With its gourmet restaurants, international film festival, and boundless opportunities for outdoor adventure, Longboat Key's cosmopolitan culture draws travelers from all over the world. Longboat Key vacation homeowners are ideally situated to benefit from the vibrancy of their home-away-from-home by renting it out when not visiting.
Using your Longboat Key home as a short-term rental can be complicated, however. The town maintains some strict zoning ordinances that prohibit rentals of less than 30 days in most sections of Longboat Key. However, some HOAs and specific properties have less restrictive rules. It's best practice to check with the town and your HOA to see which restrictions affect your ability to rent. If both the city and your HOA agree to short-term rental operations on your property, you'll have to get a permit and collect a combined 12 percent state and local tax.
Our goal is to make renting your home in Longboat Key both profitable and stress-free. We think of our homeowners as partners. That means we won't nickel-and-dime you for services that contribute to your success. Our comprehensive management includes 24/7 local care from seasoned professionals, dynamic rate-setting technology, and listings on major booking sites like Airbnb.
Let's work together to get your Longboat Key home the profits it deserves. We're here for you.
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.
