The Benefits of Renting Your Vacation Home  

  • Perhaps you have a second home that you haven’t gotten to use as often as you planned, or maybe you’ve found that you could use a little extra money to cover some expenses. No matter what your motivation may be, renting your second home to vacationers is a great way to share your home with others and make a little bit of extra income.
  • And the best part: you can still use your home yourself. Renting your vacation home doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the time you may be able to spend there. You can reserve dates for your own family just like you would with any other guest, but the difference is you get first choice.
Marketing and Promoting Your Vacation Rental

  • At Cuchara Vacation Rentals we understand Internet Marketing and Promotion, as well as other forms of marketing and advertising. 


  • We present your home to its best advantage with pictures, descriptions, and searchable lists of characteristics and amenities that allow guests to find their perfect home quickly and easily and continue all the way through the booking process.


  • We continually monitor the market conditions in the area which helps us determine the best rates for your property. We work hard to create a pricing strategy for your home that will maximize its rental income potential.  


  • We respond as quickly as possible to all matters concerning your property and communicate any potential concerns to you promptly. Our success depends on happy guests that will return and refer us to their family and friends. We treat our guests with courtesy, respect, and a commitment to excellence.
