Rental Management

What is the process to get started?

Call us at 904-932-1657 and we can give you a complimentary rental revenue and assessment of your property.

We provide you a unique owner dashboard so you can review results from your properties, any day, anytime. We send you a monthly report to your email and to the owner portal.

Owners are encouraged to regularly update their property. With these changes, owners may wish to expand or sometimes limit certain amenities offered. While expansion is never a problem, restricting or limiting certain amenities could affect existing reservations.

If an owner wishes to restrict or eliminate certain amenities, VTrips will enact these changes for all new reservations going forward. Please note that before making changes that could affect existing reservations, you must contact VTrips and verify the reservations in place that this change could affect. Your local office will work with you to ensure these changes are made to your satisfaction without compromising the guests currently booked at your property.

When listing your property for rent, it is important to offer all the comforts of home your family would expect. This includes providing many of the basic amenities that you would have within your own home such as an HD Smart TV, Wi-Fi, coffee maker, proper cookware, and more.

A detailed list of all the items and amenities will be provided for you. If there are items that you are missing and need assistance in stocking, your dedicated local rental manager can coordinate the purchase and stocking to have your home guest-ready.

Reviews are monitored on a per unit level and managed on many platforms to include social media, Google, Yelp, BBB, airbnb and VRBO.

Our team stays responsive and addresses the concerns of guests and owners as needed.

Reservations

As an owner, what if I have a guest that I want to rent to?

This would be classified as an owner referral reservation. When you have an owner referral, please send an email to OwnerAccount@VTrips.com. Include the guest contact information in the email along with the following details:

  • Guest First and Last Name
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Arrival and Departure Date
  • Price for Rent that you Quoted

Please remember, there are additional taxes and fees when quoting your potential guests. This is important to avoid lost bookings due to a difference in quotes.

Guests will book your unit with the understanding the property will be available. The guest will sign a contract and make all necessary travel arrangements including flight and rental car. To preserve owner, property and company integrity we are not able to relocate guests to accommodate owner stays. For this reason it is important to book owner reservations as soon as possible. The owner’s calendar is open for approximately two (2) future years. Owner reservations can be booked via the owner portal.

Accounting

When do owners get paid?
Our company operates using accrual accounting. Revenue is reflected on the owner’s account when the revenue is earned rather than when payment from the guest is received. We pay all of our owners on or before the 15th of each month for the month that just ended. So, if the guest stays at your property in January, you would get paid on your January statement that will be released on or around February 15th.
If a guest stay covers more than one calendar month you will be paid based on the actual days stayed during each calendar month. For a reservation that checks in on 1/28 and checks out on 2/13, owners are paid for 1/28-1/31 on January’s statement and 2/1-2/13 on February’s statement.

Housekeeping

How often does our housekeeping team clean your property?

Our housekeeping team ensures that your property gets a thorough cleaning after every stay. We also schedule deep cleans to guarantee that your rental remains in tip-top shape.

Please contact our local office for any housekeeping or maintenance issues.
