Best Beach Getaways is one of the most successful vacation rental property management companies in the country. Their portfolio consists of over 400 properties in Florida, and they have several office locations across the Sunshine State.
As their short-term rental portfolio grew, Best Beach knew they needed help because doing things manually and in-house just wasn’t cutting it. They were spending an incredible amount of time on mundane but important tasks. That’s when they turned to Escapia for their PMS choice and to Beyond for their dynamic pricing tool.
“It would be easier for me to estimate the time it took in months rather than days or hours,” said Jim Devos, President of Best Beach Getaways, when talking about how they used to set pricing. “It was a lot of manually-intensive work. We had three staff who would hand-enter pricing for 300 properties with 26 season adjustments. We had to then make sure we were pricing effectively against the competition. It gobbled up an incredible amount of staff time.”
By combining Escapia’s ability to manage hundreds of vacation rental listings with Beyond’s dynamic pricing tool, Jim and his team not only manage their portfolio more effectively, they’re able to bring on more clients and make more money than they ever dreamed possible.
There is still a lot of uncertainty in the market,” Jim said, ”but I am sure of one thing—we wouldn’t be where we are today, and wouldn’t be able to go where we want to go, without Escapia and Beyond.”

Best Beach isn’t the only company that’s seen success by working with Escapia and Beyond. In a recent review, Beyond took a look at the performance of their clients in Florida who use Escapia compared to those who don’t and found that, on average, they’re able to generate 54% more revenue per listing and 56% more number of nights per listing.

This dramatic increase in revenue and bookings is directly related to Beyond’s dynamic pricing tool, which automatically increases rates when demand is high to capture more revenue and decreases rates when demand is low to capture bookings.
The short-term vacation rental industry is red hot, and Escapia and Beyond’s clients in the Florida Panhandle and around the country are seeing tremendous success.
