This couple created magic—and more bookings—with the right partnership

How Vacasa’s full-service vacation rental management attracted more guests to this creative California coastal community.

Michael and Carol were excited to discover a hands-on vacation rental management company that could care for their Mendocino, California home the way it deserves to encourage growth. They also wanted to make sure their next partner shared their admiration for the area and could elevate the guest experience by offering a local’s touch.

Those needs led them to connect with Vacasa after transitioning from a different vacation rental company in 2014. Since then, their partnership with Vacasa has blossomed through local support, shared goals, communication, and a passion for getting guests to visit this incredible part of the California Coast.

Aptly named Mendocino Magic, Michael and Carol’s tranquil and sunlit vacation rental is perfect for families and friends looking for a home packed with elevated comfort, coastal convenience, and California charm.

Making Mendocino magic

The short-term rental market in Mendocino continues to grow. Michael and Carol shared that this has to do with guests flocking to this charming California coastal community to reconnect with nature, enjoy the thriving art scene, or relax in a welcoming environment.

That incredible assortment of creative and recreational activities surrounding their Mendocino vacation rental means they have a constant rotation of travelers they need help managing. In turn, they appreciate how well they can maximize their investment with Vacasa’s skill set by offering visitors magical lodging that delivers an unforgettable guest experience, high-end comfort, and local hospitality.

Keeping it local

It was paramount for Michael and Carol to work with a local team like Vacasa because they wanted a collaboration that could benefit the guest experience and the community. That's allowed them to establish a partnership that values responsible and sustainable tourism, which brings more folks to the area and more business—a win-win for everyone.

They also value that they can always count on Vacasa to enhance the overall travel experience, ensure the house is ready for guests, and add a local touch to their marketing. What's more, they also appreciate how well the local management and the cleaning teams support their home when they vacation at Mendocino Magic.
