Haustay is your Premier VRBO
Property Management Partner

Suppose you’ve made an effort to buy a nice property in the San Diego market and you want to take advantage of the buoyant vacation rental market. In that case, you will need to maximize your opportunities. And if you want to explore the exciting world of VRBO, property management will be key. So how can Haustay help you achieve your VRBO vacation rental goals?

If You Value Your Free Time, You Will Look for Help From a Professional VRBO Property Management Company Like Haustay

When you bought your investment property, you were likely looking for an asset that could provide you with ongoing income without hassle. You have plenty of other calls on your time and cannot afford to compromise your valuable downtime with property maintenance or management issues. Trust the professionals at Haustay to do all this work for you.


What Does a VRBO Property Manager Do?

We offer a range of services, from providing you with your online account to working with the city on permits and regulations. In addition, we will give you a comprehensive marketing service and a breakdown of the financial performance of your property.

Sets the Correct Rental Rates

The experienced team at Haustay keeps a weather eye on local market conditions in greater San Diego. We make sure that we optimize the rental rates to keep track of market fluctuations in this dynamic vacation market. As a result, you can be sure that your rental rates will always be fair and attractive and that you’ll never be at a disadvantage compared to other owners in the area.

Markets Your Property

Haustay offers you a comprehensive marketing service. We put your property in front of millions of guests through the VRBO channel and our website. We send our professional photographers to showcase your property in its glory and carefully curate your online listing. Also, we send out emails as part of a targeted marketing campaign to hundreds of prior guests and will amplify your property through all our social media channels.

Create a Direct Booking Site

It’s important to make it as easy as possible for people to book your property when they fall in love with it, and we will create a direct booking site dedicated to your vacation house alone. Your guests can handle every element of their booking through this portal, allowing us to manage each one of them accordingly.

High-Quality Guest Screening

While you will want to maximize your rental opportunities, you will also want to know who is staying on your property. We ensure that your place can only be occupied by the person who originates the booking and their guests, and we will need to approve them in advance. We don’t allow occupancy to exceed the maximum capacity, nor do we allow overnight guests if they are not part of the original reservation. Furthermore, we don’t allow animals , parties, or events unless you specifically allow them. Finally, we insist on no smoking or drug consumption and reserve the right to evict upon violation.

Manage the Repairs and Home Maintenance

From time to time, things break, and most guests will understand if they encounter a plumbing problem or similar issue during their stay. The test of a good management company is how quickly it deals with any repairs, and we will spring into action immediately as soon as we become aware. We only employ the highest quality contractors who are ready to fix any issues promptly. Other than that, we will ensure that the home is always kept in good condition and negotiate with you regarding preventative maintenance.

Curating a 5-star experience for your tenants

We aim to get repeat clients to help maximize your rental opportunities, which is why we insist on curating a gold-star experience for your tenants. Of course, if they are not happy, we’ll want to know why and will take urgent steps to rectify any situation. But we will put every effort into giving your guests the best treatment from the moment they get in touch to when they head home. We’re confident we can achieve these goals and happy that our customers agree. Check out some of these testimonials to see what we mean.


What Will You Pay for VRBO Property Management?

As you weigh up your options, you’ll want to know how much it will likely cost for your VRBO property management in San Diego. You need to consider several factors as you decide how to proceed.

Size of the Rental

The larger the property, the more active property management might be. The structure will cost more to maintain throughout the year, and you may need a larger team of cleaners to ensure it’s in the perfect condition between rentals.

Type of Property

Certain properties will cost more to maintain and manage than others, so you will need to take this into account. After all, if you have a sprawling beachside house with a pool, expect to pay more for maintenance and upkeep than if you have a smaller apartment elsewhere.

Extent of Services

You’ll need to allocate resources for individual management and maintenance if you own multiple vacation rental properties. In addition, each one will need to be independently promoted so that you can get the maximum return from your portfolio.

Location of the Rental

Certainly, looking after a rental property can be easier when you live close to its location. However, living far away means you also need to factor in time and transportation costs. A local property management company will be better placed to deal with any urgent issues that may arise.

