Holiday Vacation Rentals is a full-service professional vacation rental management company in northern Michigan servicing Boyne City, Charlevoix, Cross Village, Glen Harbor, Harbor Springs, and Petoskey areas.
Our mission is to provide rental guests with memorable “Up North” vacation experiences and to maximize rental revenue for home owners.
If you own a vacation home and are thinking about or already renting it out, we can help.
Renting your vacation home when it’s not being used can be a great way to offset the costs of homeownership, but the challenges can be daunting. We make it easy for you by managing the entire process.
We manage the marketing and advertising, booking reservations, guest amenities, arrival and services, housekeeping, and necessary bookkeeping including the collection and remittal of state and local accommodation tax.
Our expert staff will also ensure that your property is well cared for. When a need arises, we coordinate qualified and experienced contractors for services and repairs necessary to maintain your home.
And as a homeowner in our rental program, you will receive detailed monthly trust account reports on your rentals and receive your rental money quickly. You can also easily block out time for your own use without restriction.
Renting out your vacation home doesn’t need to be hard! We take the work out of it, making it practical and convenient for you.
Peace of Mind
We understand that when renting your vacation home, you need to have peace of mind that your property will be in good hands. With Holiday Vacation Rentals, you can rest assured.
Holiday Vacation Rentals is a licensed and insured management company. In addition to managing the rental of your home, our expert staff will ensure your property is well cared for. We require Rental Damage Protection or a security deposit from each renter to protect your home against accidental damage. Travel insurance is optionally available to guests and can help ensure that you are paid and the renter is protected when an unexpected travel delay or event occurs that results in a cancellation.
Our property management and guest rental agreements are reviewed by legal professionals and include terms and conditions that protect your interests. As a licensed real estate company, we comply with state law under the Michigan Occupational Code, meet Trust Accounting requirements, and ensure compliance with state use and local accommodations tax assessments. You’ll receive year-end statements and 1099 forms for accurate income tax filing.

Our goal of providing rental guests with memorable vacation experiences goes hand-in-hand with maximizing your rental revenue. Our staff is trained in industry best practices, and our exceptional customer service results in satisfied guests returning year after year. Our good-neighbor policy, rental rules, and 24-hour emergency assistance hotline help to ensure the safety and satisfaction of guests and owners alike.

Our destination marketing highlights the many benefits of choosing northern Michigan as a vacation destination. We reach rental guests on our blog, social media, and our email promotions.

Our blog posts and email newsletter will provide what you need to know to understand what’s happening in the market and how it might affect your rental business.
From assessing the impact of the changing business model of distribution channels like HomeAway and Airbnb to providing insights into what guests are looking for and tips for how to maximize your rental revenue, we will help empower you with the knowledge you need to stay ahead of the game.
