Property Owners

The owners of our Barefoot Retreats properties are as important to us as our guests, that’s why we provide a fully  managed service to all our home owners to make the whole holiday letting experience as easy as possible.

Whether you’re looking to buy a holiday retreat or already have years of experience as a holiday home owner, we’ll help you achieve outstanding results no matter what stage of the journey you’re at and have the long-term vision and expertise to help you achieve your goals.If you’re starting from scratch, we can help you find the perfect property for you and your family to enjoy wonderful holidays on the Norfolk coast that will also provide the necessary income to make your dream a reality.  Once you’ve found your bolt hole we can also assist with builders and architects and also help with the interior design if required.  If you already have a property that you think would fit nicely into our portfolio then please don’t hesitate to give us a call.  We are always happy to come out and talk through everything in more detail.

We’re immensely proud of our exclusive portfolio of luxury properties.  We don’t say yes to every property we view, but that ensures all of our properties meet our high standards.

As a Barefoot home owner we will maximise the earning potential of your home by managing all the marketing, PR and guest liaison for you.  Unlike other local agencies, we are more than just a booking agent and as a team we will take all of the hassle away from letting out your holiday home by providing our fully managed service.  Sharing your holiday home should be as easy and enjoyable as the holidays our guests will enjoy there and we will make it our job to look after your home as if it were our own.

We’re passionate about providing a truly unique experience for our guests, not just a self-catering holiday.  Bridging the gap between boutique hotels and traditional self-catering accommodation, we offer more than the average commercial holiday letting agency.  Our guests don’t pay a booking fee and our home owners don’t pay anything to join us. 

Surprisingly our commission fee is the same or less than our local and national competitors.  We also cover the cost of professional photography and provide a luxury welcome hamper for guests and manage the cleaning, gardening, maintenance and supply and laundering of linens, towels, bathrobes and slippers for you and our guests and check on your property every two weeks when it isn’t occupied.

We don’t impose any restrictions on how many weeks you choose to let your property either, so it’s up to you how little or much you choose to rent it.

Like our guests you’ll also benefit from our concierge service and the personal touch that’s at the heart of the Barefoot Retreats experience.

We never share your details with our guests and always take a security deposit to ensure that if any accidental damage is incurred during a stay, that this is recovered from the guest and not you.  The only feedback you should receive from our guests is the wonderful experience they have enjoyed in your property.

From writing lovingly-crafted property descriptions for the website, creating magazine advertorials and impactful advertising and by being a member of the Marketing Panel of Visit North Norfolk, we work hard as a team to build brand awareness and consideration, locally, regionally and nationally.

We are passionate about our business and the local area and aim to deliver you an exemplary service.  From our beautiful offices in Thornham our professional team, who all have experience in the luxury hospitality sector, are here to help and guide you every step of the way to make the whole experience as easy as possible for you.

If you have a beautiful property and are thinking of investing in a holiday home or are seeking a fresh and innovative approach, or maybe you just want to find out how to make your home work harder for you; whether it’s a romantic bolt hole, Norfolk hideaway, coastal gem or a rural retreat; we’d really love to hear from you!