Property Condition

If you are to succeed in the world of vacation rentals, your property must always be in first-class condition. This will involve preventive maintenance, periodic painting, and other chores, which must be coordinated and managed properly.

What Our Guests Are Saying


Brett T.

Owner Of Hacienda Terramar

Haustay are ALL STARS!!! Honestly, no one ever wants to have to research getting a new Property Manager, but Nick and his team have made this a painless task. I was looking to drive up rental income on my vacation rental property in Carlsbad and contacted Nick and his team. The pandemic gave me more time in my schedule than usual and I was able to meet Nick at the rental property shortly after our first contact. His professionalism, attention to detail and projections for revenue sold me on using Haustay immediately. Since then I have been impressed every step of the way. Nick and Elisa are a solid ownership team all with different strengths that, combined, make for a winning Team. Their knowledge of how to best position your property for short term vacation rental success is superior and they have been instrumental in guiding me how best to set up the property, marketing the property and driving revenue. They are a FULL SERVICE, one stop shop for Property Management that pays attention to the details. Thank you for your support and help Haustay, I couldn't have asked for more!


Aaron F.

Owner of Costa Balboa

When I decided to rent out my property as a full time vacation rental a friend referred me to Nick and Haustay Vacation Rentals. I am happy that we made the connection. Haustay as over delivered on my expectations of the financial performance of my property. So much so I purchased a second property for Haustay to manage. You will not regret having Haustay manage your vacation rental!


Shawna M.

Owner of Del Mar Shores

My husband and I purchased an oceanfront condo in Solana Beach in 2019 and we hired the largest vacation rental property manager in San Diego (not Haustay) to manage our property. After a year under their management we were unhappy. Their constant employee turnover, inconsistent cleaning quality, and sub-par revenue performance led us to seek out new management. We interviewed a few managers and ultimately went with Haustay and we have been very happy with their performance. They make sure our property is well maintained for, they have been out performing our previous manager in monthly revenue, and are easy to work with. We would highly recommend Haustay Vacation Rentals to any property owner looking for a reliable property manager who you can trust.


Jess S.

Owner Of La Costa Chateau

I have been very happy with Haustay Vacation Rentals and how they have managed my property. They keep me informed of any maintenance needed at the property, they fix things promptly, and really it has saved me so much time…


Tom & Tina T.

Owners of Silver Surf Getaway

I've been a landlord for almost 40 years but completely new to the vacation rental market. Decided to give it a try in Oceanside with our newly purchased condo. My local realtor lives next to Nick and Elisa and made the introduction. Our goal was to get this on the market within 45 days of purchase. Nick gave us a list of items to curate the condo, and we followed it to the letter. The amenities suggested make us stand out from others. We were up and running within our target goal and now have 31, 5 star reviews, and averaging over 70% occupancy. Being an out-of-state owner we have peace of mind and comfort knowing HAUSTAY is handling everything, and we have been absolutely thrilled!!! Our place has a great location near the beach etc with all the cool amenities, so do many others, but what makes our place special is Nick and Elisa's attention to guest details. Almost every review mentions them and how happy they are with their stay. We had not been down here for 9 months and just returned for a winter stay. The place was as clean and neat as we left it. The cleaning crew has not left a crumb or spec of dust, immaculate care!

We considered much larger firms to handle this property and not one of them could offer the touch we get from HAUSTAY.


Bradley B.

Owner of Shore Drive

I previously had a large vacation rental management company manage my oceanfront home. I found my property was lost in their portfolio and both the property and I were not getting the attention we deserved. I started seeking out new management and I am very happy I found Nick and Haustay Vacation Rentals. They have been very professional to work with, the transition in management was not as difficult as I anticipated, and I feel my house is now in better hands with more attentive managers than before. Nick is so much more responsive than the prior managers who seemed to favor their owned properties.

I would not hesitate to recommend Nick and his team at Haustay Vacation Rentals to other property owners seeking qualified, professional, vacation rental management.
