Staying in a privately owned home instead of a hotel is becoming more popular among travelers. The vacation home rental business is no longer a cottage industry. It seems everyone from retired grandmothers and profit-driven investors to professional management companies and major hotel chains are getting in on the act. Condé Nast Traveler begged the question – how do travelers know which vacation rental managers to trust?
In a February 24, 2015 article, Condé Nast’s Chadner Navarro takes a look at vacation rental managers worldwide, creating a list of the standout companies you should consider for your next trip. Navarro ranked Acme House Co. of Palm Springs among the top 10 trusted vacation rental managers who help guests live like a local.
Navarro praised Acme and its Property Care Team for how they efficiently address maintenance issues among their 70 vacation home rentals in southern California’s stylish desert hideaway. Acme House Co. has two property care trucks that make the rounds. Between these two perfect-for-emergencies vehicles are about 10,000 repair parts and housekeeping items to ensure that guests never have to wait very long should something go wrong when staying in one of Acme’s groovy pads. As an extra precaution, the company keeps extra refrigerators, stoves and dozens of small appliances stocked in their warehouse – just in case.
Here is a list of the trusted vacation rental managers named in the Condé Nast Traveler article:
- San Telmo Lofts, Buenos Aires
- One Fine Stay, London
- Feels Like Home, Paris
- Acme House Co., Palm Springs
- Oasis Collections, Rio de Janeiro
- Urbanauts, Vienna
- Istanbul! Place Apartments, Istanbul

Boris Stark, head of Property Care & Housekeeping for Acme House Co. explained that the company’s mission is to earn 5-Star reviews from every guest. “We understand that we are responsible for making our guests’ vacation perfect. We take that very seriously,” said Stark. “We have a full time staff of seven property care professionals who inspect the homes before and after the arrivals plus three cleaning crews. We offer a 24-hour round the clock hotline. So if a guest needs anything from extra towels to assistance with WiFi – we are on it. On the rare occasion that the toaster or climate control at a property should fail, we’re prepared to respond immediately. This is one of the reasons we have so many repeat guests. Our loyal guests know that we offer VIP service across the board. There is a peace of mind that comes with that.”
