Vacation Rental Managers: Establishing Your Brand in a Competitive Landscape

Hawaii Vacation Rentals Logo with TM

I recently had the opportunity to give a keynote on the importance of Brand at a regional conference in the Pacific Northwest. There were over 50 vacation rental brands represented at this conference. It was rewarding to hear these brands talk about what makes their destinations so unique to the traveler. As VRM’s ourselves, we have been on a mission these past few years to highlight these attributes to the traveling public regardless of where they are in the sales cycle. What has been lacking in the market has been sites that work on behalf of these professionals hosts. One that does not attempt to force you to capitulate to their demands, connects the travelers directly to your brand, does not hide guests emails, and respects your contribution to the ecosystem. We are pleased to announce the pre release of Fetchmyvr.

Connecting Travelers Direct to Well Established Brands

Fetchmyvr connects travelers directly to Professional Hosts seamlessly. Travelers have come to expect an elevated level of service from professional brands who are committed to a successful vacation rental experience. Smart Travelers know they can book vacation rentals direct and save hundreds to thousands of dollars in “Fees” from brokers. We don’t believe that should stop.

As part of the Fetch My Guest Marketing Automation Platform™, Fetchmyvr provides the Professional Hosts the ability to present their brands direct to the traveler while having complete control of the booking process. Professional Hosts now have another distribution point that advocates on behalf of their brand. Providing a win-win for the traveler and the Professional Hosts.

We look forward to building our network of Professional Hosts who understand the value of communicating through their respective Brands.

Industry Experts and Professional Hosts Agree!

Pattie Freeman and Hawaii Vacation Rentals Vacation Rental Program

IMG_0575

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO HAWAII VACATION RENTALS, property management and vacation rental program. HVR has developed highly specialized systems and policies with the goal of maximizing the rental potential of each property in the program. Our programs have been developed to accommodate the needs of a wide variety of owners, guests and properties.

Each area of our program has been summarized in the following pages. After you have reviewed each of these items, please feel welcome to call and discuss any areas in which you may have questions.

COMPANY BACKGROUND

We are in the business of managing properties for the purpose of offering it to visitors and residents of the Big Island. It is therefore our mission to owners of properties to provide superior management services that will maximize the income potential of their properties. It is through satisfied guests that everyone’s interests are best served. Our goal is to operate under a win-win philosophy. What is good for guests must also be good for owners of the property and must be good for the interests of HVR. All parties must receive sufficient value for their efforts, investment and dollars spent, to remain a satisfied participant. As a homeowner represented by HVR you will be in partnership in operating your business. “Winning at the expense of someone losing isn’t partnership and isn’t sustainable. Think win-win and long-term growth.”

HVR has been providing exceptional management services on the Kohala Coast since 1985. The business started with a local real estate agent who was asked by a few of her clients to maintain and rent their properties when they were not in residence. In 1994 Patricia Freeman purchased the business. Patricia’s (most call her Pattie) background was selling luxury properties on the island of Oahu. First class service is what her Owner’s and Guests have come to expect.

Some of the comments from Pattie’s guests are “We credit Pattie Freeman, owner of Hawaii Vacation Rentals for making our repeat stays intimate, relaxing experiences. Her homes are filled with amenities from corkscrews to beach towels and beach chairs. We appreciate Pattie’s attention to detail. She also makes sure her guests have what they need. If you want daily maid service, she’ll arrange it. If you completely want to be left alone, she makes sure you have peace and quiet.”

“Pattie Freeman, Real Estate Broker has a unique, friendly way of helping you find your perfect vacation rental property or a home of your very own. Her attention to detail and genuine interest in what you are seeking as your dream come true are just a few of the reasons her guests, owners, buyers and sellers like to work with her. She is available for real estate consultation as well as assisting with your sell or purchase.”

The Vacation Rental Industry is growing each year as travelers discover the thrill and comfort of staying in a home or condo rather than resorts and hotels. In order to be the very best that we can be and offer the most professional service, we maintain memberships with the National Association of Realtors, Hawaii Island Board of Realtors, Hawaii Visitor’s Bureau, National Association of Residential Property Manager’s, Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce, Eco Tourism of Hawaii and the Vacation Rental Manager’s Association. Pattie believes in giving back to the community as well, and is often times found on committees in the community to help with local projects.

