The payments will appear on your Owner’s Statement after a guest’s scheduled arrival date. We will email you a statement oncethey are processed. Electronic Fund Transfers should show up in your account about 3 days after you receive the Owner’s Statement. Please notify us if you have any more questions.

+What are my responsibilities as a vacation rental property owner?

All Properties in the My PV network must be maintained in a rentable condition with everything in working order. By virtue of being a vacation rental there will be some wear and tear on your property, and you can expect to periodically have to replace and replenish items such as linens. Our experience has shown that the additional revenue generated through the increase in occupants more than pays for replacing beach towels or a set of sheets (in fact, it could pay for renovating your property’s kitchen). Furthermore, properties which are frequently used are typically in better condition since they are continually being cleaned and evaluated. Little problems are handled before they become big problems. Here is asummary of the Puerto Vallarta Property Rental requirements:

  • Keep the unit clean, safe, and in good physical condition.
  • If you provide bedding and linens, they must be clean, unworn and properly stored. Mattress pads,  bed sheets and blankets must be appropriately sized to the mattress or bed so that the entire  sleeping area of the mattress is covered.  Sheets and pillowcases must be in good condition,  cleaned and changed between each guest or once a week, whichever comes first.  Bedding items,  such as mattresses, comforters and pillows must be thoroughly aired, disinfected and kept clean.  If you provide soap, it must be available either in individually wrapped bars or as liquid soap in a  dispenser.
  • Baby cribs provided to guests must meet safety standards established by the Consumer Products  Safety Commission.
  • Dishes and glassware must be sanitize between guests. Otherwise, a notice must be posted informing  guests that the dishes and glassware are not sanitized.
  • Keep the establishment free of vermin.
  • Install smoke detectors in guest areas.
  • The electrical system must be proper and safe. Do not use extension cords.
+How does My PV decide on the rental rates for my property?

Our experience has proven that property price point is the key to securing reservations. With this in mind, we routinely do comprehensive rate reviews for each property in our network. My PV’s rate system is extremely thorough and designed to achieve the correct price point for every individual week of the year in each distinct market. We can adjust rates across all our properties in seconds based on a higher or lowerdemand. In the industry, this is called “Yield Management”. We have examined area holiday calendars, school calendars for Spring Breaks, first and last day of school, event calendars, international travel research for market... Although you may occasionally feel that the rates seem too low or too high, remember we have analyzed the market demand and dates and have strategically fixed rates to generate the maximum rentals and revenue for the whole calendar year. My PV takes this responsibility seriously, investing a great deal of resources into examining and determining rental rate tables to maximize your rental income. Toward this end, we reserve the right to adjust the rates accordingly, with your previous authorization.

+What determines which properties get rented first? 

Our system is designed to enable a prospective guest to find their property online. We like to say we run a capitalist system of renting. Once a guest finds our site they can run live searches and see what all is available. They can see what properties are nicer than others, which have better views, which has a king bed instead of a queen in the master, etc. Frankly, the nicest properties get rented first knowing that all properties are priced for what they are based on the various factors such as view, location and the above items plus many more. Another aspect of our program is that owners who wish to be more aggressive can purchase more than one internet ad to drive more traffic directly to their property. These ads pay for themselves (when managed correctly like we do) and all yield a return on the investment, just as your property should.
