Minimum Requirements

When preparing your home for holiday rental there are a few minimum requirements the property needs to meet prior to being listed with Getaway Mornington Peninsula. Please note these are minimum standards for all of our properties and if a property doesn't meet these requirements, we will be unable to manage the listing.

KEYS

 

3 full sets of keys (including remotes) to be provided, key cutting is an additional cost where we are to arrange. We recommend you install a lock box for afterhours arrivals.

SPRING CLEAN

 

It is essential that a property be professionally cleaned and maintained after the property is listed for Holiday Rental. This ensures last minute bookings can be taken which in turn will maximise your income. If your property is not used very often it is necessary to have an automatic air freshener to avoid the house from becoming musky.

PERSONAL ITEMS

 

The property must be left free of personal effects such as photographs, letters or items of sentimental value.