Our philosophy is simple – We want to personally know the preference of accommodations for each guest. Then we can provide the best home, services and setting for an ideal vacation. We allow the dolphins, whales, turtles, sunsets and Hawaii to take care of the rest. We want to personally know the preferences of each owner and strive to do the very best to accommodate their wishes while keeping our services and care of the properties up to very high standards. This sometimes requires standardizing of some of our procedures; however we will do our best to facilitate any special requirements you may have as much as possible.

Plenty of lounge chairs around the pool to hang in and enjoy your Hawaiian days of relaxing, swimming, snorkeling , walking , or just sitting on the lounge chairs provided.

This tropical oasis is a wonderful place to spend a family vacation. Located in the Mauna Lani Resort area, the Villages are conveniently located near the town center of Mauna Lani.

Almost all the activities, restaurants, stores, and amenities at the Resort can be accessed using the links to the The Shops at Mauna Lani, the Mauna Lani Resort, and the Fairmont Orchid Resort provided below. Additional resort specific information follows the links.

The Shops at Mauna Lani
Mauna Lani Resort

Fairmont Orchid

Napua at Mauna Lani Beach Club — Open for lunch daily, 11 am to 4 pm. Open for dinner, 5 pm to 9 pm, but check, as days are seasonal. Usually closed for dinner on Mondays. 808-885-5910. Good fish tacos and fish and chips for lunch. Reservations recommended.

Petroglyphs – Petroglpyhs are ancient Hawaiian carvings on lava stone. The Malama Petroglyph Trail is a1-1/2 mile round trip hike that takes you through the Puako Petroglyph Archeological District, maybe five minutes from our entrance. The walk takes about 25 minutes. It is right next to Holoholo Kai Beach Park and they share the same parking lot. The Park has a comfort station, water, and grass and tables for a picnic, and a great ocean view.

The Park and Malama Trail are open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and the access gates are closed tight at 6:30 pm, so watch your time or walk home. BUT BE ADVISED: wear shoes on the trail. Thorns from the kiawe trees are sharp and wicked. No shoes mean really hurt feet. Wear a hat. And take water with you. It can get very hot in the afternoon, so an early morning walk is suggested. And yes, it is worth the effort.

Take N. Kaniku Drive towards the Fairmont Orchid (left turn from our entrances). Turn right just before the entrance to Fairmont and that road will end at the parking lot.

Kalahuipua’a Historical Park and Trails – Just south of The Shops and on the road to the Mauna Lani Spa, this is a short walk to the fishponds. The park is open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm. The parking lot has a comfort station. You should wear shoes and a hat, and take water with you.

A two minute drive from our entrance. Take the first left past The Shops. It is the road to the Mauna Lani Spa. Take the first right into the park’s parking lot. The gate is closed and locked at 6:30 pm.

Historic Fishponds – This is a leisurely walk between the Mauna Lani Resort and the Baby Beach. It is a must see. An easy walk, tennis shoes are nice, but you can get away with sandals or flip flops if this is the only place you are walking.

Honoka’ope Beach (aka 49 Black Sands Beach) an out of the way public beach located within the 49 Black Sands Beach gated community. The only amenities are a comfort station in the parking lot and a small shower at the beach. So, you need to take food, water, beach mats, etc. The beach is a short 2 minute walk from the parking lot. It is quiet and only gets a crowd on holidays and weekends, but even then it is not usually “crowded.” If the wind is up, and the sea choppy, swimming can be a challenge. But otherwise a very nice beach

Easy to get to. On the way to the Beach Club, take the second left past the circle. There is a marker on the right side of the road that says “Shoreline Access.” You are going through a gated community so you must check in with the security guard and give your name and a phone number, and your car license is written down.

Hiking – If you really want to hike, you can take the Beach Access Trail. It goes from Puako in the north, past Holoholo Kai Beach Park, The Orchid, The Mauna Lani, through the Fishponds and Baby Beach, around Mauna Lani Point, to Honoka’ope Beach in the south. The portion from the fishpond to Honoka’ope Beach is the ancient Ala Kahakai trail and takes about an hour, but the scenery is great.
