We get it – low nightly rates, occupancy gaps, and bad reviews are so discouraging. But we can help! We’ll map out a plan to get your rental back on track to higher returns!

1) You purchase our Roadmap to STR Success Package.

2) We evaluate your current STR operations and your specific market using realtime data.

3) We map out improvements you can make & provide a roadmap for how to implement our plan and reach your income goals.

Increase revenue potential of your short term rental

Take the guess work out of acheiving the highest revenue potential for your short term rental. You have the space, but you don’t have to be the STR expert – that’s why we’re here!

Great guest experience through good design

We’ll map out your guest experience from initial point of contact to check-out and pinpoint the opportunities to re-design your space for optimal guest enjoyment.

Guarantee positive reviews by nailing the little details

Bring in five-star reviews and encourage viral social sharing when your guests are delighted that you thought of the little details that make their stay better.

The So Well Appointed team is lead by Amy & Elizabeth, two avid travelers who know how to be great guests and in that, really know what it takes to host well, too.  Amy has worked in marketing and customer experience mapping for over 15 years and Elizabeth brings a couple decades of experience as a planner and manager, in addition to her impecable design sense.  When you hire So Well Appointed, you’re getting a customized consultant team ready to evaluate your unique STR situation and create a plan specifically to acheive success in your market. We believe the human touch is what makes STR stays so enjoyable – a successful STR is not generated by an automated system. It’s lovingly cared for by human beings, and sometimes, it takes a village! We’d be honored to be a part of your village.
