The Best Ways to Make Your Big Bear Vacation Rental Stand Out!

Beautiful Big Bear home for sale on Angels Camp

The Best Ways to Make Your Big Bear Vacation Rental Stand Out!

Big Bear Lake is the perfect destination to own a rental home! Vacationers come out from all over the world to visit Big Bear in the San Bernardino Mountains. It is the perfect spot for families to travel to and create life lasting memories; kayaking with their children, snowboarding down Bear Mountain, and bonding by being together through every adventure that awaits them in Big Bear. Yet, it is also perfect for groups of friends to visit because of the Big Bear Lake Village. The Village is a beautiful and spacious outdoor shopping center with restaurants and entertainment. Firepits line the sidewalks, ready to keep guests warm in the chilly mountain air.

When a tourist thinks of Big Bear, their thoughts turn to snowy weather and snowboarding. Winter is one of the most popular times of the year, but that does not mean that the warmer months have nothing to offer! During the summer, vacationers are able to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, boating, water-skis, jet-skis, wakeboarding, kayaking and so much more. The July Fourth holiday crowds can even rival those of the Christmas holiday in Big Bear Lake. Every season brings a new reason to visit the town of Big Bear.

If you have a property that you want to rent out in Big Bear, it’s time to ask yourself one question! With the vacation rental market so vast, how do I make my home stand out from the rest?

Go above and beyond in Big Bear!

Hot chocolate welcome gift for Big Bear vacationers Your Big Bear vacation rental home needs to captivate and awe potential guests. As an owner, your vacation rental home in Big Bear will not do that if you are not willing to go above and beyond for your guests. The special little touches will set your Big Bear home apart from the rest. Vacationers will remember your house by the extras. For example, leaving a bottle of wine for every stay or a handwritten letter that personally thanks your guests for staying at your Big Bear home. Of course, this depends on your availability and time. Depending if you are with a vacation rental management company and which company manages your Big Bear home, they may work with you to place out those welcome gifts before each guest.

If you want to cater towards the winter crowds, create a warm and cozy feeling that focuses on that niche, without going overboard. The best way to go about this is to concentrate on the niche but not to the point that you completely alienated all other clientele. For the winter route, you could place a welcoming package in eye-sight as they first walk in your Big Bear vacation rental home with a note, inviting your guest to feel at home, and the added bonus of hot chocolate mix with mini marshmallows. You could also provide a bundle of wood (if your Big Bear vacation rental home has a fireplace) or have it in place of the welcoming gift.

To get reviews that speak highly of your home in Big Bear, place yourself in their shoes. What would you enjoy seeing as you walked into a Big Bear vacation home? Would a note, wood, hot chocolate, or mints bring a smile to your face that would leave a lasting impression? Help to create life long memories for your guests, and you will start to become one of the busiest Big Bear vacation homes on the mountain!

• Hire a Big Bear vacation management company.
We highly suggest hiring a Big Bear vacation rental company! If you decide not to, you will have to work a lot harder to match their level of service. An employee of the vacation rental company and a maintenance man is on call 24/7 to help check in a guest who is late, answer any questions, and to fix any problems that may arise. Are you willing to do that? If you are, that is great! You will fit right in as a vacation rental home owner, but we still suggest hiring a property management company who can handle any issues and keep a tight schedule on cleaning before and after each guest.

If you do not live in Big Bear Lake, then going through a management company or hiring others to work for you is your best bet. What happens if you find out you double booked or accidentally asked the cleaning service to come a day late? You will not be able to make it up to your Big Bear vacation rental home to help out your guests. You may be thinking that you could call another company or service to take care of any mistakes; this depends on how busy it is in the mountains. Plumbers, contractors, cleaning services, and so forth could be completely booked up. It has happened before! Especially during the Christmas season. As an independent person managing your property, make sure to hire a property manager to take care of your Big Bear home.

Big Bear vacation management companies understand how to handle situations in the correct legal manner. If a Big Bear vacationer complains and demands their money back, what is the proper action? That depends on the situation! If you are not able to keep a close eye on your Big Bear home, you could end up refunding a renter without having to. Another scenario is if a tenant accidentally breaks or takes something from your rental property. Typically, the vacation management company would have taken a deposit and screened the guest before they entered your Big Bear home. They would either be able to stop the guest from renting your house or keep the deposit to pay towards the damaged or stolen property.

Hiring a Big Bear vacation management company takes a lot of the stress and worry off your shoulders! You can sit back, relax, and cash those checks without the hassle.

