PROFILE SET UP

As your Co-Host we develop the profile of your property on Airbnb, Booking.com, Tripadvisor etc. 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 are available for 24/7 to support both our clients and guests. The communication begins with the reservation request and screening of guests and continues throughout the stay until the guests leave the property. We handle all guest enquiries about your holiday 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.

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. Our team also check the property after checkout – if there’s a problem we’ll report back to you right away. We also have our own technician at hand with licenses for performing electrical, plumbing or other maintenance work.

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.

DAILY PRICING

We take care of setting the best daily prices using our market expertise. Our pricing system calculates the optimal nightly rate and adjusts it daily by taking seasonal influences and competition into account. This means we can guarantee you optimal earnings.

COMPLETE FLEXIBILITY

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 like our own.

OWN BOOKING ENGINE

In addition to listing your property on the biggest online vacation platforms, Gran Canaria Group also offers its own booking platform, where guests can book the vacation rentals we manage directly on our website at very competitive prices.

Our platform offers the possibility of guests paying by credit card, by bank transfer or by PayPal directly on our website and we accept worldwide currencies securely through our SSL-protected system. We give home owners access to monitor everything through a dedicated client portal, where earnings, occupancy rates and communication with guests can be seen.

SECURE EARNINGS

You will have access to your online booking platforms 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, Booking.com, Tripadvisor etc, not from us. Guests are charged when a reservation is made, and hosts are paid after check-in (depending on each platform’s conditions). How you’re paid is up to you: We can set up direct deposit, PayPal, international money wire or a number of other options.

VIVIENDA VACACIONAL AND POLICE REGISTRATION

Poperty 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 and the aproval by the police, for a one-time payment. Once the license and aproval is obtained GCG registers all guests with the police as part of our fee.

Great bungalow in a lovely part of Maspalomas. It’s in a quiet area so you can relax in the lovely garden or swimming pool and the main strip of Playa del Ingles is very close by. We walked most days and got a taxi for €5 in the evenings. Would highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of meeting Joe during the summer of 2023 in Maspalomas in Gran Canaria. Joe met us at the villa we had hired which was amazing and walked us around the property explaining where things were. He was very attentive to any queries we had and proactive in letting us know of some work being done by the next door neighbour. I’d highly recommend Joe and his team if you are looking to hire somewhere in Gran Canaria!

No matter each booking platform’s payout conditions you will receive 100% of the rental income directly to your bank account and then you pay us our fee from this amount. You therefore have total control of all payments, while Gran Canaria Group takes care of everything for you, acting as your co host.

Our fee includes all services listed below:

OPERATIONS

Booking platform listings, pricing, communication with guests as well as guest check-in and check-out.

SUPPLIES

Supplies such as napkins, toilet paper, toiletries, etc.

CLEANING

Cleaning fees are paid by the guests at each booking. This is calculated as a seperate fee on the booking platforms.

NO INITIAL FEES

There are no initial or hidden fees, so you won’t pay us a penny until we make you earn money.

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.

Real estate agencies focus on buying and selling properties

Property owners who use real estate agencies for property management can experience worse or inconsistent quality of service during ups and downs in the real estate market. This is because real estate agencies offer property management as a secondary service, while their main focus is on arranging the buying and selling of properties, where the potential earnings are greater. Sales commissions are a great incentive for the sales process, however, there is little value for real estate agencies in maintaining an ongoing relationship with you as home owner once a property is sold.

Property managers focus on growing your investment 

A dedicated property managment firm on the other hand has a long term perspective. A property manager will offer consistent, dedicated services to home owners ensuring your property is rented out on short term basis to tourists with the highest possible ocupancy rate, with a steady flow of income, without being influenced as much by the real estate market. This is because property managers are paid via a percentage of the rent paid by your tenants. This payment model ensures your property receives the attention it needs week on week because the more you earn, the more the property manager earns, creating a win-win relationship.

We are 100% professional property managers

Gran Canaria Group isn’t a real estate agency doing property managment as a secondary service. We focus 100 percent of our time and resources on property management. Our goal is to ensure our clients (both home owners and guests) experience property management services well beyond their expectations. With more that 20 years experience from the international property managment and facility managment industry, of which 4 years experience in Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria Group is rapidly becoming the favourite property management firm amongst holiday home owners on the island.

GranCanaria.Group’s goal is to ensure that future guests choose your property when planning their next trip to Gran Canaria. We have helped noumerous clients achive Airbnb’s superhost status, which quickly leads to better rankings, attracting more guests and significant increase in earnings.

The superhost badge on Airbnb will make your listing more attractive to guests – they’ll know you’re working with a professional Co-Host known for great hospitality.

To decide on whether or not to grant this precious label, Airbnb uses a set of criteria differenciating the average host from the selected best. Here is a list of Airbnb’s Superhost criteria, wich GCG aims to achive for all the properties we manage:

• Host a minimum of 10 stays in a year
• Respond to guests quickly and maintain a 90% response rate
• Maintain a minimum rating of at least 4.8
• Have a review ratio of above 50%
• Honor confirmed reservations (avoid cancellations)
