About Breakaway Vacay

We focus on providing exceptional professional management services at an affordable price.  We began our Vacation Rental company in 2008 and have successfully served owners and thousands of guests visiting Panama City Beach. Our team has proven to be very successful
at securing quality guests, while maximizing the value of the owners assets.  We know that condo owners purchased with either an investment strategy or a desire to have a second home that could potentially make some money.  We appreciate and understand that and the unique challenges that exist with vacation rentals in a beach environment. That is why we focus our energy on providing professional management services at an affordable price.  Many of our current owners signed contracts with us because of the rising and hidden costs of some of our competitors.  We also receive positive feedback regarding the quality and prompt manner of each level of communication and reporting.  

We have three goals in managing your vacation property: protect your property, maximize your annual revenue, and provide outstanding customer service so that guests will want to return year after year.

How do we do it?  We are constantly working with industry professionals in housekeeping and maintenance to protect your property by keeping it clean and well maintained.  Guests quickly realize that we provide not only a quality vacation rental but personal, attentive customer service.  We maximize your revenue by offering competitive rates and innovative "specials".  We also offer detailed monthly accounting of revenue, commission and expenses; timely owner payouts, copies of maintenance invoices without markup and accurate 1099s and annual reports at tax time.
Here are the hi lights of the services that we provide:
  • Complete income and expense reports for each property.
  • Monthly property reports.
  • Maximum web exposure on the 24 most popular search engines.
  • Condos are posted on multiple marketing sites.
  • Interior pictures of each condo are posted to our website.
  • 20% Management fee on vacation rentals.
  • 15% Management fee on long term rentals (anything over 30 days)
We have found that our owners appreciate the fact that we have a video and interior pictures of
their property on our website. This gives potential guests the opportunity to review our available
inventory and pick the condo that looks the best to them. This eliminates subjective ranking
systems, and rotation systems that often leave owners wondering why their condo is sitting empty.
We price our condos based on market competition. We are continuously checking the websites of
competitors as well as VRBO/Trip Advisor to make sure that we are competitively priced, because in this market
consumers go where the deals are. If a management company fails to stay on top of the market,
they end up with a lot of empty condos. We believe that it is our job to make sure that condos stay
rented! Please take a look at the next few pages to get an idea of how we promote our condos!
Once again, we welcome the opportunity to discuss in more detail the ways that our management
team can serve you. If you have any questions, please give me a call.  It isn't our goal to be the biggest management company on the beach - just one of the best!
