“The reality is that people don’t plan every week of their year in advance. Pacaso co-ownership strikes this nice balance of having flexibility while also giving people the certainty to secure dates that are important to them. That’s what Pacaso offers because we want to be reflective of how people actually live and travel.”SmartStay has its name for a reason — the custom platform is powered by the Pacaso app and doesn’t rely on draft booking or a ranking order to determine dates. Instead, using algorithms and systems to ensure equity, owners can see availability and secure their stay instantly. As a Pacaso co-owner, access to your home is proportionate to your amount of ownership. Owners of a 1/8 share, for instance, can generally expect to have access to 1/8 of the total available calendar time each year. On average, owners tend to stay at their homes about 6-7 times each year, for about a week at a time. Your actual usage may vary from year to year depending on your personal travel preferences.You have the flexibility to book stays from 2 to 14 nights in duration (or even longer if you own more than one share). In order to ensure equal access for all co-owners, back-to-back stays are not permitted.Owners of a 1/8 share can book six general stays at a time, including a “special date," and can enjoy unlimited short-notice stays throughout the year.
- General stays can be booked up to two years in advance
- Short-notice stays are booked 2 to 30 days in advance (applies to fully sold homes; for homes with unsold shares, the short-notice booking window is 2 to 7 days)
