Sea to Sky Rentals has announced the acquisition of Mysty Mountain Properties, an experienced vacation rental company in the North Cascades. Their inventory of vacation rental homes in Washington state now totals over 80 properties in the Seattle, Stevens Pass, and Leavenworth areas. With a variety of locations and amenities, Sea to Sky has a vacation home designed to meet every Washington traveler’s needs.
Sea to Sky Rentals and Mysty Mountain Properties, having shared an office and key employees for the past two years, find a natural partnership in their mutual emphasis on a personal, caring approach to the Washington vacation rental experience.
Sea to Sky owner Michelle Acquavella said, “Over time it became apparent that there were additional efficiencies to be gained by combining the businesses. Both businesses focused on specific areas in Washington state, and by acquiring Mysty Mountain Properties, Sea to Sky could mitigate the risks associated with operating solely in one urban area.”
Acquavella is a long-standing vacation rental trailblazer and advocate. She started her vacation rental business in 2001 when she became the second Seattle owner to list a home on the vacation rental website, VRBO.com. Since then, she has grown Sea to Sky Rentals to be an innovative powerhouse in the emerging vacation rental industry. With Michelle focused on national vacation rental leadership and policy, Business Director Heidi Stuber is now at the helm of Sea to Sky Rentals. Heidi has overseen the company’s stratospheric growth over the past three years and headed the acquisition process.
According to Stuber, “Acquiring Mysty Mountain Properties was a natural extension of our growth over the last three years. Sea to Sky Rentals is now the premier Washington state vacation rental company and we find ourselves in the unique position of being able to offer luxury vacation rentals with a view of Elliott Bay, next door to Pike Place Market, on the Skykomish River, or overlooking Mt. Baring.”
