About US

Hi, we are the Bauman family - Tim, Bethany, and our daughter Emri. We have always had a passion for exploration and adventure, thus deciding to settle down in the vacation destination closest to our roots, Lake Geneva.

Our love for experiencing new things has earned us the nickname of "living vacation to vacation". We have chosen to merge our careers with this obsession for recreation, and together, we value creating unforgettable memories, lifelong learning, and embracing new experiences.

We love helping local vacation property owners realize their goals and maximize earning potential with the latest technologies and with a personal, boutique-like experience.

What We Love About Lake Geneva

We absolutely adore Lake Geneva! This place is perfect for our little family—awesome lake life for boating and water sports, fantastic outdoor adventures all year round, and let's not forget the legendary supper clubs and Friday fish fries. Lake Geneva offers our family great times, tasty food, and precious memories. We're super grateful to raise our little girl in such a fantastic spot!
