What to Look for in a Vacation Rental Management Company


What to Look for in a Vacation Rental and Management Company

As the seasons change, and the work never seems to end, we all find a way to make time for a little vacation. Whether it’s with family, friends, or just heading out of town for a long weekend of solo reflection, the importance of research when finding the perfect vacation rental has never been more important. Fortunately, researching has also never been easier than it is today, thanks to the amount of refinement in internet searches we have experienced over the last decade. We have more tools available now than ever, and the number of options can seem a little overwhelming. To help you combat the fight with the information overload, we have compiled a list to consider when looking for your perfect vacation rental getaway.

Products and Services

We suggest you to start with the basics when thinking about this category. We all have our creature comforts which we come to expect when renting a home or condo for the sole purpose of relaxing and enjoying time with loved ones in a new place. However, we urge for you to explore what is offered beyond a hairdryer and a few pots and pans for in-house cooking. When looking for a great vacation experience, do you dream of silky white linens and a freshly made bed? Do you look for a team of management professionals dedicated to making sure your stay is the one you’ve been dreaming of? We think these are all important questions to think about when choosing the right property, and most management companies have an information page about their offerings, be sure to check out Simply Steamboat’s by clicking the link and then exploring any of our beautiful property offerings.

Response Times

In our eyes, there is nothing more important than a speedy response time if a guest has any pressing questions or concerns. What is the typical response time should something go wrong? Is there an after-hours service? Luckily there are tools which can serve as a great indicator to a specific company’s response time, such as Facebook  or any of today’s popular vacation rental sites like VRBO or Airbnb.

Property Locations

There is a saying in the real estate industry that describes the three most important things about a property, and they are: location, location and location. Our properties exemplify the importance of this mantra. From many of our properties, expect a brief walk to the base of the mountain or walk out of the building straight to the ski slopes themselves.


At the end of it all is possibly the most important thing to take into account, especially with so many other companies around competing to satisfy your needs as a vacation rental management company, are reviews by our guests and owners.
