About Owner Direct Vacation, LLC.
The short version is that we are owners who started this program because our rental agent's fees were getting out of hand. Living in PA we had hard time controlling the costs and decided that there had to be hundreds of owners like ourselves that were
frustrated also. We broke away from the agent (charging 30% commission!) and started advertising on VRBO & HOMEAWAY.com. The rental inquiries came flooding in and we immediately saved money by not paying those high commission rates & booking it ourselves.
However, mailing the keys and contracts became cumbersome and sometimes frantic as a last minute rental would come in. We were unable to meet our renters face to face as well. We also had no control over cleaning problems, appliance break-downs, and unforeseen
issues with maintenance.
So.....we started calling other owners, off of VRBO, (a few hundred) to ask what their problems were. And alas, they were the same as ours: cleaning was # 1 complaint of their renters, AC complaints, refrigeration, theft, no inspections, no knowledge of
booking , replacement of items, mailing the keys got expensive, (especially if sent overnight) and just not having anyone here at the beach to rely on. We moved to North Myrtle 9 years ago and opened the office on May 28, 2009. We now have 70 properties
that we manage, rent, and provide services for.
