We’ve outlined the top 10 reasons why listing your home with us takes the time, stress, hassle and guesswork out of DIY holiday home rentals.

1. Bachcare manage all guest queries directly

If you rent out your property and decide to go it alone, calls and messages from guests at all hours of the day can seem to take over your life!

At Bachcare, a Holiday Manager for your home’s area is on hand for guests throughout their stay, whatever their query may be.

They live locally, usually only a short drive away - a huge advantage especially if your bach is in a different part of the country to where you live!

Not only that, our dedicated support team is available to manage guest queries. This means you’re left to enjoy your weekends in peace knowing that your guests are more than well looked after!

2. Our team takes care of cleaning

DIY holiday home renting can mean you are responsible for cleaning your holiday home before guests arrive and after their stay which can be hard work and very time-consuming!

Our professionally trained team of Holiday Managers take care of cleaning, and handle check-outs. Our team can also assist with general maintenance and repairs - just give us a call and we can arrange this for you!

3. You benefit from our industry-leading pricing software

Setting the right price for your property can be one of the most difficult decisions with DIY renting. At Bachcare, our dedicated pricing team takes into account market demand, supply, and other comparable holiday houses in your area before they set a base rate.

Our industry-leading software is then used to adapt your price based on seasonality and occupancy in the area to get you the most bookings possible - something which would not be feasible for a DIY-er.

4. We handle all marketing, ensuring maximum property visibility

Marketing your own holiday home can be confusing and overwhelming, with little return on investment. All Bachcare owners benefit from our full-funnel marketing activity across search engines, social media, email, radio, sponsorships and more!

Our team of experts across these platforms ensure that your property is easily found and booked online. We also take care of writing property descriptions - it’s crucial to showcase your home’s best features!

5. Bachcare's brand awareness and reach ensures you maximum occupancy

Recognized as one of best holiday house management companies in the world, Bachcare’s brand awareness and reputability ensures your property gets booked. Our website gets over 150,000 visitors each month!

Not only that, Bachcare maximises your booking potential by listing your property on major partner sites such as Airbnb,, Bookabach, and Holiday Houses.

6. Our team of experts take care of your business every step of the way

There’s a lot to consider when DIY renting, which is what can make it so stressful. At Bachcare, whatever stage you’re in on your holiday home renting journey there is a team of professionals here to help.

Just some of those experts include a Holiday Manager as we’ve mentioned above, and our New Owner Advisors who guide you through the onboarding process. Need some extra help with your holiday home rental? Speak to a New Owner Advisor here!

7. You can access property performance and financial information anytime

With DIY renting, keeping track of your property performance and financials can be very difficult. Wouldn’t it be great if everything was in one place?

With Bachcare, the Owner Portal will be your new best friend! This is your own personal dashboard that allows you to track bookings, payments, property performance and even download IRD-ready tax statements.

You have the ability to control and monitor every aspect of your holiday home, right at your fingertips.

8. We can help with recommendations like photography and home styling

When potential guests are looking for the perfect getaway, appearances matter. Property images can make or break a decision to book.

With Bachcare, we organise professional photography of your home as part of your new membership and can even arrange home styling to help you gain those additional bookings. Much easier than trying to achieve high-quality images on your smartphone!

9. You don’t have to be on the ground to manage your rental

More often than not, owners do not live close to their holiday homes. As you will have learnt from reading this blog post, we really do take care of it all!

This means whether you’re in another city, country, or continent we can offer the Bachcare service to you - holiday home rentals made easy.

10. You won’t pay a cent ‘til your first booking!
