Local Beaver Creek Vacation Rental Management You Can Trust

About Us

Greetings, we are Kim and Steve, the owners of Grand Welcome Beaver Creek. We are fortunate to have called this mountain paradise home, full or part-time, for over 20 years. For much of that time we endured the commute from Denver including the frequent Vail Pass closures and traffic metering. With a daughter attending law school out of state and a son eager to ski race full-time, our family made the pivotal choice of relocating to Beaver Creek on a permanent basis. The move gave us the opportunity to become more immersed in the local community and the incredible junior ski racing culture.

As property owners and sporadic short-term renters of our home in Beaver Creek, we struggled to find a property manager that met our needs and expectations, but also knew the hassle of managing a rental as absentee owners. We imagined a better experience: local and hands-on, but with first-rate technology and revenue management. With this as our goal, we partnered with Grand Welcome and started Grand Welcome - Beaver Creek.

We are dedicated to not just managing rentals, but also crafting memorable moments that bring guests back year after year through unparalleled hospitality services. When you choose us, you're not just selecting a management team, you're partnering with owners who are committed to ensuring a one-of-a-kind, boutique experience.

Our Mission

We navigate the complexities of operating a short term rental property so you can enjoy the return on your investment and have peace of mind knowing your property and guests are well cared for. We believe property management deserves a personal touch, focus on even the smallest of details, and modern systems to ensure efficiency, guest satisfaction, and revenue for you, our client.

Owner & Managing Director

About ME

Hi, I’m Kim. I am from Wisconsin, born and raised (Go Pack Go). I started my career in property management over two decades ago but have spent most of my career in financial markets, the last 19 with Citibank. I started in the Affordable Housing Financing in administration and then Marketing. Along the way I raised two kids and fit in a few seasons ski instructing at Beaver Creek Ski Resort. Launching Grand Welcome Beaver Creek has brought my journey full circle back to property management.

Since becoming a full-time resident in the Vail Valley, I have enjoyed a new connection to the community through volunteering for the Beaver Creek Property Owners Association, the sports focused school, Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy’s PTO, and Ski and Snowboard Club Vail.

What I Love About Beaver Creek

Our decision to move here allowed me to develop a deeper appreciation for mountain summers. Beyond the thrill of finding untouched powder in winter, I love the summer adventures—hiking, pickleball, golf, mountain biking—and enjoying the diverse festivals offered in the valley.

Owner & Managing Director

About ME

Hello, I’m Steve! I am originally from Massachusetts and grew up ski racing in New England. I started my career as a federal bank examiner and since then I’ve worn many hats. I’ve been a successful tech entrepreneur, capital markets CIO, software CEO, and lately a student of data science. Between these titled sojourns, I have always been a consultant in some form, either independently or for well-respected companies like PwC and IBM.

For a long time, a trip out West meant “Vermont” until I finally moved to Denver. On the advice of a friend, I tried Beaver Creek my first winter and never left. With a lot of air miles and red-eye flights, I’ve managed to spend enough time in the Vail Valley to work as a Beaver Creek ski instructor for the past 20+ years.

Today, I am committed to running a successful vacation rental management business here in Beaver Creek and keeping up with my former business interests albeit in a more limited capacity through Board involvement or consulting.

What I Love About Beaver Creek

Like most people I love our dry snow, sunny days, and big fall line vertical. My favorite thing about Beaver Creek is our ability to host America’s only World Cup Downhill. I love it when I’m skiing in other countries and nearly everyone knows Beaver Creek from that race!
