The Smart Stays Advantage
Smart Stays makes maximizing your revenue easier than any other booking platform. The market for vacation rentals is a saturated one, meaning you need a partner who will get you to the widest customer base possible. However, we understand that often vacation rental property owners don’t have the time to invest in large-scale marketing strategies to promote their property. That is where Smart Stays comes in.
For the homeowner it is simple: you list your property with Smart Stays, and then we get to work. We have a wide customer base that we are experts in reaching. We often see guests broken into four categories: international holiday travellers, large corporate companies booking a retreat, individuals travelling on work assignments, and guests that are relocating and require a more long-term stay solution. We position your property in front of the largest portion of our customer base as possible to drive interest. You will quickly see the demand for your vacation rental property rise, and the number of unused dates available in a year diminishes.
How do we reach these customers? We are the market leaders for the vacation rental market. We understand the market, and we have the leading technology to reach new customers as well as an established base of connections and past travellers that we can rely on. In order for us to reach holiday travellers coming internationally, we partner with over 400 worldwide travel industry partners to help us reach many international markets. Our partners include consumer trusted names, such as TripAdvisor and HomeAway. We ensure that there is no lost opportunity for your property to be seen by potential guests.
We are also experts in running successful digital marketing campaigns to promote your property. As part of our property management package, our homeowners receive unparalleled marketing for their property. This includes effective Google and social media pay-per-click campaigns to promote all of our properties. Not only are we experts in reaching new customers, but we also have an established base of Smart Stays repeat customers and social media, as well as a database of over 1 million contacts and previous travellers that trust Smart Stays and enjoy staying in Smart Stays vacation rental properties.
We are also committed to maximum transparency with you in regards to your investment. To ensure you have a full understanding of what is happening in regards to your investment, Smart Stays offers monthly financial reporting and industry insider sharing and ongoing reporting. With these reports, you can closely track the return that you are seeing on your investment. We also offer 24-hour per day traveller assistance. Every guest who books your property will be completely taken care of, without you having to be involved.

Maximum Renter Visibility
Let us help you list your property smarter. In a saturated market, getting your property listing in front of as many potential renters as possible is the best way to fill up your unused dates. Doing this on your own is a daunting, time-consuming task. At Smart Stays, we have a number of partnerships that allow us to push your property listing to a number of booking sites for maximum visibility.
Our booking partners include renter trusted names, like Tripadvisor, Home Away, Booking.com, and Expedia. We partner with platforms that meet potential renters where they are, giving your property the opportunity to be seen by a number of potential renters who may otherwise miss your vacation rental. Available, unused dates for your rental property will become a thing of the past.
At Smart Stays, we offer a growth focused investor program. As you begin to see income generated from owning a vacation rental property, the Smart Stays Investor Program will assist you in developing a scalable investment strategy that will grow your investment portfolio. Our focus for your portfolio is to maximize long-term growth opportunities, and minimizing your overall investment.
As you embark on this strategy, there are significant benefits to having experts in the vacation rental market in your corner. Smart Stays understand what investments will be profitable, and how to generate revenue from a property.
Comprehensive Financial Reporting
The proof of success is in the numbers. We know that, and we are metric oriented in our reporting approach. We strive to provide our homeowners with extensive reporting that is based on the individual homeowner’s chronological preference, to assist in planning your short, medium, and long-term goals or exit strategy.
In our financial reporting, we include a complete financial analysis of the state of your property. This includes forecasting metrics for the future and presenting an analysis of the present metrics. This helps you in understanding your current revenue and your revenue expectations for the future.
We help our homeowners to maximize their revenue from their vacation rental property. In our partnerships with property owners, we have worked with them closely to see increases of 30-40% greater revenue on a yearly basis.
We see this increased revenue as a result of our diversified demographic of customers that Smart Stays helps to reach. We have an existing database of repeat former guests, many of whom are from the financial world. Our contacts are typically higher spending than the average guests that property owners are able to reach on their own. By elevating the calibre of guests that book your property, you are able to charge more on a per-night basis and drive revenue as a result.
Our Rental Properties
We serve a high-paying, elevated group of customers with our vacation rental properties. As a result, we are careful to ensure that every
home we list fits to within one of two categories: our Deluxe listings and our Premium listings.
Our Deluxe properties are ideal for extended-stay guests and short term rental guests who seek a luxurious feel that doesn’t break the bank. For our Deluxe properties, we still require that the home have unique characteristics that would work to ensure that any potential guest’s next trip still feels luxurious.
Our Premium Listings are staying, elevated. All of our Premium vacation rental properties offer stand out features that set them apart, from full executive kitchens to pools. Homes that qualify for our Premium category are priced and marketed to meet the demand of very high paying customers looking for vacation homes that still offer the luxury hotel feel.
