*Every property included in our portfolio is featured free of charge on our website. You only pay our modest listing fee when your first paying guest checks in for their stay.
When you decide to use the property yourself, please inform us. We require booking details from you so as to avoid double bookings.
We also get requests for longer-term rentals of 3 months or more. For lets of more than 3 months but less than a year we only charge 15% of the monthly rental. Some landlords prefer the security of a longer-term let.
We own and live in a property on the resort. We want the resort to the be the success that it can be. We want the resort to be known for its high quality. So your interests and ours are the same.
So what do we do to make sure that a property is not abused by guests? We employ a simple technique of charging a large cash deposit that is refunded if the property is returned in the same condition in which it was handed over. This tactic works! To date we have not had to withhold any monies from any guests.
There is also the usual rules and regulatons that we ask guests to adhere to. You can see what we insist on here: guest's terms and conditions. The most notable stipulation is that of maximum occupancy. This is to avoid overcrowding, excessive noise and damage to furniture. We break up large groups in to multiple properties if the overcrowding rule is broken.
We believe that it is largely our standard operating procedure of personally taking a guest to your property and explaing to them how everything works - and then returning to check them out and inspect the property before returning the cash deposit - that has resulted in properties remaining pristine. We do check-ins and check-outs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, irrespective of weather conditions (yes, it does rain in Morocco).
So what do we charge for our time, efforts and expertise, you ask? We charge an annual listing fee of 1000 Dirhams per property, which is deducted from your first guest's monies which we source for you. Thus you are listed for free until we get you a booking. On top of that, we charge 20% of the total value of a booking. Once again this comes from the payments we collect on your behalf.
Here's a typical example: A guest stays for a week in a 2-bedroom apartment. They pay 1000 Dirhams a night (a nice round number for illustration purposes). That's 7000 Dirhams that we collect on your behalf. We deduct our 20%, which in this case would be 1400 Dirhams. Then the property needs to be cleaned and laundered. Professional laundry services in Morocco are not cheap. Our basic clean and laundry costs for a 2-bedroom apartment are 725 Dirhams. (The cleaning and laundry costs vary depending on the size of property). You would thus nett 4875 Dirhams (69%) for this week's booking. Obviously stays of longer periods are more profitable for you because the cleaning and laundry cost is only incurred once.
It is easy to nit-pick at costs and numbers, but prospetive landlords should be mindful of keeping an eye on the big picture i.e. will your property be protected and will you actually get your money. Also, how much is it worth to be listed on the largest and best lettings agency website for Med-Saidia?
With SaidiaHolidayRentals your property is in good hands!
Send us the details of your property and we'll upload it for you. We can also visit your property and take pictures for you. Then we'll get to work marketing it for you and getting paying guests to come and stay.
We obviously require photographs of your property for marketing purposes. If you are unable to visit Med-Saidia to take the photos yourself, we can arrange to take the pictures and send them to you for approval. There is no additional charge for this, it's all part of the service.
Otherwise photos may be sent to us either:
- By e-mail (as a .jpg attachment).
- By asking us to download photos from your own personal web site.
Please ensure that photos are sharp and as colourful as possible. A blue sky really does help sell! We recommend a mixture of external and internal photos in order to give guests a good overall picture of your property.
For those uploading digital images or sending images by e-mail the following sizes are recommended: Minimum width 325 pixels for landscape photos.
Minimum width 250 pixels for portrait shape photos.
Do not worry about photos being larger than this as we can reduce them to the correct size.
