Shasta & Siskiyou County Property Management for Vacation Rentals.  At Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, we don’t just manage properties; we craft unforgettable experiences. Our exceptional property management and proactive marketing services set new standards for vacation rentals, not only in Shasta & Siskiyou County but also for owners across the United States who seek our consulting and advisory expertise. Here, we’ll dive into the heart of our property management services, setting the stage for a remarkable journey.  Make sure to watch the voice over presentation HERE or below.

Objective: Best Vacation!

Welcome to Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, where we redefine the standard of vacation rental property management and proactive marketing. Unlike traditional property management, we pride ourselves on what we call “Experience Management.” In a competitive and saturated short-term rental market, being the best, different, and exceptional is essential. We focus on ensuring that our guests have an unforgettable vacation, and we cast a wide but targeted proactive marketing net throughout the US. This approach attracts quality guests who are willing to pay more because they know their vacation will surpass expectations.

#1 Market Position

Our impressive market position speaks volumes. We are the undisputed #1 choice around Shasta Lake, managing many of the top revenue-producing Shasta short-term rentals. With 14 spectacular homes, (and more currently in process), over 700 five-star reviews, 800 returning guests, a mailing list of 3000, over 15,000 social media followers and a website drawing at times over 35,000 unique visitors per month, we stand as the most visited lodging organization in Shasta & Siskiyou County.

2X to 4X Revenues

Homes under our management are producing 2x to 4X+ the average of homes in the area.

Our Story

Our story is one of passion and dedication. After multiple decades of enjoying Shasta Lake and the many things to do throughout the area with our own family, we acquired Retreat 1 as our first vacation rental, followed by Retreat 2. Later, we began managing our son’s home (Retreat 3). Due to growing demand from others, we expanded in 2021 and now manage a total of 12 homes plus the 2 we own. We are committed to creating remarkable experiences for guests and solid investments for property owners.

Full Service Model

Our full-service model ensures we handle all aspects of property management, from customer interactions and revenue maximization to 24/7 crisis management, supplies, cleaning, maintenance, $1K+ security deposits, and comprehensive rental agreements. We use best in class on-line reservations systems that cover everything professionally and efficiently while providing a powerful online portal for our owners with real-time data on revenue and expenses.  We send detailed monthly statements along with the proceeds for that month to each owner.  No more collecting receipts and organizing them at year end as we do that for you and make taxes easy.

NO Upfront Fees, Setup Costs or Mark Ups

One of the key advantages of choosing our property management services is that we charge no upfront fees, setup costs, or markups. We believe in making an investment in you and your home, and we only receive compensation when guests have rented your property.

Our objective (and track record) has been to increase our owners revenues at least enough such that our compensation is fully absorbed by the revenue growth.  If done, as we have in the past, we will absorb all the work and headaches including those text messages or calls in the middle of the night, and you will end up with more in your pocket than if you did it on your own.

The 'Retreat" Collection

At Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, we excel in marketing homes to make them stand out from the rest. Properties with lakefront, lakeview, or mountain view locations, private hot tubs and pools, serene private or special locations, spacious decks, game rooms, ample boat parking, and close proximity to the marina and boat ramp are some of our current specialties.  Let us bring out your home’s unique value and appeal whether it is similar or very different than our current homes.  We are interested in expanding throughout the two counties.

Contact & Launch

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re eager to discuss our program in more detail and see if it’s a good fit for both parties.  In this meeting we will also share with you specific performance results of our current homes including total gross revenue and provide you an estimate of what we think we can produce for your special home.

If we mutually agree to move forward, we can swiftly add it to our websites, marketing outreach, and documents, making it accessible to our returning guests who appreciate the variety and consistency of our offerings.
