There's a lot more to "lieb" in Helen than just the Bavarian architecture: Chattahoochee River tubing, verdant Blue Ridge Mountain hikes, and wine tasting make this fairytale destination a hotspot for vacation rentals. If you own a home in Helen, renting to visitors could be a lucrative source of income and a clever way to keep your home in excellent shape all year long.
The city of Helen considers renting your home a business enterprise, so homeowners who rent short-term must pay an occupational tax. Guests of your vacation home will pay 8 percent hotel/motel and 7 percent state sales taxes for their stay. However, visits over 10 days do not constitute a short-term rental and are therefore not required to pay the hotel/motel tax.
When you don't live in the area or have other responsibilities, managing a vacation rental on your own can be a lot to handle. We're here to help. Highly trained housekeepers, maintenance workers, and operations support staff who live and work around Helen know what it takes to make a vacation rental succeed. Our dedicated local teams are there year-round for you and your guests 24/7, should any problems arise. Trust us with your home's upkeep, and rest assured that it'll be ready for your visit, anytime.
Renting your vacation home can be an excellent investment in yourself as well as your property. We market every home we manage on internationally-recognized sites like Airbnb and TripAdvisor for nightly prices that automatically adjust to local events and seasonal demand. These factors keep your home booked longer and for better rates, earning you an improved income.
