We bought our condo early in 2018 and after doing some checking around, we decided to have it managed by Southern. That was a great decision for us. The rental income for our first year was right at what they predicted. We enjoy our condo a great deal when we can and feel like it is in good hands when we are not there. We especially enjoy our Portfolio Manager who has been a great resource for us. He will go the extra mile for us. We have never caught him in a bad mood, even when we know he has to be extremely busy. With all their good service, we will be staying with Southern!Kate & Rocky M., Owners
After many years of renting I made the decision to purchase a beach condo in Perdido Key, Fl. After meeting with several Rental Agencies I chose Southern Vacation Rentals to represent me in managing the rental of my unit. I have now been with Southern for over 5 years and I must say it has been the best decision I have ever made. I take Great Pride in maintaining my condo to very high standards and Southern is the driving force in making that happen. All the associates that I have had contact with have all treated me in a Friendly, Professional manner and it is very obvious that their main goal is to ensure that anyone who chooses to rent my unit will have a very pleasant vacation that makes long-lasting pleasant memories. Let's face it, stuff happens to any rental. My unit has a Property Manager that personally inspects my unit after every rental. She does not miss a thing. If repairs are needed, she has them taken care of before the next renter arrives. We meet often and we discuss both short-term and long-term projects that will keep my condo in top condition, not only for renters, but for myself and my family to enjoy! I have not used any other Rental Company but I think it would be difficult to top Southern!!Larry C., Owner
We’ve been renting through Southern Vacation Rentals for several years. They have done an excellent job for us. We trust them to not only rent out our condo, but to also take very good care of it. Working with such a dependable company makes renting a much more stress free experience!Rudy V., Owner
Southern has managed my beachfront property since 2014. These folks have done an incredible job in maintaining and representing my property. When ever there my have been any minor issues, (and all properties have some once in awhile) the company has responded immediately to insure the renters vacation is undisturbed and handled to the renters upmost satisfaction. I would like to mention that Southern has a lady by the name of Christina Naes that represents my property and many more. She is an incredible dedicated lady and and will absolutely devote her professionalism in insuring your 100% satisfaction in your beautiful and hard earned vacation. The people with Southern are professionals and will provide you with the vacation you expect and deserve, along with the wonderful memories of a lifetime.Roger H., Owner

This is our third year with Southern managing our beach rental property in Perdido Key and it has been a great experience for us. The person overseeing our property has been very helpful and does a great job communicating with us when something is not quite right. We are not vacant owners, we live in the area and we by the place each the housekeepers get the place cleaned up and this gives me a chance to make sure that if there is any damage from our guests that we can get taken care of immediately. Our is in Villagio. We are very pleased with [our property manager] and Southern.

Southern has managed my property for several years now and done an excellent job. They communicate with me on a regular basis to ensure the condo is kept in great condition for guests. I have heard no complaints from renters who have stayed at the condo and contacted Southern if issues arise. [My property manager] has been the go to person for the past year and has been wonderful to work with.
Southern Vacation Rentals has managed our property in Perdido Key for over two years. We have been extremely pleased with the care and maintenance of our unit and the responsiveness of the staff at Southern. We visit the unit monthly ourselves, and it is always clean and in good repair. Our contact, Christina Naes, has been fantastic helping us plan short term and long term improvements for the unit, coordinating improvements with the HOA, keeping us informed, and promptly addressing any issues that arise. I frequently recommend Southern and Christina to friends who are interested in placing their property in a rental program.Amy A., Owner
We have used several Management Companies over the last 10 years and have used Southern Vacation Rentals for almost 3 years now. They have done a great job of managing our Florida property and have made renting our condo virtually hands off and trouble-free. We have very consistent correspondence with our Portfolio Manager. He and the Southern staff are always very responsive to our needs and with keeping us posted on the status of the condo. Their method of accounting for the expenses and income makes it super-easy to monitor the rental program. They are very consistent and reliable with the transitioning of guests which makes for happy and content guests and clients. We appreciate their services and highly recommend them as your Management Company of choice.Troy M., Owner
My wife and I have owned investment properties for many years. When we came and settled here in the FL Panhandle years ago, we interviewed and engaged the services of various property management companies to oversee our Florida rental properties. After trying some of them, we were not completely satisfied. Finally, we were very fortunate when we hired the services of Southern Management Co. By now, we have been using Southern for 5 continuous years and it has proved to meet and exceed our expectations. We've established a good business relationship with them and appreciate dealing one-on-one with their staff. They are respectful, courteous and knowledgeable; and quick to address any problems. We take pride in our rental properties and Southern knows that. They are focused on cleanliness, maintenance and making sure owners derive the maximum rental revenue. We would recommend Southern to anyone who requires the services they offer. You will not be disappointed.Roberto & Margarita L., Owners

Southern Vacation Rentals have been very good to us, and very thoughtful, when caring for our unit. The rental program has worked well. We have been with them for several years. Do consider them as your agency.
Southern has done an outstanding job for my four units since they have taken over the business. I have increased my revenue per unit at an unexpected amount that I would not have thought possible. Every time I have had an issue about any of the units I was immediately informed and the problem was taken care of immediately. I give Nicki, Corey, and Chace the utmost compliments for their professionalism. I’ll stick with Southern rental company now and forever!Dr. Banach, Owner
Southern is an excellent management company to work with. The reservation staff is very professional and knowledgeable. The commission structure is very generous. The revenue manager is very proactive in keeping our unit rented and makes herself easy to get a hold of. Southern will handle many small maintenance issues themselves which saves us money.Kelly L., Owner
