Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Designed Vacation Rentals?
DesignedVR is a truly full-service vacation rental management company located in the United States. We’re dedicated to set a new benchmark for vacation rental stays by providing the most affordable and convenient rental experience to both homeowners and guests. Our goal is to provide a consistent, high-end experience like one would expect at a fine hotel, while retaining the unique benefits and authenticity of a vacation rental home.
How easy is it to get started with Designed Vacation Rentals?
Getting started is easy and risk-free. We can activate homes that are existing vacation rentals in a few weeks if everything is ready to go. Our contract has no minimum term, volume commitments, or start-up fees. Normal activation includes shooting new photos, creating a detailed listing, setting pricing, activating advertising on the main internet channels and beginning to take reservations - all in as little as a few weeks! This can take longer depending on the homeowner's schedule, or if a home is in the process of being converted from a residence or long-term rental.
Does my home need to be of a certain quality or size?
To some degree, yes. While DesignedVR does not work exclusively with luxury properties, we do focus on upper-end rentals in desirable locations. This could be a high-end studio apartment in a downtown metro area, or an inviting mid-range home within a prime vacation destination. We will look at your home and let you know if we feel it will make a good rental.
