Lay My Hat is what happens when some friends decide that what the world needs is a site for people just like them. People who own holiday rental properties and want to make the most of the internet for bookings.

Whether you need help even firing up your computer, or you are a certified Master of the Web, there’s someone just like you at Lay My Hat:

Alex knows how to open up a computer and add bits, so he’s the Technical Guy.  Alex’s property is in Florida.  Alex is in charge of technology 

 Picture of Linda Linda is new to the rentals game and living proof that a sunny disposition wins bookings. Her properties are on the Costa del Sol in Spain.
