Property Management for your Condo
On Island Property Management
If you do plan to buy a vacation property in Hawaii, it’s important to consider who will take care of it when you’re not there. Depending on where you live, how often you plan to reside in your vacation rental, and how much work you want to do, you may consider hiring a vacation rental company to manage your vacation rental. Here on Kauai, there are a number of well-qualified professionals who can manage your vacation rental for you so you do not have to worry. Hawaii Life has a vacation rental division that is fabulous. Most short-term property managers have a wealth of experience to guide you through the process, provide you with contracts and checklists as well as offering bookkeeping and money handling services on your behalf. Unless you reside here, you are actually required in the state of Hawaii to hire a local company or person who can check on your vacation rental property and respond to guest requests.
If you do decide to undertake this task on your own, vacation rental websites like VRBO.com and Airbnb.com can help you get online exposure and offer online hosting capability as well as tools, resources, and support on operations. Be sure to hire a professional photographer to capture your new vacation rental in its best light. It is also essential that your vacation rental is kept in top condition, sparkling clean upon arrival, and that the landscaping is pristine.
Our local team of rental professionals focuses solely on Maui properties. As active members of travel industry associations, we keep current on industry trends, consumer needs, and new technologies.
