How can I increase my Annual Vacation Rental Income?


Looking for Florida Keys Property Management Services? Coco Plum Vacation Rentals is often asked by property owners what they can do to improve the revenues generated from their investment property in the Florida Keys. Over the years we have learned many of those secrets and want to share them with you.


Florida Keys vacation rental guests will only see photos online of your property before they book. Therefore, it is critical that your property be 100% up to date in its décor and maintenance. If you put the old furniture from your primary home into your vacation home, you are not going to get any guests excited about staying with you. On the contrary, if you utilized a professional designer here in the Keys that Coco Plum Vacation Rentals suggests, your home will look polished and appealing. Remember less is more, guests don’t want to see tons of knickknacks, personal items or cheap finishes. Keep it slick and simple, think upscale hotel.

Once you have the décor all set Coco Plum Vacation Rentals will hire a professional photographer to photograph your home with an eye for guest appeal. Their staff will be with the photographer and assist in staging the home for you.


The proper types of amenities can make or break your rental. Guests on vacation want to have all the conveniences of home and then some. In the Keys, for example, guests will expect to find a bait freezer at their Keys vacation home. Coco Plum Vacation Rentals keeps a standard items list that all of our property owners get to assure their rental property meets or exceeds a guests expectations.
