What Types of Properties Do We Manage?

Annual Rental Properties

Annual Rental

One of the best ways to earn immediate cash flow as well as long term ROI is by holding onto your investment property and renting it out to long-term tenants. Long-term tenancies provide income stability and lower your maintenance and upkeep expenses. You know what to expect month after month, and vacancy costs are lower.

Seasonal or Vacation Rental Homes

Seasonal or Vacation Rental Homes

Florida is the perfect place to turn a property into a seasonal vacation rental. You’ll attract a large number of vacationing tenants who are looking for a temporary place to stay that’s more private and comfortable than a hotel. We can help you manage tenant turnover and the maintenance and cleaning between guests.

Investment/Multi-Unit Properties

Investment/Multi-Unit Properties

Whether you have a small apartment building, a duplex in which you’re occupying one unit, or an investment home that you’re planning to live in once you retire, we can work with you to ensure your rental property earns you as much income as possible. We handle tenant placement, maintenance, and keeping your property protected.

Long Term vs. Vacation Rental Management

If you own a property and are not sure whether you want to rent it on an annual or vacation/seasonal rental basis, we can help. Vacation/seasonal rentals have become very popular in recent times. This is largely due to popular listing sites like VRBO and AirBnB. Vacation rentals can often generate higher revenues but they require a different skill set to managing annual rentals. Not every property is a good fit for vacation rentals. Our talented rental team will offer objective advice on which option will deliver the best results for you, both from a lifestyle and revenue perspective.

Testimonials from Local and Out of State Property Owners and Investors

"I came across Gulf Coast Property Management at the same time I was looking to part ways with my current rental management company that was failing me. The transition to Gulf Coast was smooth, and they were able to pick up the mess that my previous company had left me with. The team at Gulf Coast has maintained excellent communication. This switch has saved me from countless headaches. Thanks, Gulf Coast!"


"When my family moved out of state for work, we found that the market didn’t support our home at a price that we felt comfortable to sell, so we cultivated the idea of leasing our home. I was referred to Gulf Coast Property Management by a friend who also uses them to manage her property. Gulf Coast has provided us with quality communication and updates about our home. The team is friendly, quick and knowledgable."


"Gulf Coast has done an extraordinary job managing the rental of my home in Lakewood Ranch since I moved out of state. I have complete peace of mind knowing that my property is well managed. Andy and his team are highly knowledgeable in all aspects of property management, and deliver detailed financial reporting, maintenance support, and timely responses. Finding a good property manager is difficult and peace of mind is priceless."


"After an extensive search for a quality property manager in Sarasota, we reached out to Gulf Coast Property Management. We were initially impressed with their reputation. We learned about the company’s structure and were intrigued with their fresh take on rental management. They embrace technology and their market knowledge to deliver a great user experience. Gulf Coast has been a hassle-free solution for all of our management needs."

This experience has been a pleasure from day 1. All of our concerns have always been dealt with in a very timely and efficient manner. We are being kept updated on everything happening at our property without feeling like we're being spammed.
Chelsea is amazing to deal with, she replies to and acts on emails faster than I've ever experienced with anyone else on the property market. Even a Friday evening 6pm has not held her back from communicating information between our tenants and us.

I had the pleasure of working with Laurie to find our new home and have Kelly as my property manager. Everything has gone better than I could have hoped or imagined. We began very stressed trying to find a home and when we came across the house we chose, Laurie was so kind during the showing and made everything so easy after that point. Kelly has been wonderful since we started living here and been super helpful with any questions we have. We are so happy this was our first experience moving into a home!

Scott has proved to be a personal, professional and people oriented person to work with. He spent time to look over things preparing for rental and I felt included through his listening and feedback. He responds promptly and courteously to handle questions in email. In fact I feel like he takes care of everything that I would do and more. I am in process of moving and he reduced my stress level by clarifying tasks that Gulf Coast could complete. He also thinks of things to do I didn't think of and seeks my approval before acting on tasks. He is a class act. My only complaint is that he showed up extra early for initial appt. but that is better than not at all or late! Overall I highly rate him as a welcome presence on Gulf Coast staff. I already feel part of their team with dignity and respect.

As a long-term Plantation rental guests, my husband and I want to thank Elaine Dexter at making our visits a fantastic experience. Everything runs smoothly when she is in charge. She goes out of her way to handle any problem or concern (be it large or small) with a sense of urgency & commitment. You can tell that she truly cares! Looking forward to seeing Elaine in November, because I know that our visit will be a memorable one. We know we will be in good hands with no worries at all.
