well all I can say is good luck, we bought our single family home in 90's and all time we did short term rents we lost money, it probably depends if you live in area. we are in UK and got screwed by every management company we used. Either they billed us for repairs which were crap, or they never did the repairs. They never got us the bookings they said they would. When we would come over on holiday we would spend days in meetings listening to their excuses plus their promises it would get better, it never did. We changed to long term rents and then saved the money to pay to rent when we came over. Hope that helps Pete and Carol. ... more

Hi Renee,

Have you been there? If not then book at least on night there and decide for yourself. Do not buy there without doing this first. Yes, the amenities center is excellent, but it sits outside the resort's gates. Don't be fooled by the extremely low prices. The lowest prices will be for units that are a very long way away from the amenities and for the most part their furnishings will need to be replaced and the interior renovated. There are some nice looking units on Airbnb and those owners all spent at least $20,000 to $25,000 to fix them up. Click on my picture and read my reviews. A lot are from buyers in the tourist area. Love to hear from you. ... more

Thank you all for answering my questions and giving references to the very useful blogging site and other sites. Seems like long term rental is a lower-risk investment approach for someone like me who don't have time to do my own bookings. ... more
