A New Travel Landscape: Mid-Term Rentals in Belize with Vacasa

by Carolee Chanona

This year, the travel landscape has undoubtedly shifted. At the onset of COVID-19, property managers and rental hosts aimed towards long-term tenants versus its traditional short-stay rental market. Meanwhile, a middle-ground surfaced: meeting customers half-way to keep business afloat with mid-term rentals, classed as a stay of up to 6 months. Though not mandatory in Belize, arriving passengers—digital nomads included—opted for a self-inflicted voluntary quarantine after travel. Longer stays, like booking for a month, began trending with people accommodating a chopper workforce, restructure business model, and a remote workload from home. And so, herein lies a niche platform in Belize: mid-term rentals with property managers like Vacasa Belize.

Perks of a Mid-Term Rental in Belize

Hotels are great, but it just isn’t the same thing as sitting on the back porch of your Vacasa rental in San Pedro Town as your host breaks out a map to recommend things to do. Not to mention, the bottle of Traveller’s rum that greeted you in the rental’s refrigerator. It’s officially a space to call your own in Belize. Even before COVID-19, there was a definite trend towards mid-term stays with a clear market for the rising ‘digital nomad’ generation (that has nothing to do with age). After all, combining work with living in a different location was seen as a lifestyle choice for those lucky enough not to be tied to a desk or mortgage.

Now, that generation has grown exponentially as workplaces extend ‘work from home’ policies while more of us are being tempted by the attraction of living and working in spaces that are not our normal homes. So why not with a mid-term rental in Belize with Vacasa? Beach destinations are a-plenty in Belize; but, these Vacasa properties are worth a visit year-round, with more becoming Gold Standard certified on a near-weekly basis. In addition to adhering to Belize’s Gold Standard program, guests of Vacasa can rest assured with its Premium Clean program; expanded housekeeping measures meet or exceed CDC recommendations and align with guidance from hospitality industry experts. Enjoy peace of mind with flexible travel options, even up to 7 days before check-in; you can reschedule your trip, or cancel and receive 100% of the cost as a Future Stay Credit.
