OUR VALUES

OUR VALUES

Dedicated to Being a Positive INFLUENCE
in EACH OF OUR CommunitIES

EQUALITY

Open Air Homes recognizes the inherent cultural biases in the rental vacation market. We never discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran status, or national origin.

DIVERSE COMMUNITies

We believe that no tenant should ever be evicted to convert a long term rental into a short term rental. We are committed to realizing this value by never managing homes that have evicted tenants in order to rent short term.
We believe that a diverse and thriving community has a mixture of homeowners, long term renters, short term renters, high and low-end hotels, hostels, and other housing options.

SUSTAINABILITY

We expect our homeowners to commit to moving towards sustainable practices. We only partner with homeowners that prioritize solar, energy-efficient appliances and other methods to reduce the carbon footprint of our homes.

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

We have always paid our fair share of transient occupancy taxes and property taxes on our homes. Paying the entirety of our taxes helps the communities in which we operate to thrive, as these cities and their residents rely on hotel tax funds for a multitude of improvement projects. We are proud to contribute to the betterment of our communities by paying our fair share of taxes.

RESPECT

The instant book feature that most platforms promote can lead to bad actors renting homes in the communities we love. We value respectful guests above profits, so our team evaluates each booking to ensure a wonderful experience for both our guests and homeowners.

FAIR WAGES

We pay our cleaners, maintenance people, gardeners and contract workers fair, livable wages. We are proud to have employees who have been with our company for 8+ years, and we demonstrate our appreciation by operating under fair pay contracts.
