The Program:


HomeQwest Development has formed a strategic alliance with highly regarded vacation home property managers who have a large clientele in Europe. With over a decade of successful market experience, they provide a wide range of high-quality services, including:


High-quality villas in desirable locations, such as Cape Coral, with first-rate amenities and European-inspired design.

A track record of over 38,000 successfully concluded leases
Each client receives personalized service from a single point of contact.
A devoted customer base, including many return visitors from the United States and Europe
Rental programs that are tailored to the needs of both property owners and renters
With offices in Switzerland and Cape Coral, we can provide seamless service and support. Their professional handling of every aspect of the rental process, from beginning to end, including simple tenancy agreements and prompt deposit processing, as well as on-the-spot support from their competent German/English-speaking management team, make them the go-to choice for all of your vacation home needs in Southwest Florida.


They provide numerous benefits to our clients as a property management company based in Cape Coral and Switzerland. Their location allows them to attract a diverse range of customers, including European visitors to Florida during the summer and American visitors during the winter. They also provide the option of accepting bookings and making payouts in both USD and EURO. Services also include free marketing efforts such as professional photography for websites and 360-degree tours, as well as handling all correspondence and property administration. They also handle direct billing of sales and tourist taxes and offer personalized advice to customers via email and phone, even on weekends and holidays. With a convenient cancellation policy for owners, a one-month notice period, and a broad reach via newsletters and online portals such as Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube, they stand out as a property management company.



The booking process starts when a customer completes a booking and receives an instant confirmation from our system. Concurrently, the property owner receives a confirmation with information such as the tenant's name, number of guests, and gross rental income. Tenants receive an automatically generated email 14 days before their arrival with all necessary check-in information, such as the key box code. Following that, the tenants will contact the property manager to set up a check-in time. Once the stay is over, the property manager will send us a check-in/out protocol that includes information like the electricity meter readings at arrival and departure, as well as any damages. They will use this information to create a service charge statement for the tenant as well as a statement for the property owner. The net payout will be paid to the property owner after check-out, with a monthly collective transfer made at the beginning of the following month.


Participating in this program as an "exclusive house listing" entails streamlined communication through a designated point of contact, as well as less effort on your part. If you decide to privately rent your house, simply notify us in advance of any private bookings or reservations made by yourself or your family to avoid any conflicts. You will also have access to the administration area of our booking system, which will allow you to monitor the status and occupancy of your property in real time.
