In 2012 Alanna Miel first built two rental properties in the Olivia Beach Community in Lincoln City, Oregon. In 2013, she began renting them through a local vacation rental services company, but was unsatisfied with the results—18 months’ worth of rentals with only 50% occupancy in peak season, and only marginal shoulder season occupancy—sometimes going a month at a time without a single rental.
In August, 2014, Alanna Miel gave notice to this local provider, and began the process of managing the rentals herself. By 2017, these two, single-bedroom units were bringing in a combined six figures in annual revenue, while enjoying over 86% occupancy in shoulder season, and 95% in peak season with an average overall satisfaction rating of 5 stars out of 5 in:
- Listing Accuracy
- Guest Communication
- Cleanliness, and
- Check In
These results have been built upon providing unparalleled guest service like one would receive from a first-class hotel or luxury accommodation. In February 2018, Alanna Miel incorporated a new property management company called “Sweet Haven Rentals” to complement her existing rental offerings to meet the needs of overflow guests, and to serve her peers in the Olivia Beach Community—many of whom had experienced similar frustrations with rental management services.
