The city of Seattle has been one of the top-growing cities in the nation for the last decade. Whether it's Pike Place Market and the attractions downtown, or the solitude of Bainbridge and Vashon Islands, the Puget Sound region has something for everyone to enjoy. On a smaller scale, the City of Tacoma carries equal if not greater charm with its historic downtown, Ruston, and Point Defiance Park. And less than an hour from Seattle, Snoqualmie Pass has year-round outdoor activities, including snow skiing, hiking, and mountain biking. That means incredible opportunity for guests and Seattle vacation homeowners.
While renting out a vacation home in the Seattle area is a great way to maximize income, it can be tough to juggle guest communications, upkeep, and marketing all at once. Vacasa’s full-service approach to vacation rental property management helps our homeowners streamline and simplify the entire process, from housekeeping to connecting with guests after their stay to collect reviews. Our local team helps ensure your home and guests are professionally cared for when you're away, while our world-class marketing services provide unprecedented reach on top booking sites to fill your calendar with more vacationers searching for homes just like yours. Plus, our industry-leading dynamic pricing technology adjusts your rate to the most competitive price—around the clock, all year long.
This results in higher occupancy year-round, better reviews, and more rental income without sacrificing your free time. That’s the Vacasa difference.
Taxes and fees vary by market. Washington State taxes that vacation rental owners should be aware of are a 6.5 percent sales tax, a 2.1 percent King County Sales Non-RTA (Regional Transit Authority) Tax, and a 0.1 percent City of Seattle Tax that is yet to be determined. Zoning, permitting, and restrictions on vacation rentals are complicated in Seattle and different in every surrounding city, so you should acquaint yourself with regulations in your area to learn more about your vacation rental opportunities.
There are endless possibilities for vacation homes depending on the experience you're looking for. With the outdoor activities associated with Snoqualmie Pass, the quiet escape of Vashon or Bainbridge Island, or the hustle and bustle of the cities of Tacoma and Seattle, there’s something for everyone.
If you’re curious about how much you could be making with Vacasa, let’s talk. We’d love to show you how we can help you earn more, worry less, and rent with ease.
Guests’ expectations are getting higher, especially when it comes to cleanliness. Our enhanced professional cleaning program, Vacasa Premium Clean, meets or exceeds CDC guidelines, so guests have extra confidence to rent your home.
Once your home is thoroughly cleaned, we treat hard and soft surfaces throughout the home with a hospital-grade, EPA-approved disinfectant, paying special attention to high-touch surfaces.
Employees are provided with personal protective equipment (gloves and face masks) to wear at all times while visiting homes for maintenance, housekeeping, or any other purpose.
Our upgraded cleaning measures and the additional time our housekeepers spend caring for your home all come at no extra cost to you or your guests.
Your listing will be prominently featured everywhere guests are searching, like Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com. And our digital marketing specialists ensure Vacasa homes are highly visible across search engines, display advertising, social media, and email marketing.
We obsess over delivering a seamless, stress-free vacation for your guests, from booking the right home to stocking the bathroom toiletries. And if your guests have questions, our Customer Experience team is available around the clock to answer all guest phone calls and emails.
We believe in earning your long-term business, not locking you into an ironclad contract. We don't limit your use of your vacation home—so you can enjoy it whenever you like, and know that it'll be sparkling clean and ready for you when you get there. Your home will always be yours.
