When vacationers come to Key West to dive the shipwrecks, visit the Key West Butterfly Conservancy, or party at sunset in Mallory Square, they want to do it in the style of Hemingway and stay in Key West vacation homes.
As a year-round tourist destination, renting your Key West vacation home while you're not around can bring in excellent returns and keep your home ready for your next visit. But because Key West is so popular, there are a few rules to abide by before you put your home on the market. The City of Key West no longer issues transient rental licenses (less than 29 days), and the only way to acquire one is to purchase a property that received the license before 2011. The city strictly enforces vacation rental rules, and operating without a license could mean thousands of dollars in fines. If you own a licensed short-term rental or are considering purchasing one, you'll need two business tax receipts: one from Monroe County ($30) and one from the City of Key West ($20). Guests staying at your home will pay a 7.5 percent state sales tax and 5 percent tourism tax.
We're here to make operating your Key West vacation rental easy. Local employees are the core of our business, and we pride ourselves on building a responsive team that's ready for anything, 24/7. They'll handle housekeeping, maintenance, and operations support so you can feel confident that anytime you visit, your home will be ready for you.
Just as the community of Key West is important to us, so too is your home's success. We invest in you by listing your professionally-photographed home on top travel sites like Booking.com, Airbnb, and Expedia for no additional charge. Our dynamic pricing technology automatically adjusts your home's rates for demand, local events, and seasonal changes, earning you more and keeping your home occupied, longer.

Guests’ expectations are getting higher, especially when it comes to cleanliness. Our enhanced professional cleaning program, Vacasa Premium Clean, meets or exceeds CDC guidelines, so guests have extra confidence to rent your home.
Once your home is thoroughly cleaned, we treat hard and soft surfaces throughout the home with a hospital-grade, EPA-approved disinfectant, paying special attention to high-touch surfaces.
Employees are provided with personal protective equipment (gloves and face masks) to wear at all times while visiting homes for maintenance, housekeeping, or any other purpose.
Our upgraded cleaning measures and the additional time our housekeepers spend caring for your home all come at no extra cost to you or your guests.
Your listing will be prominently featured everywhere guests are searching, like Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com. And our digital marketing specialists ensure Vacasa homes are highly visible across search engines, display advertising, social media, and email marketing.
We obsess over delivering a seamless, stress-free vacation for your guests, from booking the right home to stocking the bathroom toiletries. And if your guests have questions, our Customer Experience team is available around the clock to answer all guest phone calls and emails.
We believe in earning your long-term business, not locking you into an ironclad contract. We don't limit your use of your vacation home—so you can enjoy it whenever you like, and know that it'll be sparkling clean and ready for you when you get there. Your home will always be yours.
