Reasons Owners Choose Oregon Beach Vacations
Do our owners choose us for the best marketing on the Oregon coast? What about our low cost maintenance? Could it be our accurate accounting paying out twice as frequently as competitors? We don’t believe this is the main reason owners choose us. The main reason is our incredible employees that make our company possible! Some of the other reasons owners choose us can be found below.

- Our housekeepers utilize Oregon Beach Vacations industrial laundry to clean linens off-site. This saves our housekeepers thousands of hours a year that they spend toward actually cleaning as opposed to being remote laundry mats. This results in less housekeeping strain and chaos in the high-demand periods of the year, making for a better product.
- Our goal is 100% inspections of cleans, where a staff member devoted to inspecting your home will go behind a housekeeper and critique a recent clean.
- If your home sits dormant for longer than 2 days, we will have a secondary “arrival inspection” before guest check-in. This avoids chaos from leaks or appliance breakdowns if we discover this before guest check-in. It also allows us to turn on outdoor lights and open view windows to greet the guest coming in.

- Does your home have a great view? If so, our staff clean any view windows within reaching distance free of charge as part of their normal cleaning routine.
- Our housekeepers are well compensated with the average hourly wage in 2017 at $17.60 per hour. On top of this they earn sick time, vacation time, and even employee ownership! This results in motivated, hard working individuals – the ‘cream of the coastal crop’ – who are dedicated to exceeding guest and owner expectations.
- Our goal with maintenance is for a 24 hour turn-around from the time an issue is reported to when it is resolved. This results in minimal guest issues from maintenance related items and keeps our homes in great condition.

- Our maintenance crew drives company provided vehicles to easily identify themselves to neighbors or guests.
