How much do vacation rental management companies charge in Gulf Shores?

The typical fee for short term rental property management in Gulf Shores can range from 15-30% depending on who you go with and whether they offer partial or full-service management. As an example, some larger national companies only offer partial management at a reduced rate, which requires more effort on your part coordinating with cleaning crews, restocking supplies, changing linens, maintenance, etc.
💸 Leave it to us, we'll help you make more that you would on your own. We're happy to work with you and customize a management solution that aligns with your financial goals.

Are short term vacation rentals allowed in Gulf Shores?

Yes, however, there are some rules and guidelines to be aware of. First, you'll need to determine whether or not you have the right zoning for short-term rental.  Next you will need to submit a business license application even if you are out of the city’s corporate limits but still in police jurisdiction.  All short-term rentals require a building inspection every three years so you will need to contact the building department to set that up as well.
✍️ We take the headache out of managing your own vacation rental by ensuring your property adheres to any existing or new short-term rental regulations, keeping your investment secure and your guests delighted.

Do I need to collect and remit taxes for vacation rentals in Gulf Shores?

Before collecting any short-term rental taxes from your guests, you need to be aware of whether any taxes have already been collected for you.  If you hire a management company, you need to be sure that they are collecting and remitting taxes on your behalf. If you leave a management company’s rental program, then you become responsible for collecting and remitting lodging taxes back to State, County, and City.
🏖️ As a state licensed property management company, we will collect and remit the accommodations taxes on your behalf.

Juanita Wilson

I own a cleaning company that takes care of vacation rentals down here on the Gulf of Mexico and let me just tell ya….Corie and Naomi Thompson are by far some of the very best property managers that I work with. Their attention to the homes/condos they manage is top tier! In this industry we often run into property managers that really do not care about the property, rather just collecting revenue. I am here to tell you that Grand Welcome Gulf Shores is the opposite of those, they take the time to ensure that each of the properties are well taken care of. They are also always willing to pitch in a hand and let it be known that they are there to help! As a business owner I cannot say enough about them. I value, appreciate and respect the job they do! So if you are looking for a property manger to take care of your rental property or just looking for a great rental company to vacation with then look no further than Grand Welcome Gulf Shores!

I highly recommend their services, great veteran-owned business!
