I let holiday accommodation in Cornwall, we looked at large agencies who do the total management package but felt already being in the business we would be able to generate enough customers ourselves, happily that seems to have been the case and although friends have gone the managed route and do get more numbers they of course pay a hefty commision and effectively lose control of the property.
Monetarily there's very little in it but we're happy with the situation especially being able to say no when we want to ( one family wanted to hold a wedding reception there )
As a rule of thumb we've always found the better the quality of facilities provided the better its looked after, if something on our holiday park is poor at the start of the season it suffers, in 1995 we built a new shower block and tiled it from floor to ceiling, it has a marble make up and hairwash facility for the ladies and really gives a wow factor on first sight, people still think its a new building 14 years on.
