As travelers adapt to the new way of traveling, vacation property management companies worldwide are working behind the scenes to implement safety measures, ensuring guests have an enjoyable and hassle-free vacation. Sheldon N.C.

Vacasa is the leading full-service, property management company in Belize with over 200 rental options to choose from. The company is backed by a strong team of 20+ professionals that include Local Operations Managers, Concierges, Rates Analysts, Guest Service Representatives, Housekeepers, and Handymen. With the ever-changing travel trends over the last few months, the company has taken steps towards getting each property Gold Standard Certified alongside a new premium clean program. Additionally, a mid-term rental program captures the marketing for those looking to spend more time in Belize while working remotely.

When you stay with Vacasa, you can count on safety and well-being. Vacasa only uses Gold Standard Certified tour guides and transfer personnel. Check-ins are safe and easy; guests are provided with lockbox codes for low “person-to-person” contact. Besides being contact-less, you can simply arrive and relax, since we provide every home with starter amenities like hair and body care products, cleaning supplies (where permitted by law), and additional stock of basic household items like paper towels, toilet paper, a new sponge, dishwashing soap, and laundry detergent.
Since Vacasa opened its doors in 2009 in the US, Vacasa homes have been serviced and cleaned in line with a set of consistent, high standards. Now, on top of the standard cleaning guidelines, Vacasa has launched expanded measures to support and protect the Vacasa community: Vacasa Premium Clean. The new program meets or exceeds CDC cleaning recommendations and aligns with guidance from hospitality industry experts, such as the Vacation Rental Management Association’s SafeHome guidelines. Of course, that’s in addition to the guidelines set in place by Belize’s Gold Standard Tourism program. 

A New Travel Landscape

Vacasa has always been known for short term vacation rentals. However, in light of reduced reservations due to travel restrictions and Covid-19, the Mid Term Rental was launched. With Vacasa’s Mid Term rentals, guests get a new opportunity for extended stays in Belize. Whether for work or for relaxation, this option is available for any guest.  With more than 50 options in this program, guests get to enjoy the same great service and quality of Vacasa Belize for reduced rates based on the season.  Reach out at [email protected] while options last.
