Heart Homes, a Vancouver based vacation rental management company leads the way for guest safety and security and addresses homeowner’s liability

Heart Homes, which manages vacation rental homes in Vancouver, Whistler and Tofino, British Columbia will be Canada’s first vacation rental management company to participate in a safety and security certification program for short-term rental properties. Heart Homes has committed to having their entire portfolio of rental properties certified to the new standard of guest safety and security.

“The certification goes beyond basic safety and security” notes Wolf Wörster, Chief Marketing Officer for CertiStay, the organization behind the certification. “Our safety and security committee has adopted best practises in the areas of safety and security as a part of the CertiStay certification program. It’s a win-win-win situation: Guests can sleep well at night knowing that their accommodation is safe and secure; owners limit their liability while treating their guests to the same level of safety they expect themselves, and communities win by providing a safer tourism destination.”

CertiStay is backed by a senior team of industry experts including Terry Jones, who was the Founder of Travelocity and the Founding Chairman of KAYAK.

“HeartHomes is happy to be affiliated with CertiStay and cover our owners to the highest standard. Making the hosting process safe, secure, and easy is our primary concern, and CertiStay makes it possible for our owners to rest easy knowing their homes are covered to the maximum degree. Until now, there hasn’t been a comprehensive insurance to cover our owners, especially from a third-party liability standpoint. CertiStay has pioneered this new full-spectrum insurance coverage for owners and we’re very excited to be involved.” say Ben Goresky and Steve Parr, co-owners at