• Focus on the best features of your Big Bear home.Lakefront home in Big Bear for sale
Does your Big Bear vacation rental home have a deck with a breathtaking view of the lake? Show it off! The photos that are listed on your rental property profile can make or break it for vacationers when they are searching for a home to rent in Big Bear.
Before you have the photos taken, stage the area that is the best spot in the house! If you have a beautiful and spacious deck, place patio furniture and potted plants to entice possible renters. The better it looks, the more people you will attract to rent your Big Bear vacation home.

Make sure you keep what you have in the photos on the property! You do not want vacationers to think the photos fooled them. It is best to stage your home for the pictures and their stay.

• Be helpful to your Big Bear guest.
Being helpful can go a long way! Place a map, booklet, or guide of the surrounding area of Big Bear. It does not have to be a novel’s length help guide because small details can be found out online or through GPS. What can’t be found through the internet, is a personal touch from you! Write a couple of suggestions for your Big Bear guests. You could even place a magnet on the refrigerator with a notepad that lists your favorite restaurants in Big Bear Lake. Make your Big Bear guests feel that you care about their stay.

• Do not let your Big Bear guests go home unhappy.
The reviews on your vacation rental home in Big Bear will be the standard that possible renters rate your home. For example, let’s say a customer said your home did not measure up to the photographs, every reader will lose faith in the authenticity of the photos and possibly pass when it comes to your Big Bear home. Of course, there are times where certain renters will not be happy. You could give them the world and a refund, but they could still be unhappy. It is not often, but you do have to be ready for those customers. This is where your handy vacation rental property comes into play! They are able to sort out the issues that would otherwise be a stress factor for you. As long as you treat your guests well and the Big Bear vacation rental property is up to par, you will have happy guests! If you are personally renting out your home, remember it is all about customer service. Smile and help vacationers to feel welcomed. After a good experience, many will come back to stay at the same Big Bear rental property or recommend it to their friends!

The goal of renting out a Big Bear vacation home is to meet your standards and then go beyond. Would you be happy if you rented out your house? If you would not be, it is time to rethink the way you are going about the rental business! Vacationers come to Big Bear Lake to enjoy the fresh air, lake activities, and seclusion that comes along with staying in the mountains. Make them connect your home with a positive memory or feeling to give them more of a reason to love your vacation rental home in Big Bear.

I was tasked with finding a realtor in Big Bear Lake 2 days before Thanksgiving. We were located 500 miles north of Big Bear in the SF Bay Area. After reading the positive reviews about Rahill Realty, I took a chance and gave them a call. We were lucky to have Brad King answer the phone (even though a lot of people were not working that week – Brad was!) I explained we were planning to purchase a company cabin in the Big Bear …Lori Brown

Lisa & Rahill exceeded our expectations.  I feel Lisa is just as interested in making friendships as she is in selling real estate. She showed us 19 properties in one afternoon.

This was our first home purchase since we retired 2 years ago. During my 35 year career, we were moved 7 times domestically and 6 times internationally. The property purchase in your area was, by far, the easiest one we have experienced. We were guided through the process by our agent, Lisa Seifert. Lisa was patient with our ever changing goals, as we viewed dozens of properties and learned more about the area. She provided concise guidance, communicated with us on a daily basis, …Mike & Roseanne Mollere

How lucky we were to have been introduced to Brad King at Keller Williams.  It was our daughter and son-in-law that was originally looking for some property.  The more we looked at properties with Brad, the more we grew to like him and trust him. As it ended up, we were shown 10-12 properties for us, but in the end we decided to purchase a lot and build what we were looking for.  Our daughter and son-in-law are still working with Brad to find …Norbert & Judy Goulart
Tarl Wood was a true professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. We are out of state buyers and he made us feel as though we were next door during the entire transaction. His follow up was great and he over delivered on everything we needed. Thank you Tarl for a great buying experience as it rare to experience such a seamless transaction, you are an asset to your team and I look forward to seeing you when we are up there!   …Robert Dubel
Will consummately blends his extensive market knowledge and attention to detail with keeping things simple and in a lay-person’s terms. His skill, confidence and familiarity with all aspects of the process ensured that my home purchase as convenient and effortless as possible. I will no doubt use his expertise again and I unequivocally recommend others do the same.Tom Peirce
Lisa was wonderful to work with. We had dealt with several realtors on the mountain and had noticed a lack of professionalism until Lisa.   She made us feel as though we were really important.  Not just another buyer, she cared about making sure we were happy and well taken care of the entire process.  Jeff & Noel Donahue
Very attentive, Will will help you find what you’re looking for.Karen Scholl
My husband and I couldn’t be happier about the service we received from Will Rahill and his team.  His knowledge of the market and unique strategies for listing our higher-end home were unimpeachable. The process was efficient and resolved much more quickly than we’d ever imagined possible. He was also extremely responsive, encouraging, and persistent in getting us through it all without undo stress. We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or recommend him to friends. Thanks for the opportunity to let us share …Lorraine Wolfe, Ph.D.
Will, You were great during the whole process of selling our cabin in Big Bear. Very professional, honest, firm and trustworthy. You did whatever you promised you would and did it in the best way. Thank you!Hashemi's
As both a homeowner and a real estate investor in California and out of the U.S.A. over the past forty years,  I’ve worked with many realtors.  I truly think you are one of the best. You helped our family sell our wonderful but quite dated Big Bear vacation rental home by tactfully suggesting reasonable improvement ideas and recommending trustworthy contractors, and by realistically pricing it and steadfastly showing it during a very bad sellers’ market.  Furthermore, you exuded confidence that you would sell it, and …Shirley Kedes
Rick was great from the start. He was not pushy and answered all our questions. If there was something he didn’t know he would be honest about it and got back to us with an answer. He was very easy going and always on time. Since we live in Anaheim, he made all arrangements to accommodate us. He also referred us to a great lender and kept us in the loop at all times. This was the best home buying experience we’ve ever had. …Hyong & Hilda Perkins
Will was always prompt, knowledgeable, courteous, & helpful throughout the entire home-buying process.Bill LaGrosso

