Increased Revenues

We market your vacation rental on over 20 sites internationally! Our goal is to maximize home owner rental income to increase the return on your investment. Short term vacation rentals have the potential to generate approximately 2-3X the net income over long term rentals, depending on the home. We allow you to keep or purchase your second home without the hassle and intricacies necessary to effectively manage it as a vacation rental. Using a unique rental pricing schedule, we are able to adjust rental rates and maximize rental income based on historical data and market fluctuations revolving around seasonality, holidays and day of week. Our management commission is competitive, and our “Set-Up” process is unmatched, allowing for higher owner revenue than other management companies in our area.

Flexible Management Strategy

Tahoe Alpenglow Properties is entirely focused on ensuring that you are completely satisfied with our performance and services as your locally owned and operated full service property management company. We appreciate the differences in each owner and each home, and tailor fit each rental home and strategy to best achieve your revenue and property management expectations. Open communication is our strong point, and our goals are to reduce owner stress and make second home ownership as streamlined as possible. Let us care for your home as much as you do! TAP, “Your Door To Everything Tahoe”.

Advertising & Reputation Management

We advertise your home on our website free, as well as on many other 3rd party portals to insure your property is visible to the 40+ million travelers via 20+ variable sites internationally. We operate using a sophisticated property management software, use targeted social media strategies, and implement email marketing to encourage repeat stays. After we “Set-Up” your rental home we work with professional housekeepers and photographers, then dive deep into the details of your home within our listings, allowing us to capture quality reservations at great prices. We reply to booking inquiries, emails, and guest calls immediately, so that we continue to capture positive reviews from our guests after departure. Studies show that travelers are 80% more likely to rent a home with positive reviews.


While we assign 1 team to your home, we work with multiple companies who have years of professional cleaning experience, enabling TAP to ensure the most prestigious clean from top to bottom. The job is always done on time, and to our higher standard, so that we may meet & often exceed Guest & Owner expectations. We work with their staff to train the housekeepers on the unique nuances of your home and our TAP specific requirements, communicate with them practically daily, and even perform an arrival inspection to insure everything is in place prior to guest arrival. These practices significantly reduce guest complaints.

Precision of Choice

In order to maintain the high standard of home, guest, and customer service, we choose our homes wisely and screen our guests accordingly. We select cordial owners who are willing to share in our vision of their home and our rental operations and strategy in order to maximize your homes potential and return for both our benefits. We strive to offer a cleaner and more accommodating home, and rent it competitively. We conduct every day business with a cost/benefit approach in mind. Every aspect of our business is handled within our office, without use of answering services or third party booking agents. We communicate directly with all Guests to build the foundation of our local presence, confirm their purpose of stay, number of occupants, pet policy, and other details specific to their stay and your rental home.

“An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure”-Benjamin Franklin

While this begins with our extensive rental “Set-Up”, we also dive deeper into your home for an average of 5 hours 2X/yr during our “Shoulder Season Tasks”. Plus, our free and routine inspections as well as our open communications with our Guests, Housekeepers, and Owners allows Tahoe Alpenglow Properties to be proactive as opposed to reactive on a daily basis. TAP is a locally owned and operated corporation, and we work hard to minimize repair and late hour service calls. With our 24/7 guest emergency line, we are able to promptly respond to both minor and major emergencies which ensures both the upkeep of your home as well as guest satisfaction. This facilitates positive guest reviews, and allows TAP to maintain a steady flow of future business. Tahoe Alpenglow Properties carries General Liability & Professional Liability Insurances, and each guest stay is inclusive of a Damage Waiver with a policy limit of up to $2,000/stay. This means that guests are no longer afraid to report damages, and any damage reported or not reported will be repaired and/or replaced promptly, and often free of owner charge.

STR Rules (Town of Truckee, Nevada & Placer County, & Tahoe Donner: Covenants, Rules + Enforcement)

We feel strongly that it is as much our duty to care for our community, your neighbors, and our mutual Guests, as it is our fiduciary duty to care for and rent your property. We are committed to communicating all STR Rules to our Guests in advance, and we are close by here locally, allowing us to follow up in a timely manner and resolve any unforeseen issues in hopes to continue being perceived as part of the solution. Prior to Guest Arrival, the STR Rules, Fines, and Consequences for breaking them are made very clear. STR Rules are on our homes listings, listed in the Guests Docu-Sign Guest Agreement, within an Email that goes out 5 Days Prior To Arrival, within your homes Check-In/Out Instructions, posted in the home, as well as within the Guest Welcome Binder. We are here to assist the longevity of the vacation rental industry, and both our operations & responsiveness plays a strong roll in displaying our positive influence, making Truckee/Tahoe a better place for everyone to enjoy.
