We've Got Answers.

Picking a rental management company to care for your vacation rental is a big step. This owners FAQ section is designed to answer the most common questions asked by new owners. If the specific question you were looking to get answered isn’t listed please don’t hesitate to call our dedicated homeowners department.

Our management services include the marketing and promotion of your vacation rental property by our sales and marketing team, reservation services from our trained and motivated reservation staff, 7 days a week housekeeping and maintenance services, and monthly accounting of rental income and related expenses.

With the understanding that each property is unique, we have multiple management agreements designed for the specific property. Our fees are lower or competitive with other area management companies.

Our team of trained maintenance technicians responds to a variety of guest and owner services calls seven days a week. Maintenance calls are billed at $40.00 per hour. Services that require less than 20 minutes (such as replacing a light bulb) are complimentary. Specific information on any costs exceeding $200.00 will be provided by our Owner Services team.

The initial contract term is for one year, with automatic renewals on an annual basis. The agreement may be terminated with a minimum 30-day notice. Owners are required by South Carolina State Law to honor existing guest reservations for a period of not less than 90 days after termination of the management agreement if existing reservations cannot be relocated to other accommodations.

Each month, every owner is provided with an accounting of income and expenses. Statements are available on your personal Owner Portal on our website, www.lachicotte.com, 10 days after the end of the month. We recommend a direct deposit for quickest access to your rental proceeds.

We lead the way in reaching prospective guests looking for rental opportunities in the Pawleys Island and Litchfield Beach areas. Our websites rank near the top for most search terms used by those looking for vacation rentals in the area. We utilize a mobile optimized booking engine, and employ an aggressive email marketing campaign reaching over 3.5 million subscribers each year. We work with the leading third-party booking channels in the world – Priceline, Expedia, Travelocity, Air BNB, VRBO, and others – and we maintain an aggressive social media campaign.

There are no rental fees when you use your property. This applies to you, the owner, as well as, your children, brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents or grandchildren. However, the cost of a departure cleaned will be billed.

As an owner, you are able to offer your guests an additional 15% off of our lowest advertised rates or other agreed upon rate. Lachicotte – a division of The Litchfield Company does not allow owners to rent their property for a fee in lieu of our services. Cleaning fees are based on the number of bedrooms and size of the home.

Our Revenue Management team closely monitors market trends, and sets rates accordingly. Our Yield Management Techniques seek to maximize rental revenue based on demand. Initial rates are based on number of bedrooms and bathrooms, size, location, and views of the home. We also establish minimum-length-of-stay and deposit/cancellation policies. Our rates are managed weekly based on market trends, pace to prior year, pace to budget, advance over prior week, and other market conditions to ensure you are receiving the highest rate achievable for each reservation.
