Trailblazing

As pioneers in the luxury market, Unique Home Stays has led the way for more than a decade. From our humble beginnings as a true ‘cottage start-up business’, we have evolved to become a respected well-established brand with more than 160 unique luxury properties. Whilst expansion of our luxury property portfolio is key, in growing the business we will not compromise on the unique personal standards and service that our brand promises. In only inviting properties to join our portfolio that provide the 'hall marks' of a unique home stay, we have established a loyal repeat client base who trust us to deliver. These unique qualities and focus on properties which are beyond the norm ensure high booking levels across our whole portfolio. Maintaining a high level of service ensures we command a tariff that is up to 40% higher than other agents can procure for you.

When you become a Unique Home Stays owner, you will join an exclusive club of dedicated owners who go the extra mile to ensure their property is a cut above the rest. It is integral to us that you receive nothing but the very best service from us; as well as having a dedicated Home Stay Specialist as your main point of contact and to handle all enquiries and bookings for your property, our marketing department works hard on your behalf to deliver a powerful marketing strategy for your home.

Easy Booking

Our aim is to maximise bookings for your property and our easy to use online booking system ensures that, even when the office is closed, clients can book your home at their leisure (an option that 67% of clients opted to use in 2015). From bankers to architects, doctors to grandparents; whilst our client base is varied, the one thing that unites them is that time is precious. Of course there’s always a friendly voice at the end of the phone for those clients who prefer to speak to one of the team for guidance in terms of the best property for their break.

For you, the owner, we also make the booking and administration process as simple as possible. We notify you or your housekeeper of every booking, to ensure that you are up to date, as well as providing you with a detailed breakdown of each party so that you are confident that every stay will run smoothly.

We excel in marketing and generating high booking levels for your unique home. Please note, we do not undertake any property management as part of this. If you are unable to manage the property yourself, we would ask that you appoint a housekeeper to take on this responsibility. In our experience, a loyal private housekeeper is preferable (rather than a housekeeping agency), as they will take more pride in personally looking after your beloved home and offer a consistent point of contact. We can help you to find the perfect housekeeper for your property if you do not currently have one in mind.

It’s the Small Things...

We like to make things as easy as possible for our owners, yet ensure all the added extras are in place for a client’s stay. From the ‘luxury nibbles’ welcome hamper that is provided for every guest, to the in-depth insider guide to your property and local area which we email to every guest, we go the extra mile to ensure that we’re creating a great start to the holiday for your guests. Year on year a large percentage of bookings is generated by repeat clients – a trend which continues to grow year on year thanks to our tailored marketing strategies and understanding that building a meaningful long-term relationship with customers is vital.
