The Short-Term Rental Alliance of Chelan County (STRACC) is a coalition of homeowners, property managers and affiliated businesses dedicated to defending and protecting the experience for both property owners and visitors. STRACC represents, supports, and protects residential vacation rentals by setting the minimum standards of practice and ethics and by working with elected officials, government staff, and the media on issues that affect the industry.
The mission STRACC is to promote and support short-term rentals as a necessary, valuable and important part of Chelan County tourism. By encouraging cooperation between its members, our neighbors, the community and the County.
Our Approach & Vision
As a group of professional property managers of short-term rentals, we want to work with the county to ensure the county continues to enjoy a wonderful quality of life, a vibrant tourism industry, and people can use their property in a safe and responsible manner. We are recommending a self-regulatory structure where short-term rental owners or operators file a form to have a responsible person designated who can respond to issues within a specific time frame. We believe this is a reasonable approach that addresses the concerns regarding short-term rentals while also allowing owners to use their properties as courts have stated they have the right to do. As professional property managers of the short-term industry in Chelan County who manage a large segment of the short-term rentals in the county, we have set a standard for excellence in our industry. With the changes that have occurred in travel over the last decade, families want to vacation in the beautiful areas of Chelan County AND many prefer to stay in homes. As such, short-term rentals (STRs) are a vital and necessary part of the growing tourism industry in
