“We have several Evolve homeowners that utilize Book by Owner for their “on-the-ground” property management and have been very impressed with their operation.  They are on top of every detail, and work hard to ensure travelers have a seamless and hassle-free experience during their stay at an Evolve property.  Congrats to the Book by Owner team on providing such a great service to owners and travelers!”

Adam Sherry – CO Founder Evolve Vacation Rental Network

Our condo at Red Hawk Lodge rents like a champ, and it has been gratifying to keep the bulk of my rental income due to Book by Owner’s very reasonable monthly fees. They helped me get started in this industry when we first bought the unit in 2005 by giving me practical, specific marketing advice. Now I let the vacation rental websites bring me the clients, and Mike and Kerry at Book by Owner handle everything else about my reservations for me once I have entered them into their system. It is so simple, and I know I can always count on them for excellent service both to me and my guests.

Also – the keypad on the front door of our unit is fantastic! I pay Book by Owner a nominal monthly fee for this internet-based system and our guests love it!

Just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the new housekeeping program.  Walking into our condo we could feel the difference.  The unit felt clean and the upgrades were nice (kitchen towels, scrubbies, extra paper towels, better linens, etc.). Even the outside chairs were leaning against the railing to prevent them from getting wet and dirty.

Thanks again,

We had a wonderful week in Colorado last week and hated to leave.  I wanted to drop you a note to tell you how impressed we/I were when we arrived at our condo.  We had a little mishap with the door code as you know, but you jumped on it right away.  Thank you.  Also this was my first time back since we started with Book by Owner and when I walked in, I was extremely happy with the cleaning, the shampoos, soap, etc.  It was perfect!  I know you contract the cleaning out, but whoever does it, I’m impressed!

Letter from Guest to Owner

I would like to thank you for the use of your condo this weekend. It was absolutely perfect. The company you have managing the property is doing an excellent job. When we checked in everything was spotless, and the condo itself is very comfortable and perfect for a family of four. We enjoyed the weekend and will be back. Thanks again.

The new keyless system works out very well. I do receive positive responses from my renters. The fact that they do not have to pay any attention to keys during their stay is really a big plus including skipping key pick up, and they are really fond of the support you gave them!

Dear Book by Owner,I wanted to pass along a compliment from one of my guest, he is the guy who had to endure a two day travel delay getting to CO due to another east coast snow storm. I had also received a thumbs up from one or two of my January guests who contacted you about issues. So, in this year of the Olympics you’re on track for gold!! And, we certainly appreciate your efforts and the service provided.

Joe’s Guest Comments…03.10 – Hello Joe – Just wanted you to know that Mike at BBO has been great! You probably only hear if there is a problem so a little good news I’m sure is always welcome. Tim H.

02.10 – Dear Joe, Your condo was in a good location, was well equipped and very comfortable. The main breaker to the hot tub did blow one night but the staff was most helpful in getting it repaired. We did not have power in the condo for about 3 hours because we could not find the main breaker. But when the electrician arrived, he discovered the main breaker at the meter and we had power within 5 minutes. Mike and his wife were most helpful. Hope maybe we can enjoy and share your condo again in the near future. Jim

I received an email from our guest who had to cancel their reservation at the very last minute because her husband injured his back and was unable to travel. The guest states below that you gave her a 100% refund on the lift tickets and ski rentals she reserved. Thanks for taking care of her! I’ve also received notes from guests that have rented from me this year stating how clean the condo was. Thanks for taking care of our place!

Jim’s Guest Comments…Jim, I wanted to tell you how nice the people were who take care of the condo. Before we went, they were very helpful in getting us discounted lift tickets and rentals arranged. And when we had to cancel, they refunded 100%…$600+. We feel REALLY lucky about all that! Marcia B.

You are one of the better business owners I have come across; you run your business with integrity, purpose and professionalism. We would continue to refer people and would use your service again if we start renting again.
