BEWARE OF Billion Dollar Off-Shore Vacation Rental Companies
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
These Off-Shore Companies are strictly "Middlemen", trying to take over the whole Vacation Rental business, forcing we Rental Property Owners to pay
additional fees (which we must then pass on to you!).
WHAT ADDITIONAL FEES?
Under the guise of "protecting" you from internet scams and frauds, they try to entice you to pay all rental fees (including Deposits), directly to
their Off-Shore Banks, forcing the actual rental property OWNERS to pay them (and charge YOU) an extra 6% (or more) handling charge.
BUT SO WHAT?
These Off-Shore Companies prevent you from emailing the rental property owners directly, trying to force you to pass all discussions through them.
They discourage you from directly interfacing with the Owners, they try to be your primary contact.
BUT SO WHAT?
Wait until you actually arrive here for your Vacation. Who will answer your questions and concerns? Who will you work with to resolve the issues that
often come up when you are renting a PRIVATELY OWNED LOCAL PROPERTY. Only then, as you try to resolve your issues with their recently hired "agent"
2,000 miles away on a no-name island, will you start to realize whom you should have booked through.
WHAT IS YOUR ALTERNATIVE?
SIMPLE: shop for your "Vacation Rental" only with the LOCAL ACTUAL PROPERTY OWNERS and/or their local authorized Agents. All of the websites HERE are
owned and managed by actual SIESTA KEY property owners. You'll have a much better chance of getting a "DEAL", interfacing DIRECTLY with these owners or
their agents who are physically located RIGHT HERE ON SIESTA KEY (Not thousands of miles away on some foreign island).
