Vacasa FAQs (frequently asked questions)

How will Vacasa St. Croix USVI work?

Vacasa works directly with vacation property owners and managers. To start, they will confirm permits, clean, do an initial inspection, and prepare attractive online listings for the property. Then they’ll full-service manage the property, including:

  • managing listings on all major booking platforms (OTAs)
  • create attractive photographs, 360-degree tours, and crisp descriptions
  • leverage technology to automatically update your prices for maximum revenue
  • provide 24/7 on-the-ground assistance for your guests
  • conduct regular quality professional cleaning & housekeeping (usually subcontracting with local cleaning companies)

How much will Vacasa charge St. Croix rental owners?

Management fees for vacation rental property management ranges between 10% and 50% of revenue. Vacasa’s are on the high side, between 40-50%. Remember that not all vacation rental managers have the same service, or charge for them in the same way, so when shopping for a vacation rental manager, you usually get what you pay for. If the fee is low, then probably the services are not comprehensive or high quality. Fees also vary by local market due to many competitive factors.

Should I hire a property manager like Vacasa for my St. Croix vacation rental property at all?

This depends entirely on how comfortable you are with directly managing the entire vacation rental process, how much time you have, and what your options are to maximize revenue on your rental. It will differ for each owner. A full-service vacation rental manager like Vacasa can cover booking, marketing, housekeeping, etc, leaving very little for the owner to bother with. But that comes at the price of giving up ~40-50% of the revenue.

Of course you can manage the entire process yourself, but often you’ll find it’s a full-time job which you can’t or don’t want to do. Factors to consider are your lifestyle, free time, abilities, your future plans, etc. An additional hurdle for St. Croix vacation rental property owners are they usually are not locally based on STX, making remote management a lot more complicated.

How do Vacasa fees compare with others?

Difficult to directly answer because the associated services vary so much. In general, most vacation rental managers charge 10% to 50% of the revenue. The lower end is simply marketing to guests, while the higher end is turn-key management services like Vacasa. Best to shop around, get quotes, then figure out which package works best for you.
