Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany and Elmon Krupnik.
Brittany and Elmon, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
We are Elmon & Brittany Krupnik and we design and renovate homes for a living. We have been flipping homes in the Valley for almost seven years and Brittany started her home staging and design business shortly after that. When we are not working though, we love to travel! It’s one of our favorite things to do together and as a family. Some of our best memories have been made while spending time together away from home. We feel like just because we are away from home doesn’t mean that we don’t want the comforts of home too. So, when we started renovating and designing vacation homes in Scottsdale, we wanted to provide our guests’ places to stay that not only give them all the comforts of home and then some, but that is just as fun and stylish as a hotel room. We want to provide spaces to spend time with those they are with and make memories to last a lifetime. We hope to play a small part in that when they decide to stay in one of our homes.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There are always challenges with renovating homes! They always take longer than you hope they will and the budget never stays intact. That part we have come to expect, but it’s never easier.
The biggest challenge we face is how to provide our guests with the best experience we can in our homes, but that starts before they even book our home. We are always finding better ways for our guests to find and book our homes, and to better communicate with them before and during their stay. But let’s be honest, it is not always smooth sailing and sometimes things go wrong. Our goal is to make it right so that the experiences with and in our homes are as enjoyable as they can be.
Please tell us about Stay Blissful Vacation Homes.
We like to say that our vacation homes are designed for you to stay in style. And I really feel that we have accomplished that! When we would look for homes to stay in for our own vacations through Airbnb or VRBO, we started to realize that there was a gap in the vacation home market. We didn’t want to spend a crazy amount of money, but we wanted houses that were well designed and felt like we were on vacation. The ones that we loved from a design and amenities perspective were really expensive and the ones that were within our price range, to be honest, wasn’t that visually appealing. What we love is that we have created homes with a cozy, boutique feels that provide everything you would want in a vacation home that doesn’t break the bank for your family vacation or girls’ weekend away.
With our extensive knowledge and experience in remodeling homes, we felt that we had a unique frame of reference for what it would take to take houses and transform them into beautiful homes for people to stay in. With Brittany’s experience in design, we knew that we could create spaces that are visually appealing, but cozy and homey at the same time.
One of the most fun parts of our homes is that we provide a way for you to take the feeling of your vacation home with you. All of our homes are shoppable on our website, so if you see an item or items that you love, you can “shop” the home and purchase those items for yourself.
Is there anyone, in particular, you would like to recognize? Mentors, etc?
We could not provide our guests with the great experiences that we do without our “host” and property manager, Stephany Rojas. She answers all of our booking requests or inquiries as soon as possible, provides recommendations to our guests when asked about local things to do or places to eat. She makes the check-in and check-out processes as smooth as possible for our guests and is available for questions or issues that come up during their stay. Stephany is onsite at the homes making sure that the home looks it’s best and she is committed to providing the best experience that she possibly can! She plays such a huge role in what we do and we could not do it without her!
