VACATION RENTAL HANDBOOK
Who To Turn To...
Consult guidebooks and the local convention and visitors bureaus to see who rents out properties. Here are the basic options:
Management companies handle everything, from listings and reservations to maintenance, check-ins, and housekeeping.
Rental agencies deal with rental transactions, while upkeep is handled by someone else—though some agencies do both.
Hotels and B&Bs might own apartments that they rent out or might be the middlemen for owners of nearby properties. Rentals often have minimum-stay requirements.
