Frequently Asked Questions

What are next steps for signing with Retreats Tasmania?

If you're interested in getting started, you can make contact with us via our enquiry page on our website or by phone.

We will then arrange a time to meet with you and do a walk through the property.  Once that has been done and both sides are happy we have an Agreement to be signed which gives us authority to manage your property.  We do not have any lock in contracts. All we ask is that you give us a minimum of four weeks written notice if you wish to terminate your Agreement for any reason, and honour any bookings already in the system at the time, or the cost of their relocation, for the following three months.  We believe our service speaks for itself as we have had owners with us for a number of years who are not under contract to do so.  They stay because of the service we provide.

Do I receive a statement with my property income payment?

Absolutely.  We pay owners at the end of every month.  You will always be paid by the 7th of the month for the prior month’s bookings.  We provide a detailed statement of income and expenses.

How long until my listing is live on booking sites?

Once we have all of the information we require from you to list your property, and the photography has been done, we can generally have your property live and available for bookings within 2-3 business days.
