How to earn more in Hilo, HI
From hiking Rainbow Falls to immersing yourself in Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage, there are plenty of reasons visitors love to stay in Hilo vacation rentals. As a Hilo vacation homeowner, renting your property with a full-service Hilo vacation rental management company can allow you to capitalize on your investment—without lifting a finger.
What is the cost to list your Hilo home?
Taxes on Hilo vacation rentals include a 10.25 percent state tax, and a 10.25 percent county tax. As communities develop their own standards for vacation rentals, details around regulations, taxes, and permitting may change. It's always a good idea to know your region's rules: check with your local zoning office and city hall to learn more about Hilo STR regulations. Some HOAs restrict vacation rentals, too: check your bylaws to make sure renting is a possibility in your community.
Exceptional service doesn’t clock out
Typically, Hilo property management fees cover basic services, but they might not provide the comprehensive support you need. Our all-inclusive management approach delivers homeowners peace of mind and unbeatable returns. We market your home on major listing sites like Airbnb, Google, and Booking.com, where your rates automatically adjust to demand, much like an airline. It's how we earn you more during the peak season and keep your home occupied during quieter months. Our Hilo housekeeping, maintenance, and operations teams provide personalized care to your home and 24/7 support to you and your guests. Anytime you have questions or want to arrange maintenance, give your local operations manager a call: we're on the ground and ready to help.
