We are your neighbors.

Founded in 2020, Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals is a full-service property management company specializing in short-term vacation rentals for the rural communities in and along the Mogollon Rim in northeast Arizona. Rim Lakes offers homeowners and guests over ten years of combined experience, focusing on providing exceptional homes and services to guests and producing reservations, managing housekeeping, linen, maintenance, and other property management services for homeowners. Local to the communities we serve, Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals continues to refine the business to meet the changing needs of homeowners, guests, and the growing Rim Lakes team. 

Meet our Leadership Team

Kaydee and Jared Porter, part-owners of Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals and local to Heber-Overgaard, Arizona, are responsible for the daily operations including property owner and guest relations as well as housekeeping and maintenance coordination.

Kaydee first entered the vacation rental industry as a house cleaner and earned her Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professional (VHRP) certification from VRMA in 2022.  After working for other corporate-structured property management companies, she saw a real need for a more personalized touch to property management in the White Mountains region. Kaydee is well known for her strong work ethic, dedication to success, and for balancing many roles. She brings to Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals a wealth of knowledge about the local market and specializes in delivering 5-star customer service, high cleaning standards and a passion for interior design.

Jared was born in Show Low, Arizona and is a true Heber native. His love for the White Mountains is in his genes that goes back four generations. In college, Jared worked for Marriott Hotels in several different roles and gained an appreciation for the hospitality business. Although he has a Bachelor's degree in the scientific field, his passion is working with people and building meaningful connections. Jared brings to the leadership team a background in hospitality, a passion for understanding and bringing people together, as well as knowledge in general maintenance and technology. His goal is to be an advocate for owners and guests to ensure all parties are heard and their needs met. 


Stephanie and Jim Weigold 
live in Forest Lakes, Arizona and the original founders of Rim Lakes Vacation Rentals having joined forces with the Porters, owner/operators of J&K Property Management LLC, in Spring 2022.

Jim and Stephanie discovered the vacation rental business after personally renting out their family cabin and the learning curve that comes with it.  They quickly realized the vacation rental homeowners in the area needed a professional property manager that they could trust and count on to take care of their homes the same way they would. While the Weigold family have been long-time summer residents of Forest Lakes, Jim and Stephanie took the plunge in 2016 and moved to the community full-time. 

With more than 30 years’ of experience in real estate and project management to offer, Stephanie focuses her considerable skills on both back-end organizational needs and the front-end customer experience. Stephanie is responsible for the financial and strategic oversight for the company and her goal is to offer a positive 5-star experience for owners and guests alike.  Jim’s strengths have always been his high-quality craftsmanship, mechanical aptitude and a natural problem-solver. He acts as our maintenance engineer and liaison for specialty contractor services, to ensure that our guests receive responsive customer care. Jim is also a NHWA Certified Home Watch Professional and part-time EMT with the Forest Lakes Fire Department.
