Only 35 miles from Seattle, Whidbey Island feels a world away. Whale watching, hiking, crabbing, and more draw a steady stream of visitors from the Seattle Metro area all year long. As real estate prices rise and interest in this wild place strengthens, both long-time and potential vacation homeowners are ideally suited to capitalize on the booming Whidbey Island short-term rental market.
Renting your home to visitors with a Whidbey Island vacation rental property management company could prove to be both profitable and convenient. However, every town and development has different restrictions surrounding short-term rentals, so it's best to consult your local planning department, check your HOA's bylaws, and read the regulations in your neck of the woods. Visitors to your home must pay at least a 6.5 percent Washington Sales Tax and a 2 percent Island County Sales and Lodging Tax, with the possibility of additional regional taxes and fees.
We're here to help make renting easy. Even when you're not on the island 24/7, we are. Our resident employees, not contractors, live in the area and are available to attend to everything from regular cleans to guest-related emergencies. Housekeeping, maintenance, and operations support staff handle the tedious tasks, so anytime you visit, your home is ready for you. We'll never restrict how often you can vacation at your place, either, so your home remains in your control.
We can help make your home a passive-income generator, too. Digital marketing is crucial to success in the increasingly competitive Whidbey Island vacation rental market, and we provide the tools to help you get more out of your listing. Our all-inclusive management fee covers professional photography, 3D tour creation, and listing services on internationally renowned websites like Airbnb, Google, and Expedia. You'll generate income in any season with our dynamic rate-setting technology, which automatically adjusts your home's nightly price to demand, season, and local events. It's how we earn you more on holidays and help keep your home's calendar busy during quieter times of the year.

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.
