Property Owner FAQs

About Beach Vacations

Beach Vacations is a full-service property management solution created by property owners, for property owners. Our elevated property care program is created to adapt to your lifestyle through a simple and secure rental process. Beach Vacations offers exceptional service and standards, expert revenue management, contactless technology and value-driven marketing.

Beach Vacations delivers the freedom and flexibility of a full-service property management company, coupled with the insight and approach of a trusted local partner. This property management program is designed to adapt to all of the ways people live, work and travel. The winning combination of established in-house operations and contactless technology serves both homeowners and guests.

The answer is yes! Primarily because consistent reservation rates are found well beyond online travel agencies, also known as OTAs. The combination of prominent placement on all relevant sites and easy-to-use direct booking helps your property build an identity of its own.

With Beach Vacations, the personality and unique local charm of your property is never lost – our team makes sure its reach is far and reservations consistent. 

The second item to consider is the management itself. Beach Vacations is for property owners, by property owners. This means our team understands the importance of management as a tool to gain back your time, and grow your investment.  

Consider the value of your time, and then factor in the hours spent on marketing, maintenance, guest queries, housekeeping coordination and rate adjustments. Beach Vacations handles all of these tasks and more.  

Rental Services

Yes, you can provide your own linens, towels, etc. 

Hotel-grade luxury linens, bath towels, kitchen dish cloths and towels, and towels for the beach, pool and/or hot tub.

Yes, Beach Vacations works alongside a design and renovation wing to recommend property adjustments and update furnishings and fixtures. This team has oftentimes found a few adjustments make a big impact in rental return. 

Phase 1 | Property Evaluation: The on-boarding process begins with a walk-through. We’ve oftentimes learned a rental will shine with a few subtle adjustments. Afterwards, you will receive a unique management proposal and rental recommendations. If available, this is when we would request any previous rental history.

Phase 2 | Owner Review: Our full-service property management program expertly balances the needs of today’s guests with owner priorities. Based upon the evaluation, our team provides custom recommendations and property projections for your review. We are here to help guide which features add the most value.

Phase 3 | Onboard with Beach Vacations: After you choose to move forward with the Beach Vacations program, our team jumps into action to capture professional photos, complete upgrades, prepare floor plans, establish rental criteria, setup remaining business items and schedule your first post-launch owner check-in.

This process depends on where you are with current management and stages of ownership. For units already under a rental program or self-managing properties with little need for upgrades, on-boarding can take just a few days.

For properties under construction, in the process of sale or under renovation, the process may need to adapt to those timelines.

Complete property merchandising is when the Beach Vacations team builds an online property presence and value-driven marketing with a custom property description, professional photography, floor plan and amenity listings. 

Each property is managed by a core management team consisting of professionally designated, state-licensed property managers, a general manager and an operations staff. 

The Beach Vacations Revenue Manager team is dedicated to finding the best rates for your property. More than 30 years of local authority and experience enable this team to adapt rental rates and increase reservations throughout seasonal changes, holidays and unexpected weather events. This team closely monitors your property rates to adjust and increase depending upon dynamic pricing tools. 

Beach Vacations is an active member in industry and local tourism associations, VRMA, VRHP, OPMA, Chambers of Commerce, etc.
