I know that > any house I leave with them will be cared for as well as I would care for it (and often better)."-Owner, Parasol
"Giving a vacation home over to a property manager is something that no one takes lightly.

The only reason that I was able to do it was the professionalism and personal warmth that I experienced from their
staff."-Owner, Sugar Dunes

"...Sunset Reflections has been indispensable in helping us get our house ready for rental - it is like having best friends at the Cape looking out for you! We were approached by other rental companies- some offered lower prices, but none compared to Sunset Reflections? they are worth every penny you pay them. Their high standard of customer service extends to both homeowners and renters and explains why homeowners stay with them year after year and why renters book year after year."-Owner, Easy Breezy
"...reservations wise, I have been pleasantly surprised! We are already booked solidly through the summer and fall seasons, > and I feel very confident that they will exceed our rental projection expectations.

Our team of seasoned professionals are the eyes and ears for your property and we take this responsibility seriously. With a maintenance department that is on call 24/7 we can quickly attend to any problem that arises, and our qualified technicians can usually take care of repairs themselves, at a fraction of the cost of bringing in outside vendors. When issues do come up, you will be promptly apprised. If necessary, and with your permission, we rely on our vetted network of the top local contractors and oversee their work.
At your invitation, our team can provide you with tips to help make your home more rental friendly and desirable. We have helped our homeowners redecorate on a budget, overseen minor and major renovations as well as new construction. We can do as little or as much as you’d like to make sure that your home stays rented.
Finally, because most of our homeowners do not live near the Cape, Sunset Reflections has a written Severe Weather Preparedness Plan for each home which is implemented should severe weather be forecasted.
We take great pride in caring for all of your vacation rental home needs and protecting the value of your vacation home.
We are proud to be one of the only management companies on the Cape that provides a certified housekeeping staff that participates in ongoing and comprehensive continuing education programs and follows a 76-point cleaning plan designed to ensure consistent and thorough cleaning of each home, each week…and then we re-inspect every home to verify that our high standards are met.
Our system also provides that the same professional housekeeping team and inspector clean the same home each week. This way we know if something is missing or broken.
Sunset's Golden Rule is that we only get one first impression, so our guests walking in to a clean home is critical every week of the year. We ask for guest feedback on cleanliness and bonus our team on these results. Year after year we find that these tools help us maintain the highest occupancy on the Cape as well as happy repeat visitors.
- Trusted Accounting Practices
Sunsets accounting and reporting is transparent to our homeowners and we will keep you informed of all financial dealings related to your investment. We provide easy to understand, detailed monthly Financial Reports (or Statements) that outline all income and expenses. We also prepare all state and local sales tax payments and reporting. Finally, we engage a local CPA, with extensive knowledge of and background in Vacation Rental Management to provide third party trust accounting audits.

These locks are purchased by Sunset Reflections at no charge to you.