What a grand experience I had working with Rick & Nicki. You have a very professional, efficient crew at your office. I felt as if I was kept informed on my listing, progress of sale, and the negotiation process. Rick guided me through it all with clarity and patience. I appreciated the constant communication that I had from/with Rick & Nicki, along with the MLS emails. I look forward to spreading the word about the exceptional service that I received from the Rahill Real …Karin Powell

Will was very good to work with.  He was knowledgeable, about the market, candid about the process, reliable in his communication.  I recommend him.Rob Drew
Lisa, my son Joe was spot on when he recommended the Rahill Real Estate Group. It was comforting to have a person who could understand the emotional problems in having to give up my dads cabin. Thank you for being so sweet.Lois Lillibridge
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Rahill Team, especially Rick & Lisa Seifert. At first the sale of our cabin seemed like a daunting task. Rick & his wife dug in and helped us prioritize what needed to be done.  They were constructive….never pushy. We were amazed at the difference de-cluttering made.  Rick patiently helped us through each step of the process.  The last time we entered an escrow was in 1992. The computer made it easier in so many ways …Dan & Delayne Stotts
Lisa is a great agent who worked very hard to keep us informed of every step of the house sale. Her knowledge of the industry and her honesty are well appreciated by us all in a very stressful time. She made it a lot easier. She always kept us informed almost on a daily basis.  David & Judy Behrens
Will helped us find the perfect home in Big Bear. During our hunt he showed us many homes, fine-tuned the search as we gave him feedback, and did not high pressure us for a sale. Will is very knowledgeable about the properties in Big Bear and readily available to answer questions. We appreciated his honesty and patience. Thank you, WillOlivia Kennedy
Will was a real treat to work with…professional, experienced and he sold our home the first weekend it was on the market. We had a difficult buyer and if it wasn’t for Will “talking me off the ledge” a number of times, I’m sure I would have blown the sale. He’s calm and cool under pressure and made selling our home easy. Thanks Will.Christie Walker
Best experience I’ve ever had! From day 1 through escrow closing & beyond, Rick of Rahill Real Estate was there for “me”……….Sheila Pitts
We had a very nice experience dealing with Rahill Real Estate. In particular, our agent, Lisa Seifert!! She was patient, informative, and made herself very available to any and all questions and requests we had for her. Her knowledge of the area and understanding of what we were looking for in a family cabin helped the process be as efficient and easy as possible. We feel very fortunate she answered the phone when I called inquiring about the property that caught our eye.  Thank …Ron & Carol DePompa

I have known Will for over 20 years. You will not find a real estate professional with more integrity, honesty and knowledge of the Big Bear area than Will. He is the first person I call when I need investment advice and/or have questions about real estate.Paul Skip Sjoberg
I would like to say how great my agent Lisa Seifert at the Rahill Real Estate was in helping me find my new home in Big Bear Lake. She has to be the best agent that I have ever had in all the years that I been buying homes. She took the time to show me all the homes that were in the Big Bear Lake area and never gave up the hunt to find me my home.  She is a supper person and …Jim Bullard
Lisa Seifert was such a blast to work with. She patiently showed us cabin after cabin until we found our dream getaway. All along the way we learned so much about Big Bear & all the special places to go & have fun with our family & friends. She helped us through each step & was always there to answer any questions quickly. We feel blessed to have our family getaway so enjoyed what would have otherwise been a stressful process, thanks to Lisa …Sean & Elizabeth Stephens
Lisa & Rick were absolutely fabulous!! We were referred to them by a friend from down the hill, called and scheduled to meet, and the same day found a house we loved. The best part is that we came up with a long list of homes we wanted to see, but Rick & Lisa also brought us to a few houses not on our list and came up with a home that we instantly fell in love with. Lisa was available at all hours, …Todd & Yorley Blacher

