Why Vacation Rentals?

Why Vacation Rentals? We live in British Columbia and the market here is different than most parts of Canada. It is very hard to break even in a property investment when you rent long term. After a few years, after the mortgage is paid a little bit, it gets easier....

The Log House Story

I remember she took us to the beach. Kika and the Gail walked ahead of me and I stayed behind, taking in the view… My God. I can feel it now. It was the most beautiful place on Earth. I just felt it. We had found our place.

My Gardener has more properties than me

My gardener has more properties than me! Over the years, I talked to many people and one person I became friends with, was my gardener. He has a wonderful family and they all live in North Van. He told me he owned three houses, all in North Van. I was impressed. I...

How to Furnish a Vacation Home Rental

I leave the vintage stuff for tables and chairs and decor. I actually prefer vintage chairs as they seem much more durable and sturdy than the new ones. It’s EASY to find dining sets on Craigslist for not a lot of money. You can paint them if you want a brighter look.

Client Love

I can't say enough how helpful and productive it was to have Claudine come and help us with our rental suite. She took the guess work out. She took the time and evaluated the suite in details and looked at our lifestyle holistically. Then in a very kind way gave us the truth, what we needed to do, different options, and how to do it. The information we received was not candy coated but at the same time it wasn't overwhelming as she broke it down to small doable actions. We were not sure of long term rental or short term. Looking at our lifestyle, she told us the amount of work for each option and gave us her opinion of what she thought would work best for us. It was a great experience for both my husband and I and I'm glad he was home that day to listen to Claudine. What she said and did was way more clear than what I would have explained later. We had trouble renting our basement suite for about 3 months. After the conversation with Claudine, we worked on the suggestions she gave us and rented the place within 3 weeks.

What an interesting and rich journey it has been working with Claudine. Her enthusiasm for real estate was without a doubt, the major catalyst for us to invest in a property and become business partners. She happily shared with us her experience in real estate marketing, as well as a lot of valuable information she acquired over time. Without that information we would never had invested and bought our beautiful cabin. We are thankful that she is very resourceful. One year later, we can say that we had a great time together, complementing each others’ styles and interests. Her integrity and handwork are an essential part to our successful partnership.

Claudine has been our entrepreneurial diva and a source of encouragement for several years. Most recently, her enthusiasm and guidance (through her own experience of buying a rental property) helped to spark an old passion of ours... real estate investment! Almost a year after our conversation, we managed to reach something we wouldn't dare to imagine even in our wildest dreams! We bought 2 rental properties within 6 months and we are currently planning to secure the 3rd one. We know how to perform feasibility studies, risk mitigation strategies, worst case scenario assessments, breakeven studies, etc... but sooner or later "you need to jump". Claudine has been instrumental in helping us see possibilities from a different perspective. We will forever be grateful for her support, coaching, and never ending guidance.

Claudine advised us to give short term rental a try after having rented our basement suite for 20 years to long term renters. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and cannot imaging going back.
