Vancouver: CertiStay, the leading safety and security certification for short-term rentals, is starting to audit short-term rental properties.
The certification process provides property owners with the opportunity to reduce safety and security issues, limit their liability, and demonstrate their commitment to guest safety and security through an independent third-party certification.
CertiStay chief marketing officer Wolf Wörster said: “The certification goes beyond basic safety and security. It’s a win-win-win situation: guests can sleep well at night knowing that their accommodation is safe and secure; owners limit their liability while treating their guests to the same level of safety they expect themselves, and communities win by providing a safer tourism destination.
“In the next 65 days, we expect to be auditing short-term rental properties in Destin, Panama City Beach, Sanibel Island and Captiva,” he added.
CertiStay is supported by a senior team of industry experts including Randy Bacik, a former owner of Royal Shell Vacations, previously the largest vacation rental company in Florida, and Terry Jones, the founder of Travelocity and the founding chairman of KAYAK.
Candy Harris of Sanibel Island said: “I am thrilled to be associated with CertiStay. Making the hosting process safe, secure, and easy is a major concern for my guests.
“I look forward to having my vacation rentals certified in order to take advantage of the marketing benefits and that comes along with being safety compliant,” she said.
