One of the country’s leading vacation rental management companies, Portland, Oregon-based Vacasa, has announced the acquisition of Shaver Lake Vacation Rentals, a well-known vacation company in Fresno County.
Shaver Lake Vacation Rentals has been providing its service to Shaver Lake homeowners and vacationers for more than 20 years. Through the acquisition, Vacasa has acquired all 84 rentals from Shaver Lake Rentals and will take over all aspects of property management from marketing and reservations to guest services, housekeeping and maintenance.
“I’m very thrilled to be joining forces with one of the most dynamic vacation rental companies in the industry,” said Dana Smith, previous owner of Shaver Lake Vacation Rentals. “With Vacasa’s expertise in property management, care for their employees, and industry-leading technology offerings, I know my company, employees and homeowners will be left in good hands.”
Founded in 2009, Vacasa is a full-service vacation rental management company that currently manages more than 7,000 homes in 18 states and 15 countries.
“Dana and his wife, Jayne, have built a very successful vacation rental company with beautiful homes, great customer service and a strong team of employees,” said Kristen Taylor, senior general manager of Coast and Southern California at Vacasa. “We’re looking forward to being part of the Shaver Lake Vacation Rentals family and the greater Shaver Lake community.”
Vacasa has retained all Shaver Lake Vacation Rentals employees and plans to hire additional housekeeping staff to join the local team in Shaver Lake.
