We have been operating Handsome Dan’s since the late summer of 2011 when we began marketing our first cottage for holiday rentals in Port Renfrew.  We purchased our own cottage, The French Girl’s Lair with the intent simply to rent it out when we were not using it.   We invested some money in a good website and soon began taking frequent bookings.  Our new neighbours saw the results we were getting and one by one they approached us to ask if they could  include their cottages on our website too!  Since that time we have developed and implemented a fully automated on-line booking system that allows guest to view, select and book their cottages on line.

We have agreements with almost all the on-line booking agents you can name and a spectacular on-line presence with Facebook and Google. Our results have doubled every year since 2012 and many of our guests are happy returning guests two and three times over.

Handsome Dan’s handles the entire ‘guest experience’ from the moment a guest books until after they leave when we follow up with each of them to learn how they enjoyed their visit.

Our objective has been to keep the booking process and the details of the reservations as simple as possible with as few rules to remember as necessary.  We keep this same spirt in the business relationship we have with each of our cottage owners.

Be sure to call me to learn more about including your property on   I’d be happy to share with you the details of our rental arrangements including commissions and how we will help you get your property ready for renting.

I will also be happy to introduce you to any of our current cottage owners so that they may share with you their experience renting their properties on
