Seeking qualified property manager to handle multiple vacation rental properties in Ithaca. While owner is primarily responsible for handling reservations and guest communication, manager would be responsible all local needs, undertaking or sub-contracting all cleaning/turnover between guests, landscaping/yard maintenance/snow removal, laundering of bath and bed linens, maintaining backstock supply of linens as well as basic guest staples (toilet paper, soaps, coffee, etc).
This is a job for an independent contractor, not an employee. While the work can mostly be done by one properly skilled and equipped individual, because it requires full time year round availability, it is best fulfilled by a small business with at least a single employee or partner to be available in the absence, planned or otherwise, of the primary manager. The work required for our properties ranges from 20-40 hours per week according to seasonal variance, so the right team could easily take on additional clients. There are not, to my knowledge, any kind of full service vacation rental property management businesses operating in the Ithaca area, but short term rentals have exploded in Ithaca and the Fingerlakes in the past several years, so there is real opportunity there for the right business to grow.
Interested respondents should include a proposal and resume with contact information. I will be responding to qualified parties to arrange a phone interview.
