Cuchara Homeowners:

Cuchara Cabin and Condo Rentals is seeking additional properties to add to our inventory.  We are happy to report that our customer base is quickly outgrowing the number of properties we have available.

Our current owners are seeing an average of 60-90 rental nights per season (May 15th-October 15th).  The lower averages are from owners that frequently visit Cuchara over the summer while the higher number of rental nights are in properties completely released to us between Memorial Day and Labor Day.


I have been a resident of the Cuchara area for most of my life.  We moved here in 1988 (I was 9).  The people I work with are the people I went to school and grew up with.  My entire adult working history is in Cuchara (dating back to my position as director of Lift Maintenance and Operations for Cuchara Mountain Resort).  Small town hospitality is my way of life and a big part of my upbringing.  I believe in making everyone that visits Cuchara feel like "part of the family."  In both managing your property, adjusting to your needs AND accommodating the guests, everything is done with a very personal approach.

I have been in the Property Management business, specific to Cuchara for 16 years  which is far longer than any other company in Cuchara!  I've kept the same office since day one.  Originally the company was started by Sandra and Jay under the name Cuchara Vacation Rentals. I purchased the company in 2005 and changed the name for better rankings in alphabetical listings to Cuchara Cabin and Condo Rentals.

I am very active in the community and always put what's best for Cuchara first.  Many may remember my role in starting the relief fund for Cuchara workers during the Spring Fire and my campaign to welcome people back to our unique community or have seen my face on local news when Cuchara needed help.  I led the battle in 2020 to achieve variances for EVERY Cuchara business to open during Covid.

Why Choose ME over AirBnB or VRBO?

The big box booking sites use excellent marketing gimmicks to draw you in.  These gimmicks are centered around heavily populated, tourist destinations with year-round attractions.... and it sure looks great if you don't have to pay a property manager!  Let's discuss the downfalls of skipping over the local, experienced property management company:

1.  AirBnB and VRBO are both charging you a commission on every booking.  The customer also pays a booking fee, cleaning fees, etc.  The end result, YOU make less per rental while the customer pays more!

2.  Who is going to clean your property between guests?  When you find that person, for your own protection they need to be insured or bonded.   This means you're paying a cleaning "company" a premium rate.

3.  Are you sure everything was done right?  You're not here to inspect the property after housekeeping for any mistakes.  You're not here to check for damages after each renter.  This means you'll have to pay someone to inspect your property to ensure the renter is getting a quality experience.

4.  What are you going to do when the smoke detectors start beeping at 2 am?  How about when someone can't figure out the TV or get the internet to work.  What happens when your refrigerator quits working?  Renters expect an immediate response to anything gone wrong... and they should, they're paying good money to stay in your home.  Who are you going to find at 2 am?  How much are you going to pay a repairman if you can find one?

With a local property management company, we have all of these what-if's written into our commission.  We have people on staff to handle a crisis. We have the customer base to book your property.  We do the screening. We handle the quality control.  We manage your calendar.  We provide the supplies. We can adapt immediately to trends.. and most importantly We have the small town relationships that keep people coming back.

When you put the numbers on paper, local property management companies are a much greater value to the property owner and provide a higher quality experience for the guest.

What makes Cuchara Cabin and Condo Rentals the best choice?

We have been here longer than any other property management company in Cuchara's history.  We are the ONLY property management company with an office on Main Street in Cuchara.  We have been in the same location since day one.  This means we have the pleasure of interacting with every guest to build relationships for future business.  This also gives us the most exposure.  Any person in Cuchara seeking vacation rental information gets the advantage of a face-to-face conversation with me.  If you're visiting Cuchara, you're leaving with our information!

My experience specific to Cuchara allows me to notice trends and follow the market closely.  I have the ability to adjust our marketing strategies and pricing immediately to maximize your revenue and ensure guests have an unmatched, personal experience.

It also doesn't hurt having an 80% return guest rate!

With that said:

What's the advantage to renting?

1.  Someone is caring for your home at all times.  You don't have to worry about visiting Cuchara for a relaxing getaway only to find surprises that will consume your vacation.  We also offer winter caretaking so you never have to worry about a pipe freezing on those cold winter nights.  Several owners have switched to us from our competitors simply because of our strong reputation in quality service.

2.  Revenue.  Your property is generating income when it normally would have sat vacant.  Without the Ski Resort, we will never claim to have a property pay for itself, but you will see a significant aid to the home's expenses.  Typically, the profits cover the expenses but not the mortgage. If the resort were to open, you may have walked into a great money making opportunity.

3.  Cleanliness.  No more arriving in Cuchara to spend the next 2 days sweeping and mopping.  Your home is ready to move in when you arrive and someone else takes out the garbage when you leave!

What if I am planning to sell my house?

EXPOSURE!  Many of our guests are long-time visitors of Cuchara.  Most consider purchasing a property at some time.  What better way to help sell your home than allow someone to pay you to try it out for a week!?  We work very closely with All Seasons Real Estate to ensure that our rentals do not interfere with showing the  property.

The Facts:

1.  Rental nights and revenue are impacted by your personal use of the property and specific dates.  We work with many of our owners to provide "suggested" dates to block out based on historical data and likeliness of the property not booking.

2.  None of us can predict future year's revenue, especially considering the current a rapidly changing economy.  On the brighter side, 2020 was one  of our best years.  We are hopeful 2021 will follow!

3. Properties generally take 3 years in a rental program to show their full potential.  Typically, we price them lower for the first year to entice business.  The second year we raise the price as guests are more aware of your property.  The third year is when word of mouth has spread, you have repeat customers for your home and we can almost bet on a sustained revenue for years to come.

Please call or e-mail us if you might be interested or would like further details!
