-Dawn Astles, owner, The Elements West
Jindabyne Accommodation Centre have provided outstanding management services for our ecocrackenbeck resort, since gaining stewardship of the site in 2014. After tumultuous experiences with previous managers, JAC have brought a level of integrity, professionalism and industry competence to our letting operations at Crackenback. These services include resort caretaking, on site residential managment, property marketing and holiday letting. Through JAC and their affiliate KFN, ecocrackenback has become a show piece resort, guest ratings are fantastic and financial returns to owners have improved significantly. I could not recommend Jindabyne Accommodation Centre and KFN more highly to property owners seeking the regions very best managers of their holiday properties.
