If you have never considered short-term rentals for your Park City vacation home, now is proving to be an opportune time to do so. The summer travel season is upon us, but in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, travel habits are shifting. People want to get away from crowded cities where they’ve been confined to connect with family and the outdoors, now more than ever. How they plan to travel is expected to change based on a recent survey conducted by MMGY Travel Intelligence and the U.S. Travel Association. Most Americans feel safer traveling in their own vehicles up to 500 miles or so from home, unless flying privately, as many Summit Luxury Vacations’ guests tend to do. Most local events may have been canceled, but Park City’s elevation and abundant recreation make it an ideal summer destination for families, especially since many camps across the country will not be operating this summer. As a result, travelers are looking for longer-term rentals. Instead of just a few nights, they desire a couple of weeks to even a couple of months. Hotels are not ideal for longer stays, and many are concerned about cleanliness, the ability to social distance, and countless touchpoints.

The demographic that SLV attracts has discovered they can easily work remotely. They can stay connected and tend to business while their children have a blast with a variety of outdoor diversions in and around Park City. When the evening falls, our homes offer expansive entertaining areas for guests to connect over delectable meals created by private chefs, an outdoor barbecue complemented by dry, mountain air and magnificent scenery, and sharing stories around the fire pit over s’ mores. Families from unbearably hot markets nearby like Phoenix, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, and the Salt Lake Valley nearby are making plans to flock to Park City for summer fun. All of these factors make this summer especially appealing for owners of Park City’s luxury homes to rent their properties. Locally based, SLV can help you capitalize on this trend with peace of mind during the periods you’re not using your home. And we have the ability to expertly maintain and manage every aspect of your property to eliminate the hassle of dealing with different entities to meet your needs. New homeowners who partner with us will enjoy a complimentary deep clean to ensure your home is expertly sanitized in advance of your first visit or first rental. Intensive cleaning protocols will be offered in advance of new reservations or your visit.

Perhaps you have already designated your home for nightly rentals but are less than satisfied by the rental property company you engaged. This is why Summit Luxury Vacations was created. We appeal to Park City vacation homeowners who have had negative experiences renting their homes or never considered doing so until they discovered our elite services, highly personalized attention, and security protocols. Specializing in maintaining a small portfolio of Park City’s most luxurious homes and offering highly customized packages and services renders SLV a unique option in a rather unregulated, over-saturated, and often unprofessional industry.

SLV is committed to ensuring the privacy of our owners and guests, with most of our services provided by in-house staff and a select group of trusted partners. Homeowners appreciate the fact that we don’t require that their properties be available during peak periods or for a minimum number of days each year. We understand your Park City home is your treasured retreat, and you should enjoy it how and when you wish. When not doing so, we are available to maximize your investment by renting it to affluent travelers who are thoroughly vetted with background checks.

A homeowner in the prestigious Park City community, The Colony, says he never entertained the thought of offering his expansive vacation home for short-term rentals prior to discovering the SLV team. “They allow me to have maximum flexibility. SLV’s local, trustworthy staff responds to our needs quickly, providing exceptional services to my family and our renters,” says client Josh Tarter, a CEO, and entrepreneur. “I have an added layer of security knowing who is in my house, serving our guests for babysitting, massages, and catered meals by a private chef. The larger, less personalized vacation rental companies did not give me this level of confidence. My expectations are continually surpassed, and I value the fact that they are small and selective, yet highly professional.”

SLV’s Business Model Entails:

  • Specializing in a limited, exclusive portfolio of ultra-luxury homes
  • Offering customized packages, knowing no two homeowners or properties are alike
  • Allowing homeowners to determine the availability of their home
  • Conducting background checks on guests to ensure the safety and security of each home
  • Having local staff and insider knowledge of the Park City community
  • Managing personalized services by in-house staff instead of 3rd party contractors
  • Ensuring privacy and security for high-profile owners and guests
  • Marketing efforts that target an affluent traveler demographic
