What is Vacayo?
The name Vacayo comes from “Vacay,” short for vacation, and “O,” used in West Africa to make any activity sound and feel awesome. Similar to the word “Yo,” or the phrase “Let’s play-o.” We believe that every homeowner can use their property to earn passive income and achieve financial freedom. For travelers, they get to enjoy welcoming, professionally-managed homes at an unmatched value. Think an improved version of the traditional houseguest. In a nutshell, Vacayo is creating opportunities for homeowners and travelers alike to reap maximum benefits from the sharing economy.
Vacayo offers real estate management platform that guarantees landlords higher income and eliminates vacancy risk. Our propriety software ensures landlords earn steady monthly rent that’s 10% higher than a longterm rental while leveraging “Superhosts” for on-the-ground operations. Once a landlord has added their property on Vacayo, they instantly get an offer, the home gets verified, and the lease is signed immediately. Homes added to Vacayo are saved automatically in our system and syndicated across the top short-term rental websites. Our verified “Superhosts” work tirelessly to provide the best possible experience to our guests from all over the world. Currently, Vacayo is available to landlords in San Diego, San Jose, Miami, Tampa/St Pete, Mountain View, New York, with plans for a rapid expansion to other US cities in 2018.
