What our owners say
We're pleased with the quick receipt of payments, the new direct payment system is so much better. Very happy with it and recommend.
I've been using Clickstay since 2004 and it has revolutionised the way I obtain, process and manage my bookings. Deposits are taken, balances chased and arrival instructions sent out - all without any interaction from me at all. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I have been using Rentalsystems and Clickstay for over 12 years to manage rental properties in Turkey. The platform is very comprehensive and meets my needs for obtaining and managing bookings. The customer service is good if you need any help.
Great website to find holiday rentals with lots of choices. As an owner, the owner interface is very easy to deal with and calendar can be synchronised easily.
Clickstay and their forerunner Villarenters have supported us in our quest to make our villa sustain its own costs. We have had very few if any issues with the Renters they have introduced to us, and over the 11 odd years we have been with them, we have had very few gaps in our calendar, this is not an easy tasks as we do use the villa ourselves quite a bit, so the dates we offer can be quite limited.
I have been using Rentalsystems for over 10 years and have had great customer support from the team. The standard of guests has also been exceptional! It all adds up to a great system, one that I would recommend time and time again.
