Property Owners Information

Why Choose Us?

It all boils down to one reason – We know and live by the fact that our business is made possible by having wonderful homes for travelers to enjoy. That doesn’t happen without having great relationships with our property owners.

When you think about who you’re going to hire to manage your vacation property, you want to make sure they care as much about your property as you. Okoboji Vacation Company understands that your property in Lake Okoboji is much more than just a place to offer travelers and an investment – it’s your home. 

We’ve built this business on one fact –  we care, and look after your property like it is our own. From helping with regular maintenance and property checks, to having a housekeeping team that’s dedicated to keeping your property in top shape, to finding guests that will take care of your property – we prove to you every day that we understand your vacation properties and care for them like you. That’s why we do not sublet out any of our cleaning and have a full off-site laundry facility. We think it’s important you know who is cleaning your property and the process of how your property is turned over for each stay.

We all live in the same area as the our properties. In some cases just “down the road,” and know our owners are relying on us to give them a convenient experience where they can be confident with us to manage their home. We’ve proven this confidence with our owners year after year and enjoy the friendships we’ve established with our owners. It’s not possible for a property manager to truly provide the best experience if they aren’t frequently in the property, have quick access to, and have extensive knowledge about the property.

We’d love the opportunity to show you how dedicated we are. If you’re looking for a management company for your property, we would enjoy answering any questions you have about the experience. If you’re interested in purchasing a property and want to understand how our property management service can help you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are versed in rate of return for properties all over the Lakes and look forward to turning your home into an investment.
