Housekeeping Services

Lava Springs Vacation Rentals understands the cleanliness of your home is a direct reflection of the pride of ownership you have in regard to your property. We realize how important it is to guests and owners that they find clean and neat accommodations upon arrival. Your home will be professionally cleaned to after each guest’s use. We want to ensure that the little touches that make your home unique and keep bringing customers back year after year are in place.

Whenever possible, the same cleaning crew is assigned to the same homes all season long, so they develop pride in its appearance. Our thought is- if a cleaner is assigned your home, they know the property on an intimate basis. They spot the little things that are missing, broken or out of place faster. They take pride and care about “their house” and as a result do a superior job.

Our team is unique in that they do many things that average cleaners may not - windows, curtains, tops of cabinets, bbq, etc. We do inspections after cleans to make sure it meets with our stringent standards. Although we do prefer our cleaners, LSVR will work with your cleaning crew if so desired.

Maintenance Services

A well maintained home is an important part of a positive vacation experience which results in repeat or referral business. At Lava Springs Vacation Rentals, we believe that guests on vacation in September are as deserving of a home in good condition as those who vacation in May. Vacationers choosing Central Oregon have high expectations.

In addition to keeping owners informed about the condition and maintenance requirements of their property, LSVR provides timely response 7 days a week to guest reported maintenance problems. We have cultivated a network of reputable and dependable contractors. LSVR has relationships with many contractors that give us prompt service, even after hours and weekends, combined with reasonable rates. Many times we are able to pass on pre-negiotiated preferred rates.

Protecting Our Owners’ Interest

While there is the unavoidable risk of damage or theft whenever a property is offered for rental to the public, it is the intent of Lava Springs Vacation Rentals to minimize these risks. By making recommendations on furnishing your home, attracting high-quality guests and implementing a Security Deposit Program which includes an inspection after each guest’s departure. Each guest pays a security deposit in advance- when combined with a strong rental agreement, has proven to be a very successful deterrent against unwarranted negligence or abuse. Although a reservation may be made online, a booking is not complete until a staff member screens a guest. All reservations are contingent on approval by management. Rentals are limited to guests over 25 years of age.

After each guest’s visit the property is inspected by LSVR staff members. The inspector reports anything missing or damaged due to negligence or willful abuse. The inspection is not a minutely-detailed inventory, but the security deposit does address recognizable damage or loss (beyond “normal wear and tear”.

A comprehensive inspection is conducted for each owner during the off-season. Recommendations are made for such things as replenishing kitchen inventory, replacing carpet and furniture, painting or adding guest requested furnishings, supplies or amenities. While it is important to maintain each properties uniqueness, standards are necessary to meet guest expectations. A team member is always available to consult with owners on how to make their property attractive to potential guests and to generate maximum occupancy and income.

Lava Springs Vacation Rentals strive to work with owners to customize any policies that are important to you.

Rental Pricing

It is Lava Springs Vacation Rentals objective to identify the optimum pricing structure for each home that will maximize its rental income potential.
