Are you wondering, “Should I hire a property manager for my vacation rental?” Are they worth it? Especially if you are not local or within a short driving distance of your rental. Owning a vacation rental can be an excellent source of income, but managing it can be daunting. From marketing to guest communication and maintenance, the responsibilities are endless. That’s where a property manager comes in. This Q&A-style blog will explore why hiring a property manager for your vacation rental is a wise investment.

Q: What are the key benefits of using a property manager for vacation rental homes?


Who can manage my rental property?


When looking for a property manager, you want to make sure you pick one with years of experience in the industry and a fully established team. Managing a vacation rental is a lot of work, so you want to ensure the one you pick has the capacity to handle everything to ensure your home and its guests are taken care of.

Why choose a property manager?


Property managers handle absolutely everything from the moment a guest first inquires to the moment they depart. With GoodNight Stay’s full-service plan, you won’t need to worry about anything. We manage your home’s cleanings, inspections, service requests, guest services, reservations, marketing, accounting, and even permit and license applications, just to name a few.

Airbnb vs. Long-term Rentals – Which one is more profitable?


There are a lot of differentiating factors when deciding to list your property as an Airbnb (short-term rental) vs. long-term rental (6+ month/year tenants). Payment frequency, method, and amount differ between Airbnb and traditional renting. Since Airbnb is used for short-term vacation rentals, payment functions are seen as similar to those of a hotel. Stays are generally paid for on a nightly basis, commanding a higher daily rate due to a number of factors. By contrast, traditional rentals occur over a set duration, with payments collected once during each given period – typically once per month. Generally, this will typically result in a lower rent price per night compared to listing your property as a short-term rental, but this does not consider the assurance of a steady tenancy. This is why we recommend finding a manager who is able to offer your home as a short-term and long-term rental. This way, if your home is underperforming in your market’s slow season, you can have to ability to acquire a tenant that guarantees you income during that time.

How much do property managers charge?


The cost for a property manager to manage your vacation rental varies per company and depends on the type of services you want them to handle. Some offer a strict one-style management plan of 25%, while others, like us at GoodNight Stay, offer 3 different options depending on how much the owner wants to be involved with their rental property:

Do I need a license to manage a short-term rental?


Yes, licenses and permits are required in many states and cities. The best part of choosing GoodNight Stay as your property manager is that when you onboard your home with us, you will be assigned to one of our expert Owner Success Managers, who will guide you and provide all the necessary documents to list your property as a short-term rental legally.

Airbnb vs. VRBO


Airbnb and Vrbo are good choices for hosts looking to advertise their listings in front of millions of travelers. While there are some differences in commission fees, cancellation policies, audience, property types, and review systems, none of these mean that one platform is inherently better than the other. In fact, many hosts choose to list their properties on both platforms to maximize their listings’ visibility and increase their occupancy and revenue. By choosing GoodNight Stay as your property manager, you can have your host listed not just on both but on over 350 booking platforms, increasing the opportunity for your home to get bookings.

Townhouse Success with Tawney:

“We recently listed our townhouse with Good Night Stay for short-term rentals. Tawney Felde is our Success Manager, and she is awesome to work with! She has been on top of all the details and is available for us and our guests. A review on the unit recently cited their appreciation for her responsiveness! Using Good Night Stay has proven to be a great decision. They handle everything. Thank you, Tawney, for making this so easy for us!”

Turning an Investment into Success:

“Kudos to Good Night Stay. My husband and I are new at owning rental property and knew we had to find a seasoned company to manage our Nashville condo. After much research, we decided on Good Night Stay due to great reviews. Tawney is our personal manager for the property and keeps great communication with us as needed. We have been pleasantly surprised at the frequent rental that GNS has produced from their own website. With all the competition in Nashville, we knew it was an iffy investment, however, Good Night Stay has turned it into a very good investment. I give them a 10 out of 10.”

In conclusion, hiring a property manager for your vacation rental can save you time, maximize your income, and provide peace of mind. Depending on how involved you want to be with your vacation rental, property managers can handle everything from marketing to legal compliance and everything in between. This is why most vacation rental owners are choosing to go with a property manager.

A Day at the Waste Management Phoenix Open: Where Golf Meets Entertainment

The Waste Management Phoenix Open is not just any ordinary golf tournament; it’s an extravaganza that seamlessly blends professional golf’s elegance with a festival’s vibrancy. As attendees of the opening day at TPC Scottsdale, we embarked on a journey filled with excitement, camaraderie, and unforgettable experiences.

Our day began with the practice rounds, where PGA TOUR professionals, community leaders, and VIPs converged to hone their skills and soak in the ambiance of one of golf’s most anticipated events. But beyond the greens, the Phoenix Open offers many activities and venues that cater to every taste and preference.

Must See Attractions

Our first stop was at the Bottled Blonde tent, where the air buzzed with lively chatter, music, and the clinking of glasses. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the course, this vibrant enclave offered a perfect blend of refreshments, entertainment, and stunning views—an ideal way to kickstart our Phoenix Open experience.

Next, we made our way to the Patriots Outpost—an oasis of relaxation amidst the excitement of the tournament. Its full-service bar and expansive outdoor lounging area overlooking the course provided a serene retreat for those seeking a moment of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle.

No Waste Management Phoenix Open visit would be complete without visiting the famed 16th-hole Coliseum. The energy was palpable as we arrived, with fans eagerly vying for the best seats to witness the drama unfold. Pro tip: Arrive early to secure your spot and immerse yourself in the electrifying atmosphere of this iconic venue.

Our journey continued to the Greenskeeper Venue—a verdant sanctuary adorned with lush greenery and Instagram-worthy backdrops at every turn. Its private terrace and lounge area offered a premium experience for those looking to elevate their Phoenix Open adventure. And let’s not forget the yummy food—chicken tenders, buffalo fries, mac ‘n’ cheese, tacos, and more. Each bite is a testament to the event’s commitment to excellence in hospitality.

For our final stop, we ventured to the Draft Kings Nineteenth Hole. It is an inviting haven where fans can indulge in delicious food and drinks while watching the tournament. Enjoy the 19th hole from either indoors or in the cozy outdoor lounging area.

And the fun doesn’t stop at TPC Scottsdale! Several shows and concerts are also going on all week long, just like the Phoenix Open. If you can’t attend any events during the week, don’t panic! The last day of this event is February 11th, 2024 so you still have time to enjoy all that this event brings to Scottsdale.

If you’ve been convinced to attend the Phoenix Open this year and need a place to stay, look no further! We still have a limited amount of homes available! Check out our homes here!

In conclusion, the Waste Management Phoenix Open celebrated sport, community, and the indomitable spirit of human connection. And as we bid farewell to TPC Scottsdale, we carried with us memories that would last a lifetime.
