Hosts Submit Their Property
Listing hosts submit their property on the Dock Skipper website. This process takes only a few minutes to complete and creates a professional overview of the listing. It is completely FREE to list your property and offer it as a short term rental for stays of 30 days or less. If you would like to market it as a long term rental (or both) there is a $29/year insertion fee. Why is this?
Let The Discovery Begin
People from all over the world search and discover listings on Dock Skipper. Once a perfect listing is found, the renter can request to book their stay. If it is a short term stay (under 30 days), Dock Skipper generates a booking request to be approved by the listing host. If it is a long term stay, we simply connect you with the listing host where you can discuss your needs in more detail.
For short term stays, the host will respond to your booking request within 24 hours providing an invoice for the requested stay. They can also include any up-charges for electrical, water, laundry services, bicycle rentals, etc. if any of this is available at the location being booked. For long term stays, the host will respond with further information on the listing, how they handle contracts and typically payment information.
Payment Is Made
Once a listing hosts approves your reservation, you will receive an email and have 24 hours to complete the invoice payment. Short term stay payments are handled directly through Dock Skipper. Once payment is made, your booking is complete and you are all set to arrive at the listing!
On the specified arrival date, the renters will arrive at the listing. Providing it is a short term stay that Dock Skipper has already collected payment for, we will disperse the funds to the listing host 72 hours after the arrival date.
The renters have a great stay at the listing. They depart on the required departure date, new memories are made, and you're ready to book your next stay on Dock Skipper. You can also review the previous listing you stayed at to let others know about your great experience. Listing hosts can also review the renter, letting other hosts know they can be trusted.
