Who is Windcliff Vacation Rentals/Estes Park Homes?   

Perhaps we should start with who we are not.

Windcliff Vacation Rentals/Estes Park Homes is not a venture-capital backed or out-of-town corporate creation here to take a piece of the Estes Park vacation rental “action.”  Our business is not from Granby, Breckenridge, Denver, Austin, Seattle, Silicon Valley or Portland, Oregon.  

Windcliff Vacation Rentals/Estes Park Homes is local — an extension of Windcliff Vacation Rentals which has been renting luxury in Estes Park for 50 years.  Our staff lives in Estes Park, work in Estes Park and plan to be in Estes Park for the rest of our careers and beyond.  Our vendors are Estes Park based whenever possible.  

Windcliff Vacation Rentals/Estes Park homes is full-time and year-round and here for the long-haul.  Even when the tourist rush dies down, our homes continue to rent and in many ways a lot of our work is just beginning as we schedule off-season deep cleans and step-up our marketing to prepare for the next and continue to rent homes to guests who appreciate the value of Estes Park in the shoulder seasons.  

It’s not about “Bookings” – It’s about YOU and YOUR HOME.

Corporate booking companies and their marketing fliers that claim to “increase bookings” simply don’t get it.  Anyone can “increase bookings” for a vacation rental home:  Lower the price and post it to VRBO – done!  But that’s completely ignoring what our homeowners WANT!  

Who is using your home?  Who is cleaning your home?  How much attention to detail is being given in the busy season – especially in “turns” where there is a mere 4-hour gap between check-outs and check-ins?  And do they REALLY care about anything more than making their buck and moving on to the next house?

At Windcliff Vacation Rentals/Estes Park Homes, we do not believe it is about “maximizing bookings” or necessarily even finding more renters.  What our homeowners want is the RIGHT renters at the RIGHT price that makes SHARING their Estes Park home stress-free and financially worthwhile.

We Maximize Total Performance Balance – Not “Bookings”

Estes Park Homes provides the highest returns to homeowners with the least wear & tear on their homes.  We don’t desire to “maximize bookings” but rather to meet the homeowners’ desires which is usually a healthy balance of maximum revenue with minimum wear and tear on their luxury homes.

What it Takes to Run Estes Park’s Premier Vacation Rental Management Business

Operating Estes Park’s premium vacation rental management business is simply not feasible  on 10%, 20% or even 30% commissions.  Any management company offering to do so is coming up short somewhere.   Here is a breakdown of where every commission dollar earned by Estes Park Homes goes:

As you can see, the two largest expenses each year are for our people.  Estes Park Homes pays a living wage that enables all our employees — including housekeepers — to live and raise their families in Estes Park.

Estes Park Homes operates its modestly profitable business on a commission of 40% of rents and 100% of the Cleaning Fee charged to each guest.  Operations at a lower commission rate are simply not sustainable.  Any company offering to do so simply isn’t as committed long-term to the people of Estes Park — and especially your homes — as Estes Park Homes is, period.

Every one of our homeowners will gladly share with you why they feel Estes Park Homes is the best decision they’ve made for the care and rental of their Estes Park home.
