PASC Member

We are a member of PASC – The Professional Association of Self Caterers reflecting the high standard of our offer.

We know there are a lot of booking agents operating across The Bay but they all charge large commissions and don’t advertise across a wide variety of platforms. In addition, we may be an owner but when we get an enquiry we allow the guest to choose their property and will never recommend one property over another.
