Our Story...

Life In Paradise Vacation Rentals was a small company that was started in 1985. During the 80's the competition was much different that is today with only a few companies offering vacation rentals. In 1990 Martha and David Dore purchased the business that consisted of 13 vacation properties. Martha quickly understood that in order to grow the business she would have to create a booking process that was more efficient than using paper calendars showing the bookings for each property.  Today, Life In Paradise is still a family owned business that has a culture built on the foundation Martha created years ago with one huge difference, TECHNOLOGY! We use many of the same technologies that the larger companies utilize to ensure that we continue to be a leader in the Property Management business in Port Aransas for years to come. 

More Revenue - Less Cost ... (What We Offer)

Life In Paradise will expose your property to numerous online booking websites, including but not limited to VRBO, HomeAway, Flipkey, TripAdvisor, Facebook to name a few. We spend thousands of dollars each month on Google Adwords and other online marketing initiatives to insure your property will be seen. Our program is very simple, we charge the property owner 17.5% of the rental cost to manage your property plus a 2.4% credit card fee. We will never nickel and dime our owners with miscellaneous charges. Unlike other companies we do not add additional charges for handling repairs, lawn service, or any other that we do on your behalf. We always bill our owners the ACTUAL cost. We do offer the OPTION (not required) to purchase travel insurance and property damage insurance to our rental customers. We pay the owner a percentage of these charges when the customer chooses to purchase these OPTIONAL insurances. This can easily reduce your management cost below the 17.5%

Manage Your Rental ...

Our services are designed specifically to help improve your rental property revenue. Utilizing decades of industry experience and local expertise. Life In Paradise goes beyond the norm to develop new insights, drive results, which will help increase your revenue. In this digital age we understand that the old business model has changed, but we work hard to maintain the small town culture that Martha created over 25 years ago even as Port Aransas continues to grow. Unlike many Property Management Companies we own the linens and towels at no cost to you. All linen is brought to our facility for cleaning in our industrial equipped facility. We do not use the owner's washer and dryers. As your property management company you can rest assured that we will manage your property as if we owned it. We still require that renters come to our office to obtain the property key so we can check IDs to insure we that the renter meets our minimum age requirement of 25 years of age. We have explored converting to the keyless entry system, but this has proven to be problematic and easily allows under age renters to rent a property.

If we may be of assistance or if you have questions give us a call or email.
