Whether you're escaping to the beach for the weekend, enjoying nature at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center, or taking the kids to Waves Resort, your Port Aransas vacation home is where your getaway begins. As a classic Texas beach destination, demand for vacation rentals in Port Aransas has remained as high as ever. If you've been thinking of putting your home on the market, there are a few fees to consider first.
Taxes on Port Aransas vacation rentals consist of a 6 percent Texas and 7 percent Port Aransas Hotel Occupancy Tax. You'll also pay a $50 fee for a two-year short-term rental registration. As a part of this, the city requires you to list a contact who can respond to complaints within one hour, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You’ll also need to check your home’s zoning, as some zones restrict short-term rentals.
Unless you live on the island and never take a vacation, staying on call is a tall order. Work with a full-service Port Aransas vacation rental property manager who has a helping hand available 24/7 for neighbor complaints, guest-related emergencies, and whatever else running a vacation rental may throw at you. Our housekeepers, operations staff, and maintenance crew all live in the area and know the town well. You can depend on your local team to provide the best care Port A has to offer.
Our owners are our partners, so we don't charge you extra for anytime customer care, regular housekeeping, or even toiletries. We invest in your success, so we'll also take professional photographs of your place and market your listing on third-party booking sites like Airbnb, VRBO, and Booking.com. Your home benefits from our dynamic rate technology, which automatically adjusts your nightly price for big events like Texas SandFest and seasonal changes. It's how we help our owners earn better returns and keep their home booked longer.
