Gran Canaria Group in Numbers
It’s that simple! Gran Canaria Group takes care of everything for you!
Airbnb PROFILE SET UP
As your Co-Host we develop the profile of your property on Airbnb. Each listing is carefully and comprehensively designed to generate a high number of bookings. It contains a detailed description of your property and its amenities, highlighting all the best features of your home and local area. Amazing photos are essential for a successful listing – we ensure that they will be taken by our professional photographer.
COMMUNICATION WITH GUESTS
We will be available for 24/7 support for both our clients and guests. The communication with the guests begins with the reservation request and continues throughout the stay until the guest leaves the property. We handle all guest enquiries about your home and co-ordinate bookings on your behalf. We will make sure you are not disturbed – we are prepared to handle everything in a quick and efficient manner.
24/7 MEET & GREET
Guests arrive at different times during the day, sometimes on weekends and during the night. We can check them in and send them on their way 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During check-in we will hand over the keys, explain how the appliances at the property function and go over the safety instructions.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Cleanliness is our top priority. After each stay the property is cleaned by our trained professionals and the beds are made up with fresh linen and towels. During the cleaning our teams check for any damages to the apartment and the furniture – if there’s a problem we’ll report back to you right away.
VIVIENDA VACACIONAL AND POLICE REGISTRATION
Property owners who let out their holiday homes to tourists in Gran Canaria must hold a tourist licence, which in Spanish is called Vivienda Vacacional. All tourists must also be registered with Spanish police upon arrival through an online platform accessible for approved property owners holding a Vivienda Vacacional license. On request, Gran Canaria Group can help our clients gather the necessary documents for application and obtain both the Vivienda Vacacional license from the Tourist Board and the aproval by the police, for a one-time payment. Once the license and aproval is obtained Gran Canaria Group registers all our client’s guests with the police as part of our fee.
You will have access to your Airbnb profile at all times so that you are in full control of your property’s availability, prices and number of guests, how many guests were accommodated, who they were and when they stayed. You can therfore feel totally safe about your earnings as payments are made directly from Airbnb, not from us. All payments are processed securely through Airbnb’s online payment system. Guests are charged when a reservation is made, and hosts are paid 24 hours after check-in. How you’re paid is up to you: We can set up direct deposit, PayPal, international money wire or a number of other options.
We take care of setting the best daily prices using our market expertise. Our pricing system calculates the optimal nightly rate and adjusts daily by taking seasonal influences and competition in account. This means we can guarantee you optimal earnings.
It’s your home. Rent it out on your own terms. You decide when the property is available for bookings. When you return we’ll ensure your home is ready for you, so when we hand you back the keys, you’ll feel at total ease that we’ve looked after it.
Property Management vs. Real Estate – What’s the difference?
Property management and real estate are two separate industries which are often confused by clients. The fundamental difference between a real estate agent and a property manager is focus. While real estate agents offer property management as a secondary service, property managers are solely focused on managing your property and are dedicated to growing your investment.
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our guests say about our Superhost properties:
Fabulous new villa with private pool/ocean view
This place is amazing and was exactly as advertised. 100% match the pictures and even better. Very clean and new. In a quiet and safe community. Very nice hosts!
Beautiful San Agustin mansion with 5 bedrooms
Wow wow wow! 9 of us spent a wonderful week at this amazing house. Beautiful views of the sea and excellent facilities are two big plus points of this spacious house.
Peaceful dunes views apartment in Playa del Ingles
Clean and very well furnished and the location is great, right by the dunes. The grounds are lovely. The communication was smooth. I would come back in a heartbeat.
Airbnb profile listing, pricing, communication with guests as well as guest check-in and check-out.
Supplies such as napkins, toilet paper, toiletries, etc.
Cleaning fees are paid by the guests at each booking. (this is a common practise at Airbnb).
NO INITIAL FEES
There are no initial or hidden fees, so you won’t pay us a penny until we make you earn money.
