Oregon based Meredith Lodging continues to expand its reach throughout the West Coast. 

Palm Desert, CA, October 25, 2022. Meredith Hospitality Brands has announced its acquisition of Fairway Vacation Rentals, a full-service vacation rental management company offering luxury rental properties throughout the Coachella Valley area for over 35 years. The official announcement was made Monday, October 24, 2022, at the VRMA Conference in Las Vegas, and is a part of Meredith’s aggressive and strategic growth plan gearing up for 2023.  

“Our decision to move into Southern California is just the tip of the iceberg for Meredith’s expansion plan. We are excited to bring a new level of rental property management services to new markets, and Palm Desert is just the start. We are careful to hand curate the markets and portfolios we acquire. We’ve got a beautiful template and we look forward to more rapidly replicating our secret sauce in other complimentary markets. Of course, all while maintaining an owner first mentality in the care of our homes,” said Meredith’s CEO and Founder Jon Oksenholt. 

The move to break into Coachella Valley’s market is a part of Meredith’s rapid growth and expansion plan in the coming years, focusing on niche communities with high income potential for property owners.  

With Fairway vacation rentals being Meredith Lodging’s sixth acquisition in 2022 alone, and a potential seventh on the way, Meredith continues to maintain its high standard of service by employing an extensive and experienced team to provide both vacation rental owners and the guests the best and most seamless management experience possible. With over 1,300 vacation properties under management in Oregon, Washington, and California, the company has seen significant growth in the past two years. 

“We’ve seen significant organic growth in all our local markets throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. Our focus has been and always will be staying local, and we are consistently seeing owners wanting to have both a strong and local presence while still enjoying the technology and staffing that a bigger company like us provides,” said Chief Integration Officer Aaron Linfoot when asked about the recent expansion.
