Operating an Overseas Vacation Rental Business with Lisa Byrne

Managing vacation properties is hard work. Anticipating the needs of guests, taking care of things as issues arise, planning proactive and preventative work, there’s a lot to think about – even more so when you’re operating business from afar. 

In this episode, we hear from a successful industry pro living in North America and operating in Europe to learn how she keeps everything in order. Lisa Byrne is the General Manager of VacationPerfect.com which has been hosting travelers overseas for over twenty years. We talk about operating a business in another country, getting customers from OTAs to your personal website, and creating real connections with guests.




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Who You’re With! Their tagline is, “the vacation rentals that remind you what matters most is who you’re with,” which is painted in their mural in their space and could not be more fitting for the holiday season.

We’re starting to see more and more that people are really paying attention to amenities. This space has a peloton (perfect for people who are working and working out from home) which was highlighted in all of their reviews. They also cater to bachelorette parties and they have “makeup bars” in the home: multiple places to get ready for a night on the town! And if that wasn’t enough, there are multiple “instagrammable” areas in the home with gorgeous murals, both inside and outside.

They know who their ideal client is and they’ve really nailed it! We love to see hosts stepping it up a notch. Give them a follow to get a taste of the great work they’re doing! Well done!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!
