Concierges offer home help
Company to help absentee landlords offer short-let service.
A new concierge website, www.shortbreaksindubai.com has been launched to help owners of second homes let out their properties to holiday makers. The company targets landlords who live abroad or have more multiple properties and takes care of property maintenance and rental.
"With the sheer number of extraordinary projects under construction in Dubai, investing in property has never been so affordable or exciting, especially for UK residents who look forward to coming back and forth to Dubai and enjoying the sunshine and retail facilities," says Managing Director Tony Wilson. "We look after the maintenance of the property from pool cleaning to having a housemaid come in on a regular basis. We also collect you or your guests from the airport and provide a welcome service. This includes fresh flowers and bed linen together with a stocked fridge, an information pack and up to date magazines being placed in your home. Extra cots, beds, pushchairs or traveling seats for children can also be arranged."
The website has caught the imagination of the local media, with Emirates Home, the UAE's leading lifestyle and interiors magazine, endorsing the website in the November issue. "It's an affordable fee for an invaluable service which ensures you don't come back to your second home and find a fine covering of sand everywhere or an out of service air conditioner," said the property editor.
