Checkmate Rentals

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Trusted Vacation Rental Management Partner


Our team works with you as the property owner to create the best short term rental property possible. Here’s how easy it is to get started:

  1. After a quick free consultation, you’ll have an idea just how much revenue your property can make, and how much time, money, and headache you’ll save working with us.
  2. You’ll tell us the ins and outs of your property, while we get staff in place to operate your rental.
  3. Within a few days, we can have your property live and brining money in the door!

We know you have endless options for property management, so here’s why we think you’ll love working with us:

  1. Control: Most property managers collect your money, wait a few weeks, take their fee, and then give you what’s left. With Checkmate, your money goes straight into your bank account. Once per month we’ll invoice you for our simple, easy to understand fee.
  2. Flexibility: Want to be totally hands-off? We’ve got you covered! Want to do your own repairs when they come up? Fine with us! Checkmate understands that it’s your property. We’ll partner with you to help where you want it, and stay out of the way when you don’t.
  3. Service: We’re a small business, not a start-up. We don’t have investors to satisfy or debt obligations to meet. That means our only motivation is to serve you well and ensure that you get the most out of your property.
  4. Affordability: Too many property managers hold their own customers back by charging an arm and a leg. Reach out and see just how much value we can provide!

Nope! It’s your property. We’ll manage it on your schedule. Whether it’s a few open weekends or 365 days per year, we’ll never restrict your use of your own home.

No way! Life can change in a hurry, and we get that. All of our services are month-to-month. We’re willing to bet on ourselves, because it’s the best way to earn your trust.

Cancel if you need to, but we think you’ll want to stay.

This is where we shine! We are one of the most cost effective STR property management companies in the industry.

It depends a bit on your property size and revenue forecast, but we can promise you this: Our management fees are never above 20% of revenue.

Not to us! If we don’t already have a team in your area, we’ll set one up just for you. We manage properties all over the country, and even in Canada. From South Florida to Northern California, big cities to Small Town, USA — Checkmate rentals is here for you.

Each host is responsible for ensuring proper permitting and regulatory compliance is met, but we already work with a number of housing associations and condo authorities to operate successful rental properties for our clients.

It would be our genuine pleasure! Let us know your address and property details and we’ll provide you a free estimate.
