Full-service Vacation Rental Management

Sometimes SMALLER is BETTER:

While larger vacation rental management companies may handle hundreds of properties at a time, at Up At Sunrise VRA our team will never manage more than twenty. We focus exclusively on Okaloosa Island, Fort Walton Beach, Florida and nearby areas and get to know every property owner and every loyal repeat guest by name. No automated phone answering services, no impersonal administrative reports or billing, no confusing fees. We manage your vacation rental just like we manage our own rental properties. If a guest is looking for extra pillows at 11 pm on a Tuesday, she can call us at any time and the property manager will tell her exactly which closet to open to find what she needs. We visit and inspect each property on a regular basis and keep regular communication with both owners and guests.


Just as you carefully review all the choices for a vacation rental manager for your property we go through a similar process when evaluating which properties will fit best into our personalized portfolio. We take pride in our work and choose to work with owners who have a similar outlook and place high value on quality and customer satisfaction. You interview us and we interview you. 

THE NITTY-GRITTY  DETAILS - What to expect from our service:


  • REVENUE MAXIMIZATION: ongoing focus on pricing and occupancy, competitive analysis of the market and cost control. 
  • MARKETING: versatile approach to marketing tailored for each specific property. 
  • PROFESSIONAL CLEANING and HOUSEKEEPING: we inspect after each cleaning. 
  • MINOR MAINTENANCE  included at no additional cost. Some things like changing AC filters, unclogging sink drains or replacing a light bulb should not be a drain on your rental profit. We’ll take care of it.
  • OPEN COMMUNICATION: Call, text, email any time. You have a trusted friend on the Island. You can always reach your property manager whether for a midnight emergency or just to ask about the weather.
  • ALL THE PESKY PAPERWORK and DETAILS: We will handle all that, including filing monthly Sales & Use tax, setting up pricing and online listing sites, getting rental agreements signed, reservations scheduled and any necessary maintenance completed. 
  • THE BOTTOM LINE: We make money when YOU make money. We are happy when YOU and YOUR GUESTS are happy. 


  • EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE: Going above and beyond for every guest.
  • A PERSONAL TOUCH: From insider recommendations for local restaurants to helping guests order a surprise birthday cake or find the best sunset cruise, we strive to make each guest feel special and appreciated.
  • OPEN COMMUNICATION: Just like owners, guests can also reach the property manager at any time for any reason. Whether it is a simple question or a problem resolution issue, we strive for prompt, courteous and professional communication. 
  • THE BOTTOM LINE: HAPPY GUESTS create more REVENUE and turn into loyal clients and promoters.
