Rented - July 2006 Edition
Holiday Home Rental Newsletter - July 2006 Edition

Hello Fellow Home Owner/Manager

Photos From Holiday Rental HomesWelcome to the first newsletter! My name is Andy Steggles, and I wanted to thank you for listing your rental property with us.  Now, I know what you're thinking, "Oh, great, now that Steggles guy has got my e-mail, he is going to e-mail me every day." Well, I will if you would like me too, but I think I'll stick to making sure your properties look good!

I'm not sure if you know this, but we actually manually review and approve every single listing including every photo which is posted to our site.  You wouldn't believe some of the things people post as an advertisement.  Seriously, it was only last week that I found another classic in the approval queue... "Rob" from Somerset had posted a photo of himself in the rental property kitchen with only his Speedos on... (frying an egg or something) - Initially I thought it was a little disturbing until I asked him about it.  He said he thought it would be a good marketing ploy and was trying to emphasise that Somerset does get nice weather.  Well, I'll admit it caught my eye, so as funny as it was, it may or may not have been wrong - who knows?  Still, it definitely had a few laughs on our end.

So, with the upcoming rental and speedo season nearly upon us, we wanted to update you on some exciting news and new features that you will be seeing soon.

Latest News from Holiday Home Rental

1. Free Period Extended Until Early 2007!

Yes, you read it correctly; listing a property with HolidayHomeRental is still free.

2. Back-Links

For those of you who have your own website, we're got a great incentive scheme for you to put a link on your website back to ours ("Back-Link").  If you do this, you'll appear higher in our search results using our "Property Points" system.  Once you've linked back to us, e-mail me to let me know and I'll ensure you receive the credits. If you don't have your own website yet, never fear!  We'll have some exciting news for you coming up in the next few months.

3. Future Price Plan

Our 2007 pricing plan is now available for viewing.  A standard listing will be just 39 pounds per year, per property, with absolutely no commission.

4. Property Points System

A common question we get is how to make a listing appear higher within the search results.  So in order to simplify this process, we have developed a plan to allot property points to each listing.  However, in order to ensure its effectiveness and ease of use, we are asking for some user feedback.  If you get a chance please let us know what you think by simply replying to this e-mail.

Too Busy?  

Yes, yes, I know you're too busy getting ready for the summer season - I'm with you all the way. My wife and I are also getting used to having a baby (10 months later and I'm still in shock!) - say hello to William.

That's all for now.  If you have any questions or concerns, I'm your man. Please e-mail me.

HHR guy (and fellow speedo wearer),


About Holiday Home Rental

For those who don't know much about, we're based in Newquay, Cornwall, and the company is owned by people like yourself who have the headache of managing properties (ever get the impression people have absolutely no idea of how much work is involved with each booking?).  Oh, and if you're wondering how we're doing in general... we now have over 10,000 properties!
