How do I make sure my property meets Getaway’s criteria?

We’re pretty easy going here at Getaway, though there are a few things we take seriously to ensure short-stay accommodation is hassle free for guest and owners alike.

To continue to best serve Getaway homeowners and guests we hold ourselves, and our partners, to the highest standards. For this reason all Getaway properties must meet the ‘guest-spectations’ of Getaway’s four ‘Gs’.

  • All furniture must be safe and sturdy
  • All properties must have working smoke alarms that are checked and certified annually
  • Any gas heaters must be carbon monoxide tested annually
  • All homes must have a First Aid Kit

‘Guest Ready’ means your property must meet the following requirements;

  • Must be guest ready at all times
  • Have adequate short-stay accommodation insurance in place
  • Ensure online booking calendars are kept up to date to avoid double bookings
