Kailua-Kona vacation rental property management

Are you considering renting out your vacation home in Kailua-Kona, HI? Guests flock to the area to experience an island getaway, fishing tournament, or for the Ironman World Championships, among other popular events. Owning a Kailua-Kona vacation home presents you with plenty of opportunities to rent it out.

Recently, Hawaii County passed regulations on short-term rentals. Under this new law, new short-term rentals may only operate in certain resort and commercial areas. It's essential that you work with the county to determine if your home is in a neighborhood where short-term rentals are permitted. Outside of those areas, owners of existing STRs must already have a Non-conforming Use Certificate (NUC). Vacation homeowners interested in entering the Kailua-Kona short-term rental market should also consider the local fees, taxes, and regulations. All Kailua-Kona vacation rentals must collect the 9.25 percent for the state transient accommodations tax and the combined 13.42 percent General Exercise tax and Tourism Accommodations taxes.

We began with one home and one idea

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.
