After been one of the first internet provider in 1992 and sold my company In 1999, In Saint-Sauveur, Quebec, Canada, I started my first luxury vacation rental after buying a luxury Swiss style property with indoor pool on the ski hills. A real estate agent told me he could rent to his clients my property for weekends and holidays.
After a couple of weeks I had so many bookings that I couldn't use my property anymore. I said this is a great business and with my technological knowledge of the internet I can make this a great opportunity and do what I like the most.
I bought many other luxury properties and build a great portfolio.
In 2011 the ban on vacation rentals in my region forced me to sell my properties and to change my business model.
I started to look in the Caribbean, Central America, Europe and other countries of the globe for where I would like to start the new business.
I found that many property managers and owners have different problems and guests are also having issues. All of this could be resolve with a proper standardisation and technology. I decided to test my concept with Saint Martin and St Barth in the Caribbean under BOOKSXM.COM to test my business model. It's been great and I found that many technologies out there doesn't resolve all the issues and some are just not doing it right.
I decided to develop this technology with my concept with Dream Villas
