Known as an outdoor enthusiast's playground, wine lover's paradise, and sustainable farming hub, Sonoma County is an all-around great spot to own a vacation home. Sonoma County has something for families, couples, and vacationing friends alike, making renting your vacation home a lucrative and fulfilling enterprise.
Sonoma County contains many different towns, each with its own charm. Each has also set varying standards for vacation rentals in their respective communities. For instance, there are a number of exclusion zones in the county, a fire perimeter where vacation rentals cannot operate, and the Coastal Zone, where homes are exempt from a permit requirement. All that to say, it’s crucial to learn about the regulations in your home’s neighborhood and town. Check with your town and Sonoma County’s planning office to find out what you need to rent your home short term. In addition to permit requirements, vacation rental homeowners must acquire a Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) certificate and a business license to operate. When they book, guests will pay a 9 percent TOT, with the possible addition of other local taxes and fees.

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.
