Rye has a growing number of holiday homes, but who works behind the scenes to ensure that they remain maintained and ready for visitors? One such company is Maid in Rye, and you may have seen their vans bustling around the town, servicing the 37 holiday homes that the company looks after.
Established in their offices in Landgate since 2016, and then looking after just 16 properties, this growing business was started by co-directors Lucy Long and Karl Wheeler, both of whom have several years’ experience in the cleaning sector.
They now work closely with a number of the main local holiday-letting agencies.
Karl Wheeler says: “We wanted to bring something new and fresh to the housekeeping services that was not currently being offered to holiday home owners. Attention to detail and providing a five-star service is paramount to our success.” And he adds: “Customer service is also an important part of the service offered and nothing is too much of a problem to ensure guests have the perfect stay.”
[Editor’s note: We understand that holiday homes and second homes, at the last count, represented around 8% of the area’s residential stock, but this figure is increasing.]
