Whichever service you sign up for on osaapa.com, you are free to cancel/unlist as you please. All we ask is that you give us 30 days notice if you do choose to unlist your home with us.
To some degree, yes. While osaapa.com does not work exclusively with luxury properties, we do focus on upper-end rentals in desirable locations.
Also, we have a standard 240 point system to rank the property. We will look at your home and let you know if we feel it will be a good fit for our program.
Yes. We ask that you provide as a homeowner – like furniture, appliances, cookware, and dinnerware. We will work with you to make sure that you have everything in place. Well decorated homes tend to rent at a higher frequency, and we always encourage owners to have a home that shows well.
That’s up to the discretion of each homeowner.
What you want to allow and what you do not want to allow can easily be configured in the system. When we screen the potential guest, we make sure that the profile matches your requirements.
We will collect GST required of your vacation rental, put them into our owner escrow-style account, and may remit on your behalf. Each reservation has taxes added to the amount of the rental. You do not need to send us extra money to pay taxes, nor do you need to file with your lodging authority.
Host is personally responsible for all other taxes (besides GST) that are liable to the authorities.
Login to osaapa.com and thereafter go to My Account/Vendor Dashboard. On the dashboard you have full control over everything. From the dashboard you can access various types of real time reports too.
If you just want a monthly report or are not tech savvy, do not worry, You will get a monthly statement from us that details how much rental revenue you earned, how much tax we collected and will pay on your behalf, and any charges that you may have incurred during the month (for example, if you wanted your home cleaned for your own stay or if you had us install a new TV, etc.) Your Account Manager or Property Inspector will be happy to guide you through your owner statement.
osaapa.com’s secure payment system means you never have to deal with money directly. Guests are charged before arrival and hosts are paid automatically by direct deposit (NEFT/RTGS) depending on their status and ranking as follows:
- Host (Vacation Rental Vendor): 2 to 4 working days after the rental is complete
- Host w/Marketing Service: 1 to 3 working days after guests check-in
- 5 Star Host w/Marketing Service: 2 to 3 working days post refund deadline

We set separate rates that vary based on day of the week and time of the year. For example – mid-week days will be set at one price and weekends at another; holidays and peak periods will likely be set higher and off-season prices are usually set a bit lower. We set these initial prices based on several factors like input from each owner, characteristics of the home (size, amenities, location, recent remodels, etc.), comparable home prices in the area, and guidance from our local General Manager. As the homeowner, you have the option to set your floor rate – which we will never price your home lower than.
Once we agree on the initial pricing, we ask you if you want to be included in our dynamic pricing program. Most hosts decide to participate. Once in the program, we watch the performance of your unit and make pricing adjustments as needed. The key is to monitor and adjust pricing up or down based on actual market demand. We monitor conversion rates of your rental at initial pricing and adjust up or down according to how well the rental is booking. It is an ongoing process that is always a top priority.
We monitor the market availability calendars on sites like VRBO and HomeAway, we use powerful third party pricing & analytics tools, we receive hotel pricing reporting from RateGain and benchmark every home’s inquiry and reservation volumes against historical numbers and comparable homes.
Here are just a few examples of the many ways we adjust your pricing to make you more rental income:
- If your home is booking more quickly for comparable times of year than other homes in your area – this may be an indicator that your price is too low and we may adjust your nightly rate to make it higher.
- If your unit has last minute availability and has openings within the next two weeks, we may apply different levels of discounts to try and get that last minute vacationer who is used to getting a last minute deal.
- If we notice large periods of time that are farther in advance that have lower than expected occupancy, we may lower the nightly rate. As occupancy fills in, we will make adjustments to raise the nightly rate back up.
Our Emergency Care Team is available 24/7. Guests can call, text or email our team at all hours with any issues. Your guests will actually never know your name for privacy reasons – unless you elect to tell them. We’ll take the call and dispatch the appropriate vendor w/Inspector. We pay the vendor and then put the bill onto your homeowner statement – you don’t have to worry about paying out-of-pocket for anything unless it happens to be a major repair. We do not charge any additional fees for emergencies.
Please know that we have a strict policy of evicting guests upon any sign of noise, partying, or over-occupancy. We want guests to enjoy themselves, however, we do not tolerate abuse at your property and contractually have heavy measures in place to evict and/or charge additional fees.
