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.

Owning a second home shouldn’t be your second job. Vacasa takes care of the details so you can enjoy your home.
In 2009, after assuming responsibility for his wife's family vacation home, our founder Eric Breon struggled to find a property manager capable of providing quality care and a satisfying financial return. This is how Vacasa began—with a vision to deliver a seamless experience for vacation home owners, through innovative technology and local staff, wherever guests want to travel.
In the last decade, thousands of homeowners have joined the Vacasa family, and we now manage more than 25,000 vacation properties around the world. We’d love to help you discover the Vacasa difference: earn more, worry less, and rent with ease.
