The first step in joining the ShareMyCasa team is to undergo an online orientation and consultation so that we could guide you on what services we can offer. We’ll also discuss your business plan and other important details such as your guest preference and target market.
Apart from guiding you on how to redesign your available spaces, we’ll also answer questions that you may have regarding what you’ll need to officially start your rental service.
Both creativity and precision are required to ensure the success of your listed property. A listing strategy is what we’ll help you come up with so that we could start marketing your property on different booking platforms. All the details we’ll be posting come from the information you’ve presented during consultations.

Our priority is always to make sure that guests are treating your property with respect, which is why we make it a point to screen guests. We have a dedicated team for screening guests to ensure that not only does your property meets their demands but also that guests know your house rules they need to follow.
We have found that transparency is one of the main reasons why many of our clients trust and recommend us to their family and friends. We make it a point to always give an update of what’s going on with your property and what we’re specifically doing to improve our performance and sales.
Providing monthly updates on your property’s performance and our future plans to improve sales has been one of the best ways to keep open communication with our clients. Records to show transparency on listings and prices are also included in these updates to guide clients on what’s happening with their property. Our team also has members who are willing to discuss these details with you whenever you want.

A seamless experience of checking in and out is what we’re aiming for with every guest that books your place. We’ve made it a point to know when guests will be arriving and what their plans are during their stay. This allows us to anticipate whatever needs your guests may have for us to be able to respond accordingly.
Guests are always assured of the highest quality of service since we ensure that turnovers and room preparations are made beforehand. Guests are satisfied when these tasks are swiftly dealt with since they’ll have to spend less time waiting and more time to enjoy their accommodation. Our team members are trained in these processes to make the experience more comfortable for guests.
The key to improved guest experience is a professional housekeeping team that can maintain the cleanliness and well-being of your property. Top reviews are earned with the help of housekeeping staff since they build a good impression of your property to guests.
We make sure to coordinate with cleaning professionals in your local area and orient them on the standard operating procedures they need to follow when cleaning your property such as accomplishing checklists and documenting each task. They’re also trained to be mindful of maintaining a high standard in terms of cleanliness and maintenance of your property.

Payment processing can be extremely taxing since hotel platforms don’t have the best system to accommodate online bookings and payment. Rental providers need to rely on verified payment schemes and anti-fraud mechanisms to ensure every guest accommodated is also a paying customer.
We’ve dedicated a team just for this purpose as they’re tasked to directly communicate with guests regarding payment issues and make sure that any issues on payment for your property are fixed as soon as possible. Our perfected payment collection process helps rental providers with an assurance of profit and reduced worries over payment schemes.
We put prime consideration to the safety and security of your property, and that’s why we take ID verification seriously. We make sure that guests have first submitted a verified and government-issued ID before the could rent your property. We require all guests to submit their ID directly to us before they can receive any check-in instructions.even if they’ve booked through rental platforms.
Since our team is capable of speaking several languages, we’re able to directly engage international guests and explain to them the importance of the ID verification process which we strictly implement.
The first task in order to join the ShareMyCasa team is having a phone call and virtual consultation to discuss your intentions with your property, understand more about the type of property you have, and provide an overview of the services we offer. Some of our clients have never worked with short term accommodation rentals before, so it’s understandable you may have lots of questions, and we’re here to answer them.
Creating a flawless listing takes careful consideration. After we get a develop a better understanding of your ambitions and your location, we’ll establish a listing strategy for each booking platform to attract your ideal guests. Every detail on your listings sends a message to potential clients and how that message is generated can be the difference between good and great financial returns. The quality of our listing development is a result of years of assessing patterns in guest preferences and making adjustments to achieve optimal search rankings, views, and conversions.
Our goal we aim to meet is having your property obtain the highest ratings possible on all booking platforms. Alongside adjusting prices according to peak and slow times, we aim to get you a perfect mix of reservations year round. Some booking platforms have advantages, and others have weaknesses, but we aim utilise all booking platforms to their highest potential in order to seek top ratings and bookings even in slow seasons.
By utilising historical data, information on local events, room availability in hotels, flight data, and conference schedules we adjust prices every day as all of this information is updated in order to sell your accomodation at the highest possible rates. This maintains a steady pace of clients throughout the year while ensuring top ratings are given towards your estate.

Our team is trained to question guests on their intentions for booking your location and assist them with the ID verification process within the booking platform they are using. Good guests typically understand, and we let them know how much it’s appreciated.
Transparency is a big reason why so many of our clients have told their friends and family about us. You should always feel like you have a good grasp of what’s going on with your property and what specifically we’re doing to strive for better performance. We’ve found providing personalized monthly updates on your property’s performance, new things happening in the market, and projects we’re working on to continuously improve our service is a great way to strengthen our relationship with you. It’s normal to have questions and our host experience representatives are always available to chat with you about anything.

The difference with the virtual property management is that we virtually train our housekeepers, who will fill out our checklists and send photos of the completed unit to ensure perfection.
Things happen, it’s life. We can’t always control if something breaks down or stops working. However, we can control the response time and how we go about bringing an efficient solution.

The payment collection process can be one of the most painful parts of any short term rental operation. This especially applies to hotel platforms such as Booking.com, Expedia, and Hotels.com. These platforms have opened themselves up to short term rental providers and have allowed them to take advantage of some of the most powerful online marketing distribution networks in the world. The problem is their platform infrastructure is still built around major hotel chains that collect payment in person at the time of check in / check out. As a short term rental provider, you need reliable payment gateways, strong credit card verification systems, fraud prevention training specific to each marketing platform and the ability to contact and communicate with guests from all countries. We’ve spent years perfecting our payment collection process to allow our clients to take advantage of all of the major marketing platforms without having to deal with any of the administrative headaches.
We treat the safety and security of your property as our number one priority. No guest should be able to access your home or building without having verified their government issued ID. On a platform like Airbnb, we ensure all guests have verified their ID on the platform prior to booking. On websites such as Booking.com, Hotels.com, and Expedia, (which don’t have ID verification features on the platform) we require all guests to submit their ID to us before they receive check in instructions. Our global team is fluent within major international languages so we often call international guests and explain the importance of the ID verification process immediately after booking.
