Management Plan Options

Realizing that every owner is different in terms of the Management Plan Options they are looking for, Your Guy Friday offers two distinctly different Plan options designed to maximize your income or minimize your participation—whichever works best for you. Please review the following Plan options, and know that if none of them is exactly the right fit, Your Guy Friday will customize something that is perfect for you!

The Basic

“The Basic” plan gives you, the owner, total control of your vacation rental program while satisfying all State requirements (making you “legal”) for an on-island, licensed contact person. For a monthly flat fee of $200, Your Guy Friday will be available virtually ‘round the clock for any emergencies or other needs that may arise with your guests. If service people need to be called, Your Guy Friday will select from a list of qualified sub-contractors to make necessary repairs in as short a time as possible, keeping your guests happy and assuring next year’s return visit. Once the work is completed, Your Guy Friday will make an on-site inspection before approving payment. 

In addition, contact information will be placed in the unit so that your guests may use Your Guy Friday as a mini-concierge service, providing information on where to go and what to see; dining opportunities; best beaches; golf and tennis; dry cleaners, hair salons, etc. For the low, low cost of $200/month, you have the peace of mind that your guests will have a quality experience here in Maui.  As an add-on to this plan, managing housekeeping and inspections post departure and pre-arrival can be included on a $50/guest basis.  Call for more details.


The Turnkey

This is the perfect plan for those owners who want a full-service management program, customized to your specific needs.  Your Guy Friday will set up a site on popular Vacation-Rentals-By-Owner websites and handle all inquiries, bookings, scheduling, coordinating housekeeping, trouble-shooting, provide concierge service, inspect unit after each departure and prior to each arrival, and even file your monthly or quarterly state taxes.  Plans start as low as $400/month flat fee plus 10% commission on all bookings (extra charge for departure and arrival inspections).  Call for details! 

Below is a brief list of FAQ’s that may be helpful:

Is each Plan set in stone, or can we mix and match if necessary?

Absolutely. . Your Guy Friday will customize a plan to fit your needs.

If I send in an advance deposit (required) to cover monthly and unexpected costs, will that money be co-mingled with others?

No. Each client will have their own separate bank account here on Maui.

Will you only use licensed contractors for repairs and other needs as they arise?

If that’s your preference, then “yes”. The State of Hawaii does allow for “handyman” repairs under $1,000 to be made by non-licensed workers. Your Guy Friday will only use competent people.

Can I customize my “Welcome Baskets” for specific guests—champagne for some, organic fruits and coffee for others?

Of course. You will only be billed at the hourly rate for shopping and putting the basket together, and pay my cost for items in the basket.

Whichever Plan I choose, does the “flat rate” apply regardless of how many or how few bookings I have during the month? What if I don’t have any bookings?

Yes, the flat rate will apply regardless of bookings. That’s why it is a “flat rate”, designed to average out over the course of a year, allow you to fix your costs, and guarantee steady cash-flow for Your Guy Friday. Once we have agreed to work together, a certain amount of time will be allotted for your account, whether it’s used or not.

If you match these rates up with what you’re paying your management company now, you will find them to be very competitive. More importantly, you will be working one-on-one with the hands-on person whose mission is to give your guests the best possible experience with their Maui vacation, so they come back to your unit year after year.
