookings this year.
While Jayne has been renting properties in Toronto for several years, her team is looking to grow their portfolio with unique luxury properties throughout the city.
“If you’ll be away this winter and are looking for a great way to generate extra income while keeping your property occupied, give us a call.”
If you have a property in Florida, Jayne’s service could be right for you too.
“We already have property in Florida. If you have a property and want to rent, let us help you.”
