The past year has been a mixed bag for vacation rental property managers around the world. 

Companies that manage rentals in rural, drive-to destinations where domestic travel thrives saw their occupancy skyrocket. For them, 2021 was a record-breaking year. 

On the other hand, property managers in some urban areas – and regions that remained on lockdown for long periods of time – continued to struggle. 

In addition, the past year was characterised by a wave of mergers and acquisitions, with already large companies like Vacasa and Awaze gaining even more ground. As consolidation intensified, the map of the vacation rental industry was redrawn. 

And so, to reflect the changes of the past year, it’s time for us to update The World’s Top 50 Property Managers: a publication that celebrates the best and boldest companies in the industry. 

The top 50 is the definitive ranking of the largest short-term rental property managers in the world by number of properties, compiled and published annually in October by Rentals United. 

Members of this prestigious list receive a ‘Top 50’ badge and gain tremendous visibility amongst property owners and industry leaders worldwide

Below, you’ll find a list of the biggest, fastest-growing, tech-enabled companies that are redefining the future of the vacation rental property management industry.
