Interaction with guest

I live in London but I have someone who manages the property and is at hand if anything goes wrong. He also maintains the garden and pool. I also have a cleaner who cleans the house throughly after each stay. I am always at the end of my mobile and any problems are immediately attended to. I have been renting for several years and I am happy to say, 99.9% of guests have a wonderful time and a few return year after year. I would say, I am far away but I easily build up a warm rapport with guest through emails and phone.
