Property Management

 

The Kimberley Lodging Company creates value for secondary home owners and investors with customized vacation property management. We aspire to provide you with the maximum cash flow returns on your Kimberley investment.

We know that owning a vacation home can be expensive. By making your property available for seasonal and vacation rentals, you can offset the operating costs of having a vacation home.

Since we started our business in 2001, we have developed an effective and efficient system to maximize both owner revenue and owner usage. Some of the ways we achieve this are:

  • Long term, seasonal, and nightly rentals
  • Activity packages (golf, ski, adventure)
  • Insurance Claims

Calculated Marketing Programs

At Kimberley Lodging Company we have a calculated marketing strategy to maximize the exposure of your vacation home. Not only does our website return the highest number of accommodation searches in Kimberley, we have a data base of nearly 50,000 people, a huge network of travel professionals across Western Canada, a reservations system that interfaces with online monoliths like Expedia, Booking, and AirBnB, and an annual marketing budget of $150,000. This meticulous combination of sales mediums makes it easy for us to connect with potential guests from around the globe. As we are in the business of tourism, we know that travel trends change often. Our marketing team is constantly monitoring these trends and always has their finger on the pulse of the tourism climate. For example, we have recently purchased the hardware and software to do showcase 3D virtual tours of our properties. Click here for an example.

As a client of Kimberley Lodging Company, your unit will be included in exclusive discount package offerings.
