By the Sea Vacation Rental company has opened an Owner-Direct website for all the Cottages and Condos at Oyhut Bay Resort, and managers announce a cost-saving rental program for property owners..

The new company offers first-class onsite housekeeping and other localized services combined with the global advertising, reservations, and services back by the Vortex Organization.

Prior to the recent sale of the resort, the property would have caused property owners to lose the expertise and longest experience that only By the Sea staff have Goldener and Vortex services can claim.

Staff from By the Sea, and its affiliate Goldener Inns, have provided services to the developers of Oyhut Bay for over six years, and spear headed the rental program, owner and guest services. They have hosted tens of thousands of happy guests there.

"This is a new way to bring back those visitors and introduce Oyhut Bay to all those visitors who have yet to experience what is becoming a go-to place on the Washington Coast," said Penny Taylor, head of reservations

The recent sale of the resort would have caused property owners and guests to lose the massive global advertising built up with By the Sea, so the company moved quick to start the Owner-Direct program," said Trina Flanagan, client manager for Oyhut Bay Vacation Rentals. "Now, owners can stay with us or switch to us to get maximum income with minimum effort.

Onsite services are managed by Jackie Martin, who has been the lodging manager for By the Sea for eight years and a member of the Ocean Shores community for over thirty years. The company has as stable of highly reliable cleaners and maintenance personnel who provide hospitality grade services.

"Jackie is well known in the community as providing fabulously clean homes,fast maintenance and 24-7 guest services" said, Penny Taylor, "no one is more reliable than Jackie."

As an incentive to property owners By the Sea is cutting rental commissions IN HALF to get underway. So this is how owners get maximum income with minimum fuss.

"We are a better management alternative for owners who want personal attention and results" said Trina Flanagan. "Owners can call me directly at 360-553-1818 for more information.
