Breckenridge Ski and snowboard rentals, how to get great service and a good discount.

There are an ever expanding variety of Breckenridge Ski and snowboard rental companies in town. Probably upwards of 25-30 Breckenridge ski rental companies inhabit The town in all shapes and sizes. You have the typical main street storefront shop that can rent you skis, boots, and sell you a pair of gloves and a hat while you wait.

They typical Breckenridge ski rental shop experience is this- find a shop without a line out the door, wait in line, fill out a form, wait in line, walk up the stairs, wait in line, try on a boot, wait in line, pick out a ski, wait to have bindings adjusted, wait in line to pay, take your gear to your car, try to fit your rossi 190's in your rented Toyota prius, attempt not to slit your throat on the ski edges protruding into the front seat. Sound fun right!?

There is another option for those of you who would rather check in to your Breckenridge vacation home and have your skis brought to you.

Breckenridge Resort Managers has partnered with Ski Butlers to bring convenience and great service to our guests. Additional, if you book with us, and rent your gear through ski butlers you will receive a 10% discount on your rentals.

IS Breckenridge property management the same as Vacation rental management?

The short answer is yes and no. Breckenridge property management and Breckenridge Vacation rental management are very different services, yet they usually coexist as necessary adjuncts to one another. Here is an explanation of what each service actually is, and how they work together to form a common service, commonly known as Breckenridge property management.

Let’s explore the less complicated of the two, Breckenridge Property Management. In essence, this type of management boils down to making sure a home is taken care of and maintained for an out of town owner. This type of management does not involve renting the property, only caring for it.

Duties of a Breckenridge property manager include-Weekly checks of the home, reporting any maintenance issues, assisting to correct any maintenance issues, cleaning of the home as requested, maintaining utilities, and responding to any emergency calls.

Breckenridge Vacation Rental Management is a totally different type of management. This type of management revolves around short term renting an owners property to generate income for the owner. This is done with most second homes in Breckenridge and usually offsets some of the expense of owning a second home.

Breckenridge vacation rental management consists of the following- Marketing a property for rent, responding to potential guest inquiries, booking nights in the home, collecting payment, checking in/out guests, ensuring guests do not cause any damage or loss to the property, providing guest services to enhance vacations, scheduling housekeeping following guest vacations, reporting maintenance issues, correcting maintenance issues, billing owners for expenses, disbursing payment of revenue to owners, accounting for all revenue and preparing financial documents for tax purposes.

As you can see, Breckenridge property management and Breckenridge Vacation rental management are very different. The vacation rental part is much more complicated and labor intensive than the plain property management. However, they do share some of the same responsibilities, for instance- Maintaining the property, checking for maintenance issues, repairing maintenance issues, cleaning.

Most owners that rent their property through a rental agency get both Breckenridge property management as well as vacation rental management. Every time a guest vacations at an owners property, all the responsibilities of a property manager are carried out as part of the vacation rental.

So, if you are looking for Breckenridge property management services, or Breckenridge Vacation Rental Management services, Resort Managers can do either or both. We have a wide variety of management plans that include full service management to a single clean. We would be happy to provide you with a proposal or answer any questions you may have.

Great places to vacation in the southeast- Florida, Texas, Alabama vacation rentals

These are some sample seasons and rates for a 2br unit, beachfront, in the southeast region. Region- Southeast- Includes Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The southeast vacation region offers overall warm weather during their summer or “peak “season, which usually lasts from mid April to early September. Most, if not all, vacations in this region are beach and ocean related (excluding Disneyworld). The closer to the mouth of the Mississippi River you get (between TX and LA), the less clear the water becomes. Summer in the sand would define this area the best. The beaches from Orange Beach, AL to the panhandle of FL have warm and clear water and seem to be the most affordable. However, watch out for jellyfish.

Breckenridge kingdom days- Celebrate our 150 yr history at Kingdom Days in Breckenridge

One of the first large summer events that takes place in Breck is Kingdom days in Breckenridge. Basically, kingdom days is our celebration of the rich 150 year history of Breckenridge. Years ago, during the birth of Breckenridge and through the 1930’s, the Omnipotent map makers of the time neglected to put us on national maps. Out of spite, and most certainly in jest, local members of the community adopted the phrase, Kingdom of Breckenridge, in response to this oversight. If you won’t recognize us, we will recognize ourselves.

Eventually, those in the mapping industry saw fit to officially recognize Breckenridge as a mappable town. However, the term kingdom of Breckenridge remained on the greeting sign at the south end of town for dozens of years after, symbolizing the unique and defiant nature of the town and the people of Breckenridge.

In Celebration of the town’s colorful nature and extended history, Kingdom days is held every year. Festivities include-

The annual Breckenridge town party at the riverwalk center, which includes, food, petting zoo, booze, and games.

Museum tours of our historic district

-Live music

-An old fashioned gunfight (staged of course, we have progressed as a town over the years)

-The annual outhouse races (yes, that’s right)
