If you own a vacation home in Austin, you know it’s hard to find a reason not to visit: between SXSW, University of Texas football, and outdoor activities like Barton Springs, there’s always something to do. To get the full, local experience, tourists who flock to the #1 destination in the Southwest look to rent Austin vacation homes like yours.
You want to capitalize on Austin’s popularity, but there are a few issues that might prevent you from renting within Austin proper. Vacation rentals in Austin are highly regulated. However, the homestead exemption provides a route for homeowners to capitalize on their properties while they’re away. Check with the Austin Code Department to determine what kind of permit your home is eligible for. It’s always a good idea to pay attention to changing regulations in your city, as communities are still developing standards for STRs. To rent an Austin vacation home, your guests will pay a 9 percent Austin hotel occupancy tax and a 6 percent Texas hotel tax.

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.