Lisa, you have been such a breath of fresh air in this process. When we began working with you, you really helped put our minds at ease. Thank you for your guidance and support it has made all the difference.Javier & Cassandra
Brad was an incredible resource for us. We had originally been referred to a different realtor who was slow and very disinterested, so we put our a request for a local realtor and Brad immediately responded to us and gave us the local lay down and was very willing and enthusiastic to answer questions, promptly. Also, Brad was extremely willing to help us with vendors and other procedures outside of the closing process. We couldn’t have been happier to have such a knowledgeable, professional, …Josh Golden
Having worked side by side with Will when I lived in Big Bear, he’s my go-to agent for every referral I have. I trust sending my LA based clients to him, because I know they’ll get the same great service from Will that they do when they work with my own team locally.Deanna Wallo-Whipp
I have known Will for over 15 years. We met while working for an organization that teaches people with disabilities to ski. I agree with the previous testimonials that are singing his praises, and I would add loyal and conscientious. He truly cares about treating people right and standing by friends.Jason Schetter

He had so much knowledge of the area. Brian was very good at returning all of my emails and texts. He was so friendly and made me a priority when I was available to look at cabins. I would recommend Brian to any one. Thank you, Brian! Aubrey KingAubrey King
I live in San Diego and wanted to find a local realtor in the Big Bear area who could help us find a property that would be great for personal use – but most importantly for vacation rental purposes. I actually came to Yelp and contacted Rahill through Yelp messages and Brad King reached out to me in minutes. Brad was great from the beginning – he had great knowledge of the area and most importantly knew what we needed to find to make …Alyssa R.
Will is a very helpful and knowledgeable realtor!Jessica Stack Yeoman
Relying on an agent to represent you in a real estate transaction is all about trust. The profession sometimes draws “salespeople” that are more interested in their wallets than your needs. There isn’t anyone I would trust more than Will to be my advocate buying real estate, both from a technical perspective in understanding the angles of the “deal” and more importantly, knowing that integrity and helping people are more important to Will than what’s in his wallet.Wade Griffis
I’ve known Will for 25 years, and there is nobody I would trust or recommend more highly.Mark Spurlock
Tarl Wood was awesome and I had a great experience with The Rahill Real Estate Group and the progress. Thank you!Rick Pathi
Lisa is the most amazing person I ever met. It is a good thing we have no plans to move again, because I can’t imagine going through another transaction without her. Every person I spoke with while going through the rigors of selling a home have only had the highest praise for her. She was on time for every meeting, she was available every time I needed her, she worked well with all the people involved in this sale including the contractor, buyers, other …Donna Cooper

We received weekly updates on our listing and really appreciated the assistance we got from the Rahill Team. We highly recommend …Ed Lineberry
Rick was great! House was priced right, sold quickly, smooth transaction and short escrow. Thanks you!Sudie Smartt
When my wife & I started getting interested in purchasing a vacation home in Big Bear, we really didn’t know for sure what we wanted & weren’t entirely sure with the area, so I started searching the web to find a real estate agent to help answer our questions. The first real estate agency I emailed replied a couple days later and then I didn’t hear back from them for over a week. Therefore, I decided to try a different agency. However, I never …Brad Gilpin
Will Rahill’s team have proven to be professional & efficient. I am thankful to Will for his accurate suggestions to upgrade the property and to Rick Seifert for his caring & availability. The combination made the sale immediate & smooth. Excellent team! Highly recommendable!!!!Fariba Rofougaran
Thank you for all of your hard work in making this happen! My house was the last of about 5 properties to go on the market on our street and I think the first to sell.   Donna Gurule
Over the years I have purchased & sold many properties including commercial & rentals. During this time I have been involved with numerous realtors and Tarl is one of the best. After I purchased this home, Tarl did not disappear (as most agents do) but continued to be very responsive to my needs & is still helping me get settled. I have no doubt Tarl will be even more successful going forward as I will go out of my way to recommend him to …Pete Buenzli
I’ve recently utilized Lisa Seifert’s talents to close on two properties within the past year. She is the most competent and reliable real estate professional that I’ve come across. Going forward, regardless of who is listing the property, I will always call Lisa first. I hope you realize what a gem you have within your company. Cherish her because good people are hard to find these days.James Black

Will is the type of real estate consultant that everyone needs: honest, extremely bright, thorough and just a fantastic person.
