Having a difficult time selecting a company to care for and manage your home? We understand that it's a difficult choice and a lot of data to sift through to make the right decision. Often, the choice is made after a detailed comparison of services and costs without considering the big picture.We find that there are four areas in which to focus to help you make a decision and make sure you choose a company where you will have a partner for the long-term. 1) Are they a local company?You've looked at the company's website and they look like they're local, but that can be deceiving. More and more "local" companies are owned by large out-of-state corporations and private equity firms interested in building shareholder value for themselves than actually caring for your home.SkyRun Breckenridge is a local company, staffed with long-time locals with deep ties to the community.

5 Fun Things for Teenagers to do in Breck

aaa
1. Riding the GondolaThe Gondola is a fun way to see Breck and its nature and also see one of our ski resorts during the summer. It's completely free and has easy access. The gondola stops at two places and you can get off at any of them or you can stay on until you get back. Super fun to go on with friends and family during the summer and even more fun to go on during the winter if you're looking for a way to get up the mountain to ski or snowboard.  2. Downstairs at Eric’s This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to with my friends or family. It offers great food, great service, and a huge arcade room. It’s very affordable and is even owned by our mayor. The arcade room offers many fun games, activities, and at least 15 flat-screen TV’s in the main room....

Find your inner peace in a gravity-free/sensory-free environment!I recently FLOATED and discovered a level of peace and tranquility I had never experienced before… that was after I panicked, wondering how was I going to float for an hour doing anything and thrashed about wildly as I fought the feeling of floating without effort.Arriving at the StudioLet me set the stage…. I was greeted by a friendly receptionist who introduced me to my float experience.  The moment you walk into the VIVE Float Studio in Frisco, Colorado your senses are overwhelmed with peaceful scents and music.  The receptionist gave me tour of the Studio which includes a tea room for relaxing after your float and a separate area with lockers and hair dryers to get ready after your float.  Then she introduced me to the features of my personal Float Room which included an open shower, changing area and an enclosed little float...

Is the weeklong rental dead?

Is the weeklong rental dead?
No, but it might be on the endangered species list. It's easy to think that increasing your nightly minimums is a good strategy to boost revenue. There is often an inverse relationship between minimums, occupancy and revenue. A solid understanding of the rental market in your area is key to finding the right balance between nightly minimums that will actually drive increased occupancy and minimums that will kill your reservations. I’ve increased my minimums. Where have all my rentals gone? Owners are often surprised when I tell them that the average stay in Breckenridge, Colorado is around 3.5 nights. This sounds low, but it’s actually within trends that we are seeing nationally.  There are some areas of the US that still thrive in the weekly rental market. One market that comes to mind is the Outer Banks In North Carolina. If you’ve ever rented a beach house there, you know that...

Looking for a Vacation Rental Management company in Breckenridge?

Looking for a Vacation Rental Management company in Breckenridge?
Know what you’re getting…6 questions to ask potential property management companies. Selecting a vacation rental management company in Breckenridge can be a daunting task. Not all companies are created equal and it’s important to understand the differences.  From commissions to fees, selecting a company that is focused on your goals is imperative. 1) What is your commission and fee structure? Do you charge credit card fees, marketing fees, etc.? Everyone wants to know how much something cost before they buy, but this question is not that simple when selecting a company to manage your home. Most companies are commission based, also called the split. Companies in Breckenridge take between 25% - 50% commission depending on the company and what services they offer.  The commission is only part of the question as most companies have complex and often undisclosed fee structures. These fees may include advertising, media, linen, credit card, maintenance as...

Escape Room Breckenridge - A Locals Perspective

Escape Room Breckenridge - A Locals Perspective
I have not participated in the Escape Room experience before, and because of that I found myself uncertain of what to expect and weary that it wouldn’t be fun.  Boy was I wrong!  The Escape Room was a thrill, and I cannot wait to do it again with friends and family!  I would highly recommend the Escape Room as a fun evening activity to accompany dinner or drinks; or as a fun “off-day” activity.  The entire experience takes a little over 1 hour and reservations are highly recommended.  With a short tutorial and 2 minute video your group of 4-6 people is locked in a room (set to a theme) and you are charged to discover and solve clues in order to “escape” the room within 60 minutes.  Its basically CLUE set to real life and its a thrill to work against the clock to solve the mystery.  The Escape Room...

FREE Lake Dillon Kayak Tour - A SkyRun Exclusive

FREE Lake Dillon Kayak Tour - A SkyRun Exclusive
As the summer ramped down, our family had the opportunity to participate in a SkyCard Summer Activity - a Kayaking Tour on Lake Dillon!  I made the reservation through Xplorie and the process was very simple.  Our Xplorie representative was friendly and patiently walked us through the entire reservation process explaining the types of tours, and days and times available.  We reserved a Sunday morning 1.5 Hour Family Tour.  That morning we arrived 15 minutes early to find parking, walk to the docks, sign-in, and get life jackets.  Having never kayaked before I was pleased the Guide did a quick tutorial on how to properly hold and row the oar.  Within minutes, all the families were happily loaded into double kayaks and we were off!   The Lake Dillon Kayak Tour Guide was wonderful - she made everyone feel comfortable and stopped frequently for the group to gather back together.  She...
