Venture Found Vacation Rentals was started in 2013 by Nicholas and Ashley Borst, after multiple years of working in the hospitality business. We grew the business with the following principles at the core of their philosophy.
Locally Owned AND Operated—
Venture Found Vacation Rentals is owned and operated by Destin, FL locals. Nicholas handles the property management and marketing of the business, while Ashley is responsible for property design and guest relations. Both Nicholas and Ashley have multiple years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry–specifically in the vacation rental business. Inspired to better serve the guest and the owner, Venture Found Vacation Rentals started in 2013. By valuing quality over quantity, Venture Found Vacation Rentals can provide a hands-on approach that most other Destin FL vacation rental property management companies cannot.
Property Management…Done Right—
Venture Found Vacation Rentals has a vacation rental and property management program unlike any other. Our property management program has a model that has proven successful with occupancy at nearly 75% across all rentals, considerably higher than the industry average. How do we do this?
- Professional photos & staging—Each property has been expertly staged and photographed by a professional. All properties will be featured using overhead drone shots and state-of-the-art 360° guided walkthroughs.
- Dynamic Pricing & Comps—We use industry leading software that utilizes algorithms and dynamic pricing to capture the highest rental rate during all seasons
- Skilled Staff—Venture Found Vacation Rentals has a skilled set of handymen, cleaners, inspectors and customer support staff to ensure a positive guest experience
- Innovative marketing and advertising–Venture Found Vacation Rentals have a unique marketing and advertising approach that turns potential clients into revenue generating guests including SEO that runs with Google, Bing and is integrated with our software system. To reach as many potential guests as possible, we also partner with hundreds of booking agents including HomeAway, Airbnb, TripAdvisor and many more!
- Superior Housekeeping and Maintenance—A well-maintained property will yield the highest rental rates. At Venture Found Vacation Rentals we conduct routine inspections of each property, addressing any need immediately. We also visit each property at check-in and check-out to be sure each rental is in top condition. We have nearly 500 reviews with an average rating of 4.73 stars out of 5!
- Charge a reasonable and fair fee—Our goal is to maximize profits for the owner. In an effort to accomplish this goal, we charge reasonable management fees and cut out the dreaded “nickel and dime” approach of so many other management companies. Our charges are clearly defined to the owner AND the guest, eliminating any questionable charges.
- Communication—We believe that communication is a vital part of the owner/manager relationship. This is why Venture Found Vacation Rentals sends communication regarding rental activity, maintenance issues and monthly statements.
