The birthplace of surfing and Hawaii's largest city, Honolulu is an undeniably unique fusion of international cultures and natural Hawaiian beauty. Tourists flock to Honolulu vacation rentals to sunbathe on Waikiki, hike Diamondhead, or snorkel Hanauma Bay. That means that vacation homeowners have an excellent opportunity to capitalize on their home-away-from-home's perpetual popularity.
Renting your Honolulu vacation home can be a complicated process. The city recently instated stringent rules that limit short term rentals to resort zones and properties with non-conforming use certificates. It's useful to learn which regulations affect your property, so check with the city and your HOA to learn if renting your home is possible. If you're in a position to open your home, you'll have to collect a 4.166 percent Hawaii general excise tax, 10.25 percent Hawaii transient accommodations tax, and a 0.5454 percent Hawaii GET Honolulu County surcharge every time a guest rents your place.
Renting in Honolulu is easier when you work with local experts. Our local team can help you with everything from getting started to locked-out guests. Employees—not contractors—are on the ground 24/7 to assist guests, clean your home, and answer your questions. We work to get you better returns, too. At no extra cost, your home gets professional photography, web-optimized pages, and listings on sites like Airbnb and Booking.com. Dynamic rate-setting technology automatically adjusts your home's nightly price to micro-factors like local events and seasonal demand, earning you more in the peak and keeping your calendar busy all year long. We know that you want to use your home, and we respect that: you'll never face limits to how often you can visit.
Work with an all-inclusive Honolulu vacation property manager to get the most out of your home while you're away. We're here to make it easy to earn more and worry less.
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.
