Just a few of our happy owners comments
We're absolutely delighted that we chose to advertise Eilean Sionnach Lighthouse Cottage with Coolstays and we have found the Gold level subscription to be absolutely worth the investment. Claire and the team are so proactive at promoting our property that we've barely had to do anything ourselves! Since advertising with Coolstays we've been featured in The Daily Mail, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, had the front cover and a six page spread in Scotland on Sunday's /Homes and More/ supplement. Most recently, we also appeared on Channel 4's new staycation show 'Extraordinary Escapes with Sandi Toksvig!' We would never have been able to secure such brilliant media coverage on our own. All of that is over and above Coolstays own regular blog posts and newsletter communications, in which we have been included multiple times. Coolstays have a huge subscriber list of discerning travellers who seem to appreciate that it's worth paying a little more to stay somewhere truly special. Finally, we should mention that Claire, John and the team are absolutely lovely to work with. Even though they look after properties all over the world, we feel we have a personal relationship with them and they are always quick to respond to emails and phone calls. It's this level of service that really makes the difference. We plan to stay with Coolstays for as long as our property qualifies for 'Cool' status!"

Coolstays has proven, beyond doubt, that it's possible to be a small company - dealing personally, with insight and care, whilst also holding a big company growth focus. Most importantly for us, they are fully switched onto and leading in 21st century tech adoption - as required by the Instragram-loving travel consumer.

We're really pleased to be a Coolstays property. Claire and the team are really personal yet professional, and we've found that Coolstays guests tend to be great - friendly, easy and polite! However, it's the promotional side of things that we've really seen the value in, Coolstays have worked really hard to make our accommodation stand out. As a result we've had great social media exposure as well as fantastic PR through Coolstays - the targeted, national coverage has been a huge help in raising our profile and bookings. And after being featured in their beautifully presented blogs and mailers, we've seen a big increase in bookings and enquiries."
- Georgina Fulton, Elmley National Nature Reserve
It's a pleasure to work with Coolstays, we get lots of enquiries from them and more importantly the conversion rate is good! The enquiries can be handled directly via email or through their message board - a feature I particularly like! They have also worked with us to boost enquiries when things go quiet and take advantage of media and PR opportunities. It's nice to be part of a beautiful portfolio and be able to recommend their other properties with confidence too!

Our listing with Coolstays went live and within 24 hours the whole of August and September were fully booked. I couldn’t be happier to provide a testimonial for the Coolstays team, working with them has been incredible. It is a small team and they really get to know you and your business and make you feel like you are part of the Coolstays family. Setting up the listing – the design team walked me through how to set up a listing and the ongoing technical support is fantastic. Their website is fantastic! The online owners area and messaging board are very easy to use and the calendar sync is pretty much immediate so you always show up-to-date availability. Enquiries and Bookings – We have literally had thousands of enquiries through the Coolstays website and they account for approx. 75% of our total sales to date – all of this is commission free! Social Media and Press – Coolstays regularly shares our content online to their thousands of followers and we have been featured in their email newsletters and have even made it into the national press through Coolstays connections. Value for Money – Absolutely! The listing paid for itself within minutes of us going live. We are extremely happy customers and plan to remain with Coolstays into 2021 and beyond.”

Thanks so much! Your site gets way more enquiries than Airbnb! I’m amazed! Initially I thought I just wanted to support a local UK site but now I realise it was a wise business decision too. Also, your writing is beautiful!
