Lantic Bay Holidays was set up by a trio of like-minded holiday property experts to offer guests and property owners something a little different – and a little better.
There are many holiday letting agencies that guests and property owners can choose from. We've worked with, worked for and let from several of the agencies in Fowey and surrounding areas, and many provide a really good service.
But when we first got together to share experiences, it occurred to us that guests are typically not just looking for a place to stay, but somewhere that will form the core of a much-anticipated and important holiday. For owners, the holiday property is also important; not just as a source of income from an important investment, but often as a place where they spend leisure time with their friends and families. A holiday property is, for us, more than (just) a place to stay.
So we started to think about how to provide a really great experience for guests and property owners:
For guests, we thought about what we can do to ensure that a property is likely to meet their needs and the kind of holiday they want to have, rather than just provide a simple selection of properties to choose from. We also dedicate time to helping guests get more from a holiday experience by sharing some of our knowledge of the local area, as well as some of the things we like to do. We believe that if we do these things, our guests will have a fantastic holiday, and therefore come back to us year after year.
For owners, we thought about drawing from our combined experience and knowledge to provide useful help and advice. While generating income is important, we want to help achieve longer-term objectives for holiday property investments, as well as providing a more enjoyable experience during an owners' use. We believe that if we do these things, we will also create a better and more sustainable long-term partnership with our holiday property owners. To get this right, we invest time in understanding the needs of both our guests and property owners. This means that we will never be the biggest holiday letting agency in south east Cornwall, but when we get it right, we might become recognised as one of the better ones.
