Can I stay my vacation house for private use under contract with STAYCATION?

Of couse! You can use whenever you want.

Does STAYCATION provider buyer consultation services?

What are STAYCATION’s service fees? How much can I expect my property to earn?

STAYCATION will consult with you to set rental rates that are competitive with similar properties and profitable for you. STAYCATION receives a commission on rentals, and this amount is agreed with you in our contract.

Does STAYCATION guarantee occupancy rates?

Occupancy is determined by factors often outside the control of both the owner and STAYCATION, so occupancy rates are never specified in STAYCATION contracts.
