Do you have a property you want us to manage?

Are you looking to maximise the return on your Mornington Peninsula holiday home, and still sneak in the odd weekend for yourselves.

Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats manages properties on the Mornington Peninsula for year round Mornington Peninsula holiday rentals accommodation.

We offer a very personalised service to both owner and guests and manage all aspects involved in presenting your property as a beautiful Mornington Peninsula Holiday Rentals.

Our focus is on outstanding customer service for our guests ensuring all our accommodation is maintained and presented to the highest standard.

We endeavour to provide financial returns that are superior to those that would be achieved if your rental property was earning permanent rental returns or holiday rental returns with a large franchised real estate agent.

Property Management Experience

We have been managing holiday rentals on the Mornington Peninsula since 2004.  We started with our own small cottage in Rye and over the years the business has grown as our properties expanded and owners keen to experience the bookings that we were able to achieve wanted to join our boutique group.  We are an award winning accommodation provider winning the Qantas Australian Tourism Award in 2013 for the best standard accommodation with our Blue Moon Cottages.  We also won RACV Victorian Tourism Awards in 2011, 2012 and 2013 achieving Hall of Fame.  The approach to managing Blue Moon Cottages and achieving our award status is the foundation of our property management business Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats.

Holiday and Short Term Rentals

Holiday rentals are our core business – unlike other Real Estate Agencies that juggle sales and permanent rentals, we are 100% committed to servicing the holiday market.

Like to find out more about listing your Mornington Peninsula holiday rentals with us.  You will need to ensure that they are prepared to keep up maintenance of their property but can be assured of strong bookings year round based on a loyal customer base.

Holiday rentals are the perfect choice for privacy and space and so are perfect for families with children and pets and also groups.  High occupancy can be achieved if you are prepared to accept all of these groups.

Boutique Property Management – why choose us?

We currently have less than 20 properties in our boutique group, we keep this small for good reason.

  • We have a very hands on approach to looking after your property.
  • We believe that a quality selection of properties is an advantage to owners as they are not part of a large portfolio of hundreds of similar properties.  We can maximise returns for our owners by keeping our portfolio small and to a very high standard.
  • Properties are accepted into our portfolio if they do not conflict with our current group.  This gives our guests a unique choice of very different properties that keep them coming back to us again and again.
  • We run a trust account system so all payments are secure and we pay our owners at the end of every month.
  • We keep tight control on linen/laundry service as we have our own Laundry and Linen Hire business – All Washed Out

There are a lot of property management companies out there.  You need to find a manager that fits you.

“We handed over our property for holiday letting to Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats in April 2015.  Sian and Peter made the transition from our property being our home to a holiday let extremely easy, they were very professional, but more importantly made us feel comfortable and at ease with our decision.  We have been happy with the bookings achieved  in the first year, which we understand can be slow for a first time property on the market.  Ocean Blue have been extremely  professional on all matters regarding bookings, payments of rental returns and providing advice and prompt responses to our queries.  Sian and Peter have gone out of their way to assist us with all our queries and requests.  We recently returned to our property to find all is well, confirming our decision to go with Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats.  We would recommend them to any property owners interested in finding managers for holiday lets.” – Mt Martha Retreat
