Conveniently located in the resort district of South Padre Island, Padre Getaways was founded by Wally Jones. Wally has over 35 years experience in the hospitality business, having served as the CEO of a public hospitality company before opting for the quality of life that the island offers. Wally has the added experience of having owned rental properties both on and off the island, and he has experienced the best and worst of property management from both owner and guest’s perspectives.
Wally has done extensive research on occupancy rates and seasonality on South Padre Island so that he can set realistic expectations for his clients. His observations about property management on SPI motivated him to design a new approach. Wally says, “Owners of rental properties on South Padre Island, most of which do not reside here year round, are looking for peace of mind when they choose a property manager. Unfortunately many of them have been let down. Successful property management requires effective advertising, proper maintenance of properties, accurate and timely accounting and exceptional customer service for both the rental guest and the client owner.” Through superior attention to detail and higher standards for quality, luxury and value in service, the goal at Padre Getaways is to ensure that both owners and guests enjoy a no-stress, problem-free experience on South Padre Island.
Wally believes that advertising and promoting rental properties is not enough to ensure a loyal and stable base of repeat customers. Property management requires a “matchmaking” service. At Padre Getaways, a detailed survey of features is made of each property so they can match rental guests with the best fitting property. Each guest is provided personal attention when making a reservation and upon check-in. A great guest experience translates to a stable base of repeat customers for each property.
At Padre Getaways, potential rental guests are carefully screened to eliminate issues such as overcrowding, excessive wear and tear and inventory loss. In addition to security and damage deposits, all guests must sign comprehensive rental agreements ensuring that properties are always maintained in "like new" condition. Detailed inventories identifying furnishings, decor, linens and kitchen wares are kept current on each property by completing an actual physical count at each guest departure.
Client owners are provided monthly statements so that they can see at a glance how their property is performing. At Padre Getaways, effectively and honestly managing a client owner’s expectations is critical to their success.
Whether you are looking to rent a beach house or condo for a vacation getaway or you are a property owner looking for a professional property management company, Padre Getaways is ready to answer your questions and make the process as easy as a walk on the beach.
