Your Home Manager is your local, dedicated point of contact for any questions or issues regarding your home. They can be reached by phone or text, Monday - Friday.

After hours and weekends, our virtual team takes over! Virtual Home Managers are also available via phone or text, and they can address any issues that arise from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. (your local Pacaso time). Phone: 844-2PACASO | Text: 415-840-8802

Hosting Guests Made Easy

Invite guests to access stay details

Give your guests a seamless experience in your home — even if you’re not there. Invite guests to your stay details in the Pacaso app, where they can access arrival and departure information, Wi-Fi, details of amenities, home manager contact and more.

What to expect from our team

Your Home Manager supports you by:

  • Addressing urgent issues during your stay (e.g., HVAC failure)
  • Working to resolve non-emergency issues as quickly as possible (e.g., faulty ice maker)
  • Answering questions about home devices and equipment (e.g., Wi-Fi, pool settings)
  • Helping with the app and scheduling
  • Following up on post-stay survey responses and acting as a liaison between owners, Pacaso Property Management (or third-party partners) and Pacaso operations.

Your Home Manager is also a great local resource. They're happy to share tips and suggestions, but they do not provide services such as:

  • Making reservations
  • Childcare/nanny procurement
  • Event planning


Our Service Promise

Modern Kitchen

As a Pacaso owner, you can expect your home to be beautifully furnished, meticulously maintained, stocked with household essentials and ready for a comfortable stay — every time you walk through the door.

Owner requests

We welcome input from owners and review all home-related requests. Owner requests are considered with respect to:

  • Remaining budget for the LLC
  • The ongoing expenses associated with the request (if any)
  • Whether the request will materially change the look and/or functionality of the home

Requests will then be approved, denied or put to an owner vote. You can direct your requests or any questions about the approval process to your Home Manager.

Good neighbors

We want Pacaso ownership to be an enjoyable experience for everyone. By agreeing to our common-sense, respectful policies, all owners can feel assured that their home is being well cared for and they are being good neighbors in their second home communities.

We hope you’ll love your Pacaso for years to come. But if it’s time to make a change, you have options. 

  • Pacaso Home Transfer Benefit: If your Pacaso isn’t a perfect fit, you can transfer ownership to another Pacaso within your first year. We make it easy — there’s no closing or transfer fee, and you can start using your new home right away.
  • Resale: If you decide to sell your ownership, our resale process is streamlined and simple. We have an active marketplace of interested buyers, so we can often facilitate a sale without even listing. We will also market your share broadly across Pacaso and other real estate sites.
