Rental Retreats is a specialist property marketing agency for owners with villas, apartments, chalets and other unique and unusual holiday homes across Europe. Simply put, we work closely with property owners to reveal their special places to the guests who would get as much enjoyment from them as they do. We were established in 2008 in the UK. I am Antony Masters, the owner of Rental Retreats and I also own some holiday rental properties myself in the UK (Glasgow) and Portugal (Sao Martinho Do Porto and Nazare). We re-located Rental Retreats to Portugal in 2014 and from here we work with owners, guests and properties all over Europe including Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Cyprus.
We have a shared point of view at Rental Retreats which I think makes us a little different as a ‘marketing service’. We think that creating ‘positive, memorable experiences’ is the single most important thing that we must be outstanding and consistent at doing. This philosophy (or way of thinking) underpins everything we do, every day. To be clear that’s creating positive memories that can be recalled for years and years to come. Not just a single positive thought, forgotten quickly. For our guests, we generally measure this in terms of positive reviews written. If guests feel passionately enough to take the time to spread the word then they are likely to remember the positive experience years from now. Reviews help us and the owners know we’re getting it right. But they also help make the next experience even better.
