We are committed to Owner Relations – We are dedicated to serving as your personal connection to Durango Colorado Vacations. This team steps in to completely set up our homes for short-term rental upon closing or entering the vacation rental market. Additionally, we routinely inspect properties in order to communicate with owners any necessary upgrades or replacement equipment needed.

“We love working with Lorie & Jen. We bought our townhome in Oct 2017 as our vacation home but also wanted to rent it out from time to time. We live in Atlanta which of course means we can’t hop in a car and drive a few hours to get to our place to resolve a problem, so we really needed someone who could go that extra mile to accommodate a long distance relationship. They do a great job at finding renters who respect and appreciate our property which is very, very important to us. We interviewed 4 different property managers in the area and Durango Colorado Vacations is the only one that made the cut.”

– Lori & Bob O’Hara

“If you’re looking for a smart, friendly and vacation-savvy Property Manager, we heartily recommend Lorie Naylor. She has been working with us for years, and is a solid professional. Her skill set for management is enormous, and is always looking for ways to improve the customer experience. She’s the reason we sleep well at night knowing that our precious family vacation home is in great hands, even 1500 miles away.”

– Joy Schwartz

“A sincere thanks to Durango Colorado Vacations for all your professionalism. You’ve done an exceptional job of keeping the house rented and making the renters feel right at home. I love that you send out a detailed packet of information they receive concerning not only the house but available restaurants, things to do and numbers to call. You have made this process trouble free for all.

In the 10 years that we have worked together, I know that my 2nd home is in good hands and I can always count on Lorie and Jen to respond quickly, take excellent care of my home, my questions, and communicate with the guests/renters professionally and promptly.”

– Brewster Jennings

“Lorie Naylor and her team have managed my guesthouse property for over three years now and I cannot shout enough praises about dealing with them. They are zealous about the Durango area and are a real pleasure to deal with on a day to day basis. I am confident that anyone contacting them will receive nothing but professional and knowledgeable discourse on questions regarding their managed properties, and I trust that you will be left with nothing less than positive experience.

Happy sailing!”

– Bill Fleisch

“I live in New Mexico and 2 years ago I bought a cabin in the mountains above Lemon Reservoir in Durango. Our family enjoys the cabin as a retreat. I thought about renting when we weren’t using it, but was reluctant—I didn’t know a thing about renting: how do I juggle rental dates with family use? How could my little rustic cabin bring in much revenue? Living 4 hours away, how could I possibly deal with removing our personal belongings, cleaning and changing bed linen each time the cabin was rented? And what if the renters trashed the place?

When a friend suggested that I contact Durango Colorado Vacations and speak with Jen and Lorie, everything I was worried about changed. First, they requested a list of “blackout dates” so I was able to reserve time for my family use of the cabin. They arranged all the bookings, vetted the renters, and clean after each rental. They even send me the renters’ reviews afterward. I receive an Owner Statement each month with information about dates and rental fees—saving me the task of keeping my own tax records. Most important, they make me feel like my cabin is special and important to them. I recommend Durango Colorado Vacations without reservation to anyone interested in renting their home.”
