Oak Island, NC — The Southport Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the end of February to welcome Salt & Sand Realty as the newest full-service vacation rental management and real estate company on the island. The ribbon-cutting took place on February 26 at their office, 104 Price Street on Oak Island.
Salt & Sand Realty (and Vacation Rentals) launched at the end of December 2020 and specializes in luxury vacation home management with a focus on providing the highest level of attention to detail for their homeowners and vacation guests alike.
Through managing their own OKI vacation home, Rob and Lindsay Close have developed a recipe that provides excellence in guest experience while embracing the charm of Oak Island’s traditional family-friendly vacation atmosphere that they fell in love with. They’re excited to share this knowledge with other property owners in the area who are looking for a fresh, effective way to earn income from their OKI investment property.
Highlights about the Salt & Sand’s vacation rental management program:
When it comes to managing your vacation rental investment, having a local management company you trust is paramount. There are numerous reasons why OKI property owners are choosing Salt & Sand to manage their property; they include:
Comprehensive property care: Rob, Lindsay, and the entire Salt & Sand team believe in treating your home as if it’s their own. Their homeowner partners rest easy knowing their investment property is being managed by a local company that genuinely cares. From impeccable housekeeping, preventative maintenance, property upkeep, and security — they have you covered.
Maximized rental earnings: Achieving a high return from a vacation home requires a management company that continuously stays ahead of the trends and understands how to utilize the best revenue management tools in the industry. Rob and Lindsay bring this along with local knowledge of what it takes to be competitive in the OKI vacation rental market. Plus, they never nickel and dime on services.
Advanced (and easy to use) technology: Having the ability for their homeowners and guests to easily access information 24/7 was an important consideration when the Close’s chose the systems that are now in place. Property owners are pleased to find they have access to an online owner portal and app to find essential information about their OKI home 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
Powerful marketing: All of the homes they manage are listed on the top vacation rental listing websites and are also included on their state-of-the-art website. Plus, they have deployed an intensive marketing program to reach those searching for accommodations in Oak Island — including paid digital advertising, a consistent social media presence, and more.
Exceptional guest experiences: Salt & Sand also understands the importance of an excellent guest experience. Everything they do is centered around making their guests feel at home and taken care of during their stay on Oak Island. Rob and Lindsey believe their guests deserve the relaxing getaway they have been dreaming of, and they have strategically designed their guest services to do just that.
A pledge to partner with other local businesses: In addition, they are dedicated to giving back to the community and partnering with other local companies — housekeeping, linen service, concierge, maintenance professionals, recreation activities, beach gear, and more.
