Hello! We are the Breitlow Family - Jay and Christina, our daughters Selom, Naomi and son Hunter. We have always had a passion for exploration and adventure, thus deciding to settle down in the most amaging and sought after in vacation destinations - Orlando!
We have always tried to move our family closer to actually living with our vocation and our vacation being one and the same. So we migrated from Africa to Illinois to Colorado and eventually falling in love with Orlando and all it has to offer. Not just the parks, but the beach, the weather, the diversity and neverending entertainment!
We love helping people from all over the world live the Orlando life!
Our homeowners often live and play in their home for parts of the year! Not only allowing our property owners to realize their family VACATION goals but also to maximize earning potential with the latest technologies and with a personal, boutique-like experience.
The year round access to get outside is the best thing for us and our family. We love the diversity of Orlando, the family atmosphere, the parks of course are a bonus for us as we frequent Sea World, Universal and Crayola World often.
We truly love the fact we can spend time in a Jeep Wrangler with the top down and head anywhere for ice cream any day. Have we mentioned the weather yet?
We treat you like family, always going the extra mile to maximize your rental revenue, providing your guests with personalized service and maintaining your property as if it's our own.
Jay and Christina make such a great management team together. They really have a grasp on the ever changing market in Orlando and are consistently updating us on new on pricing fluctuations and rental trends. They also have a great team in place for housekeeping, repairs, pool, and so on. They ROCK!
We have been using Grand Welcome of Greater Orlando as our property managers for about six months now and Jay and Christine have been awesome. They are great communicators and very knowledgeable in the short term rental field. We had concerns with our previous property managers and decided to switch to Grand Welcome. Jay and Christine immediately began to work their magic by helping us update our condo and other behind-the-scenes improvements. And not only does Grand Welcome have lower fees, but we immediately saw higher occupancy in our short term rental. Thanks Jay and Christina!
Grand Welcome of Greater Orlando is in my opinion the best short term rental management company in Orlando. Jay and Christina are very professional, pay attention to detail, go above and beyond and are truly dedicated and attentive to their customer's needs. They do an amazing job taking care of my property and always go the extra mile to make the guests happy.
Jay and Christina are the bomb! We started working with them months before we moved out and our property went under their management. They were always willing to help us design and answer questions to prep our home before listing on Airbnb and Vrbo. They're quick to respond and always go above and beyond to serve our guests with white glove. They even have videos on YouTube for vacation rental owners and investors, to up your homes ADR (average daily rate) and occupancy here in Orlando. Highly recommended!
Grand Welcome of Greater Orlando is a shining example of a business that understands the importance of exceptional customer service. Their dedicated and knowledgeable staff, combined with their commitment to excellence, make them a standout choice. I would highly recommend Grand Welcome to anyone looking for a truly grand and welcoming business venture experience. A great big Thank you from Robson Reis at PARF Investments!
I recently moved management companies and I can’t tell you what a breath of fresh air Grand Welcome of Greater Orlando has been! The owners portal means you have everything in one place and know exactly what’s going on with your property in real time. Everything is so organized and their response to queries and concerns is prompt and spot on. I really feel like we are all part of a team and are working together to provide the best experience possible for our guests. Thank you to Jay and all his team!
Jay and Christina are super professional and always on the ball. I've been blown away by how organized and efficient they are. Everything from cleaning our property to keeping things stocked for guests has been top notch. Out of all the previous property management companies I've used, I never felt so assured knowing my property would be well taken care of AND making some extra money while I’m away. I highly recommend Grand Welcome of Greater Orlando to anybody who has a vacation property in the area.
Jay and Christina have been a pleasure to work with - they are honest, incredibly detailed and helpful, and truly just a joy to be around. You will love working with them!
The typical fee for short term rental property management in the area ranges from 20-40% depending on the level of management and service provided. Some property managers offer partial management at a reduced fee which requires more effort on your part coordinating with cleaning crews, restocking supplies, changing linens, maintenance, etc. We are a local, full-service management company that takes care of EVERYTHING for you while still offering competitive rates. We also utilize our in-house revenue management team to ensure your property is always priced appropriately to maximize your bottom line.
💪 We offer you the best of both worlds. We provide full-service, locally based boutique management, coupled with the advantages of national brand services and pricing. We would love to work with you on a management solution that aligns with your goals.

Before collecting any short-term rental taxes from your guests, you need to be aware of whether any taxes have already been collected for you. Short-term rental marketplaces are required to register with the Florida Department of Revenue and collect Florida short-term rental taxes for hosts when the listing is booked. If taxes aren’t being collected for you, such as when guests book directly with you rather than through a marketplace, you’re responsible for collecting and remitting taxes. The sales tax rate charged is based on the location where the lodging is furnished. A basic room tax, an additional room tax and a municipal room tax may also apply, depending on the location of your short term rental property.🏡 To streamline this process and ensure full compliance, you can let us handle the tax collection and remittance on your behalf. We collaborate closely with Grand Welcome corporate and a local tax professional to collect and remit taxes on behalf of properties under our management. This approach allows you to focus on your other priorities while we handle the essential tax responsibilities, simplifying your life as a property owner.
