Biking, fishing, hiking, skiing, floating, or just relaxing: travelers know all that and more awaits them in Bend. As a Bend vacation homeowner, you've witnessed the incredible momentum of the city's tourism industry over the past few years. It's high time you started benefitting from Bend's year-round popularity as a travel destination, and renting your vacation home is a great way to get in on this hot market.
Renting in Bend can be complicated, however. Some homes are in permit-exempt neighborhoods—namely Mt. Bachelor Village, the Courtyards at Broken Top, and Deschutes Landing—but all others must apply for a Land Use Permit for their specific rental situation. Once you've been granted your permit, you have 60 days from the permitting date to complete the application for an initial operating license and pay the $275 fee. To keep your vacation rental compliant, you must submit a $200 renewal application every year and remit a transient room tax every month or quarter as proof of use.
As managing Bend vacation rentals has become more complex over the past decade, we've grown our business to serve our homeowners better. As residents of Bend and Deschutes County, our housekeeping, maintenance, and operations teams are as invested in the upkeep of your home as we are in the community. Our local employees—not contractors—care for every home like their own. We have the personal touch of a small vacation rental property management company with the resources of an international enterprise. It's how we can be there for you and your guests 24/7, all year long.
Your home needs to be both cared for and marketed well. Work with us, and your custom listing will get international exposure on top platforms like Airbnb, Google, and Expedia, in addition to professional photography, 3D tours, and vivid copywriting. We'll help you earn more too: our dynamic rate technology automatically adjusts your home's nightly price to take advantage of demand or entice visitors during slower seasons.
Renting is stress-free when you partner with an all-inclusive Bend vacation rental property manager. Contact us for a customized income projection and find out how simple owning a vacation home can be.

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 26,000 vacation properties around the world. We’d love to help you discover the Vacasa difference: earn more, worry less, and rent with ease.
