Frequently Asked Questions

Creating a New Account

  • How do I create a new account?
  • One of the great things about the site is that it’s simple and easy to use. Just click the ‘how to advertise’ button at the top of the home page (or any other) and this will take you to the advertisers section. Then follow the online instructions to create your own account, which will give you complete control to add, edit and manage your property portfolio online.

    Adding Your Property Advert

  • How do I create my property advert?
  • You use the simple online “advert builder” to create and view your property advert. This can be accessed through your own, password protected area, where you can create and manage all your property adverts. From here you can create new property ads, modify existing ones, add new photos, update pricing and even maintain an availability chart. You can create sample ads and practise until you're happy with your efforts and only then, when you're good and ready, request it to be added to the live site. Basic text details are added first, after which photographs and availability can be added.
  • How do I add my photos?
  • To add photographs to your property advert is a relatively simple process. If you have photos stored in a digital format on your computer, the system allows you to add them through the Administration Console. Simple click on the “add photo” link and you will be asked to select the relevant photograph on your computer and then to click the “upload” button to send the photo to We will then approve the photo prior to it going live on the site.

    The photo must be smaller than 500kb in size

    However, we also appreciate that not everybody has access to digital photographs and therefore your may send the photographs to us via the normal post. All we ask is that you put the property reference number on the back of each photo and include a stamped addressed envelope should you wish them returned. We will scan the photos and have them added to your property listing. This service is offered free of charge.
  • How many photos can I add?
  • You can add up to six detailed photographs of your property and one summary photo, which appears on the summary results page. We recommend the summary photo is an outside view of the property taken on a nice sunny day as first impressions count for everything! People often use the same summary photo as one of the detailed shots too.
  • Once I have finished my advert, how long will it take to become live?
  • Your property will often be approved within the hour, although at weekends this may take a little longer. The aim is to approve all suitable material within 24 hours. If for some reason your property has not been approved after this time, please contact Customer Services who will be happy to investigate for you.

    Ongoing Management of Your Property

  • Can I change my advert in the future?

  • How will I be notified of booking enquiries?
  • The prospective client will contact you directly, either by email or by phone. If by email, the request will follow a standard format and the email subject will read:
