Vacation Property Management Solutions for Northern Door County

Home » Owners

Our concept is simple and built on our own experience. 25 years ago I came up to Door County to work in Fish Creek during the Summers and had a dream to own a home in Door County one day.  We have owned and managed rental properties for nearly 20 years and in 2017 my wife August and I purchased our first vacation home in Door County on Rowleys Bay. We worked hard and built a small business to create an outstanding vacation home experience for our guests. During this process we learned a lot, including;

  • How to build a marketing system to attract and retain repeat guests
  • The hard way, how to find and retain the best cleaning team in Door County!
  • Navigate all of the short-term rental web-sites to leverage a prospect base of over 7 million customers
  • Build a turnkey experience for guests and owners
  • The big property management firms do not care about your property like you do

Our goal is not to be the biggest property manager in Door County, it is simply to be the best. Our vision is to build a boutique property management company, specializing in Northern Door County vacation homes and to build a small business with less than 10 properties. This will allow us to care for your vacation home like it is ours and provide the following services;

  • Complete property management services including;
    • Custom branding of your home
    • Complete marketing and customer acquisition
    • Your home will be advertised on our Web-site, along with VRBO, Airbnb along with target marketing on all Door County vacation home web-sites, along with our network of Realtors within Door County
    • Cleaning and property maintenance, including lawn care and snow removal
      • Cleaning will be charged to guests and be a pass-through cost, which you are not paying for
      • Lawn care and snow removal will be extra, billed direct to you
      • 20% of net revenue will be charged by Northern Door County Vacations, LLC for vacation property management services
    • Monthly billing and revenue payments, including statement of transactions
    • Through our Web-site, guests will be able to pay for their stay via credit card, or book direct on the home sites like VRBO or Airbnb

      • See the link below to a virtual tour of our Northern Door County Vacation property as an example of our work, along with our Web-site for just our vacation property.
    • No annual contract
      • We believe that it is our responsibility to earn your business and if you are not happy, than we don’t want to tie up any property owner in a long-term contract.  We do have a contract in place to protect you, but we offer you a 30 day notice cancelation in the event that you are not 100% satisfied.
    • Maintenance is charged at cost, with a threshold agreed upon by property owner to communicate prior to doing work

We are passionate about Door County and creating the best guest experience possible! We want to share our passion and proven results to help other vacation home owners enjoy the same success we have had.
