Our Holiday Let Services
With all new properties The Edinburgh Concierge Company will guide you through every aspect of getting your property ready for listing, and ultimately listed on as many platforms as you wish. From advising on necessary certificates right though to actually listing your property, we are here to advise and answer all your questions. Our aim is for bookings to come in quickly and therefore it is our aim for every property be the best it can be, so it can hit the ground running with beautiful photographs that appeal to guests.
We start by visiting you at your property and getting to know you. We talk through everything during that time and formulate a plan. If you are keen to rent out your property for short term holiday let but don’t think it is suitable as it is, we will take a look and advise accordingly.
For a very competitive cost, we not only offer more for your money than other management agencies, but more for your guests!
Contact us on 07872899527 to see how we can be of the most help to you.

As well as the En-Suite package we also offer the following stand alone services:-
‘ Temporary Co-Hosting’ For a set fee we will cover properties whilst you are away whether that be for a day or a few weeks. If you need us to take over, we will, even at short notice should you have an emergency. We will do exactly what we do for a normal management. It will be as if you have never gone away.
‘Preparation for Letting’ If you are looking to set up your apartment but not wanting a management company, for a set fee of £50 (refundable against your first invoice if you do decide to take us on), we will visit for a 2 hour chat taking you through the whole process of letting your property on the different homestay platforms, from the best way of maximising your property’s potential for holiday letting, including furnishing, decor, regulations and pricing right through to finding a good cleaner and looking after your guests. This service is ideal for people who want to do everything themselves but don’t know where to begin.
‘Design Service’ There is no doubt apartments that attract the most visitors are apartments that are either luxurious or have something different about them, be that full of character or quirky and the more ‘Scottish’ they are the better. Guests quite rightly expect a lot and their satisfaction or dissatisfaction of your apartment will soon show in their reviews and over the years, experience has even given us an idea as to which nationality will favour which type of apartment. We can help you maximise your property’s potential, we know what guests like and look for when booking, and our interior designer will help you achieve a look that will make for amazing photographs within a budget you can comfortably afford. Call us on 07872899527 for further information and to book a visit.
