Holiday letting has proved to be a great success for many of our owners.
We have owners who run their cottage purely as a business enterprise and owners who enjoy using their own holiday homes and are happy to let them when they are not using them, which provides a useful income.
Many of our owners and guests have been with Menai Holiday Cottages since it was established in 1981.
If your cottage matches the list below, please give us a call and we can discuss your property in more detail. If we think it may complement our existing portfolio, we can arrange a visit:
• Would you be happy to arrive at your cottage for a much awaited and saved for holiday?
• Is it furnished to a high standard similar to other properties on our web site?
• Is it in a good location?
• Will it sell itself from external photographs?
If you meet the above criteria then please contact us.
What our owners say
“In 2016, from standing start in January (and a speculative visit to the Criccieth office) we had two helpful visits from the Menai team to identify potential issues, and to give advice (thanks also for ‘gen Y’ view). A photo visit from Pippa followed…. who made the interior look very inviting on a cold February afternoon, and subsequently great support from Gwenan and the Criccieth Office, and the rest of the booking team. The question was then, will it book? The answer was clear, from mid-May to mid-September 2016 we could only squeeze in one owners’ week, so the answer has to be ‘yes’. That was a great outcome for all concerned. Menai moved from the marketing to the ‘managing’ role seamlessly, and with a house-keeper we all have faith in, our guests really enjoyed their time at Mor Edrin. For all sorts of reasons we are really pleased that, although we cannot be in Criccieth as often as we would like, others will continue to get the chance to enjoy it all."
"We are delighted that you provide us with so many guests and that so far the standard is really high - they do seem to be particularly nice and appreciative families. It's really special to read the visitors book! Thank you and your team for everything, we feel in very good hands. The house is very special to us and we are lucky we found you."
"It's coming up for a year - in April I think - since I signed the contract with Menai - and I'm reflecting on what an enormous success it has been working with you, without exception - so far, fingers crossed, and not speaking to soon - all the guests have been model visitors! Also, everyone in the office has been super helpful and kind while we have got all the teething trouble etc. sorted."
"Please pass on my sincere thanks to the whole team - you have already surpassed my expectations for the first year, massively outperforming Hoseasons who I let the property through previously - thank you!"
"I always highly recommend Menai Holidays to friends of mine who are considering letting out their holiday houses - you have really gone out of your way for us as owners over issues we've had and I am hugely grateful for that - it is testament to the fact that your business really is in a different league to your competitors (and please feel free to quote me on that!)."
"Our house is immaculate thanks to our housekeeper but also due to the care of our guests. Breakages are almost zero, damage to the fabric of the house negligible, missing items zero. All credit to you and your team for attracting high quality and respectful holiday makers. Your clients seem to share our house as if it were their own and for that, we are very grateful to your team and our guests."
