Happy Thanksgiving

We wish you, your family and your guests a Happy Thanksgiving! As we reflect on what makes our community so special, we are thankful for our members, our guests, and the support we have received throughout the year for Fredericksburg vacation rentals.


Fredericksburg TX Short-Term Rental Alliance to Join the Rent Responsibly Network

We’re excited to announce we are becoming a part of the Rent Responsibly Network, and with that comes a brand new member portal!

As a member of the Rent Responsibly Network, the Fredericksburg Short-Term Rental Alliance (STRA) will now be offering paid members new exclusive benefits. Members will be able to connect 1:1 with other alliance members and access special hosting resources, articles, on-demand webinars, and other educational offerings in one easy-to-access location.

Being a part of the Rent Responsibly Network will also allow the Fredericksburg STRA to connect with alliances across the country and a suite of national benefits just for groups like ours. 

The official launch of the new Fredericksburg STRA member portal will open on Nov. 27, so keep an eye out in your email for your official invite. And if you’re not a member, now is the time to join to ensure you don’t miss out on important updates, new exclusive benefits, and so much more!

Short-term rentals rely on our local businesses in the community. Small Business Saturday is a great way to give back to our local businesses and encourage guests to get out in our community.

  • Remember to visit small businesses this Saturday

  • Encourage your guest to stop by some of your favorite local businesses and restaurants

  • Provide a gift basket or feature some local products in your homes

A global day of giving back. Join thousands around the world in supporting a cause that is close to your heart. This year, we ask that you consider the Fredericksburg TX Short-Term Rental Alliance for your #GivingTuesday contribution. We believe in responsible short-term rentals in Fredericksburg and understand the value that they bring to our community. 

We also know that advocacy comes in many different shapes and sizes. Besides being your voice at City Hall, we’ve been working as a group of volunteers to provide education in the form of ongoing webinars, worksheets, resources, and tools to help hosts and owners understand the importance of responsible hosting. We’ve also launched a membership program that connects you directly with other STR stakeholders in our community.

Here are some ways you can give back on #GivingTuesday:

Your support does not just help support policy initiatives but the professionalization of our industry within our local community. Join us as we continue to ensure the future of short-term rentals in beautiful Fredericksburg!


Holiday Hosting Essentials:

Safety First

As you prepare to host families this holiday season, making sure your home is up to standard when it comes to safety is a top priority. Checking trip hazards, ensuring you have working fire extinguishers in the proper locations for cooking those family dinners, as well as installing outdoor lighting can make a difference.
