Growing a Business While Giving Back with Coconut Condos’ Angie Leone

Continuing a series of interviews featuring our favorite speakers from the 2021 Vacation Rental Managers Association International Conference in San Antonio, Texas, we sit down with Angie Leong, owner and CEO of Coconut Condos, a vacation rental management company founded in 2011 on the beautiful island of Maui. 

We talk about recognizing the tipping point between running things part-time on your own and hiring people to turn your STR project into a full-time business. We also discuss his perspective on approaching rental growth, riding pandemic policies in Hawaii, and how you can participate in the Dream Foundation.




It’s time for #strsharesunday and today we are sharing Cozy Escapes!

This rental is located in Shenandoah, Virginia, and completely took our breath away. The imagery that they feature on their instagram account is absolutely unreal and makes you want to immediately pack up and visit.

They let you know that it’s a family friendly place, but they also let you know what you might want to bring that you might forget that might enhance your stay. They have done a wonderful job in their listing letting people know exactly just how far off the beaten path their rental is, including details about the gravel road and what vehicles may or may not be a good idea to travel it with.

This serves as a great reminder that even if something is second nature to you, it may not be to everyone else, and it’s always better to include these kinds of details in your listing.

Rachel and John have done an excellent job with their listing, so well done! Be sure to give them some love on their instagram!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!
