For many travelers, staying around Waikoloa means easy access to their tee time at the many nearby courses, experiencing Paniolo culture in Waimea, or learning the true meaning of 'ono at a nearby restaurant. As a vacation homeowner in the Waikoloa area, visiting tourists could mean impressive profits for you. Rent your Waikoloa Beach Resort, Mauna Lani, or Kohala Coast home, and see how you could be earning more and keeping your place vacation ready all year long.
Hawaii County strictly regulates vacation rentals, however. Short-term rentals outside the few zones of allowance require a Nonconforming Use Certificate, which is available only to properties with a history of short-term rentals usage. Homes in resort zones, like Waikoloa Beach Resort, may be used as vacation rentals, but you'll need to obtain a permit all the same. To register, you'll have to pay a $500 fee and submit your General Excise Tax/Transient Accommodations Tax licenses, among other requirements. Homeowners must remit the GET/TAT of 13.42 percent and the Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax of 9.25 percent, which are collected every time a guest books your home. Your HOA or condo association may have additional guidelines, so check the rules before you begin renting.
