Cotswolds Spa Holidays Limited has been operating as a disclosed agent managing holiday lets for owners at Lower Mill Estate since late 2011.
The business is run by Kasha Grimes who has owned a property on Clearwater since 2004 and therefore has a very comprehensive understanding of the market for letting second homes within the Cotswold Water Park.
Frequently Asked Questions
How are your fees structured?
We attempt to offer a very transparent commission-based business model i.e. the more revenue we generate for the owner the more commission we generate for ourselves, the only additional payments we levy is a £60 booking fee and a z bed or pet supplement charge which goes directly to our cleaners.
Do you levy management fees?
There are already numerous costs associated with owning a second home at these gated developments, so we attempt to mitigate these as much as possible by not adding any further management fees or other mark ups for overseeing tradesmen and handymen to carry out the inevitable day to day repairs that are required to keep the property in good order.
What occupancy levels do you achieve?
Most of our owner’s use their properties themselves for their own personal use and only let out their properties to help defray the not inconsiderable costs of running a second home. We require a minimum level of availability to justify and defray our own costs of advertising, marketing, photography, administration etc. and it is also worth noting that the more unique the property and the earlier the availability is released the greater the chance of successfully letting it.
Notwithstanding the above we have some owners who rarely use their properties themselves and are therefore able to offer high levels of availability and for the right property we can achieve a superior level of bookings compared to our rivals and we anticipate this trend to continue for the foreseeable future partly as a result of our transparent business model and increasing levels of returning customers.
