Give sense to your rental project
Founded in 2012, My home in Saint Barthélémy is the result of our experiences as owners of holiday rental properties and tenants while traveling. My home in Saint Barthélémy is the 1st and unique holiday reservation platform offering a 100% rental incomes guarantee and protecting your property as well.

My home in Saint Barthélémy has been built with common sense and the desire to contribute to local development and environment. Our solution is made of simplicity, freedom and respect.

We consider it is the responsibility of each of us to contribute to a local and efficient alternative for anyone who wants to rent in our beautiful country. Contact us, and let's get to know each other.
Keep your freedom
Listing your property with My home in Saint Barthélémy is totally free and without any commitment. You exchange directly with travelers and accept or not a booking without any penalty.
Listing your property with My home in Saint Barthélémy is totally free. "We earn our life if you earn your". Free listing allows our team to have an objective analysis of each ad prior releasing it online (or not!).
My home in gives owners a total freedom in their exchange with tenants, as well as accepting a reservation or not. We think there is a good reason behind any booking refusal. Therefore, we do not apply any kind of penalty whatsoever as most of the holiday portals do.
Our travelers have already chosen their holiday destination. We select each property, offering a limited number of ads listed for higher and better visibility.
We do not want owners to waste time answering unqualified demands. Our websites can only be found by someone making a research for a specific destination, meaning that each of our websites only appears in the search results when the research refers to its destination. As a matter of fact, travelers sending demands through My home in have, for 95% of them, chosen their holiday destination. Their demands are serious enough, taking also into account that no request can be sent on a property if the traveler has not identified himself through our system.
We wish to give your property visibility and the best possible presentation as well. Each ad submitted through My home in registration form is not always released online. We want to propose tenants enough choice, without compromising on the quality. However, we do not intend to propose an unlimited number of ads. This would not help your ad to perform and this would not give you any motivation in answering demands. We have chosen to limit listings (finding the right balance with the demands), allowing us to know or have a minimum of exchanges with each of you. We do think this approach benefits to all the parties.
At My home in Saint Barthélémy, there is no automatic answer. Our local team is available to answer your questions and to help you responding to your tenants.
We wish to create a smart combination between the practical and security aspects of online bookings, and the pleasure and facility to understand each other while having a direct conversation. Call centres based abroad, special number costing a fortune or automatic answers guiding you through a process that never ends... This is not My home in.
We answer when everything goes well but also when there is a problem to be sorted. We never leave an owner or a tenant facing alone an issue linked to a reservation. We value common sense in our approach.
Payments, Contracts, Deposits
With My home in Saint Barthélémy, your payments are guaranteed. No hidden service fees, you received the amount agreed at the time you accepted the reservation. Contracts are automatically made online. You are free to manage your security deposit or to ask My home in to do it for you.
Online payments are managed with our partner SOCIETE GENERALE Bank.
PAYMENT: My home in takes care of the tenant's effective payments. We give the owner the guarantee of being paid, you do not need to care about your tenant's payments. For obvious security reason, we do not send owners any deposit prior the tenant has entered the property. The amounts paid by the tenant remain on My home in escrow account and are released within 24 hours following the tenant's arrival. In contrary of most of the major holiday portals, we think that those amounts belong to you and are not part of our treasury. We are not entitled to keep the rental price for a longer period than the one needed to ensure everybody's security.
You receive on your bank account a sum being exactly the same as the one mentioned when you accepted the reservation. With My home in, there is no hidden costs or additional costs you get to know later. We wish you to be comfortable with our system and keep transparency at every step.
CONTRACT: My home in provides you with various services in relation with your booking. The first one consists in having your rental contracts automatically made. When you submit your ad on My home in, you provide our system with some information about your property and choose at the same time some variable criteria such as the arrival and departure time, your cancellation policy or your security deposit amount. When a tenant send you a booking request, he has first accepted My home in booking terms. Those booking terms are considered as a rental contract. They have exactly the same form as the contract you would send in case you do a booking on your own. Those booking terms take into account the variable rules you have defined and the description of your property as well. When you validate a booking request, you also accept My home in booking terms. This is how the rental contract is formed. This is as easy as buying a flight ticket! You obviously keep the possibility of printing this contract if needed.
SECURITY DEPOSIT: we can also manage your security deposit if you wish, taking a debit autorisation on the credit card used by your tenant at the time the reservation was made. You keep the possibility of managing the security deposit by yourself.
Incomes guarantee & protection
Unique, My home in guarantee allows you to secure 100% of your rental incomes while offering particularly attractive cancellation conditions to your tenants. Too often neglected but essential, you also benefit from our 1,500,000€ civil liability covers.
RENTAL INCOMES GUARANTEE: tenants look for more flexibility regarding the cancellation terms while booking a property. Most of the time, booking platforms impose owners to apply free cancellation conditions. As a matter of consequence, in the event a tenant cancels, sometime few days prior arrival, there is a lack of revenues for the owner.
In case of cancellation, My home in rental incomes guarantee secured 100% of your revenues from the day the reservation is effective. This applies to any reservation you accept through My home in without any additional cost. Our guarantee is unique and has been set in partnership with a French mutualist insurance company.
Because flexibility has become a key criteria for a tenant while booking, you can adjust the rental income guarantee you benefit from giving your tenant more flexibility regarding the cancellation terms linked to your property.
PROTECTION - CIVIL LIABILITY INSURANCE: for any rental, a tenant must have an insurance to stay safely in your property while you also need one as an owner to rent it out. Those administrative processes are complicated, time consuming and particularly difficult for foreign tenants. Nevertheless, it is fundamental and most of the time not addressed by both parties.
With My home in Saint Barthélémy guarantee, all the reservations processed through our website benefit systematically from civil liability covers to ensure your protection. You avoid dealing with a complicated process with the certainty of being insured and also makes your tenant's life easier!
