Win – win! Wonderful vacations are created by an Owner Vacation Rental Property at popular locations all around the world, and many can buy and afford their own beautiful recreational property or second home – all thanks to those experienced travelers who have awesome holidays.
Such is the case with our spectacular Best Sun Peaks condo at Canada’s 2nd largest and most popular family friendly all season ski resort - Sun Peaks Resort in British Columbia, Canada.
We loved the resort and wanted to be able to enjoy the many family-friendly activities that are available year-round (see Sun Peaks summer activities or winter activities for examples) and we absolutely fell in love with everything about the Stone’s Throw condo.
But with our limited vacation time, as well as the high cost of real estate in Sun Peaks and elsewhere in the world, we knew it was out of reach.
That is, however, until we purchased our wonderful piece of Sun Peaks real estate and listed it as an Owner Vacation Rental Property.
Our condo is listed on several different vacation rental websites now, but the site that by far gives us the most visibility, the most qualified and wonderful guests, and is the easiest to operate was HomeAway/VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner).
- Allows us to purchase a wonderful ski resort property for year-round family enjoyment and easily rent it out during periods when we couldn’t enjoy it
- Allows us to share our second home with other visitors from around the world and helps them to create their own wonderful memories
- Allows us to cover our operating costs and more, thereby allowing us to have an even nicer property than we otherwise would have
- Simple to set up and operate, and safe, low cost, seamless payments of rental revenue and refund of security deposits to our guests
