As the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is the premier destination for pure Colorado wilderness. When visitors come to raft on the Colorado River, hike Balanced Rock, or snowshoe in the winter, they want to stay in the comfort of an Estes Park vacation rental.
Renting your Estes Park vacation home could generate meaningful income, but there are a few things you should know first. To get a permit, you must have a local property manager if you live more than 30 minutes away. Permits for Estes Park short-term rentals are also tricky to get. A limited number of vacation rentals are allowed in the city, and currently, the waiting list for a permit in a residential area is 12-18 months. There is no limit to the number of short term rentals in commercial zones, however. Permits cost $200 plus $50 per bedroom for each calendar year. Additionally, your guests pay a 3.7 percent Colorado and Larimer County sales tax and 2 percent Estes Park local marketing district tax when they rent your home.
Working with a full-service Estes Park vacation rental management company remains the most reliable way to rent your vacation home. We're here to make it simple, lucrative, and as stress-free as possible. When you work with us, you get both a seasoned local team and the resources to market your home on an international scale. Your home will be kept in exceptional condition year-round by our local housekeepers, maintenance staff, and operations team. Anytime you or your guests need assistance or have questions, we're just a phone call away, 24/7.
We want to help you make the most of your investment, so we don't charge you for things like toiletries, hot tub maintenance, or checking on the condition of your home after a storm. We'll also professionally photograph your home and list it on major international booking sites like Airbnb, Booking.com, and Expedia at no additional cost. We know your Estes Park home is meaningful to you, so we utilize a guest screening process that reduces the chance of damage to your property. We'll also never limit the number of days you can visit, so your home remains in your control.
