Vacation rental book

6 Replies

Does anyone know of a good book on vacation rentals or other educational sources?

@Tom Fontaine I haven't read any books on vacation rentals, but there are many investors here that invest in vacation rentals that would be happy to answer any questions you may have.  If you haven't heard yet, there's a new vacation rental forum in the works here, so keep an eye out for that:

Is there any specific questions you had about vacation rentals?  

@Tom Fontaine check out the Vacation Rental Success podcast with host Heather Bayer. Very informative stuff. You can find it on iTunes. 

Thanks @Karen Margrave . Really looking forward to this. We launched our first vacation rental earlier this year, and currently are rehabbing another of our long term rentals to convert it to a STR. Very excited to share experiences/ideas and see what others are doing!

Hi, @Tom Fontaine - when we started, I read "How To Rent Vacation Properties By Owner" by Christine Karpinski and followed her plan pretty much exactly as written. I believe there are a few more books and a lot more resources since then.

Here's a link to another BP discussion on vacation rental books that might help. Check out Matt Landau's podcast here on BP for more insight as well.

Thanks to all of you for your great feedback.  I'm checking out everything that has been mentioned so far.  If you hear about anything else, please let me know.  Thanks again!
