Why choose Chameleon as your Service Provider!
We are a local family run business providing the personal touch you need for a successful Holiday let. We have local knowledge and vast local contacts. Our team consists of a hand selected group of wonderful individuals who have the training, experience, care and knowledge to cater for all your requirements. Our story began at a kitchen table and following hard work, long hours and absolute persistence, we are proud to have achieved what we have done.
Let’s be honest!
We are not going to tell you there was a gap in the market for our services, that simply isn’t true. There was a gap in the local community for a company that looked after and employed their team all year round, despite being a seasonal location. Being self employed in the area is hard, especially a self employed cleaner. Employing and looking after our team year round has enabled us to provide continuity and that all important personal touch. It hasn’t been easy, we started in 2016 with just £50 and a bucket of chemicals. Working long days and investing all the money back into the business enabled it to grow. Looking for the right team members proved challenging, today many of our team have been with us for over 4 years. Local people living in a seasonal town need job security, something we manage to provide, offering an attractive and honest employment package including pension, holiday, company bonuses and a team spirit many sadly lack. Our passion has allowed us to go from strength to strength, starting from that kitchen table, to a single office with our laundry piled in a cupboard, to a disused store room, further extended (three times) with the help and support of our landlord, we cant wait to move into our custom built unit on the well positioned Halwell Business Park. We now employ over 25 staff all year round with our seasonal team coming back year after year to assist with the seasonal workload. By choosing Chameleon as your service provider, you are not only going to receive a reliable and trustworthy service but you are helping a local business provide another local person a guaranteed, happy and rewarding working life.

We know how important that view is to your guest and its often the first thing they will see when entering a property, that’s why we have an in-house window cleaner available. Many of our properties have the most amazing views the area has to offer, window cleaning can be arranged on a weekly, monthly or 6 monthly basis.
Not forgetting about those fabulous outside spaces, many guests are looking for holiday property with a garden to enjoy some alfresco dining. Our in-house gardening team ensures that those outside spaces are fit for your guests arrival.
Don’t forget about those finishing touches!
We do suggest you provide a starter sundry and welcome pack, guests remember these little touches. That’s why we offer sundry packs and welcome packs designed to suit your budget, provided for every guest or a seasonal occasion. Many of our holiday homes provide anything from a pint of milk to a hamper containing local produce. Our dedicated Area Supervisor purchases all the fresh produce on a weekly basis, dictated by bookings.
“I try to go above and beyond for not only my direct superiors but for every single person that I work with, either directly or indirectly, I also do the same to try to have a good relationship with all owners and any guests that I come into contact with”
