Costa Rica Online Accommodation Superstore Offers Personalized Offline Service

Costa Rica Bedfinder complements self-help website with time-saving offline service for vacation rentals shoppers.

Dominical, Costa Rica, March 18, 2009 --( Travelers to Costa Rica who are weary of using do-it-yourself websites to look for vacation rentals can now reach out for help with one toll free call or a direct email.

Costa Rica Bedfinder now offers one-stop personal service for offline renters in addition to offering over five hundred vacation rentals on with direct online inquiry feature.

“In other words, we are acting as traditional travel consultants except we are not dealing with flights but lodging,” says the website’s founder, Elaine Turner.

“When customers call or email us,” Elaine says, “we communicate with them on a personal level to ascertain their criteria, not just their budget, needs and preferences, but to understand also their dreams and purpose for the vacation; the greater our understanding the better we can narrow down the choices and provide them with a meaningful shortlist that matches their expectation.”

Presently internet users looking to rent Costa Rican properties have more than a dozen popular self-help vacation rental websites to choose from, the majority of those require users to contact owners or agents individually for each and every property that interests them, and that often means repeating the question-and-answer process multiple times. Seasoned vacation rental shoppers commonly use ‘copy and paste’ to email to a multitude of property owners.

The problem with this approach, according to Elaine, is that the customers tend to lose track when the responses stream in as to which reply relates to which property; “I’m sorry, I have sent out many queries, which property is this referring to?” is often the customer’s response to a property owner’s reply.

“It is no wonder many are finding it easer to let us take over the time-consuming process of search and communicate, and have all their questions answered through one source,” she says.

With Costa Rica Bedfinder, customers who inquire about multiple properties are provided with answers and recommendations in one consolidated email that enables them to easily compare prices, features and amenities, Elaine explains.

Since the launching of less than a year ago, a growing number of vacationers are accessing its service through toll free calls and emails rather than using the direct online inquiry feature, and Elaine attributes this increase to more travelers recognizing the value of service and convenience in the ‘one-stop’ approach.

Costa Rica Bedfinder currently markets vacation rentals in popular destinations such as Dominical, Manuel Antonio, Jaco Beach, Los Suenos, Nosara, Tamarindo, Flamingo and Reserva Conchal.

Property Managers and homeowners who would like to have their vacation rentals represented on are welcome to self-list or contact or call 506.2787.0179.

Vacationers who would like personal assistance in finding vacation rentals can either email or call toll free 1.888.699.0272.
