Vacation Rental Confidential is a practical and exhaustive guide to start a vacation rental business. The book does not pretend to offer an infallible method, but it helps entrepreneurs to choose the best steps for a successful career and avoid failure. Written by vacation rental entrepreneur Michael Hamilton, Vacation Rental Confidential helps aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs to find new ideas and tips for their business. Hamilton draws from his experience and shares his blueprint, the Live Swell’s Proven Process, to get more bookings and satisfied customers. Everyone interested in the vacation rental business will find valuable information they need to know in this book.
It is not easy to explain business concepts to a wide public, but Hamilton manages to do it successfully. His book does not make use of specialist language, and instead, it uses plain terms that make the concept clear. This is why Vacation Rental Confidential is an illuminating journey, and Hamilton’s tips are interesting and ingenious. He explains how to build an effective strategy and tackles every important topic. His advice to entrepreneurs to be mindful and resourceful is remarkable for its logic and intelligence. Hamilton also reminds them of good practices that are often ignored. Among them, he advises a good customer support service and the use of the internet. These and other suggestions can help to get more bookings. I appreciated the chapter on the basics of real estate investing and the one on building a boutique brand because they give other useful tips. All these aspects make Vacation Rental Confidential a valuable source of information and strategy.
