As San Diego natives and homeowners, we founded our company based on the need for a management company that offered competitive management fees and provided consistent bookings, while maintaining each home at the highest level.

WHAT SEPARATES SURF STYLE?
SPECIALIZED PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
Surf Style’s focus is on one product – San Diego County property management. 100% of Surf Style’s business is dedicated to property management. We offer access to real estate sales agents should our homeowners be interested in buying / selling their home.
NO EXPENSE MARKUPS
Our aim is to keep expenses low for our homeowners; expenses incurred from third party vendors and retailers is the cost we pass on to you with no additional mark-up fees.
Our team implements strategies & looks for creative ways to maximize revenues for homeowners with 2+ unit properties. This allows us to increase revenues by up to 15%.
COMPETITIVE FULL SERVICE MANAGEMENT FEE
15% Short-Term & 7% Long-Term | Full Service | Fixed As our company continues to grow organically, we are able to maintain one of the most competitive management fees in the industry. This enables us to pass along added profits to our homeowners. Our management fee is always 15% for short-term rentals and 7% for long-term tenancies; this is a fixed fee that does not increase annually. Our service level is always “Full Service,” which helps streamline the management process and maximize our client’s bottom line.
We advise on cost effective improvements over time in order to increase rates and generate repeat guests for all of our managed homes. We think of our management more as a partnership; as trust is earned & relationships are forged over time, Surf Style has a program in place to contribute funds towards improvements. Our #1 goal is always generating maximum revenues while maintaining our homes at the highest level.

“Nick is great at managing vacation rentals. He boosted income and lowered expenses at my cottage on Venice Court in Mission Beach and turned it into a successful year round rental deposit being a remodeled 75+ year old home. He always delivers on his income numbers and I have been referring him business for 5+ years now.”
“This was our first rental experience and I’m so glad I went with Nick and his team. Our house looked better when we got back than when we left it!”
“We have been delighted with Nick’s service and attention to all the details of our rental property. We recommend him highly!”

We feel fortunate to be working with them and recommend them highly.”
